Summary:This study examines how to design a newsletter to get the subscribers attention, how the presentation of a newsletter can affect time to action, and other ways design can change the effectiveness of email newsletters.

Methodology:This was an 18-month study on more than 1400 newsletter marketers.

Key Findings: The Information Portal -- where people read your messages -- has the biggest impact (36.7%) on whether they take the action you desire.

Without question, fewer action items bring better results. One-action emails received 55.9% clickthroughs, soundly beating two-action emails, while newsletters with three, four or five action items were all under 5%.
