Subject Line: Two things we love: our moms…and a SALE
Mother’s Day is right around the corner. I love Loft’s approach to celebrating the holiday. They decided to do a mother-daughter photoshoot with the staff! The email introduces the staff member & their mom, has a personal quote about their relationship, and (the best part) includes a throwback photo of the two of them together. I like how personal this email is — you really feel like you’re getting to know the people “behind the curtain” at Loft. To top it off, all moms are dressed in Loft attire! It’s a great way of showing how versatile their clothing line is. Plus, it doesn’t take any stretch of the imagination to picture your own mom in the same wardrobe. They include calls-to-action that lead you to buy the clothing they’re wearing.
Subject Line: Real moms, real style
Loft took two different approaches with this message. In this email they focus less on the individual staff members (removed the names, quotes and throwback photos) and made it more of a general message. They rely on you to click through to the landing page to learn more about the staff/moms. In this email it’s less obvious to me that the mothers are wearing Loft clothing (in the other email the copy points out that the moms are stepping in as models). Because of this, I find the main call-to-action (shop now) a little out of place. I would expect to see the “meet our moms” CTA first. Still, it’s very sweet and personal (because of the photos), but I favor the content in the other version more.
