AM Inbox: Product reviews vs. product line reviews

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

L.L. Bean, 8/10 — 20% Off Women's Pants + 20% Off All Backpacks‏
Asking for product reviews is a best practice and proven sales booster. But what if you want feedback and testimonials about a product line or collection, not a single product? In this email, L.L. Bean has taken the approach of asking for that product line review to take place on Facebook. L.L. Bean is a master of leveraging product review testimonials back into their email messaging, so it will be interesting to see how they do that with these Facebook conversations.
