Spring newsletter strategies

It's time for spring cleaning!


In this spirit of vitality, explore new ways to captivate your audience, clean up your mailing lists and recreate a user experience that will flourish all season long!

Embrace springtime, when the possibilities for communication multiply, by producing newsletters that will shine more than ever.

Newsletters are coming out of hibernation!

The first impression is crucial!

In both traditional and new media, January is generally a slow month for most communications professionals. A drop in newsletter traffic is also noted in inboxes. The pace of email communications gradually returns to normal until spring arrives, when newsletters return to their usual cruising speed.

Whether your newsletters have spent the last few months in hibernation or not, it’s time to activate your campaigns in these first days of spring – but not just in any old way! We’re entering a phase of renewal that calls for a reinvigoration of newsletters.

You have the opportunity to capture attention and breathe new life into your campaigns to reach an audience hungry for novelty. Your newsletters should reflect the energy of spring, evoking a feeling of freshness and optimism.

Adapt your newsletters to the new season

Spring is a season of change

After your hibernation of the first months of the year, your subscribers are thirsty for your news. Combine social networks with your newsletter strategies. These two media work great together. Post short versions of your events on your social networks and distribute the long version in your newsletters.

Any reason is a good one to hit “send”:

  • What are your new products?
  • What is your new program?
  • What is your vision for the new year?

Are you in a position where there are only so many ways to reinvent the wheel? Then it’s time for a good visual makeover.

Reinventing while keeping balance

Spring is the perfect season to rethink your newsletter graphics, or to launch a new visual identity campaign! Give your newsletters a facelift. An overhaul of your graphic template or visual layout is an excellent way to surprise your contacts!

What’s more, subscribers are more receptive to changes at this time of year. They are more inclined to clean out their inboxes, and the “unsubscribe” button is never far away. Reinventing yourself before they say “well, I’m tired of receiving these messages” is a great idea!

Maneuvering through opportunities

Strategically plan your mailings over time and think about your actions. Avoid unscheduled mailings by using an email marketing calendar, and improve your methods regarding email communications. Think long-term!

During spring, the calendar is full of events that are ideal for sending out newsletters. Of course, there’s Easter, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, but there are also other occasions in your community. Are the opening of terraces or the first outdoor shows not a good fit with your business model? Create your own marketing events and promote them!

Subscriber list cleaning is the heart of your data

Is a little update necessary?

When was the last time you updated your database?

Do not be afraid to clean up your database by removing addresses that don’t open your newsletters. If there’s no interest, there’s no point in pushing, and as the saying goes: one contact lost, ten found! Not only will your emailing costs be lower, but the spam filters will thank you for it.

Prioritize the subscribers who read your content by launching an automated re-engagement campaign and integrating a dynamic welcome email for your new contacts.
