When setting up your campaign you should have enough material for at least 4 emails, the emails can follow on form the last one and emboss confidence in your products and services.
You should write the emails clear and to the point backed up by great imagery, you should also know your product inside out and know what your competition has to offer the market place as you will be asked these question, so be prepared.
The format of the email should be pleasing to the eye and not be too heavily text laden as you only have around 10 seconds after the email is opened to engage with the potential lead, this is where the deal is won or lost.
