March Email Ideas: Content & Design
Now when you 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 I’ve recently found in my inbox:
- Spring is near, new bottoms are here;
- 4 ways to spring-ify your closet;
- Wear spring (& sunshine) on your shoulders;
- ⏩spring forward... TOMORROW! ⏩
- Bright looks for SPRING!
- Spring on it! 25% off everything;
- Make it an early Spring at the table;
- Spring is Coming;
- Styles to Help You Transition to Spring;
- New spring-ready cashmere is here!
- SPRING FLING ?
- Go With The Flow(y) Dresses;
- New Shades Are Blooming;
- winter outside. spring in here! ??
- First look: new spring clothing and gear.
For extra help, check some of these subject line generators. If you enter the original keyword, the results may surprise you.
2. Find the proper template.
If you're new to email marketing or simply want to upgrade your email design (and do it fast), choose ready HTML templates. In eSputnik, we have 450+ free templates you can start editing after registration. You only need to select the one that fits your March newsletter ideas and fill it with the right content.
If you need more options, see the article on where to get email templates for your marketing campaigns.
3. 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.
4. Promote related products.
If you have some spring-related patterns or thematic products, March emails are a perfect way to put them on display.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. 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.
8. Use gamification.
We all need a bit of distraction in these hard times. And what can do better than a game? Adding some elements of gamification to your March email marketing can help engage readers and prompt them to make the desired action.
9. Send personalized product recommendations.
People want brands to know the history of their interaction and send the corresponding content. One of the ways to personalize your emails is to send user-oriented product recommendations that are formed based on their shopping history like site visits, orders, preferred brands, average check, etc.
In eSputnik, for example, you can set up to show recommended items based on different algorithms:
- Most viewed;
- Similar products;
- Personal recommendations;
- New arrivals;
- Price drop, etc.
For more details, read our complete guide on how to set up product recommendations for email.
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.
