Do You Use Special Days As Email Marketing Ideas?
If you are searching for email marketing ideas then why don’t you consider taking a rather obscure path and do something that your email list members will probably find amusing, entertaining and helpful, especially if you can weave the subject matter into the message that you are giving.
This idea centres on the use of a "Day". You may ask what on earth this is all about. Once you see for yourself the number of "Days" there presently are you will no doubt start to realize that there is great potential marketing opportunities waiting to be exploited. You just need to research and decide on which "Day" you could use to begin with.
So what is meant by the term "Day"? There seems to be an ever growing list of a day being dedicated to something or other. Now, some of the causes are very plausible and some are just weird. The never ending list goes from Peanut Butter Lovers’ Day, Plant A Flower Day, Old Stuff Day, National Frozen Food Day to Ear Muff Day and covers almost every conceivable interest you can think of.

There is nothing to stop you inventing a day especially for your email marketing purposes. You can create your very own special day when there are special offers, discounts and free stuff, even a competition. The only limits are your imagination and energy!
This idea of riding on the coat tails of a specific "Day" and weave it into your email marketing is one that most information marketers do not take full advantage of.
