Spice Up Your Text with Emojish

Let’s face it. Wading through your email inbox can be overwhelming sometimes. Why not break it up with a splash of color or a wee smiling face? Using emojis is not only easy on the eyes but also boosts clicks. According to a report from Experian, 56% of brands using them in their subject lines had higher open rates.

Adding emojis to subject lines has several benefits. First, it helps the subject line stand out from other competitors’ emails as most email subject lines do not use emojis. An emoji can also save a word, thus preserving space when there are limits to how much text users will see on their devices. Most of all, emojis are light and fun, and especially appeal to a younger demographic. They lend themselves well to added creativity and are great for events, sale promotions, and seasonal or holiday offerings.

However, there are some factors to consider when using emojis. Certain images might not show on different operating systems or devices. They might not be as effective for B2B audiences or a more mature demographic.

Because using them is not an exact science, it can be a bit risky. It is why you should turn to Cain & Company, a full-service advertising and marketing agency, for assistance adding emojis and pursuing your other marketing goals. Our talented professionals are ready to serve the unique needs of our clients in an ever-evolving print and digital services market, and that includes the use of emojis and more.

Scanlans Bar & Grill website redesign
The Scanlan’s wanted their Rockford, Illniois, bar and grill, Scanlan’s, to have its own website. Not only a great place for evening entertainment, but also a perfect lunch spot for the businesses nearby, Scanlan’s, located at 2921 City View Drive in Rockford, opened in 1999 and is a sister bar of Rockford’s Filling Station. They contacted Cain & Company to help with this marketing project. Our team worked with the owners to create a new logo, take photos, and build their website. (Of course, we sampled their amazing menu items!) Our designers expertly captured the neighborhood vibe of this fantastic spot for food, beverages, and entertainment.
