The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:
Staples, 2/24 — Save big on top rated products
Earlier this month, my Email Insider column, Ditch the Corporate-Speak: Use Terms Your Subscribers Can Appreciate, talked about speaking to customers from their point of view and avoiding corporate- and IT-speak like the plague. Staples gives us a good example of taking this approach. In this email they tweak their “click to view online” language, changing the word “email” to “coupon.” It’s safe assumption that subscribers will care more if their coupon is displaying correctly rather than their email displaying correctly. Their whitelisting request was already appealing to consumers’ self-interest with its “Don’t miss the savings” language.
