At Jay Baer's Convince & Convert, I found Emailium in his post "Eureka! A Free Search Engine That Will Juice Your Email Marketing."
What is it?
Emailium is a free (for now) search engine of top emails from the leading retailers and other major senders of digital communication.
Considering that just about every company of every size sends email to its customers, this post probably applies to you.
- Do you need design inspiration? Ideas for how to make your emails look snappier, with more compelling layouts?
- Do you want to keep tabs on your competitors? What emails they are sending, and when?
- Do you want to monitor the email behavior of an industry? To determine what trends exist in marketing, offers, timing, and sequencing of emails?
If any of those appeal to you, I recommend you check out Emailium.
For a basic description, read the rest of Jay's post.
What Does Emailium Do for Professional Service Firms?
I poked around Emailium for a bit. For the majority of professional service firms, the most immediate benefit is inspiration for email design and layout.
Many of us won't find our direct competitors here and the industry search categories listed are a bit to broad for us. However, a bit of study of campaign timing and layout can be useful for us.
Check it out and see if it might be helpful for you.
