Insufficient resourcing and staffing on email teams is a major, persistent problem in marketing departments. The failure to address what is clearly a common problem may be because of several misconceptions and blocking issues. Let’s address some frequent ones…
Being blacklisted is an email marketer’s nightmare, but for many marketers it’s a threat that’s somewhat theoretical. Being caught on a blacklist is something that only happens to spammers and brands that don’t follow email best practices, right?
Turns out that this isn’t quite true.
Designing and coding emails often involves manual, arduous editing processes that are not only mundane and tiresome, but can easily lead to mistakes. It doesn’t have to be that way—here are seven ways you can add automation into your email workflow.
Say hello to the newest addition to the Litmus Email Creative Platform: Introducing Litmus Proof.
With Litmus Proof as your centralized tool for collecting feedback, you can improve collaboration, get better visibility, and enjoy fewer review cycles—and ultimately get your emails out the door, faster.
Building amazing email campaigns is challenging. From design and development to testing across email clients, there’s a lot to worry about. 49% of brands spend two weeks or more producing an email campaign, with most of that time going towards the development, review, and approval process, according to our 2018 State of Email Workflows report.
That’s why we’re excited to introduce new features to Litmus Builder. Watch the webinar recording to see how Builder helps you build better emails, faster.
Email marketing is a team sport. Based on Litmus’ 2018 State of Email Survey of nearly 3,000 marketing professionals worldwide, this presentation looks at the three email team components—internal team member, external team members, and business stakeholders. It also examines how email team sizes may change during 2018. See how your own email marketing team compares.
Email is such a personal channel, which makes it the ideal medium to build excitement for events. To ensure that guests actually show up, it can be useful to include an “add to your calendar” link to the emails promoting your event. However, these links can be hard to implement or require a third-party solution to ensure the correct calendar links are generated for the subscriber. Learn about the “add to calendar” button technique we use for our Litmus Live emails as we walk you through the steps you need to create one of these types of links for your emails.
Every year at Litmus Live, we identify the biggest challenges facing the industry and invite the brilliant email marketers that are facing those challenges to share their hard-won insights with attendees. Topics run the gamut from workflows and email creation to strategy, automation, communication, and more.
Here’s a sneak peak at what we’re planning for Litmus Live 2018.
At Litmus, we care deeply about our customers and the email community, and we’re working hard to make the email world a little better every day. But we also believe that our involvement shouldn’t stop at the end of the work day or be limited to the email community. We’re proud that many of our team members are engaged in their communities beyond Litmus, and as a brand, we believe that it’s our responsibility to do the same. That’s why Litmus offers Volunteer Time Off (VTO)—paid time away from work that employees can use to volunteer at an organization of their choice. Plus, volunteering has become part of our bi-annual team get-togethers.
Today, we’re thrilled to announce a new partnership with Movable Ink, the global leader in contextual email technology. Their users now have the ability to test their emails directly within the Movable Ink platform, equipping even more email marketers and designers with the resources to start building better email.
