What emails are the big brands sending to promote their holiday sales?
We put together a collection of holiday season email templates. We want to inspire you to create your online store’s best holiday email marketing campaign so far.
Awesome, well-designed emails are the way to stand out in this busy time of the year. Effective email marketing impacts your sales in more than one way:
So what caught our eye?
What we like about it: stylish, monochrome email design that’s screaming “Black Friday” even without the copy. Eye catching emails are long remembered beyond the holiday sale.
Highlight: fun, friendly and definitely memorable
Why it’s cool: short; stylish visual connected to the purpose – buying gifts for under the Christmas tree. It is a type of content marketing in the form of email newsletters – you can create as many as target groups you have.
Why copy it: addresses price sensitivity of gift shoppers so they feel more relaxed to click
Did you know that the ☃ snowman emoji works best in subject lines?
Note that most but not all email client render emojis so a few of your recipients might not see them.
What works well here: explaining the deal simply and honestly. Plus, this email campaign works for customer acquisition outside your email list – getting new customers for free.
Cart abandonment is a problem more than ever during the holiday season when you’re fighting for every customer. So change your abandoned cart fighting strategy:
Why: to get people shopping as early as possible so your crash doesn’t crash on Black Friday – this example is quite cool in its straightforwardness that creates urgency
Why it matters: sales are the goal, of course, but people either like the holidays (so they enjoy themed emails and decorations) or they don’t like all the hassle so a little cheer might lift their spirits
Why you need it: just in case, mistakes happen and websites crash – you have to be prepared for any scenario and turn the situation around
