If you haven’t already started your holiday email marketing, you probably should have. That’s the advice of a new complimentary e-book from MDG Advertising. According to “12 Holiday Email Marketing Secrets You Can Use, Right Now,” 40% of consumers start their holiday shopping before the end of October. Perhaps even more important, 49% of marketers launch holiday campaigns before Halloween. There’s a good chance your biggest competitor may be one of them.
This useful e-book goes on to give additional reasons why starting early is good, but also why you need to adjust your start date for specific events like Cyber Monday. You’ll get tips for creating a greater sense of urgency, as well as a few surprising tactics to rev up your response rate.
Here’s a quick sampling of some of this e-book’s insights:

You’ll learn “When to Start Sending,” “Key Optimization Tactics,” What’s Different in 2015,” and “How to Finish Strong.” Each section is well organized, providing just what you need to know and nothing you don’t.
