Can We Avoid Using Clichés In Email Marketing?

You will note that the heading is a question. This is not a list of clichés to avoid like the plague, but more when you can use them to your advantage. You should exercise care, but you can say that about all words in an email marketing campaign. Some clichés are pleonasms, such as bent … READ MORE »

Using Humour In An Email Marketing Campaign

The film Gattaca had four letters, ATGC, highlighted on posters and the title sequence. I found it graphically jarring. I was told later, by a rather smug IT-type, the letters were, pause for a little titter, the initials of the building four blocks of DNA, and the design was rather ‘clever’. It seemed I was … READ MORE »

How To Choose A Voice For A Marketing Email

You don’t use the same tone of voice to speak with all of your friends, relatives and colleagues. It would be inappropriate. You tend to be serious in the office, especially when your contract is up for renewal. With friends, you’ll be more light-hearted. Not perhaps quite so jovial when discussing the appalling performance of … READ MORE »

Add Lightness To Your Email Campaign

In bygone days, where there were no minimum weight limits, there was an adage in a formula one team design studio that ran; ‘simplify and add lightness’. It has a certain ring to it. As adages go, it covers all the essentials. It was expressed by others in a manner not quite so musically; ‘the … READ MORE »

Research Can Improve Your Email Marketing

In-depth research is a great method to improve performance. It is expensive, so it’s much better if someone else does it for you. Recent, well supported, research shows that the best wordage for an email marketing campaign is between 75 and 100 words. You should treat the research of others with care, especially if you … READ MORE »

Make Your Email Campaigns Stand Out

Are your marketing emails predictable? Does the new one look just like the last one? When’s the last time you experimented?  The probable answer is that there is a certain sameness to your emails. Why should you be different? I view dozens of marketing emails each week and the most depressing thing is that they … READ MORE »

Design Email Campaigns For Your Subscribers

  Way back, when I was in art college, we were given the task of coming up with poster ideas for the redevelopment of a local town’s market square. You might think, correctly, that this was way before targeting by splitting email marketing lists, but my lack of precision as to audience got my original design … READ MORE »

A New Email Design For The New Year/Decade

Now is a good time to go for a redesign of your marketing emails. We have a new year, a new decade, a new relationship with Europe and the world. There’s enough reasons there for everyone. You could farm out the redesign. I would not criticise you for doing so. It’s a great method of … READ MORE »

Advantages Of Autoresponders

There’s something deliciously subversive about autoresponders. Once set up, you can sit back and relax, at least until the returns come in. You will have time to concentrate on other aspects of email marketing. What could be wrong with that? In short, nothing. It’s difficult finding dependable detailed statistics for autoresponders other than they repay … READ MORE »

Images: Pretty But Not Stunning

I’ve just been to see the annual prize-winning images at a local photographic club. It was a treat, with some quite remarkable, and affecting, pictures that you might consider putting in your living room. They caught the attention with their composition, use of colour and subject matter. None, of course would be any use for … READ MORE »
