Email marketing: getting the content right.

Halloween photoHappy Friday!  Today, I’ve got some tips and resources for  email marketing for technology solutions.

First the tips:

  • Keep the subject lines short – You’ve got 35 to 50 characters at most before you’re cut off.
  • Keep the message short. You should be able to say almost anything in 100 words or less.
  • Keep the language clear – reduce the jargon and speak plainly. Your email could be forwarded…
  • Talk about your reader’s issues, not your solution. How can you help make their life easier, save money, improve revenue, improve efficiency, reduce workload…
  • Remove the sidebar. They’re not made for mobile devices.

Now the resources:
