Trying something new with an email campaign and seeing really good results β€” I'm staggering my emails even more so to account for local users' timezones (like I usually do) but also metering out the emails so that the server doesn't get slammed (making for a better user experience in terms of performance). I've noticed a substantial uptick in conversions.
