AM Inbox: Ralph Lauren highlights web 2.0 elements in Rubgy.com relaunch email

>>Two-Click Survey: Are you in compliance with the new CAN-SPAM rules that went into effect in July? See the results.

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

Ralph Lauren, 8/20 — Introducing Rugby.com - The Next Generation Of Ralph Lauren
Ralph Lauren has relaunched Rugby.com yet again, this time with lots of web 2.0 bells and whistles including video and a News Room blog. Unlike when they introduced the “new Rugby.com” last year (see Sept. 24 AM Inbox), this time they include a call-to-action for Ralph Lauren subscribers to become Rugby.com email subscribers. At the bottom of the email, there’s also a plug for Rugby.com’s Facebook Group. As they’ve done several times since June, Ralph Lauren includes a set of links to popular social networks to allow subscribers to share this email (see June 19 AM Inbox).

Starting with an Aug. 14 email, Spiegel has been running a deal-a-day campaign, which it plans to run for 30 days. Musician’s Friends highlights their “Stupid Deal of the Day” in each email and several other retailers have at times run deal-a-day campaigns, including Bluefly, Circuit City and DisneyShopping.
