Welcome to 2024! We have made it another lap around the sun, and during this time, we have learned, grown and become better versions of ourselves. This period of the year can be a bit strange for marketing, especially as many customers are still on holiday exploring the world, and some are all shopped out from Christmas.
To make a wow during this period, it’s important to turn your focus back to brand awareness and remind customers why they should choose your business over others. Doing this with key events in mind is a great way to make an impact that is sure to help boost sales.

Evergreen Idea: The cliffhanger
Giving away too many of your secrets during the subject line and preview text of an email may mean your customers automatically assume it’s not for them. Try to be more evasive about what you’re talking about to generate better open and click-through rates.
For example, something like “Wishing you a happy Monday,” could be changed to “A special message inside.” While they both have a similar meaning for the reader, the latter leaves more to the imagination and can perk their interest enough to read your emails.
Remember! It doesn’t matter how well-written or well-designed your emails are if people aren’t opening them…
