Effective use of preheaders in email marketing

We’ve recently mentioned how your email marketing open rates depend to a great extent on your choice of Subject Line. You’ll be pleased to know that they need to be supported by a preheader and that these need as much creativity as the Subject Line. As the preheader is known by other titles, I’ll clarify … READ MORE »

Essentials for your next email subject line

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.

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 »
