All In The Subject Line: Piss Off

We’ve looked at Swell emails before but here’s an example of how cheeky copywriting can really make your subject line punchy. I like the design and products in the Swell newsletters and look out for them anyway, so when the subject line is out of the ordinary (and probably borderline offensive)  it’s extra intriguing – Good work!

Email Inspiration: Swell Polo T-Shirt Solus

This solus email from US fasion retailer Swell caught our attention with it’s striking, simple design. The almost black and white nature of the email means a tiny red spot is all that’s required to draw attention to the free shipping offer, and where other retailers may be tempted to add stacks of copy, here a single, crisp product shot does all the talking.

The “Girls, Update your profile..” is a nice, cheeky way to get people to update their preferences, although it does seem hidden towards the bottom of the email.
