  1. Created a simple and scannable layout with better hierarchy. This made it easier for readers to quickly scan the email and find the content that was most relevant to them.
  2. Introduced more imagery on the content. This made the emails more visually appealing and helped to break up the text, making it easier to read.
  3. Excluded unengaged contacts. This helped to ensure that the emails were only being sent to people who were actually interested in receiving them.
