Content & Design Ideas for March Email Campaigns
Now when we know when to write, let’s see what to write and how to set the spring mood for your email campaigns.
1. Spruce up a subject line.
The conversation with a subscriber starts with a subject line regardless of the email type and purpose. Planning new arrivals or menu updates to resonate with the beginning of a new season? Announce it straight from the start.
For a bit of inspiration, look at some of the spring email subject lines we’ve recently found in our Inbox:
- Spring is near, new bottoms are here. (UNIQLO);
- Wear spring (& sunshine) on your shoulders. (Anthropologie);
- Bright looks for SPRING! 🌷 (Pink Lily);
- Spring on it! 25% off everything (American Eagle);
- 🌼 Your Perfect Spring Dress 🌼 (Forever 21);
- Spring is Coming (Lacoste);
- New spring-ready cashmere is here! (J.Crew);
- Go With The Flow(y) Dresses (Dynamite);
- New Socks: For Spring, and For 🌧️Days (Bombas);
- New Shades Are Blooming (Allbirds);
- First look: new spring clothing and gear (Patagonia).
2. Add spring-associated elements.
You don’t necessarily have to create a totally new design, just adding a couple of small spring-associated elements – blossoming trees and flowers, birds, bees and butterflies, etc. – will be enough to add the necessary vibes.
3. Promote related products.
If you have some spring-related patterns or thematic products, March emails are a perfect way to put them on display.
4. Focus on color.
In many regions (especially temperate zones), winter is associated with cold and snow, and the arrival of spring often signifies the end of long sunless days and freezing temperatures. Celebrate it with bright and sparkling colors.
5. Remind to care for nature.
For many of us, springtime means rebirth of nature when it wakes up after the winter slumber. Why not remind your subscribers that even a little effort can contribute to environment conservation.
6. Add dynamic vibes with AMP.
Planning to include as many bright images but don’t want to send long newsletters? Consider empowering your emails with an AMP carousel – showcase the full range of products even in a space-limited campaign.
Use some of the above March activity ideas to surprise your subscribers on first days of spring. Choose the one that resonates best with your brand and service and invite people to step in the new season with your company in mind.
