Email Marketing: How To Radically Cut Through the Noise 🔪 The new secret weapon for emails that truly stands out

TL;DR

Let’s face it, every additional word I write here risks losing your attention.
Big blocks of text make people tune out before they’ve even given your content a chance.

And yet, so many companies continue to send long text-heavy emails that are not getting read.


Cutting Through 🔪

Personalization stands out.

Effective personalization communicates: “This isn’t someone’s message, it’s your message.”

personalized content

Types of personalization include names, messaging, offers, data points, and even the style of animation. All aspects of personalization are uniquely data-driven to maximize impact for each and every viewer.

 

Motion catches our attention.

The “occipital lobe” (the part of the brain that is involved with vision) is wired to give its attention to things that are moving. This is because moving things are more likely to imminently attack us than non-moving things. So, “Thank you occipital lobe for keeping us safe.”

The Best of Both Worlds

Personalized GIFs give you the best of both worlds:

Animation grabs the viewer’s attention.

Personalization lets them know, “This is mine.”

Personalized GIFs go directly into an email creating an instant “Wow” experience that stands out and demands attention.

The Secret to a Customer-Centric Digital CX

A version of this article appeared on CMSWire. You can read it here. Looking for the secret to a better, more customer-focused digital CX? You’re not alone. Brands are increasingly embracing digital customer experiences across the customer journey.

Dynamic Videos and Mortgages: Why They Work Well Together

Personalized Video and mortgages — how (and why) do they fit together so well? It might not seem like an obvious connection, but let me explain. For the last 10 years before joining as a director of sales and account manager, I’ve been a marketing strategist in the mortgage industry. First, I was at Quicken Loans (now Rocket Mortgage), then at JP Morgan & Chase. And in those positions, I used Idomoo Personalized Video across the entire customer journey to educate and inspire customers to take action. I loved the technology so much, I joined the company. I got to share a little about this and how our platform works at this year’s Digital Mortgage conference by National Mortgage News. You can see my presentation — and take a look under the hood of our Next Generation Video Platform — in the clip below. But if you’d rather read, here’s
