Create Beautiful Emails with this Tool!
Last year, I heard about a new company offering a different kind of email platform.
his platform has allowed me to easily distribute free tools, notify my list of upcoming events, and stay connected with the people who really want to hear from me during this strange COVID-19 time when so many businesses are turning to the online world in order to survive and thrive.
Today, I’m talking about Flodesk, why I dig it so much, and how it quickly became one of my favorite business tools.
First, let me talk about another tool, though: Canva. You may have heard of it, since it has kind of cornered the market on creating great images fast. And one of the ways Canva has done this is with the use of beautiful templates that you can modify for your business and to which you can add your own branding. Flodesk has taken this same model and applied it to email marketing. In Flodesk, I’m able to take my own images and put them seamlessly into gorgeous templates that they’ve already set up for me and that are super easy to customize.
One of the things that was a pet peeve for me with other email platforms was that they just produced a text-based email. Now, don’t get me wrong. I have friends who use these other platforms with great success. But as a photographer, I’m a very visual person, and I have LOVED Flodesk’s focus on incorporating images. It has been so helpful to use more photos of what I’m talking about in my emails, whether that’s a discount for headshots or a series of product photos, and do it in an attractive, appealing way that drives home my message with those visuals. Since I’ve been using Flodesk, I’ve had more emails opened, gotten more clicks, and made more sales because I’ve been able to tie everything into what matters most for my business: the visuals.
Flodesk has also made the financial side of email marketing easy. They offer a free trial so you can see if Flodesk is the right fit for you before you make a financial commitment. And if you decide to sign up, the service is VERY affordable. As of right now (April 2020), Flodesk charges a flat fee of $19 with a referral (more on that below). Whether you have 20,000 subscribers or only 500, you pay $19 for gorgeous emails. The end. And as you grow your list, your price doesn’t grow along with it.
So if you’re a photographer or other creative looking to send more visually appealing emails with less effort, Flodesk is where you should be. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
