Benchmark Email Monthly Newsletter
Dear First Name,
Thank you for reading the Benchmark Email newsletter!
Spring is upon us. I noticed this when at a restaurant that features seasonal cuisines and they were promoting their new spring offerings. No matter the season, email marketing from your international kitchen could be tricky. Luckily we've got a post with just the right recipe. Along with that, we've got an awesome opportunity for small businesses. Share with us and our readers the cool ways in which you promote small business. There's also a new post about our latest email guide on metrics.

This month we added new merge tags for conditional content. That means you can send your newsletter with personalized content to each recipient. We also updated it with the ability to preview the emails for specific contacts. Now personalization should be easier than ever.

Email Marketing from Your International Kitchen

A company that bakes an international pie can get a slice of email efficiency by centralizing IT infrastructure, campaigns and designs. But be aware that different people have different tastes and preferences. Some national email dishes are spicier, some sweeter, while others prefer more subtle flavors. Know your international kitchen and serve your cakes accordingly or they might not get eaten at all.
