Email marketing: The Weekly Inbox volume 39

Steve Olenski
Master Principal Sales Architect

The Weekly Inbox is a collection of email marketing messages from across the retail, travel/hospitality and financial services industries that caught my eye for being clever, forward thinking, creative or just plain awesome.

Welcome back to the next installment of The Weekly Inbox.

Here’s some emails that caught my eye this past week.

Rolling out the red carpet

The subject line in the email below from Grainger was enough to pull me in: "Your Big Red Box is Here." Admit it, you're intrigued too as to what's in the box. Very nicely done.

All dogs go to... Lenovo?

Ok I bit, no pun intended, when I saw the subject line "Warning: there are puppies in here" with this email below from Lenovo. Who can resist puppies, or kittens for that matter, right? Great email that played off the word "dogs" very nicely in more ways than one.

The likes of you

At first I didn't know what to make from the subject line "Like like like" via the email below from Warby Parker. And below is only small snippet of the entire email in two separate images. It is a fantastic use of social media to engage their audience. Well done.

Red, white and you

Love this email from Nordstrom. Bold headline with great accompanying image. No overkill here. Just the right text with the right image. Perfect.

Right off the bat the subject line with the email below from Williams-Sonoma hit home: "Al Fresco Pizza in 5 Minutes." Then when I opened the email and saw this, let's just say I was quite hungry and was ready to buy one immediately.
