  2. TRAFFIC --------------------- Email traffic emerged as one of the top five referrers for the BuzzFeed website. While they accumulated over 1 million email subscribers in 2014 alone, they expect 2015 to be far higher.
  3. LOVE YOUR USERS --------------------- People are protective over their in-boxes. Put as much effort into your newsletter strategy as you do designing your home page or creating new business cards.
  4. EXCELLENCE --------------------- Focus on GREAT, not good content. It may be the most important business decision you ever make.
