I am frequently asked what the "right" level of e-mail integration coupled with contact strategy should be. Maybe you can take a peek Lands' End and their actual e-mail strategy into my e-mail inbox (I'm guessing they have multiple versions of e-mail campaigns, and even send them to different customers on different days), and decide for yourself. Is this good strategy? Or would you do something different?
