According to Larry Page the mission for Google Search is to design the perfect search engine which “understands exactly what you mean and gives you back exactly what you want.” Whether it’s a website, image, video, or even an android app, Google Search is primarily used as a catalyst to obtain the best possible resources quickly. In fact, close to 500 billion NEW unique queries have been inserted and tracked in Google’s search engine since 2003. All of which have been used to refine their search engine and bring a more seamless and less cluttered experience to the web.

Thanks to the prevalence of email spam, many companies have become shy to use it for their marketing. This is unfortunate because a good email campaign can bring in a bunch of leads that wouldn’t otherwise be obtained. Of course, good emails require good content so that recipients will be glad to both get and read your emails. Such content generally falls into two categories: Newsletters and promotions. Both styles are important for a good campaign – people love to read news, but they also like to receive special treatment and promotions.
