Email Analysis

Look to other professions for subject lines

I’ve mentioned before, and will mention again, that in order to get ahead of your competitors you must go outside of email marketing to look for ideas that might work for you. Take Subject Lines.  I’ve just written a book and I’m struggling, as always, to come up with the perfect title. It is non-fiction … READ MORE »

Create lists for your summer email campaigns

Have you ever forgotten the obvious items you needed for a holiday? It’s a rhetorical question of course. Who hasn’t started out for the beach looking for a shop that sells sun cream at a price which won’t make you turn red in the face? This is a gap that email marketing can fill.  I’ll … READ MORE »

Email marketing makes happy campers

I used to go camping, way back when; in a tent no less. I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially with my new family. However, the first few times I always turned up at a camp site with one or two items gone AWOL. I took to keeping a list, together with a ‘replace by’ date. I’m … READ MORE »

Is ‘Buy British’ effective in email marketing?

Never go against history. If it did not succeed the first, second and third time, try something else. The past has an inertia that is difficult to overcome.

Email marketing and the rise of veganism

The first thing to do is not panic. The figures suggest that just 3% of the adult population is vegan. However, the numbers are increasing, and you should monitor how they change. Tesco’s own brand of vegan foods, rather oddly named Wicked Kitchen, has been going for over a year. It proudly states on its … READ MORE »

Is Email Marketing Okay For Vegans?

Veganism has largely passed me by. There’s little on the subject in the reports on specialist email marketing sites. However, it was brought home to me this Easter, almost literally.  A friend of mine is in the process of having his kitchen refitted and we offered him and his family a cooked lunch and dinner on … READ MORE »

Targeting your campaign using age alone

I have a neighbour who is 67. He’s grey-haired, a bit overweight and is often seen pushing his youngest grandchild around in a wheelchair. This year he will drive in a motor race for the first time. He says that he’s not your typical grandad, but then, no one is. We use many ways to … READ MORE »

Don’t cheat those on your email list

There are a number of regulations which limit what advertisers can promise or even suggest in an advert.
