12 quick content ideas for your next mailing

If you're suffering from a typical case of email writer's block, also known in certain medical circles as I Swear That Blinking Cursor is Mocking Me Disease. It's normal, and it happens to everybody from time to time. In fact, it's a healthy part of your email strategy -- if you're a little tuckered out writing it, there's a chance your recipients may feel the same way about reading it.

So in the spirit of inspiration, we've put together a list featuring a dozen quick content suggestions to spark ideas for your next mailing. It's yours to print, tack up anywhere that's handy and refer to whenever your content needs a little freshening up. Or whenever the blinking cursor starts telling you to assemble an army of robo-ferrets and take down Lord Xoobinar. Whichever comes first, and we'll just hope it's the first one.
