Creative and Content Inspiration

Signing up for dozens of email campaigns to see what other marketers are sending is time consuming, inbox bursting, and gives you an incomplete look into their email program. Researching campaigns online is tedious, requiring you to rely on emails that other marketers thought were interesting. No matter which tactics you use to gather creative inspiration, they can be unproductive and do not provide data on how the email performed with actual subscribers.

Whether you are looking to revamp your current email template, a weekly email newsletter, or want to start a brand new winback campaign, you’re likely going to need some help getting your wheels turning.


With access to our Browse Campaigns feature, you get an easily searchable repository of millions of email messages to utilize for creative and content inspiration. This also includes:


Performance metrics on how the campaigns actually performed with real subscribers.


Campaign inspiration across subject lines, industries, and campaign types that you can save or download for easy reference.


Campaign information such as the date the campaign was sent, the company name, their from domain, inbox/spam placement, and more.

These insights help you construct the perfect email and give you confidence to try something new to boost email program success.
