by Heather H. Huhman

5 Elements of Successful Email Marketing Design [Examples]
by Anastasia Dyakovskaya
[5 min read]  
 Of all the different ways we have to communicate with our customers, email has the potential to be one of the most effective and engaging. Email is a channel you can fully control, a way to speak to your audience one-on-one, and a medium that allows for endless creativity. Newsletters and email campaigns are powerful content marketing tools, though their potential is easily lost – deleted, unread, or unopened. Average open rates hover at about 25 percent across industries, while click-through rates are under 5 percent. But there are ways to rise to the top, get read, and drive readers to your desired course of action. That’s where great design comes in.  Read more here.

Putting An End To Meeting Mania
by Lynn Taylor
[3 min read]
If you’ve worked in just about any office lately, this may not come as a big surprise: Meetings can be a colossal productivity drain—they can create a treadmill of a work existence for many, where seemingly little gets done. In fact, the 2017 American Express OPEN ‘Get Business Done’ survey says that more than one-third of employees spend nearly 1,200 hours a year in meetings they call “pointless.” That’s 150 work days, or 30 work weeks a year. Add to that related pre- and post-meeting time, and you’ve got business moving at a virtual snail’s pace. Read more here

12 Truly Inspiring Company Vision and Mission Statement Examples
by Lindsey Kolowich
Where does customer loyalty come from? Think about those brands that you purchase from over and over, even when there are cheaper options out there. Do you usually fly on a particular airline? Do you buy your coffee from the same place every morning? Do you recommend a specific restaurant whenever out-of-towners ask for suggestions?
