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.
Despite outcries against old markup from decades past, the email world is changing fast. Long gone are the days where email designers were truly limited by the constraints of technology. See what the future has in store for the email world.
In case you haven’t been paying attention, there are two things we love here at Litmus: email and data. (Well, three things if you include Xbox FIFA.) We’ve tracked billions of opens across hundreds of thousands of campaigns in Email Analytics. If you love email and data as much as we do, you probably dig into your Email Analytics data shortly after you hit send.
Many of the questions we get from Email Analytics customers revolves around how to interpret this data. How do I know if I’m getting better? How do I know if my audience has “gone mobile”? The best thing to do is to compare your campaigns to each other over time.
