The Death of e-Mail Marketing

Finishing the First Round

This is a response to John's last and final article regarding the "Death of e-Mail Debate". It seems John has had enough of our little battle and to tell you the truth, in a way, I've had enough as well ... just probably not in a manner you would expect. But more on that in the next article ...
