10 things Sesame Street can teach us about email marketing

top10-FEATURE-COOKIEMONSTER-yellow

Email marketing can get a lot of good lessons out of Sesame Street. That’s why we originally posted this top ten back when they celebrated their 40th anniversary last year. It’s a fun post and a good way to start any week so, we decided to repost it today just in case you missed it first time around — Jim

As we all know, Sesame Street is celebrating 40 years of being a best friend for all of us growing up. So we got inspired here at The Email Guide and put together the top ten things we’ve learned from the show about eMail marketing.

1– Wanna buy an 8?…probably not a good email marketing subject line.

2– Love what you love with all your heart! Cookie Monster would make a good blogger for Mrs Fields.

3– Twitter like you’re a Big Bird.

4– Bert and Ernie know relationships don’t just happen and you have to work hard on them.

5– Oscar the Grouch reminds us that how you say something is as important as what you say.

6– Mr. Snuffleupagus (when he was imaginary) reminded us that while chasing after more and more possible clients, we should never forget the real ones who got us here.

7– Elmo loves learning something new every day and we should too.

8– Mr. Hooper taught us that serving a community means being a part of it.

9– Kermit knows that being a good listener is the key to any relationship.

10– “Sunny days sweeping the clouds away…” is something any of us would smile at in a email marketing subject line.

Have we missed any Sesame Street insights on email marketing? Of course we have! Post your muppet motivated inspirations!
