Newsletter email confirmation – NextCloud #JustAnExample

 

Nextcloud is an awesome solution to create and manage your own cloud – you should really check them out if you have never heard of them.

Here we have a quick look at the newsletter confirmation – an always challenging issue for open rate and engagement with your users. I found this one pretty good – so I have added to the #justAnExample collection

Why is it good?

  • It gets personal

It gets personnal real quick – which force you to care about that guy who is writing to you. I think it is an underrated way to communicate with your audience. Too often businesses are very impersonal and you never know the name of the person writing to you – including in the newsletter and that’s a shame. Not that it is right in every case – but I do think a lot more should be doing it – especially – but not only – SMBs.

  • Text!

No fancy graphics – just a plain text email – which I think sometime help convey better the information than an over crowded branded email with graphics all over the place.

 

So that’s it – just wanted to get this out there – and have it in the collection 🙂

 

#JustAnExample – Waiting screen – Mediatemple – UX

#JustAnExample is a series where I share some interesting UX / UI and smart copy for your inspiration (and my archive of references).

 

Media Temple is a web hosting company – at the high-end spectrum – I mean they are pretty good – both in service and in functionalities and options for hosting your site.

But… I just created a site on it the other day and they had a super cool UX trick for their waiting screen.

It’s basically a game you can play while your settings are being process, when initialising the site for the first time.

That’s just awesome!

#JustAnExample – Donation options – the canary

#JustAnExample is a series where I share some interesting UX / UI and smart copy for your inspiration (and my archive of references).

Asking for donations is never easy.

Well, the Canary found a nice way to phrase it.

 

Why is good?

  • It gives perspective
  • Make you realise that spend money more on dumb shit – so you might as well give them so of it

Side note: I didn’t give them any money. I didn’t even know this paper before I stumbled upon on an article that I can’t even remember what was the topic. Still, the copy used for their call-to-action is actually cool.
