Another great week here @ The eMail Guide!
You’ve no doubt heard me sing the praises of Mark Brownlow from Email Marketing Reports on more than one occasion and with good reason. Mark consistently cuts through the BS and delivers the kind of analysis and advice which makes one slap their forehead and wonder why they didn’t think of that.
My post this week about how communities drive the web is a good example. The post might be OK, but what’s really worth reading in it are Mark’s comments. He manages to make my post by comparison look like an owner’s manual for the space shuttle. Being brilliant is one thing, but being concise and brilliant is genius. I suggest you check out what he has to say.
