This year you can expect to see more personalized emails, as well as more interactive emails. For the second year in a row, those two email design trends stood out above all others, according to a Litmus poll of more than 240 marketers.
The next tier of email design trends included using more AI-driven content and live content, and simplifying email designs. The other eight email design trends that we asked marketers about received a bit less enthusiasm, although they’re all still likely to be important this year.
We know that switching back and forth between tools can be a hassle, so we’re working hard to help you integrate Litmus with the email tools you use most. Today, we’ve got exciting news for everyone who uses Salesforce Marketing Cloud to develop and deploy marketing campaigns. With our brand new integration, you can now access Litmus right within Email Studio, Salesforce Marketing Cloud’s email marketing solution, to view real-time previews of your emails in 70+ popular email clients and devices—all without ever leaving Salesforce Marketing Cloud.
Personalization, automation, and A/B testing top the list of 2018 email marketing priorities for brands, according to Litmus’ 2018 State of Email Survey of nearly 3,000 marketers. However, when it comes to email marketing spending, the integration of email with other channels is tops.
In this webinar, Litmus Research Director Chad White and expert email developer and Litmus Product Manager Kevin Mandeville identify the top 5 opportunities to improve your email creative strategy, based on the findings of Litmus’ 2017 State of Email Creative research report. But we don’t just give you the insights, we share practical how-to advice to help you execute on each opportunity at your brand.
Email marketing can be a finicky beast, with the industry landscape shifting without warning. The past year saw the launch of a new version of Apple’s mobile operating system (iOS 10), acquisitions by Verizon and Microsoft, and the introduction of new privacy regulations around the world—to name just a few of the issues impacting email marketers today. With the State of Email 2017 report, we give you the trends, innovations, and data you need to build successful email marketing programs in 2017.
The Community Spotlight is a blog series highlighting some of the amazing members of the Litmus Community. This time we’re chatting with Sam Sexton, an email marketer from England. Litmus Live London attendees will recognize him from his talk last year on how to code “reverse responsive” email designs.
