Getting the “from” name right
I’ve learned about the importance of the “from” name in email blasts.
Changing that up to something people recognize more can have a serious impact on your open rates and the number of people who unsubscribe or mark your email as spam.
You may think you know what “from” name is best (I thought I did), but when you start A/B testing it, you may find out that another name can make a huge difference. Getting the “from” name right probably won’t make or break your business, but it is low-hanging fruit that can make your email campaigns much more effective.

I’ve found that by engaging prospects with thoughtful, open-ended questions I can help them sell themselves on the need they’ve presented.
Listen, Ask, Open Doors are steps 1, 2 and 3.
