August is the ideal month for mid-season sales. Travel agencies, clothes retailers and even ice cream vendors are taking the opportunity to sell any stock they might still have. . One thing they are all probably using? Newsletters!
And while marketing agencies are taking a well deserved break, more and more brands are investing in newsletter templates for the summer campaigns.
During the beach season, people are more willing to spend money. As a result, they are receptive to offers and sales pitches from their favorite brands. If you haven’t read my previous post about newsletters, you should. It will help you to understand how to prepare and design your newsletter templates for summer. But here are a few key information:
The fundamentals of email newsletter design
The header of your newsletter should be clean, bold, and easily recognized. In the header, include your company’s logo as well as a strong image.
This is the meat of your email. Here you can include additional images, links, products you want to promote, a short text with a message you want to convey, and more. The design of your newsletter’s body will differ depending on the content you intend to use, which is why it’s critical to plan out your content before settling on a design or template.
In the footer of your newsletter include an unsubscribe link or a link to the subscriber’s preferences, links to your social media pages or website, and your company’s contact information, including location. You can also include things like a personalized handwritten signature or even a CTA in your signature. Like the header, should not be overly cluttered; the bulk of the email should have been in the body.
Make an email newsletter mockup
Create a mockup of what you want your design to look like. This mockup can be as detailed or as general as you like, but it’s a good way to ensure you don’t overlook anything in your final design. Consider a mockup to be a draft when creating one. This is the stage when you should consider who your newsletter is intended for as well as your overall goal. You can experiment with different content and image placement to see how it will look in the final version.
