If you want to motivate your readers to take an action ASAP, a countdown timer is a perfect match for your requirements. With timers, you can draw users’ attention to items on sale or build effective teaser emails to announce your product launch. 

By using Stripo, you can equip your back to school emails with countdown timers within a few minutes. No worries, our timers are completely web-safe, so they will be displayed properly across various devices and email clients. 

That’s how you can add a timer to your email:

  • drag the “Timer” block into your template;

  • choose your favorite font and set its color and size.

2. Interactive content

Interactive back to school email will brighten up your campaign and make your messages recognizable. By using Stripo, you can enliven your emails with:

  • animated buttons for better engagement;

  • image carousel to showcase a wide range of school supplies on one screen;

  • accordion to make your messages more compact;

  • image rollover effect to demonstrate school supplies from different angles, show a close-up, or color variety; 

  • embedded questionnaires to evaluate the outcomes of your back to school sale quickly and effectively.

3. Background image for the entire email

A thematic and attention-grabbing background image can either make your back to school email campaign a success or distract subscribers from the key purpose of your newsletter. To set the right tone for the entire email, don’t forget to choose relevant background images that evoke positive feelings and support the central idea of your back to school sale.

4. Video content

Videos are a perfect tool to skyrocket your CTR and motivate subscribers to interact with your company more often. By using videos, you can present new school supplies and explain how to use them, announce an event, and show off your company culture. Instead of overloading your subscribers with lengthy texts, we recommend you equip your back to school newsletters with appealing and informative videos.

Who doesn’t like a good game? Whether your audience includes teens, college students, or older adults, you can still surprise readers with email gamification. A sense of competition, accomplishment, and fun will create positive associations with your company, enhance brand awareness, and motivate your recipients to wait for new messages from you. 

By using email gamification, you can enrich your back to school newsletters with the following types of games:

  • a wheel of fortune to offer discounts for school shopping;

  • quizzes and quests to get prizes (discounts, certificates, etc.);

  • scratch cards to provide instant rewards like cash back or free shipping;

  • word games to motivate recipients to interact with your back to school emails longer.

6. Custom fonts

Besides a concise subject line and a recognizable sender name, fonts are one of the central things subscribers set their eyes on. A legible and appealing font associated with your organization will make your back to school newsletters look noticeable and stylish. With our email design platform, you can wrap your message in standard web-safe fonts, non-standard fonts, and custom fonts. 

You can apply various fonts to menus, text blocks, CTA buttons, headings, and banners, but don’t forget to use our testing tool to ensure your fonts are displayed correctly across different email clients.
