  • Get a surge in email engagement.
  • Harness the power of interactive demos to elevate email content.
  • Tackle the age-old problem of dwindling email click-through rates.


We all know the feeling. The excitement of crafting that perfect email, sending it off, and... the inevitable deflation when the click-through rates are less than stellar. Marketing emails can often become routine and, let's face it, a bit stale. But what if there was a way to add a little spark? Recent data suggests that including interactive content can boost click-through rates significantly. Indeed, including that type of content allows marketers to get 82% higher engagement with interactive emails (source: HubSpot). Further, the average user's attention span is less than 8 seconds (source: Havard Business Review). With such fleeting attention, marketers need an edge. Let's deep dive in this problem and what solutions to choose.

The problem

Low engagement drains your email campaign's potential.

Traditional email campaigns, laden with plain text and static images, often fail to capture the user's attention, leading to lost potential conversions. Challenges of conventional emails involve competing with dozens of other emails, monotonous designs, and failing to provide real-time, engaging content.

Let me share you my own experience. I recently received an email showcasing a new software feature. It had lengthy descriptions, but no hands-on interaction. By the end, I barely remembered the feature's name, let alone its functionalities.

This lack of engagement is more than a missed opportunity; it's a lost customer.

The solution

Your answer is interactive demos.

Interactive product demos are dynamic, hands-on visual presentations that allow users to get a tangible feel of the product. For marketers, this means letting potential customers or clients 'try before they buy', right within the email. Imagine an email campaign for a new software update where users can interact with the new features directly in the email.

The benefits

  • Redefine user engagement: interactive demos in emails let users engage with your content, not just read it. They get a firsthand experience, which often translates to increased trust and intrigue.
  • Elevate your content's value: instead of mere descriptions, you're offering experiences. This added value can differentiate your emails from others.
  • Boosted click-through rates: users are more likely to click through when they've already interacted with a piece of content. It's a natural next step in their journey.

Given these transformative advantages, isn't it time you adopted interactive product demos?
