Marketers must have a full grasp of not only which message to send to whom and at what point but also how to get their messages into the recipients’ inbox in the first place.

Myth: Father Knows Best. It’s Time to A/B Test.

Father Knows Best was an American comedy that ran on radio and then television from 1949 to 1960. The character of Jim (Father) has strong influence over his family with the best of intentions. I mean, just look at this guy. He radiates confidence and authority. With a character like Jim, it’s easy to forget the most important, invisible star that made this show a long running smash hit: The Audience.

Likewise, businesses with talented, well-meaning employees may also forget the unseen star of the company’s online success:
