[Worksheet] 20 Writing Prompts for Quick and Creative Non-promotional Emails

Your customers want more than promotional emails from your retail business. Are you giving them tips to use your product effectively? Have you introduced them to the people behind your business? When was the last time you asked them for feedback? To drive sales with email marketing, go beyond self-promotion; look for ways to provide value and build customer relationships.

But even if you want to send a non-promotional email, how do you know what to send?

We get it. Sometimes coming up with an idea is the hardest part. If you’re stuck, use these 20 writing prompts as inspiration. We show you how to use these ideas in our free Virtual Workshop for Retailers: Write Your Email in 15 Minutes or Less.
