      Mentioned valid points. Covered all aspects of email marketing but with limited contents. All these days I was at the receiving end reading many promotional mails. I think Subject line is very important. People open promotional mails from companies only when the subject line interest them.

      Definitely a good post. Only two observations are there. It would be better if two subheadings are written as : ” Understand what your Subscribers Look Forward” and “Use Analytic”.
