So one, take a deep, cleansing breathe. We’re email marketers. We are made to deal with the unexpected. We create amazing campaigns with nearly no budget and can even wrangle Outlook to do our bidding. We are going to be okay. The pivot is what we’re good at!

Copywriters, its your time to shine! Now’s a great time to check out your content strategy. If you relied on kitschy subject lines but have neglected your copy and email design, start testing it.
