How sending a more personal follow-up affects registrations Experiment ID: #8480
Timeframe: 1/16/2018 - 1/19/2018
When sending a re-send of a webinar promotional email, we thought that crafting an email that looked more like a personal email forward – without appearing spammy – could increase the likelihood of someone responding and registering for the webinar.
Will sending a follow-up email that appears more like a genuine email forward increase webinar registrations?
