  • Stick to a few typefaces: Remember that one of email marketing’s most important best practices is to keep your email de-cluttered. Using less than three typefaces will increase your conversion rate. Never clutter an email with more than two to three different typefaces.
  • Above the fold: In order to drive conversion, keep the call to action and main message above the fold. Research has shown call to actions placed below the fold influences the conversion rate by up to 70%. Repeat any call to action at least three times throughout the email message.
  • Subject lines: Another important best practice of email marketing is to write attention-grabbing subject lines. Effective subject lines should also not contain more than about 30 to 55 characters. It should provide readers with a sense of urgency and a hint as to what they can expect to find in the email.
