Making Email Marketing Productivity a Priority

Making software that’s easy to use, full of features, and delivers on its promise is what we all expect from software companies.

But what about Productivity?

Can software really help a user do their job better, faster, with less keystrokes, and with more efficiency?

Yes.

I’ve used software programs that are very well-designed, that help me work better, faster, and especially smarter. I like that. Examples that come to mind include Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Excel. Like them or not, they do a good job of helping the user write and edit documents, and manage complex spreadsheets of information. They do an awful lot more too!

And now we have that same productivity in Email Marketing.

The Biggest Benefit of Email Testing

In our last post, we explained why it’s important to test your emails before they go out. There are many benefits to incorporating this practice into your email marketing program, from catching typos and grammatical errors to ensuring optimal image display and maximum delivery.

But the biggest benefit of all is a little more abstract.

Take Time To Test!

Picture this: you’ve created a phenomenal email. One of your best ever, in fact. It’s got highly compelling content that’s relevant to your subscribers, gorgeous images, and a call to action that’s practically irresistible. This email is so good, you can’t wait to put it out there and watch the clicks and conversions start rolling in. So you’re really tempted to just pull the trigger and skip the whole testing phase. After all, you know your email is practically perfect.

What could possibly go wrong?

Missing Image? Lancelot Link to the Rescue!

You want to include that beautiful photo you took, or that gorgeous artwork you created, in your latest mailing. Your image is so good, you can’t wait for everyone to see it. But there’s a problem: when your email goes out, all your subscribers see is a blank space where your image was supposed to be, along with this message:

Bad Link Image

So what happened??
