    Something's missing. Personalization (and the underlying data analysis that makes it relevant) takes care of the most important component of any mailing -- the list. Yet the second highest priority -- the offer -- isn't given any emphasis. Not even a mention.

    If the design doesn't make the offer instantly clear and draw the eye to it immediately, the mailing won't get the desired response.
