5 Actionable Tips to Create Customizable Emails and Landing Pages

Now that we’ve established that creating personalized emails and landing pages with Unlayer is super convenient, let’s discuss some tips to improve the process. 

1. Set a unique goal

Before you start designing, sit back and think, why are you creating the email or landing page? 

For instance, the goal of your email or landing page could be to inform your customers that your brand has introduced an exclusive clothing line for Christmas. In such a case, make sure the design, copy, and CTA make the message clear at first glance. 

2. Insert design elements that sync with the message 

Once you have decided on the goal of your email or landing page, pick and choose a design that communicates it, without anything lost in translation. 

Let’s consider the above-mentioned example again. So, if you plan to promote an exclusive clothing line for Christmas, you can add design elements like a Christmas tree, a Merry snowman, etc.

3. Add well-defined CTAs

Remember, everything on your email and landing page should be straightforward and obvious. Most importantly, the Call To Action

For instance, if you’re offering a promotional discount, mention it. And if you want your visitors/customers to book a demo call, write that clearly on the button too. 

4. Write enticing copy 

The copy of your email and landing page should click the visitor in the first look. For instance, if your user is searching for an analytics tool, the email or landing page must clearly mention how this certain tool can solve their problem and accelerate their business. 

5. Choose colors wisely

In a study conducted to understand consumer behavior, 85% of users said that color alone was the primary reason for purchasing a product. 

Yes, that’s how significant color is. 

Additionally, colors also influence brand recognition and can help a great deal in enticing your audience. 

Here’s how; imagine you’re a clothing brand that wants to send an abandoned cart email, and your brand color is orange. The moment your user receives your email, s/he will instantly recognize your brand among other emails and take a decision accordingly.

We all know how impatient readers are these days, and tricks like this help users make decisions quicker.
