2) Old Guys Rule

  • A pre-header has been provided.
  • A bold headline announces the sale.
  • Neatly stacked sections with witty titles and individual CTA buttons. But an interactive element like a Slider or Menu would have helped to reduce the overall length of the email.


3) Gig Masters

• Simple yet quite effective.

• To create the sense of clock ticking, GigMasters made it quite clear that it is the last day of sale and it is the only big sale of the year.

• Along with the Columbus Day theme, even the timing of the Email was taken care of. Subscribers received the email on October 9 to remind them about Columbus Day and a last promotional email template was sent on 14th October, giving the subscribers last chance to shop.
