This email from Original Penguin has a nice implementation of ‘two click’ Facebook Like functionality. Clicking on the ‘like’ button in the email drives to a landing page with a similar design, which includes a working like button. Users can then use that to like the deal, posting a link to the landing page on their Facebook profile.
One thing that often gets overlooked when discussing mobile use of email marketing campaigns is where recipients end up after they’ve clicked. Whilst this email isn’t particularly optimized for viewing on a mobile (aside from a link to a text based ‘mobile version’ at the top), Sephora has done well to optimize their site and landing pages for use on smartphones.
It’ll be interesting to see how this mobile support may relate to their email campaigns from now on.
Not much to say here other than that this looks great, is a great example of best practice and is completely on brand – happy 10th anniversary threadless!
This has done the rounds over the last couple days, but it contains a clever trick to boost open rates. Take a look at the hero image area – it mimics a scrolling box you’d typically find on the website, complete with a “see more” arrow. Of course, this kind of thing only works if the landing page is engaging and contains the content you’re suggesting the recipient can scroll to – in this case it does.
