Optimizing Templates with A/B Testing
If we take a look at this from a purely designers' perspective we can state that templates for email marketing campaigns aren't universally effective. What we like to say is: 'Test, test, and always
test', because even though new trends are showing up more and more it doesn't mean they will be equally effective for every company.
Some work better for specific brands and audiences than others. A/B testing plays a vital role in identifying the winning design elements and it is extremely important you always test before making any big changes to your program.
More importantly, A/B testing promotes a data-driven approach to design, reducing the risk of relying on subjective design preferences. It serves as a reality check, helping marketers steer clear of assumptions and stay grounded in empirical evidence.
