Your social media game is strong. Your website is beautiful. But how are your brand’s emails looking? With today’s online consumer both social media and website are crucial, yes, but don’t overlook your email newsletters! Drive DTC sales by connecting with consumers, building loyalty and growing your community of evangelists.

Like all other touch points (social accounts, website, product packaging, shipping collateral, etc.), your email is an extension of your brand’s look and persona. Remember, your audience follows you because they WANT to. But you’ve got to give them an incentive; a reason to hit subscribe. Connect and engage with your subscribers through VIP exclusive discounts, company news, fun ways to use your products, educational content, special events, and more!

Below are some brands we subscribe to who are using these strategies in their email marketing.
