The New Normal: Responsive Designs
You may remember a time when the only way to view your email was on a desktop computer. That time has completely passed and consumers now expect the emails they receive to display seamlessly across multiple devices. That means that email marketers should design their campaigns to look flawless on desktop, tablet and smartphones. At Surf Your Name, responsiveness is one of our top priorities. Whether we’re building a website or developing an engaging email marketing campaign, we check the display across every screen size, in every orientation so your message can reach your entire audience – no matter the device.
Smartphones have changed everything about the way that companies interact with their consumers. It’s now easier than ever to browse the web and buy your favorite products using the tiny computer in your pocket. Recent studies show that 75% of consumers prefer to check their email on their phone, rather than on desktop computers. Based on recent studies, email interactivity and mobile readiness go hand in hand. That means your company’s email marketing campaigns should be designed to display properly on mobile devices FIRST in order to produce the best results. Our email marketing team at Surf Your Name knows what it takes to design campaigns with mobile viewers in mind, and our number one goal is to engage your subscribers – turning them into paying customers.
Branded Templates are The New Black
The email marketing world is moving away from simple text-driven email campaigns. Studies have shown that eye-catching, branded emails lend credibility to your business and build trust with your client base. Templates can be customized to better represent your business and headers and footers are an incredible opportunity to insert logos, as well as social media links and contact information. Not only does Surf Your Name have an incredible email marketing team, but we also have a team of graphic designers who are ready to create an engaging look and feel for your marketing emails.
