Creating an email program is a lot like adding a set of stairs to a building. Stairs are standard for multi-level buildings—much like an email program is standard for a marketing campaign. But while stairs work, you might have to go a step further. You might need to add ramps for individuals in wheelchairs, or carrying rolling luggage. Maybe you have a building where an elevator makes the most sense in addition to a stairwell. Sometimes, escalators make the most sense. It’s the same way for email—you’re building an email program with many different kinds of subscribers and you simply need to think past your basic “stairs.”
How can we create emails that are easy to read for everyone? An important step is giving subscribers the autonomy to configure their own inbox experience to their needs.
There are built-in solutions in most operating systems to adjust the text size and contrast, but most don’t work well inside the inbox. So as email marketers, we have to take the matter into our own hands.
Email developer Paul Airy shares how an Accessibility Switcher™ lets your subscribers increase the font size or change the color contrast of your email, making it more accessible to a wider audience.

As with most email trends, bringing abstractions to your layout helps your email stand out, elevating your messaging within busy inboxes. Going off-grid makes your creative unpredictable, builds curiosity, and demands attention which entices your subscribers to engage with your content.
Check out these brands that let their emails break free from rigid grid layouts to create truly unique email experiences.

Email engagement is like a black box for many email marketers. Too often, marketers only look at opens and clicks, but have no insight into what happens in between. Like in any marketing discipline, better insights are the foundation to improving campaign performance in email marketing. So it’s surprising how many email marketers heavily rely on metrics that only scratch the surface of the subscriber experience.
