Let’s take a quiz to check your email marketing skills


Now that you’ve developed a Marketing List, what do you do with it?

Send it out with stuff on it, right?

We’ve spent four weeks looking at how to and how not to develop a marketing list that you can use to show your available space, property for sale or needing debt or equity. We also went over how to develop a list to send to users of space or properties. Now that you have developed the list you wanted and it is ready to use, what is the best way to get the most out of it? I thought it would be fun to have a short quiz to check your email skills!

So answer as best as you can. The prize for the most correct is making more money than those who don’t score as well!

Here are a few questions.
