Be agile. If we learned anything from 2020 as email marketers we need to be able to be ready and flex at any moment. Don't be stuck in a routine and send emails on only Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Don't be afraid to experiment and fail. You won't know what idea will work until you test it out. Failure teaches you way more than success does.

Be a generalist before you become a specialist. Don't try to be one-dimensional in your approach to email marketing. Explore all of email: HTML, copywriting, product marketing, deliverability, and more.

Email Marketing is a very broad channel, but there is a lot of different types of email. Becoming very well-versed in transactional, informational, customer retention, and customer acquisition style emails can be very valuable for anyone in the space.
