Newsletters about email marketing

L-R: Really Good Emails, Email Love, and ActionRocket

First, let’s check out a bunch of newsletters from brands that know email like the back of their hands. These eight options are primarily focused on email design and strategy. They include marketing newsletters from agencies, publishers, and email technology companies.

1. Really Good Emails newsletter

If you’re not already subscribed to the RGE newsletter, you're missing out. Really Good Emails is home to a massive collection of campaigns (10,000+) from all sorts of brands. It’s a treasure trove of ideas for email developers, designers, and marketing strategists.

Their newsletter hits inboxes twice a week. It includes some of the most-popular designs and trends in email marketing as well as a collection of curated articles from email brands, tech publications, and more. Plus, every edition starts and ends with a GIF - one to make you laugh and one to show you how to use them in emails.

2. Email Love newsletter

Email Love is another excellent website for email design and content inspiration. This collection of “beautifully crafted emails” is curated by Andy King, an email geek from New Zealand who’s been designing and coding emails for over 10 years.
The Email Love newsletter comes out every week and includes Andy’s favorite new additions to the site. By the way, you can submit your own designs and nominations for potential curation.

3. Email Weekly from ActionRocket

ActionRocket is a digital marketing agency based in the UK that specializes in awesome email marketing. Their weekly newsletter is also awesome.

Remember how video rental stores used to have a shelf of staff picks? That’s basically what you get with this email marketing newsletter. ActionRocket team members share interesting articles, industry news, and some of their own original content too.

4. Holistic Insights newsletter

There must be something in the water over in the UK - because here’s another email marketing agency with a sweet newsletter.  Holistic is technically an email marketing consultancy lead by award-winning business and marketing author, Kath Pay.

Holistic Insights is a “fortnightly email newsletter” (Don’t Google it, Americans. That means every two weeks.) It features important news and industry articles on email marketing from around the web. You can also sign up to hear about Holistic’s webinars, events, and exclusive guides.

5. Only Influencers newsletter

This might sound like a newsletter for Instagram pseudo-celebrities, but it’s far from that. Run by Jeanne Jennings, Only Influencers is a members-only group for veterans of the email industry.

The good news is, you don’t have to be a member (or an influencer) to subscribe to this email newsletter. Many of the contributors to Only Influencers’ blog are founders and executives. So, if you like big picture ideas, this is for you.

12. The Open Rates Newsletter – Val Geisler

What sets a great email campaign apart from the rest of the pack? That’s what email marketer Val Geisler explores in her weekly marketing newsletter.

14. The Weekly Email Marketing Newsletter – Chase Dimond

First of all, you know you wish your name was Chase Dimond. It sounds like a superhero alter ego or a James Bond villain. But Chase is actually a self-described “email nerd.” Now, I don’t know if the email geeks and email nerds get along. However, I’m pretty sure they both hate email posers and don’t even get them started on the email jocks.

Chase is the co-founder of an email marketing agency called Boundless Labs. His newsletter hits your inbox every Monday. It includes advice for ecommerce marketing and campaigns that make money, which seems to be Chase’s specialty.

18. Total Annarchy – Ann Handley

Speaking of things everyone loves... the always amiable Ann Handley is pretty hard to hate. (But I guess I’ll keep trying.) She’s the founder of the popular website MarketingProfs, which also has a newsletter that includes advice for B2B email geeks.

But here, we’re recommending Ann’s personal newsletter. According to Ann, this is more of an actual letter than a newsletter. Every two weeks, she’ll let you know about what’s on her mind, what she finds interesting, and what kind of “high-spirited shenanigans” she’s up to.  Those kinds of shenanigans are far better than the low-spirited variety.
