Saying goodbye is never easy. It can be difficult and complicated, but when it comes to your email program it may be a necessary task. What makes it so difficult for marketers to say farewell?

But determining how much silence is equivalent to “so long” varies by customer.
We are all human – and that means a lot of things, but mostly it means that we aren’t perfect. As an imperfect species that means that sometimes…mistakes happen.

The fact is, how one handles a mistake is frequently more important than the mistake itself.
