As an email messaging strategist, I’m always interested in seeing how local restaurants are trying to connect with customers through email messaging. Pizza Antica in Lafayette, California, encourages customers to leave their email addresses when they pay the check. Their weekly email (usually sent on Fridays) always catches my eye with an unusual black and white design, a stylish font, and stencil graphics. This is a great example of an organization trying to express its style and brand with creative email messaging. Is it time to rethink your email messaging?
