It's impossible to actually do a poll, everyone will have a unique story.. however, we'd like to hear it. At what point did you see something that made you want to get into email marketing? Was it a friend or business associate? Something you read online? At what point did you say "I'm going to try this" and begin investing money into the planning? Noobs, this is definitely for you to fill out as well, so we can get to know who you are, please introduce yourselves and tell us why you are wearing a mailing hat!
