Being blacklisted is an email marketer’s nightmare, but for many marketers it’s a threat that’s somewhat theoretical. Being caught on a blacklist is something that only happens to spammers and brands that don’t follow email best practices, right?
Getting your emails to look flawless in all popular email clients and devices is a key challenge for many email marketers, especially when expectations for email quality are high and the deadlines tight.
But quality and speed don’t have to be a trade-off. Chris Kaundart shares how Trello uses Litmus to create consistently great email experiences for all subscribers while, at the same time, cutting down production times.
When your email team is small, it’s nearly impossible to manage your entire email program without looping in outside help. As a result, many email marketers rely on colleagues from other departments to help execute their campaigns. But how do you ensure email quality by experts and non-experts alike, while at the same time allowing your email program to scale?
Sean Kennedy, Product Marketer at Zapier, shares how his team uses Litmus to empower the entire marketing team to send email, while at the same time reducing errors and improving the overall quality of their email campaigns.
Ashley Morse, Email Designer & Developer at Lenovo, shares how her team uses Litmus to cut email testing and production time in half, increase productivity, and get quality emails out the door, faster.
Clients will often come to you with preconceived notions of what their subscriber base looks like. However, it takes a robust marketing program—complete with plenty of testing and data—to truly pinpoint subscriber engagement. What content interests their subscribers? Where and how are they viewing your client’s messages? Are they forwarding or printing any particular campaigns? Answering these questions ensures that your team delivers a quality data-driven campaign that truly engages your client’s subscribers, thus positioning your team as a true “full service agency” and strategic marketing partner going forward.
Managing subscriptions, reporting, and analytics across these two distinct platforms presents a unique challenge. Curated founder, Dave Verwer, found that utilizing standard open racking and ESP analytics wasn’t an option—they’d be missing out on crucial push notification data. Faced with the option of creating their own email tracking platform, or integrating with an existing solution, Curated decided that the Litmus Email Analytics API was their best solution.
While your email service provider’s click data may help you determine which articles and calls-to-action resonate best with your audience, and their open data can enable you to make inferences about which subject lines work best, Email Analytics data can help you take things to the next level. Let’s talk about some ways to take this data and use it to improve your campaigns.
