Here are six tips to make sure your emails are mobile-friendly and will generate action!
1. Keep your email short. Try and keep it to a picture, a paragraph and a call to action.
2. Avoid multiple columns – they may look strange and make the email too hard to read
3. Make sure your photos are sized correctly for a mobile device
4. Mobile screens are small- make sure the font is large enough for someone to comfortably read. Try a 14pt font.
5. Feature your call to action – the reason you sent your email in the first place was to drive action. Put that link where it’s easy to click!
6. Use a professional email marketing system like Constant Contact. They have templates that are designed to be mobile-friendly.
To make sure your email is mobile friendly, just send yourself a copy. If it looks good on your phone, chances are you’re good to go.

So you’d like to stay active on social media this holiday season, but you also want to ski, spend time with the kids or binge-watch the new season of Orange is the New Black.
No matter what you want you like to do on your holidays, it probably doesn’t include sitting in front of your computer and posting on Facebook.
Here’s a solution that allows you to relax and enjoy your holiday and still post on social media. Repurpose the 10 most popular things you posted this year. There’s even a hashtag for it – #mostpopular .
Go through your Facebook analytics, pull a report from Hootsuite, or simply scan your posts to see what got the most attention. Then, spend a few minutes scheduling these to go out over the holidays. Social media posts have such a short shelf life that it’s unlikely someone will see a post twice. To grab attention, add a colourful Happy Holidays or Happy New Year photograph.
If you’d like some help keeping your Facebook postings active while you enjoy some downtime, please be in touch.
Depending on your industry, things may be winding down for the year or you might be heading into your busiest season.
Regardless of what’s happening, pay attention to your marketing this time of year! If you’re sending out an email, especially a newsletter, be sure to send it before December 15th. After the 15th you’ll find that fewer people will open it.
Whether it’s paper or email, a holiday card is a good idea. Send it closer to the holidays so your list keeps you top of mind in a friendly way.
If you’d like the attention-getting advantage of a customized holiday email card, let me know. I’m ready to put one together for you!
