1. Attention 2. Convey Message 3. Call to Action

The initial impact of the piece needs to retain the attention of the recipient, get them to read the details of the promotion and take an action. Combining the limited e-card real estate and these objectives the e-card can be divided into three zones:

E-CRM: Email Marketing – CAN SPAM
CAN SPAM Requirements • Specific requirements that marketers must adhere to when sending email campaigns are as follows:
– The message must include an opt-out mechanism – The message must include a valid subject line (not misleading) – The legitimate physical address of the mailer must exist in the email, whether it is in the e-card or below it

•

Ensures CAN SPAM compliance through the automated inclusion of disclaimers under the e-cards in addition to an opt-out link – look for a tool that does this programatically.

E-CRM: Email Marketing –SPAM
Subject Line • • • • Subject line can hold up to 60 characters or less (including spacing) and should be in title case. Best to use less rather than more, and 45 characters at most, is optimal. The subject line also needs to give the recipient a reason to open the email, but be void of spam trigger words such as: Words to avoid: Call Now, Special Promotion, Offer Expires, Free Membership, Free Money, Free Offer, Save $, The Best Rates, Vacation Offers, Weekend Getaway, You Have Been Selected, Congratulations, Amazing, For Free, Great Offer. The subject also should not include exclamation marks as there is a risk that the message will get trapped in a spam filter.
