  • 3 Reasons to Send Plain Text Email

    Visually appealing emails certainly have their place, but some situations call for simplicity. Here are a few reasons why sending a plain text email may work to your advantage.

    Improve deliverability - Generally, plain text emails carry less risk when it comes to being flagged as spam through email filters. That’s because they are less likely to have formatting and coding mistakes. They are also smaller in size and easier to deliver without all of the extra images, which can be disabled by recipients.

    Plain text email feels authentic - Authenticity is the big theme in marketing this year, and that’s because people are inundated with content through email, text, social, and all the platforms. You can make a plain text email feel more authentic and less “salesy”, which can be the perfect choice when you want to give a more personal and friendly approach.

    The main message is easier to digest - When you have an important or timely message, especially when you want to build trust and loyalty in the later stages of customer engagement, a plain text email is a wonderful way to send a simple and engaging message that is easy to digest. Don’t forget your clear call to action, and you’ll see the best results.

  • 10 Situations to Send a Plain Text Email

    While everyone loves a good email design, there are some situations in which it may be best to use our plain text email templates.

    1. Sending legal documents
    2. Important confirmations
    3. In drip campaigns to provide an authentic, personal feel
    4. To ensure accessibility for everyone
    5. When you want to ensure your email loads quickly with lower spam risk
    6. Your message is short and sweet
    7. Building rapport with your readers
    8. When you need to deliver a message - fast!
    9. When you want to cut through the clutter - plain text emails stand out
    10. Increase engagement rates

    You may be surprised at that last one, but believe it or not, plain text can beat a designed marketing email by 20%. Depending on your marketing goals, plain text can work well for consultants or those who want to develop rapport but perhaps not so good for showcasing your latest fashion release or menu item.

    However, offering a fun coupon or other special with plain text could be a cool way to get more attention. Happy marketing!
