Tips & Tricks

1

Keep it educational.

Try not to conduct a sales pitch. Use case studies when applicable.

2

Less is more.

Limit text. Your audience should be focused on you and what you’re saying. 

3

Use graphics.

Imagery should add to the conversation, not detract from it.

4

Avoid animations.

They can be a distraction or run the risk of not working live.

Dedicated E-mails and HTML Guidelines

If you’ve got a message to get out, a dedicated email to our engaged audience of commercial marine industry professionals may be your answer. But in order to successfully reach your audience, you need to ensure that your email bypasses their spam filters. Follow these 5 tactics to transform your email from spam into a value-add that your prospects will appreciate reading. Note - all dedicated e-mails must be reserved at least three weeks in advance.

See HTML specifications

1

Catchy subject line. 

A subject line is your first, and often only, chance to grab your audience’s attention. 

2

Personalization. 

Personalizing your email will help garner the reader’s attention while sidestepping spam filters.

3

“Spammy” language.

Be creative with your email copy and avoid the kind of language that you would avoid as a reader.

4

Imagery.

Images should support your message, not be the message.

5

Call-to-action. 

Make it clear, to the point, and something the reader can’t miss.


Banner Advertisements

Digital advertising can be an easily executed tool. Create your ad, host it on WorkBoat.com, and watch the clicks come in from the highly trafficked news site. To get the most out of your digital advertising, keep these tips in mind.

1

Clear objective and CTA.

Have a specific goal that informs your creative and helps measure ROI. Include a single compelling CTA.

2

Choosing your URL.

Direct the viewer to a page that makes sense. If the goal is to generate leads, link to a landing page with a lead capture form.

3

Simple ad.

Keep your ad clear and concise with minimal text usage.

4

Creative.

Use colors and imagery to pique the audiences' interest.

5

Web/newsletter advertising combos.

Don’t risk missing part of your target audience by only advertising on one of the two.
