The success of email marketing quotes
Email marketing quotes or any kind of short content does well on the web. The do especially well on social media. Quotes are short enough to tweet, share and snack. A bite of content with just enough information to convey a message. There is a lesson to be learned there. Not every post article or blog has to be long-copy or very elaborate.
Effectively using long copy
If you want it to be “the ultimate post about X”, yes, you have to make it long. Because an ultimate post about X gives you a lot to say.
Search engines also like long, informative copy. Lots of words makes them easily crawl and easily identify what your article is about. And if it is exceptional content, it will also be shared. My ultimate list with all mobile email statistics is pretty popular. The thing with long copy is that not everybody will read it completely, but people will scan. That makes your headlines extra important.
But if you are going for the share, quick top-of-mind message, shorter IS sweeter. And more visually is also sweeter. Pretty sweet.
