tactics Why Should You Care About Inbox Clipping?

Inbox clipping occurs when an email is sent to a Gmail domain and is larger than 102kB, at which point Gmail “clips” the message and requires the recipient to click on a “View entire message” link to see the full code. This size restriction includes anything within the email itself, including text, images, links, tracking codes, responsive elements, and anything else within the HTML. This can happen with other domains in a similar fashion, but we’ll focus on Gmail due to overall consumer adoption [...] [more]

discussion How Much Does It Cost to Hire an Email Marketing Agency?

One of the questions I consistently hear during the first call with a prospective client is, “How much does an email agency cost?” or “How do email agencies structure their fees?” In reality, price is an important screener for both parties. For the buyer, it’s important to know if the budget is enough to hire a full-service email-marketing firm.

tactics 7 Preview Text Mistakes and How You Can Fix Them

Preview text is the copy that follows the subject line in many email client inboxes, both mobile and desktop. It’s another tool for recipients to screen their emails and determine which are worthy of an open.

discussion Customer Testimonials and Social Proofs in Email

If your company enjoys a generally favorable reputation online, this technique could be a very effective tool. If you have a decent amount of “rabid fans” willing to evangelize on your behalf, especially if they’re already doing so undirected on social media, this type of social proof email could provide exactly the type of convincing necessary to convert shoppers into customers. Envy (and envy’s cousin, FOMO [fear of missing out]) can be a great motivator. [...] [more]

tactics The Power Of Being Human In Email

Being human in email is hard. Brands struggle to find the perfect combination of a value proposition, voice and their desired call to action in email. For years smart marketers have been trying to leverage social media and what it has taught us in email. When I speak with clients, or conferences and even webcasts I always reference the desire for companies to add a more humanized approach to email marketing because that is what social taught us. I often bring up examples of what brands do to move [...] [more]
