The Honesty in Email Marketing Hyperbole
In celebration of DMN's Email Week, we filter the honesty from the hyperbole in email marketing.
The language of marketing is a body of words, phrases and terms directed toward describing the purpose of a company's products. In reading the language, the consumer should have a clear and concise understanding of the brand.
However, in email marketing, this is not always so easy to convey. Companies are forced to evade spam filters by crafting ambiguous headlines or hyperbolic catchphrases.
In celebration of DMN's Email Week, we have decided to filter the honesty from the hyperbole, pull the big from the ambiguous, and discover exactly what advertisements are saying to you. (The following headers have been pulled from actual emails).
