Next level of courses should be offered on this subject. "...it would be great to dive deeper into specifics on the subject."

So much useful, fresh, and new info, ideas, links, and resources. I am on the 'design end' of email marketing and this class gave me great insight into the user/customer/prospect. [The instructor had] a good, fast pace, but always approachable and direct in answering questions. [She] presented a ton of information in a clear, prioritized way with good choice real life examples, businesses, and companies to show.
