Create email campaigns considering mobile devices
No matter the destination, we will always have a smartphone in hand. This gives users the freedom to check their email from anywhere and at any time. So when you’re planning the summer email marketing campaign, the first thing you should keep in mind is the responsive design of your newsletter.

Bet on cool designs
Adapt your design to the season using fresh colors and simple designs. You can choose amongst the various free templates we have in our gallery. If you are going to promote offers for your products for the summer season, take advantage of the occasion and show them in creative and different ways. Play with colors, shapes and designs.. It's time to dare to look different.
Make your contacts feel special
Even if your recipient has shown less activity, do not miss the opportunity to send a message that makes them feel unique. Make sure you personalize each message, both in the subject line and in its content. Remember how important it is to make the reader feel that you know their tastes and needs. Take a little time to study your client's behavior through statistics and know which products have attracted the most attention or compare it with campaigns from previous years and compare the effectiveness of the messages.
Season of offers and promotions
Get out of your comfort zone, launch a unique and fun offer or promotion. It's the perfect season for those long-awaited sales. We all love getting deals, so take advantage of this to create a strategy that includes content that catches the attention of your target audience. Bet on flashy and attractive designs, but without over saturating the customer. Be direct and clear in what you seek to transmit.
Short and direct messages
During the holiday season, what we are most interested in is enjoying free time. Be sure to send messages that contain relevant and direct content. If your client decides to check their inbox in the middle of their vacation, rest assured that it will not be to read paragraphs and paragraphs of text. They’re sure instead, to quickly scan through your emails and this is where they will choose among those that contain the most precise and direct messages. The best thing to do is tell them what you need in a short, easily readable message. Keep a proportional balance between images and text.
It is worth reducing the frequency of sending
Do not waste sending campaigns every week, it is possible that your readers are less locked to their emails during the summer, so it is valid to reduce the frequency of sending. This is beneficial as it will allow you to plan the most appropriate content and design for your client.
Apply persuasion techniques
Put into practice writing persuasive texts to include in your message; be it a short story in Storytelling format or paragraphs using copywriting techniques. Remember that you have to put a lot of thought behind the message that will go in your subject line, as you’re looking to send an attractive message to the client that makes him stop and open it. Do not forget to use dynamic fields to customize the subject and be much more direct with your message.
