What is International Women’s Day?
Before you start coming up with a concept, it’s always good practice to read around the topic. Not only does this help you to better understand the event, it also gives you further inspiration for your campaign.
International Women’s Day takes place each year on 8th March and dates back to the early 1900s. It celebrates the achievements of women and emphasises the importance of gender equality.
The day has massive global significance and is celebrated all around the world. In some countries (including China and Vietnam), the day is a national holiday, whereas in others, it is seen as a day of formal observance.
Traditions vary from gift giving, or charity events, etc. and in recent years, the day has become a huge trend on social media.
Tips for your Women’s Day Email Campaign
Make the theme clear from the get go
Celebrate the day confidently and introduce the topic in your email straight away. Include the term “International Women’s Day” in your subject line so interested readers know they should open your email.
Use a large, central headline to deliver your campaign message. This shows readers that you’re not shy about celebrating women and makes the day the main focus of your email.
Use bold imagery
A picture speaks a thousand words, so use powerful imagery to celebrate strong women. A unique feature image is an effective way to get your message across to your customers and can also be super motivational.
Your feature image could be a colorful illustration, a poignant photo, or a text-based design. Whatever you opt for, position it centrally to ensure it steals the show in your email design.
Here are some uplifting examples:
Celebrate with a promotion
A promotion or special offer is a great way to show that your brand is fully behind the cause. Aside from the regular sale or X% off, you could also think about doing something outside of the box.
Launching a special edition product or holding an event and donating your profits to charity are both good ways to support the cause.
As the old saying goes, “girls just wanna have fun!” If appropriate for your brand, try to include some fun elements to your campaign. This could be bright colors, a fun font, or witty email copy.
This is a positive celebration. Use bold, bright colors like pink, yellow, orange, etc. to bring a celebratory feel to your design.
Remember the cause
This is your company’s chance to show that equal rights are important to you. Remember that the day is about celebrating the achievements of women, and try to include this in your campaign.
Think about how you and your business can celebrate female success and ensure this is reflected in your email’s message. Try showcasing some successful women connected to your industry as a way of recognizing their achievements.
