The Role of Email in Successful Omnichannel Marketing Programs

Lauren Kremer, Marketing Lead, Global Campaigns & Programs, ProQuest

More info

As email marketers, we recognize the power of email to meet customer needs, while driving revenue and brand goals. What we lack is the ability to stay top-of-mind for these same customers throughout their digital journey through social media, online events, paid search, and more. We’ve validated our industry, but phase two is here: omnichannel marketing as the status quo. While it may be intimidating at first, fitting email into omnichannel marketing programs is achievable for any organization, regardless of market.

Lauren Kremer
ProQuest
At ProQuest, Lauren Kremer helps researchers around the world connect with resources to enhance learning and insights. She uses her years of email and digital marketing experience to make customers true partners in the journey. When not designing, deploying, and analyzing emails, Lauren contributes to Women of Email and enjoys helping others empower their expertise in our industry. She also loves spending time with her family, re-watching The West Wing or Parks and Recreation, crafting, and keeping up-to-date on current events, with healthy doses of cupcakes thrown in for good measure.

Using Psychology to Create High-Performance Emails

Jonathan Pay, Consultant, Holistic Email

Chances are that you’re creating email without a full understanding of your audience’s behaviors and preferences. But real value is created when we fully understand who we’re emailing at a psychological level. By applying different principles from psychology and marketing to email—including personality types and cognitive biases—we can craft more compelling, high-performing campaigns that drive engagement with your audience.

Fixing Enterprise Email with Design Systems

Fabio Carneiro, Senior Product Designer, Booking.com

More info

As email programs become more complex, it’s becoming difficult for organizations to scale and manage their email campaigns while staying flexible, efficient, and on-brand. By creating a design system and a reusable pattern library of email templates, developers can ease the pain of email creation across dozens of email types and multiple teams—all while keeping emails consistent across even the biggest companies.

Keep Subscribers Engaged with Better UX

Ade-Lee Adebiyi, Lead UX/UI Designer, Papertrail.io

More info

Most email designers and developers work under tight deadlines, leaving design and user experience as an afterthought. Emails are built entirely with images, and little thought is put into designing considerate campaigns that keep subscribers engaged. However, by applying fundamental UX principles—like hierarchy, imagery, whitespace, and typography—early on in the design process (and translating them into your email’s HTML and CSS), we can create compelling email campaigns that finally put the subscriber experience first.

Ade-Lee Adebiyi

Ade-Lee is the Lead UX/UI Designer at Papertrail.io in Newcastle, UK. He believes in clean, consistent, and thoughtful design. Prior to Papertrail.io, Ade-Lee worked as a Web Designer at SaleCycle, delivering behavioural marketing solutions to brands including Tommy Hilfiger, Virgin Atlantic and Harvey Nichols.
