But this is especially important when targeting mobile internet users, as these users are least likely to go through lengthy articles. Short, simple and to-the-point emails work best on mobiles.

Avoid Images

You need to test all the aspects of delivery and display on different devices. You not only need to test innumerable devices, but also the effects of different email clients and addresses on your emails.

Email marketing is an essential part of internet marketing. Ensuring that your emails are mobile friendly can increase your reach many fold.
