Want to Get Better at Targeted Mailing? Use the 40/40/20 Marketing Rule image

The 40/40/20 marketing rule may have a somewhat enigmatic name - but in reality, the approach it's describing couldn't be more straightforward. In essence, it's a theory that says that the ultimate success (not to mention return on investment) of your campaign is essentially relying on three core factors: 40% of your success is directly related to how effective your mailing list is. Another 40% ties back into how compelling your offer is. The remaining 20% comes from literally everything else.
