Behind the Campaign

Behind the Campaign: Visual Insights Newsletters

You know those bland newsletters that you keep forgetting to unsubscribe from?

Everyone else gets those too, including your prospects and clients. There’s a lot of noise when it comes to newsletters.

That’s why we set out to make a newsletter like no other.

With eye-catching graphics, information backed by hours of research, and professional copywriting, our Visual Insights Newsletters are anything but average.

However, getting attention isn’t the be-all and end-all…it’s simply a means toward meaningful connections that drive business.

One of our snappy members, Cleve, said it best:

“Snappy Kraken not only provides great content that is customizable, there is a plan to guide readers to an opportunity to take action to get the help they need.” (To read more, click here)

The first three episodes of Behind the Campaign focused on a couple of our Lead Generation campaigns – “Retirement Income Teeter-Totter” and “Retiring in Uncertain Times” – and the work that goes into our High-Engagement Emails.

This episode pulls the curtain back on everything that goes into our longstanding and most versatile campaign type: the Visual Insights Newsletter.
