“A disciplined segmented seasonal mailing always experiences high open rates”.

  • This is a tried-and-tested method with the 2016 Valentine’s Day campaigns that started nearly three weeks back, unlike 7-10 days before the event. The Valentine’s theme based emails received 30% open rates sent to 47,000 people!

Such longer promotional period with the right timing to fire email arrows into the right hearts played the trick!

But what digital branding strategies laid the groundwork? The answer is the psychology behind a crafting a brand message much well planned beforehand.

Human psychology is the brainchild of brand building. And the best way to reach the human is getting a message across that can spark right sentiments, emotions & psychological responses.
