We just love it when a great plan comes together… BrightWave is a finalist for a prestigious New York City-based OMMA online media award for the first time ever. The nod for Best Email Campaign went to our team for an Equifax email that represents some of our best teamwork and most creative thinking on dynamic, personalized content to date.

I can’t adequately describe in words the value of attending and participating in the Litmus Email Design Conference (aka #TEDC14).

As the Litmus Email Design Conference winds down, we’re swimming in new, innovative ideas for our clients’ emails—like Scrooge McDuck backstroking in them. Here are four unexpected, immediate takeaways that we’re itching to implement. Right now. It’s time to blow up the CTA. Buy Now. Take the survey. Learn more. Bo-ring.

Sure, there’s something to be said for huge, expansive digital conferences, like the upcoming ExactTarget Connections spectacular—places where you never know what you’re going to learn about (the collaborative economy?) or who you’re going to meet (Will.i.am?!). But we’ve also got a choice phrase or two for conferences like the Litmus Email Design Conference, which we’ll be attending this week with bells on. It’s small,… Read more »
Email continues to rock, and this week special guest contributor Jay Jhun of BrightWave provides some reasons why email is as powerful as ever – and maybe even better than ever.
Unlike the well-known hip-hop hit that talks about problems, I believe that marketers should understand there are at least 99 reasons why email marketing has a bright and bold future (and social media ain’t one!).

We’ve been brimming with pride over our new space, which is over twice the size… Read more »

Often used as click bait, top expert lists are not always the most perfectly curated resources. We know this as both marketers and consumers, but with a catchy headline or a topic that is relevant or appealing, these lists can be a bit hard to resist. A recent expert list caught a lot of people’s attention in our little email marketing world. This list came… Read more »

World, meet the new BrightWave logo. It’s fresh. It’s dynamic. It’s got just the right amount of modern pop. Just like us. Compliment fishing aside, our original logo had seen some years. Developed in 2003, it was a “trade project,” a barter for our email services that served us very well for over 11 years. It reflected all that we aspired to be as… Read more »
