Why it works:

This Labor Day email is balanced and organized. The animation is eye-catching, content centered and straight to the point. This email has all the right elements to get readers to click.

Why it works:

Labor Day and BBQ’s will never go out of style, and neither will this email. Bold headline, simple copy, the play on words, and fun illustration are just a few things I love about this email.


Why it works:

This Labor Day email has a powerful headline and a simple call-to-action (“shop sale”). The only thing to do is click.


Why it works:

Animated emails are always eye-catching and, in my experience, always perform better.

Why it works:

This email first caught my eye because of its colorful, vibrant imagery. But I also like the simplicity of the content. It’s not overly-promotional, which can be a trend around the holidays as people rush to tell you about their sales. A nice break from the norm.


Why it works:

I like this email because it plays off the old ‘no white after Labor Day’ myth. It’s another example that proves you don’t have to be flashy or overly promotional. It’s just a simple, well-designed email.


Why it works:

The email brilliantly uses timing and urgency to their advantage by grabbing their readers attention with the headline “Need a last minute ride?”. They then follow that up with copy that drives the need to reserve your car now.


Why it works:

What I really like about this email is the bar they added above the creative calling out that the sale ends at midnight. This is another great example of an email designed to drive urgency.
