Hi Reader,

It’s the end of another week and here is your weekly wrap-up. Growth hacks, content formulas, and of course bite-sized news. Let’s get into it.

The Effect of Personalising your Emails with [first_name]

The money is in the list. It’s not a new concept but email has come a long way and simple personalisations can have massive positive results for your bottom line.

Including the receiver’s name in the email subject line increases their attention. Open rates increase by 6-23%, clicks by 7-32% and unsubscribes fell by 11-17%.

Fan of the emoji?

The Unicode Consortium, the organisation responsible for selecting emoji icons, is considering 31 new emojis to be added to Android and iOS next year. They include a jellyfish, a wireless symbol, and variations of a pushing hand.

Why do we care: Emojis are used in ad copy, captions, stories, short-form videos, and emails to grab attention. There’s a thing called “emoji fatigue” and to help combat this, surprise customers with different emojis. Adding 31 new options to the mix is definitely welcomed.

Growth Hack: Rule of 5
