I have never done a study, but my hypnosis training tells me that images are very important to people.  So, yes I always send in color + a picture or HTML on sites that allow those functions.

Colors used sparingly are a good way to attract attention to your main points. But many ads I see are way overdone. I just close them out without reading the content because it is too visually overwhelming

I do very well with text ads...I keep em short as possible because most marketers dont wanna read it.  There has been big response for

striking headline a few lines of copy and ads that have bullet points. then a statement to sign up now.

I have found that on my own sites if I want to promote via a text or traffic link if I make it a single colour (yes I am an Aussie and we spell it that way LOL ) it does stand out from the rest of the links. With these type of ads you can use the font command for colour bold and size. So yes I do believe that colour is worth using.

 

Now graphics yes absolutely however I am still do not know how too include graphics in a solo to create that impact.

The one important factor to consider is whether or not the viewers will see the colors. I don't use them for the most part. I tend to agree with some comments made above that suggest they can be distracting. I have seen some emails that create eye strain just looking at them. I do use bold and italics, but not colors.

I wonder how many people take the time to send their ads in color on sites that allow HTML?

 

Marketing Checkpoint  is very easy. Everything you need is already here.

 

I always take the few seconds that it takes to send in color and even ad a picture.

 

There is no doubt that your recipients eyes are drawn more easily to color ads than black & white.

 

What say you?

I don`t think it really matters for me, rather info in the message

I agree with many of the comments in this category. (Too numerous to mention).  Here is something I have been doing lately, where HTML is allowed, just post a picture.  Let's face it, since the web site is doing the selling, this saves the reader time.  Also, you might just print 1 word or 1 very short phrase that is designed to make the reader curious.

Yeah colorful things are good but those that are with too much colors are often ignored. Or some used it to put emphasis on important words and the rest same color.

I agree that the message is super important, but if your contact never sees the message ........  I believe that it is our job to do the best that we can to lead the reader to the message.  It all starts with your subject line.  Is it compelling?  Does it make us curious.  OK, now they have clicked on it.  What are they seeing?  Is your message too long, too short or even boring.  Is it plain old black on white?  Here's where color and/or a photo can help.  There is no question that our attention is drawn to pictures before words.  My last comment:  Don't forget you only have a few seconds to grab someone's attention.  Make the most of it.

In emails, I use Plain text no color or pictures.

 

I like it plain and simple. If I'm not interested in your subject title, I don't care how much colors or pictures that you use in the body of the text.

 

Okay, I have been online a long and have seen it all or most of it. :)

Tommie, I get it. You don't like it.  OK, but what about what the majority of people like.  You are selling to them, not to yourself.

I didn't say that I didn't like it. I just use plain text in my emails.

 

I signup a lot of people with plain text, I guess they're more interested in what I'm offering. :)

I like to use a good mix of color where I can, it's good to be creative and make your ads stand out.

I agree that colors can be distracting to some people so I prefer to use just standard text with highlighted color text for the link

:P :D B) :rolleyes:

 

Most sites only allow one link at the most, in my experience.

 

Too much color or too many colors can be confusing

or even irritating to the prospective reader

I dont use much colour.

 

Bold, Italic, and sometimes background color. But Im a bit too carefull with it.

 

I also always heard rumours, expecially in Safelists that html usually might decrease in views because it can trigger spam.

 

Can anyone confirm this? or is it just a myth?

 

Best

Bruno

Whenever I can use color I will do the Title in color. Most people will not read the email unless there is something in the Title that gets their attention. I also found that when I am adding a list of benefits within an email, I like to add color to the specifics of each point. For example, if the benefit is 'use the mailer to promote your main business', I will do color for the specific benefit and bold text.

 

I find that people will glance at the title, maybe scan the email, and only click through if something stands out that they believe they need. I use low, non-glaring colors, usually red like above, or green or blue. For me, glaring color is a turn-off. I don't like bright yellow highlighting.
