Interactivity continues to be one of the hottest trends in email design—and interactive hotspots are one of the most popular interactive elements in a marketer’s toolkit. Hotspots let your subscribers uncover additional information when they hover or click on an item in your email—and allow marketers to provide an additional layer of detail to your emails without making your email design feel too crowded.
Read up on the details of how we designed and coded our hotspots in a recent email with this step-by-step guide.
The email industry is constantly changing, but what are the trends that really matter in the years to come—and how can marketers prepare?
We asked leading industry experts to share their visions for how some of the most crucial elements of email marketing will change in the next decade.

Your subscribers are bombarded with thousands of messages across various channels and it’s harder than ever to make your brand stand out. One way to cut through the noise? Impress them with really good email design.
In this webinar, we took a look at email design trends through the years. How did email look in the early 2000s? Which trends joined the winners’ circle in 2019?

Email geeks, get ready to see more interactive emails in your Gmail inboxes. Today Gmail announced that support for AMP for Email is beginning to roll out to Gmail’s desktop email clients, with support for Gmail’s mobile apps following soon.
We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Gmail to enable support for AMP in Litmus Email Previews for Gmail and G Suite, allowing email marketers to see how their AMP emails render in subscribers’ inboxes. This is a big step in helping marketers develop interactive emails, and we’re excited to continue to invest in and be at the forefront of providing better subscriber experiences.
For the third year in a row, interactive email experiences were voted one of the hottest email design trends. So why don’t we see more interactive emails in our inboxes? For many brands, limited inbox provider support is the main reason they don’t send more interactive campaigns.
But you don’t have to fear limited support if you have a fallback in place. There are plenty of methods that help you create engaging, interactive emails where they are supported, while still guaranteeing a functional and beautiful experience in all other inboxes.
Enthusiasm for interactive email is at an all-time high, with marketers declaring interactive emails the biggest email design trend of 2018. Marketers are right to be excited. However, email’s disruptive evolution from static message to mailable microsite presents many challenges.
Every year leading up to our conferences, we hold a Golden Ticket Giveaway. It’s our way of giving the community a chance to score free tickets to Litmus Live. Just as the Golden Ticket contest has become a tradition at Litmus, so has the email that announces it. Learn what we did this year, and who the lucky winners are.
Marketers are very excited about the prospect of leveraging AMP to easily create interactive experiences for their audiences. But marketers’ excitement isn’t the only factor that will influence the adoption of AMP for Email. In fact, there are some major hurdles that might hinder marketers from even getting started with creating AMP-powered emails.
Every year at Litmus Live, we identify the biggest challenges facing the industry and invite the brilliant email marketers that are facing those challenges to share their hard-won insights with attendees. Topics run the gamut from workflows and email creation to strategy, automation, communication, and more.
Here’s a sneak peak at what we’re planning for Litmus Live 2018.
