3. Define a goal for your e-mail campaign. Now that you know which group to contact, the next step is to define the goal of your message. Like direct mail, e-mails should have a specific purpose and/or a call to action.

The success of your e-mail campaign will be based on how it helped you accomplish your specific goal.
