We don’t mean to step on the toes of any social media marketers, but it’s time to shine a light on email subscribers. Email may often be seen as an old school channel, but the truth is, it pulls weight in the marketing arena that’s unmatched by other channels. Why? Because of the special relationship that email creates between a brand and a subscriber.
Given that it’s easier to build a personalized connection and track ROI with an email subscriber, we may even go so far as to say an email “subscribe” is more powerful than a social “like.” Here’s why.
We’re thrilled to share that we’ve teamed up with the team at RGE to bring Litmus’ Pre-Send Testing right into RGE—so you can see whether the emails you draw inspiration from look great in different email clients and whether or not they follow key accessibility best practices.
Dark Mode. The tech industry is buzzing with these two words, and email marketing is no exception. Last year, Apple added Dark Mode to its desktop email client. In 2019, Dark Mode came to iOS Mail and other industry heavyweights, including Gmail, announced support for Dark Mode. There’s no denying Dark Mode is taking over the inbox—and making sure emails look great in this reading environment is the new big challenge for email marketers.
In this post, we break down what email clients offer Dark Mode, how each client’s Dark Mode settings impact your email designs, and what you can do to improve your emails for subscribers that read in Dark Mode.
Litmus Live 2019 has come to a close, with our last stop in San Francisco last week. As always, we had an incredible two days with email geeks across dozens of sessions, three workshops, and networking opportunities.

Animated imagery is one of the top email design trends for 2019. Email marketers everywhere are looking to add movement to their campaigns—and the most popular way of doing that is by using the power of animated GIFs.
But animated GIFs aren’t the only file type that allows you to add movement to imagery. Animated Portable Network Graphics—or APNGs—are an option you might want to explore, too.
The most crucial step to successful marketing planning for the year ahead is understanding how your email channel performed over the past months.

Last month, we introduced our October Month of Giving, highlighting our company’s core value of “Be Beyond Litmus.” This value highlights our employees’ activity in their communities, both inside and outside Litmus, and includes a Volunteer Time Off (VTO) day every year to volunteer for the organization of their choice.
We’re thrilled that so many of our employees decided to join in and use their VTO day in October to support many different organizations. Curious about those organizations and how the Litmus team supported them? Read on to learn a little bit more about each charity.
At Litmus, we talk a lot about Trust. In fact, Trust is one of our core Litmus principles. Trust permeates everything we do at Litmus. We want Litmus to be a partner you can count on, so we constantly improve the reliability of our product, always focus on having the best customer support, and put privacy and security at the center of everything we do.
Litmus is very proud to have successfully completed the SOC 2 Type 1 examination on August 31, 2019.
Getting an email out the door involves a multitude of steps, tools, and stakeholders. A streamlined process keeps projects moving quickly and ensures high-quality output. A broken or labored process, on the other hand, can be damaging to your program and your team.
But what slows down email workflows—and where do mistakes creep in? For our 2019 State of Email Workflows research, we asked 3,000+ email marketers how they get campaigns out the door and what challenges they face along the way. In this webinar, we shared how you can tackle these pain points head-on and provided actionable advice on how to improve your email workflow. Didn’t have a chance to watch the webinar live? Don’t worry. We’ve got the full recording and Q&A for you.
