Listrak, an innovator of eCommerce marketing solutions, recently released an Email Campaign Look Book designed to give online retailers actionable ideas to include in their holiday email marketing strategy planning.
The look book reports that in 2012 the volume of promotional holiday emails increased 19% over 2011 and that last year online retailers sent an average of 5.3 emails in the five days between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday. It also notes that the highest volume email days in 2012 were Cyber Monday, Free Shipping Day, Green Monday and Thanksgiving, during which between 83 and 93% of all online retailers sent at least one message on each day.
Listrak’s Holiday Email Campaign Look Book is conveniently organized into 12 tips and best practices for merchants to consider to make their emails stand out in crowded inboxes and to engage online shoppers. The tips are accompanied by 15 examples of successful emails received in 2012 and 2013. Together, the tips and examples give online retailers an easy-to-use guide covering the important topics of when to start sending holiday emails, how to re-engage last year’s holiday shoppers, how to increase list size and engage new subscribers and how to keep shoppers buying throughout the entire holiday season.
Listrak CEO Ross Kramer comments, “Holiday email volume is on the rise, so it is especially important for online retailers to have a strategic plan in place to capture shoppers’ attention, engage them and get them to buy throughout the holiday season. The look book gives great ideas that combine creativity and time-tested tactics that can be applied to nearly any eCommerce merchant’s holiday email campaign strategy. It’s not necessary to re-invent the wheel, but it is important to be prepared to pull out all the stops, so to speak, in order to leverage the power of email to maximize holiday revenue."
