AM Inbox: Introducing Deal of the Hour

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

Coach Factory Online, 5/10 -- Now $79: Deal #1 at the Deal of the Hour Event!
Move over Deal of the Day… Coach Factory Online has started rolling out Deal of the Hour campaigns. A surefire way to keep the serious shopaholic engaged, Coach is offering twelve deals with special pricing, with a new deal every hour, on the hour. In order to avoid flooding their subscriber's inboxes with a dozen emails in one day, Coach sends the emails for a third of the deals: #1, #4, #7, and #10. Ordinarily, four email in one day from a single retailer would constitute over-saturation in my book, but I think it works in this case. Enough to keep the sense of urgency going, but not so much as to be obnoxious.
