Gmail's new ‘grid view’ format presents email marketers with an unprecedented opportunity to engage with recipients.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 02, 2014
Movable Ink today announced the release of new features within its agileEMAIL platform that will enable email marketers to maximize campaign performance in Gmail’s new Promotions tab “grid view.” Marketers will be able to auto-optimize and personalize featured images on every open of the Promotions tab with the visual grid view enabled, resulting in higher open rates and more conversion opportunities.
Key features include:
- Automated A/B testing. Test multiple versions of featured grid view images on the fly, and automatically set campaigns to display the best performing images to the majority of recipients.
- Image personalization. Include a recipient’s name, birthday, anniversary, or other personalized content into the featured image to make messages stand out from other promotional emails. (This information cannot be viewed in grid view images as plain system text – it must be embedded in the image itself).
- Contextually relevant content. Display featured images that are contextually relevant to a recipient’s time, location, device, or local weather conditions.
- Countdown clocks. Display time remaining to take advantage of special sales.
“Gmail continues to innovate and create a compelling email experience for its users,” said Vivek Sharma, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Movable Ink. “Its elegant new ‘grid view’ format presents email marketers with an unprecedented opportunity to engage with recipients, and the new features we are announcing today will give them the ability to move the needle on boosting open rates in a way that was never before possible.”
