Growth Hack #1 – The Simplest Way to Improve the Accessibility of Your Emails:
If your designer insists on creating one giant image for your email, tell them you risk antagonizing readers.
Image-only emails are slower to load, harder to search for, and are often blocked by firewalls, spam filters, and privacy blockers. They’re also completely inaccessible for voice assistants, and non-native speakers can’t translate text when it’s embedded in images.
Remember: Being accessible is not just socially good; it also means a bigger audience for your business!
