• Industry says anywhere from 27-41% of emails opened on mobile
(multiple sources, 2012-13)
• >30% of organizations do NOT have email optimized for mobile
•
Nearly 40% of organizations only offer “basic” features for email
optimization on mobile
• Trends:

second chance
It’s not just about creating an email which is easy to read on a mobile, you need to
make it easy for recipients to act upon the email.

Customer Relationship & CRM
• Customer relationships = Trust
– ≠ data
• “Relationships are reciprocal”
• Challenge:
– CRM can turn people into data and relationships into ROE
– Relationships (C “R” M) are between people
• “Thought marketing”
– Put the customer 1st
– What value will you bring customer
– Use the data for good

E-campaign planning checklist
1. Establish campaign goals [milestones, ROI]
-Story to tell? What makes us unique?
2. Who are your internal resources (skills, time
commitment- your team, LE, IU Comm)?
3. Identify tools to use [social media, wcms, email, crm
with WOM, print, event]
4. What customer data do you have? Past campaign
results/data? What data do you want to start
collecting? [CRM, analytics]
5. Brainstorm CTA’s
Only then….design & deliver


Work with editors/copywriters, CTAs
Monitor click-thrus….what content gets most engagement?
Linked landing pages for more content
Consider A/B testing
Subject lines: less than 35 characters
 Subscriptions: offer opt-in and opt-out
 Most IU tools/policy will not support “purchased lists”
 CAN SPAM compliance
 Social media links: make retweets/re-posts easier

 Understand who, when & how your emails are being opened or read
 Design options
 Higher contrast: phones, tablets-energy saving dims; screen-glare
 IU branding: brand, “What matters. Where it matters.”
 Design links with touch-screen in mind -min 44px CTA/button and spaced
out
 Mobile 180 or 320 pixels wide; Tablets 500 pixels wide
 Performance & context
 3G & 4G…but keep images small
 “go anywhere”, “read anywhere” (bus, bed, airport, email scanning)
 If email is scanned/opened on mobile, it does NOT get reopened on
desktop
