Being an email marketer is a tough job. On top of developing drip campaigns, email marketers must also create customer journeys, design, write and create emails. As if this didn’t seem like enough work, each email must also be tested, lists must be segmented, results must be analyzed, and the different campaigns must constantly be improved.
With the rise of marketing automation, the personalization aspect has become a little easier – but people in email marketing could still use some help.
Google Chrome is not only a fantastic browser due to its flexibility and speed, it also houses a large marketplace for extensions that make it much, much easier to find the right tools for your email campaigns.
But, since there are thousands of Google Chrome extensions out there, it is also easy to get lost.
Here are 6 of the best extensions that will aid you in creating beautiful email campaigns every time.
Designing an email newsletter isn’t always easy. The last thing you should worry about is finding the right colour to match your overall theme.
