16 creative email newsletter designs

With companies such as Groupon and Thrillist becoming multi million businesses, many companies are mimicking their approach to email marketing. However, email marketing is often done poorly, even marketing consultants are aware of this- when asked by eConsultancy to rate the  performance of their companies’ email, almost two thirds (61%) of respondents rate their own email as poor or average. According to Webeden email marketing allows the retailer to begin building long-term relationships with consumers and maximising revenue from their existing base” which is why it’s important to give the right impressions when sending out email newsletters. I tend to be conservative when it comes to disclosing my email but if it is to receive beautiful designs like those featured below, then please spam me as much as you can!

If you are inspired to start a email marketing campaign, you will need to buy your own domain name and buy a couple of email addresses to send your emails from. It is better to send emails newsletters from your own domain rather than using a gmail or hotmail address because let’s face it, who trusts business emails from a @hotmail.com address? Once your email hosting is sorted, you can start designing beautiful emails like these guys have done.

    Very nice and creative e-maildesigns, but they are all very image-heavy.

    I wonder how many of them actually make it to the inbox. I can imagine that without proper slicing knowledge, spam filter will be the big winners here.
