Your customers have free money to spend right now. How will your Tax Day email campaign convert them? (You do have a Tax Day plan, don’t you?)

If you already have access to MailCharts, check out our curated Tax Day email collection.

Most companies completely miss the Tax Day promotional opportunity. That being said, a few companies did do a great job in 2015. Let’s look at their emails and get your creative juices flowing.

Crazy 8

Crazy 8 - Tax Day treat! Free shipping + extra 15% off!

Instead of the typical one-off promotion, Crazy8 sent a promotion along with this reminder:

Sending promotional reminders is a great way to increase email frequency without having to go through the entire planning process required for a new email campaign.

Just don’t overdo it 😉

If you haven’t done so already, make sure your emails are relevant on Tax Day.

Happy emailing!
