Updated: Nov 9, 2020
It is an important that we do our job better whatever field we are working in. As a marketing person specially in this digital world everything moves fast. Every second there is a new content image, text, and video published by someone. An hour ago, you could come up with a new idea which already posted in your neighborhood. The good thing about digital world, you can easily find an inspiration and examples.
Although, it is quite hard to find email marketing examples. Maybe it is related with those people who think email marketing is died. If email marketing is died, how would you explain: bank sends your monthly payroll statement, twitter sends your daily followers statistics, apple sends you the products you may interested in etc. Therefore email is still alive and important and marketers like us need to write an ideas to new joiners into this field.
According to Litmus Study, receivers spend the least amount of time reading emails for less that 3 seconds (see image below). It means whatever you are going to sell or advertise make it short, sweet, clear and eye catchy.
