The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:
Diamond.com, 12/16 — It's Finally Here - Discover the New Diamond.com
After two months of not emailing their subscribers, Diamond.com returns with a new site and new email design. The email is short on explanation—most critically about what’s new, besides the striking cosmetic changes. It’s hard to say definitively from just this one email, but it looks like Diamond.com is trying to take their brand image upmarket a little with the emphasis on a single hero image instead of the big product grid that dominated their previous email design. Here’s the new design (left) and the previous design from an Oct. 14 email:
