Every email list is a special unicorn. How do you know what messaging motivates your supporters? What subject lines grab their attention? Which layout will get them to click through? Are graphic emails really all that? The answers to all of those questions—and more—are a simple email test away. In this session, attendees will learn the basics of email testing, including what makes an effective test, what tools they need to start testing, testing best practices, how to analyze the results of a test and how to apply those lessons to future emails.
