Forget forward to a friend, you need the Samuel L. Jackson marketing hack

Less than a minute read

Do you regularly use forward-to-a-friend links in your email? Perhaps it’s working, but perhaps it isn’t? Step forward the Samuel L. Jackson marketing hack.

Last week we were amused (and delighted) to find this rather straightforward idea – the kind of idea where you say to yourself “why didn’t I think of that?!”.

Instead of using forward-to-a-friend functionality, you simply create a blank mailto template that your subscribers can click, enter an email address and share with their friends. And it works!
