I have always been an advocate of simplicity.
If I want to promote something in an email campaign I would strive to make the offer and the call-to-action clear and simple. In marketing it is all well and good to be clever, but not if you’re the only person “clever” enough to get the message.
An email I received today demonstrated this point perfectly… well it at least proved too clever for me to “get it”.
The email came from a very nice hotel in Vienna. My wife and I spent a pleasant weekend there last year so on receipt of the email I thought I’d take a closer look.
The email was entitled “Celebrate your birth year in Vienna”. Intrigued I read on and learnt that were I to take up this offer I would pay Euro 259 per night for 2 nights and on the 3rd night pay “at rates equal to your birth year”. There was no further explanation.
I was born in 1974… did that mean I would pay Euro 1,974?!? That wouldn’t be a good deal.
Confused but still interested I clicked through to the website for clarification. There I found an example to help me understand:
"3rd nt equal to birthyear. E.g If born in 1955 and your companion in 1960 - 3rd nt is E115"
If you send email campaigns then you probably use a template. Not every email campaign…

Line height is not always consistent when viewing emails in Outlook. This is especially true…
