"Conversational Email Copywriting" with Stephanie Casstevens (Content Lab, Ep. 11)

By: Liz Murphy on October 3rd, 2018

Blog Feature

When people think about creating content, typically it's blog articles, case studies, and pillars that come to mind. In reality, content can take many forms -- for example, writing an email newsletter for your company is writing a piece of content. What’s funny -- or pitiful, depending on how you think about it -- is that, when given the choice, I’ll choose to write a 3,000-word article over a short, pithy email newsletter any day of the week. There’s something about writing email copy that freaks me out, you know? (Maybe it’s just my natural tendency to answer yes or no questions with 10-paragraph essays, which I know is what one might call a "personal problem.") Regardless, I’ve invited Stephanie Casstevens, our Director of Audience Engagement and Community, to talk about a new type of email copywriting -- conversational email copywriting --  that has become quite popular.

By: Ramona Sukhraj on July 2nd, 2018

Blog Feature

I’m going to be honest. For the past week, I’ve been racking my brain trying to think of a fun, original 4th of July article for this year's festivities -- but I've drawn a blank. Festivals and holidays are marketing gold, but as effective at driving sales and “delighting” customers as they are, thinking of a campaign that is both unique and memorable isn’t easy.

Email Personalization: How to Be Relevant No Matter Where People Travel This Summer

By: Ramona Sukhraj on August 8th, 2017

Blog Feature

Once a year, go someplace you have never been before. You can imagine my disappointment to learn this wasn't actually said by the Dalai Lama like so many Instagram and Pinterest boards claim -- but hey, that doesn’t make any less true in my book. A vacation to me is not a success unless I go somewhere or see something that I have never seen before, and I know I’m not the only one. Simply glance at your Facebook timeline and I’m sure you’ll see dozens of people jet-setting to exotic locations this summer, looking for adventure. While that’s wonderful for them, from a marketer’s perspective, it throws quite a wrench in our campaign calendars. With everyone on-the-go, when is the right time to send out that next big email marketing campaign? When can you unleash your secret weapon without it getting missed? How can you still be relevant?
