Phrasee’s phavorite marketing tweets of the month: December 2017
December is a month of contrasts…
Sure, the weather outside is frightful, but it’s tough to complain too much when Christmas and New Years are there to ease our collective pain.
The contrast is even starker here in the email marketing sphere. We’ve all been extremely busy prepping our holiday campaigns and getting our ducks in a row for the year to come. Frankly, it’s been a bit stressful. Then, suddenly, everything grinds to a halt. We visit our families. We give gifts. We get gifts. We stuff our greedy faces. We catch up with old friends. Email marketing, our singular driving force for the first 3 weeks of the month, suddenly becomes the furthest thing from our minds.
Oh so nice.
With all this going on, did the world’s emailgeeks find the time to post any awesome tweets?
Let’s find out.
Email is an excellent channel for many things, but it has its limits…

And its fair share of first world problems…
My biggest pet peeve: telling me there is too much white space between elements. I MEASURED THE MOCK UP, YO! #emailgeeks

Are we the only ones who’ve noticed the lack of gifs on Twitter these days? #bringthemback

Yes, email has managed to dodge the grave for yet another year. Who knew?
So #emailgeeks, fill me in on what’s been going on in the last week since I’ve been mia from Twitter. Has email died 😜?

But things are getting tougher…
#emailgeeks be ready!
Google Inbox now asks if you’d like to unsubscribe from a mailing list if you ignore emails for a month. 📨 pic.twitter.com/J1i5McfRJC

At least we can always count on our families for understanding and support…
That awkward moment when your dad asks if he can purchase a list of your subscribers…

Such a fine line, isn’t it…
Advertising or Spam ? 🤔🤔 pic.twitter.com/sJinIkwenu

But none of that mattered in the end. We had far more important things to attend to. It was Christmas, after all…
You’re damn right i’m making a quince glaze.

A time for bringing people together…
Wait! Meeting up is a thing? Also I hear there’s an #emailgeeks slack and I’m somehow not in it…

Becuase community is what the holidays are all about…

Well, that and threats, of course…

The Mystery of the month: Phrasee’s personalization fail: Ironic, or genuine? Much like COVFEFE, the world may never know for sure…
To spice up the day, we ran a little office pool today, and yep, 8 people so far have emailed in about this missed personalisation. The over/under was 10 – come on #emailgeeks don’t let us down! pic.twitter.com/RgBKkP3M7L

Maybe we’ll finally learn the truth at one of 2018’s awesome email marketing conferences…
