500 Emails Later -- Top Takeaways from 5 years of Email Iteration
Wednesday June 5, 2024
Over the past five years, Clemson University’s creative team has developed and delivered more than 500 emails in collaboration with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. We began with a formulaic approach, sending batches of emails in a standard campaign through Mailchimp. Now, we use an agile creative approach and employ a mix of date-specific and action-initiated campaigns with emails designed in Beefree and sent through Slate. Our five takeaways from this process hit on cross-team collaboration, creative production, content strategy, our email tech stack and storytelling. The best thing is, they can be applied across industries.
