Like any good marketing (especially content marketing), know your audience and have a relationship with them. 

@CMIContent A1 The best email subject lines reflect what you know about your segmented list’s needs/concerns. No 1-size-fits-all. #cmworld

A4 Use email to start a conversation. Share content that can be discussed on Facebook/Twitter, etc. Ask questions. #cmworld

…and like any good email marketing…remember the laws and be compliant!

This one’s actually the law! Be wary, email marketers. #CMWorld https://t.co/URttzT8w2s
