Have been in an email scheduling dilemma recently whilst I try to find the optimal sending times – I wouldn’t have even considered post 8pm or the weekend before reading this. Thanks!

I really liked the breath of fresh air that is your experience-based take on email marketing.

However I note one inconsistency in your argument. You are right on the money about how you should think about addressing a spouse; then your “biggest mistake” is the opposite sort of advice! If you’ve built up trust and interest with someone, you don’t need to say 5-10 times in an email to take a certain action. “Please pick up milk on the way home….please pick up milk on the way home…don’t forget the milk!….Milk, OK?”
Sure visitors are on the can, reading a post. But if you are delivering value and they want what you have, do you really think they’re not going to scroll a few centimeters to the bottom, which is the reliable place to find a CTA?

Hey maybe you tested this with real value-building emails, in which case hard data trumps all. But I suspect that if I had directions to the best damn taco hut in Austin, I would not have to shovel 8 CTAs at you in order for you to take action.

Thanks again for a great post.
