The idea of creating Email program as an asset within a program is to have the ability to track progression statuses in a better way with the original program being the one tracking statuses.

      

5. Give a Program name and choose the type and channel:

12. Define the subject lines for the email on which we are trying to test and choose the sample size of the test:

In the above example, we chose 20% as the sample size and we have 4 subject lines to test. So 5% of the audience list will each receive email with a particular subject line and the winner will be send to the remaining 80%.

 

13. Define the Winner criteria based on which the email would be treated as a winner and you can also declare winner manually after viewing the test results:
