The holiday season is quickly approaching and with it comes many opportunities for email marketers. Having a plan for the holidays is essential, given that email marketing drives the most revenue for companies, followed by search and advertising.
However, sending an email that doesn’t stand out is simply a waste of time. It is important to send holiday emails that are well designed, and therefore more likely to motivate a customer take an action.
To help you achieve sustainable ROI from your holiday email campaigns, the experts at EmailMonks have some design tips.
The anatomy of your emails should also directly reflect your brand’s personality. However, start all emails with a clear headline that incentivizes your subscribers to open the email and further engage with the design.
Followed by the headline, use social media icons, your logo or links in your header. Then express your main message in the email (the body), which can be text or an attractive graphic as done by Rybbon in the following email.
If you want to advertise an offer or promotion, use the space beneath the main message. At the very bottom, place an enticing call to action and optimize the footer.
