Let’s face it… everywhere you go social media follows you like your own shadow. It’s a personalized newspaper with updates, statuses, likes, dislikes, pokes etc. on everything and anything!
Although I love my social media, sometimes I want to read (or just look at) the latest news in my industry, do a little shopping or even lust about a getaway. The best way to hear about/from my favourite brands, shops or companies is by signing up to their newsletter (eDM’s).
There are a few that I look forward to receiving every week and my favourites are below;
It’s a necessity to stay up to date with the advertising and media news when your in this industry – things can change dramatically overnight so I like to read the following eDM’s everyday (when time permits of course). The two bibles for the advertising industry – AdNews and B&T Today. You can count on these emails to always bring you the latest information;
2. B&T Today
Upworthy, this site posts videos and content of “things that matter”. Uploaded into different categories and themes, the best of the best make it into the weekly eDM’s! Check it out and … pass ‘em on!’
4. The Design Files
Just a little bit of inspiration…
5. Temple and Webster
Daily dose of homewares, art and furniture on sale – all designed in a clear, concise and functional email – Yes please!
The Vouge eDm’s are always a bit of fun and differ in content. They always email the important information for example, the reason to watch Wimbledon….
7. Tony Bianco
Because lets face it, they hand deliver to your workplace within three hours… that’s all the enticing I need.
8. Hard To Find
A fantastically designed, simple and easy to navigate site – hard to find is a great, and relatively new, online store doing it all right – the perfect idea for last minute gifts or presents for some that has everything! (Added in another image to show you the way in which each eDM is totally different)
For anyone that has been to my desk lately you know I am a lover of stationary…. Needless to say I follow Kikki.K religiously as, well… they sell highlighters there!
Kikki.K actually also have a great eCommerce site and tailor their eDM’s perfectly per season!
Although an American based holiday email (meaning most of the content isn’t relevant for my budgets), the clean and simple design is a great way to lust over the next holiday… escape from your desk for a while during the day!
Another of my lust over eDM’s – nothing in these are particularly affordable however Ms Paltrow’s use of themes and designed icons are a great reference for many of our clients, I also enjoy reading about her travels across the world and wishing for some of the shoes! A good read and a Thursday lunchtime ritual.
12. Tiny Me
This is a fantastic new site (relatively) that has proved itself time and time again for my four nieces and nephews (and counting) – personalized, colour matched toys and bags for kids… yes please! These guys are on the rise!
Ones to watch… if you are looking for a few more ideas, a few of my honorable mentions… the Iconic, Williams-Sonoma, Zanui, Hunting for George*, Last-minute and Pottery Barn.
