Pre-script: Read till the end. There’s an important point to note mentioned at the end.

1. Nuroco

Subject line: Father’s Day Super Sale! 15% OFF on all products!

The hero image and headline of the email exude Father’s Day vibes and connect with the subscriber at once. The CTA incorporates the coupon code for the Father’s Day offer. The good part is that they have conveyed the offer in the subject line itself.  In the following sections, they have included the images of the products on sale. They have highlighted the price too in the CTA itself. Amidst all the product promotions, they have shared a profound message about cherishing our dads, which will further persuade the subscriber to click through the CTA. The only thing that could have been better is the choice of colors in the hero image. The sub-headline in white font is not quite readable, which makes the email a bit inaccessible for all subscribers.

13. Tuft and Needle

Subject line: This ones for the dads.

Don’t you ask people for their feedback before buying anything? Alternatively, you must be reading online reviews by existing customers. Right? The last-minute Father’s Day email by Tuft and Needle includes a pretty image of father and son, an engaging copy, and product images to generate sales. However, what makes the maximum impact is Laurel’s testimonial that talks about ease of delivery and comfort of their products. “Dads love us” is a good catch phrase to get people to buy.

14. Tastebuds

Subject line: What are you getting Dad for Fathers Day this year?

“Early bird” are the two magical words that can bring maximum conversions. More often than not, early bird discounts are most coveted by the disciplined category of people who like everything planned in advance. This email by Tastebuds uses the perfect combination of words and visuals to cajole people into buying Father’s Day gifts. At the end of the email, they have used an animation to bring attention to their Gift now, pay later facility. So, if attractive images fail to convert the readers, the feature of paying later can surely do so. The white space around every CTA will give the reader’s mind room to process whether they want to make the purchase or not.

Wrapping Up

I am signing off with an important point (that I talked about at the outset). 

This year, Father’s Day falls on 19th June 2022 for the U.S.A, U.K, Asia, and most parts of the world. However, if you have subscribers in Australia and New Zealand, remember that it will be celebrated on 4th September 2022. Your customers look for inclusivity from the brands they follow, and they certainly wouldn’t want you to mess up such dates.
