Tips and tricks for better personalization

Since you may not have captured the names of every one of your subscribers, you need to be careful how you use name personalization in your messages.

Always make sure that your message makes sense even if there is no name to insert. Be especially careful with commas and other punctuation.

For instance if you type a greeting line as:

Hello {!firstname_fix},

Then a subscriber whose name you don't have would get a message that started out:

Hello ,

Looks strange, doesn't it? To eliminate the odd appearance of the extra comma, only use one comma:

Hello {!firstname_fix}

This way John Doe's e-mail will read:

Hello John

A subscriber whose name you don't have will get an e-mail that starts:

Hello

Much better.
