AM Inbox: Firing off a list of benefits

Executive Series on Email Marketing: How Email Marketing Is Different from Direct Mail. Download this free report now.

The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:

Urban Outfitters, 6/25 — URBAN IN YR MOBILE‏
Urban Outfitters announces that they’ve launched a mobile website. Two things that I like about this email: (1) I like how Urban Outfitters uses highlighting to create buttons. None of the other retailers I track does that, so it’s unique designwise. And (2) I like their use of bullets and short copy listed the benefits. Bullets are used much more in B2B marketing, but there are certainly opportunities for B2C marketers to use them. They make emails much more scannable.
