The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:
Neiman Marcus, 11/18 — STYLE RADAR tracks fashion as it happens
In this email, Neiman Marcus promotes their new Style Radar, which presents products that fit into various style categories. It’s hard not to see echoes of Spiegel’s style segmentation efforts (see Mar. 17, 2008 AM Inbox) in this, but I think Neiman Marcus has given it a fresh enough twist to make it their own, with their style and city categories. The big question now is whether these styles will stay isolated on the microsite or whether they’ll be integrated in subscribers’ profiles and used for segmentation and serving up dynamic content.
Bluefly, 11/18 — Haute for the Holidays...Glam NEW Looks Starting at 30% Off
This is my favorite holiday header so far. Normally, the animation has the fly doing a simple little loop over to the forward-to-a-friend link. Throwing in the little aerial snowflake is simple, eye-catching, seasonal, and secular. Delightful!
And here’s the animated portion of the header:
