Thanks to the best examples of major American publishers – from the New York Times to the Daily Beast – the Publisher’s Guide to Email Advertising will show you tips, tricks & best practices to use advertising in your email communications.
With the decline of printed media, the web is now the main arena for advertising revenue. Email is one of channels of digital advertising with very high potential, as long you dedicate maximum attention to the amounts of advertising in its different parts, creating a balance that correctly emphasizes the advertising and is at the same time harmonious with the email’s content.
To analyze email advertising, we focused on an industry that increasingly uses email as a special channel for communicating with stakeholders: publishing. In particular, we focused on American publishing, as it is most careful and sensitive to the relationship with its digital readers. This focus gave rise to the Publisher’s Guide to Email Advertising, a new ebook that offers you practical tools and suggestions for optimizing the insertion of advertising in your campaigns and converting email advertising into a strategic asset.
For many companies this is already a reality: representing the natural evolution of the relationship between media, advertising and digital marketing, for some publishers email advertising is a source of revenue that can exceed 20% of total revenue.
From Banners to Sponsored Content
After analyzing the types and formats of advertising – banners, native advertising, sponsored content – the ebook explores some of the most important campaigns of American publications, divided according to segment: from the general New York Times, Time Magazine and Daily Beast, to the protagonists of tech publishing (Techcrunch and CNET), up to the emerging realities of newsletters-only, which use email as their main channel for establishing a personalized dialogue with each recipient, molded according to his or her interests.
Finally, the end of the ebook offers a compendium with the best practices for defining the design of the email that will contain your advertising.
If the history of banners is as long as that of the web, email is the media support that is capable of exploiting the one to one relationship with recipients in order to increase the degree of advertising relevance.
