  • My god _ I did that in 1998 ... when I was looking for a job of course without tracking || Hopefully mass mailing (list of 200 | 500 people in a dedicated business or 500) can work too with open rate of 50 % and click rate of 20 % but for sure you need to be unique, specific and urgent.

  • Where does all this fall under the CAN-SPAM laws? These are not transactional emails, as there has not been any purchase or prior relationsship. I assume these type of emails are being sent more than once per day and potentially used in bulk. I believe these would require an unsubscribe link or opt-out message. Am I correct?

  • You've misspelled your own product name in slide 40 in the HEADLINE! "Sidekcik". And I cannot find anywhere on your website a way to contact your team to notify them about this. Seems pretty amateurish for such a competent organization as Hubspot. I'm betting that this post will sit unanswered and the slide uncorrected for a long time.
