>>Oopsy Hall of Fame: Check out the 2009 inductees.
The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:
Montgomery Ward, 2/3 — NEW Wards' Membership Program: Save 20% Off Everything!
Montgomery Ward has redesign their email template, going with a more limited color pallet and more neutrals, particularly in the footer. They’ve also consolidated their two-tiered navigation bar into a single one. Like the previous nav bar, this one is made of HTML text so that it renders when images are blocked. They have also introduced new bullet treatments that may signal a new button design as well. Since this email doesn’t highlight products, it’s unclear how their product grid will change.
Newegg, 2/2 — Sweet Deals for Valentine's + Weekly EggXclusives: $379.99 lenovo 3GB RAM Laptop...
Newegg has launched a mobile-friendly version of their emails, adding a button under the navigation bar and promoting it in a banner toward the bottom of the email. The placement of the button is a little curious, since most marketers put their “view mobile version” link in the preheader.
