I look forward to reading it whether or not I win the drawing. Thanks for sharing this!

Chris Nov 24 2010

This book would help me expand HTML email services and break away from the norm of simplistic designs that I rely on to ensure e-mail client compatibility. Client requests for non-text, html-based e-mails are on the rise as it results in a more engaging experience for the recipient and demonstrates increased opportunities for achieving client objectives in their campaign. I also hope it will better teach me how to analyze e-mail campaign results (i.e. opens, click-thrus, etc.).

tvardy Nov 24 2010

Shelley Nov 24 2010

In five days, I start a new job, working for a fabulous charity, called the World Society for the Protection of Animals.

With Social Media gaining more and more space every day, everyone says email is dead. I don’t believe it, though. At my organization, we send about 3 mil emails a year, and we see t he results coming in every day: website visits increase, sign up for events happen, more people connect with us on Facebook, and our recruiters receive several leads from those blasts.

Email is not dead!

Tony Casas Nov 24 2010

We do a lot of email marketing here in house. Not enough to be pro’s or even have a dedicated team member that works on email marketing and design. But, just enough to get annoyed with the fact that our pretty web stuff will not work in email. This book would help us step up the email marketing game and learn how to do some of the prettier web instances in email. Also, how to combat against clients that “want it all” in email.

I want one .. will be very useful as I have to create an email template for the company I work with :)

Sean Hammon Nov 24 2010

Sounds like a very useful book. Thanks.

Joaquin Windmuller Nov 24 2010

I run a website for writers to publish their stories and I’m planning on launching a redesign of the site. The interest in the site has been reducing so designing a powerful email would get more people interested on going back to the site!

Harriett Nov 24 2010

I’m always struggling to come up with effective email campaigns. This book would help me ramp up my abilities.

Felipe Arima Nov 24 2010

I want it!

Amneris Giron Nov 24 2010

I’m a web designer. I’m working for a company that has its own software (Customer Relationship Management called Inmerx) that works with emails, newsletters, sms and others medias. I still believe that an email is a big resource to connect with actuals and prospecting clients. For that reason, I want to make my emails, newsletters, etc more impressive and useful. I think the book could give me many tips and I could learn new things about the theme. Thanks :D

Blaine Cross Nov 24 2010

How would Create Stunning HTML Email That Just Works! help you if you win?
Winning this book would help me to build emails that help our students and prospective students reach their dreams.
I work at the University of Minnesota, with a team of marketers to create emails. Our audience consists of working adults, unemployed job seekers, retired learners, and even high school students. We produce email to recruit, to inform, and to inspire. I would use this book to help create more effective email, more compatible email, more stylish email. I have worked to stay current with HTML email best practices, and while I still have much to learn, I think I’ve done OK. A copy of this book would really help me do better.
I work for the University of Minnesota, in the College of Continuing Education. We help adult students achieve their dreams, maintain their skills, and learn more about the world. We host conferences and lectures, offer full undergraduate and graduate level degrees, and do all this on limited budgets.
I would love to win this book. Thanks for the chance to win!

AJ Webb Nov 24 2010

I would lobe to have this book, it would give me the added ability to set up html emails for my clients, my own business, and the non-profit organizations I work with. I hope I win!

ciara Nov 24 2010

Currently a hybrid designer, I started out in print and crossed over into web – but I am still learning and in our company we create best practices for html emails testing them for each email client and cross browser, there are so many rules to adhere to. I think this would help me up my skill set and be more helpful to carry more of the web production load at my work and expand my marketability as a designer. As well as understanding more about email design and layout.

Glupus Nov 24 2010

This book would be an excellent addition to our department library as we are looking to moving heavily into the email marketing realm and have some very inexperienced, when it comes to the web, old school marketers on our team that would benefit greatly from such a resource.

Ed Perez Nov 24 2010

I think this would be a great resource while I’m “on the road”! I fly a LOT back and forth from Venezuela to NYC (Sometimes 10 hours w/stops) and I try to build websites in the meantime but I’m not always able to
connect to a wireless network for references… You know the kind of questions that you may already know the answer (or may not) but you just forgot for a moment and nobody at the airport can help you =P Something like: “Excuse me sir, what was the code to align a tag to the center of the webpage?” hehe

Looks interesting. Be useful to redesign some email newsletters I’ve written for work.

Derrick Koon Nov 24 2010

If I were to win this I would be able to increase the revenue of the company I work for through email marketing. This would hopefully land me a nice raise.

Sittipong Nov 24 2010

1st mainly thing. It’s will help me to design for inbox.

Because it’s different from browser.

Dan Pallotta Nov 24 2010

To answer the question: such a book would definitely help me fulfill a professional need to produce content-rich, well-designed e-mails that actually work as intended when the recipient reads them. There is more involved than simply pasting RTF into an e-mail program and pressing the “send” button.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Jason Nov 24 2010

How would Create Stunning HTML Email That Just Works! help you if you win?

Well, to not sound like a muppet, I am crap at HTML emails. It’s like coding a web page for 1995. We have been so influenced by good practices in regards to web design and coding that for many of us, HTML emails are a nightmare. So this would help me because, basically I haven’t a clue. I’ve been coding for many years now and for the last four or so, it’s all been about clean semantic and CSS layouts.

Zach S Nov 24 2010

“HTML email that just works” will provide a platform that will help force my company to acknowledge email non standardization. They simply have no clue, and the web isn’t really a good place to direct senior “non-designer/developers” to read more about what email can and can’t do.

James Nov 24 2010

I will use it to help out on my company’s marketing emails. After been doing them for several years already, I know a lot of tips and tricks, and limitations, but I’m sure there must be a whole lot more that I still don’t know!

I’ve just started using hand-coded HTML, not ready-made templates, in my Newsletters, and I’m not so familiar with HTML E-mail compatibility, so this would be good learning resource.

Edison A. Leon Nov 24 2010

This is what I do most of the time, though I get design part from graphic designers I want to create my own from scratch, and I think the books will help a lot.

I regularly create HTML emails for the company I work for, and it’s never something I look forward to! I’m currently limited to using a dated, custom CMS with an ancient version of FCKeditor to create them – a nightmare! I’ve been meaning to learn much more about creating good HTML emails, and plan to discuss the advantages of moving us over to Campaign Monitor once I know more. I’d love to win a copy of this book, to aid my own development and move my company forward.

It would help me immensely as I currently maintain a website that sends an HTML newsletter to 23,800+ (and counting) subscribers each month. Every time I send out one, I feel so dirty after coding all those font tags and table td widths and background colors. (Perhaps there is a better way?) It might also help me (and convince me to) test on several email clients. Right now I usually just test on Yahoo! and Gmail among other web-based clients.

I would also like to know how I could have done better job at a past project that blasted a daily newsletter to subscribers using mainly Lotus Notes. That was just plain nightmare!

I’ve avoided e-mail marketing for fear of screwing it up. I’m a perfectionist like most designers and want to know how to do it right before I even try!
