* Strategic Timing Tips for Resend Campaigns 
We analyzed 1,300 campaigns and their corresponding resend campaigns to see if we could find what factors make resend campaigns successful. The first question I want to answer today is: How long should you wait to resend a campaign? Note: These charts don’t show the engagement rates of the resend campaign. Instead, they show additional metrics from the resend campaign as if they were added to the engagement metrics from the original campaign. We liked this measurement because it demonstrates the real [...]

Unboxing eDataSource: The Tool that Started it All 
Last week I had a rare experience of a lifetime: seeing the evolution of an idea I had in my garage 13 years ago fully transformed into a powerful marketing tool used around the world. And for me it was an incredibly humbling experience. Let me explain: In 2003, one of the leading Advertising Agencies asked for my help in finding a vendor that provided competitive intelligence tool for email. What I discovered was, back then, there were no vendors who were monitoring competitive email campaigns. In [...]

"Brand Newsletters" cartoon 
Most brands have some form of newsletter to connect with customers. But for many brands, more emphasis is placed on getting people to sign up than on giving them a reason to sign up. Last week David Hieatt, founder of Hiut Denim and the Do Lectures gave a workshop in London on the power of the humble email newsletter. I didn’t go to the workshop, but how he described it got me thinking about this often overlooked communication tool: [...]

Using Interactive Email to Highlight Content 
Interactive email is a topic hot on everybody's lips; it’s what everyone wants to be sending out. Day by day we see new clever examples popping up, but to quote Elliot Ross, "Flashy design for no reason is confusing and awkward." In this post, I'll show you how I used interactive elements to highlight areas of our product in a recent email, and how good content can go hand-in-hand with interactive email.  [...]

Sending Apology Emails: 3 Design Tips for Saying "Oops!" [GFX]
Wrap-up: Creating apology emails Issuing an apology doesn’t have to be painful. When you’re designing your apology email, follow these simple steps: Start with the subject line. It should be clear in just a few words that your email is a correction and an apology. Try words like “Correction,” “oops,” and “sorry.” Position your correction, update, and apology at the top of your email.

Millennials’ Email Marketing Dislikes Are (Mostly) the Same as Everyone Else’s  
Despite millennials having a reputation for being different from everyone else, their email behavior is very similar to that of older generations when it comes to the things that drive them to unsubscribe and report emails as spam. Our Adapting to Consumers’ New Definition of Spam research, which surveyed more than 1,300 American adults, found that roughly the same percentage of millennials (age 18-29) and those from older generations (age 30+) have [...]

Across the marketing mix, the top channels used for collecting data for personalisation are websites (40%), [...]

DMA Insight: Consumer email tracking study 2016 [PDF] 1.8mb
Unfortunately, this year customers feel they have been subjected to too many emails, too many irrelevant emails, and too many emails from companies they don’t recognise. Their faith in the channel has been shaken. This is bad news for brands, for marketers using email and for the medium itself. We know that consumers like brand messages to be about them, for them and relevant to them. Fortunately, there remains residual consumer goodwill towards email. Despite potential overuse of email by brands, [...]

Is Google Trying to Kill the Mobile Pop-Up? 
Pop-ups and interstitials will still be allowed on the desktop version without penalty, which is good news for retailers looking to grow their subscriber file while still using these methods.

If you would like to see how mobile-friendly your website currently is, Google has a quick and easy tool for that. While there’s still plenty of time to prepare before January, [...]

Emoji Support in Email: Can Your Subscribers See Them? 
Emojis take the standard text smiley face and bring it to the next level. For any reaction, whether you’re happy, crying laughing, or relieved, emojis allow you to express how you’re feeling.

Does a dedicated IP mean a single IP? 
Dedicated pools are usually fine to use in certain circumstances. The rule of thumb I use is that an IP is good for about a million emails a day. Companies that are consistently sending more than that may want to consider adding more IP addresses to handle the volume. When sending from a pool of IPs, rather than a single IP, there are a few things to remember. [...]
