Subject Line: 20% Off, Happy Friday!
Date: Friday, August 28, 2009
Just when you thought you were out of clever ideas for how to spin a sale…check out Tobi. They’re TGIF approach is refreshingly simple and cleverly executed, not to mention that it’s 20% off regular-priced merchandise…not sale and clearance! While most retailers are waiting to use the Labor Day handle for their big fall savings push, Tobi’s smart approach makes sure all their loyal fans spend their hard-earned cash on their site first. Nice thinking. Still wishing they had a preheader and FTAF in their emails, but they do have the SWYN icons at the bottom, so that’s a step in the right direction. And let’s not overlook the straightforward subject line that tells the entire story in only four words and still has personality. Well done.
