We all know how essential mobile-friendly websites are to your bottom line. It’s time to take that concept a step further, and bring the same great design elements to your mobile email. It is no longer enough to send your customers plain text emails, even if those emails are helpful and informative.
We just came across a great example of mobile optimization over on Litmus.com, which demonstrated the big differences between text-only email versus a well-designed mobile email platform.
Thanks to gorgeous smartphone screens, your mobile emails can still take advantage of tantalizing, inviting photos. The article illustrates the perfect contrast between an all-text email platform and a responsively designed, far more dynamic email platform. The difference is glaringly apparent and serves to illustrate why optimizing your email platform should be on your short list.
