    Glad to see aWeber is starting to realize that people use their phones to read email. I asked tech support for some help or ideas when one of my subscribers could not view a picture on their phone.

    The only answer I got was the unhelpful “We don’t do phone support”.

    That was rather annoying.

    I have read about QR codes, but here I found really interesting the idea of making a QR code to send people to a sign up page. I also like the belief that it is better to let people be acclimated before showing them a call to action.
    Nonetheless, I am not sure whether all the readers are patient, and if keeping the call to action for later is not going to make a marketer lose some clicks.

    Ironically your email message looked really bad on my iPhone. (I use gmail via browser not normal apple mail app coz it has more functionality)

    The message was wide so I had to scroll across to read all of it. I’ll try screen shot it and share with you.

    A bit off topic BUT can you tell me if the email newsletter form this blog entry came out on is available as a template to your users? I’m having trouble finding a template I like with AWeber and the template you used to send this message our via email might just work for me. Is it available for our use?

    Mal ~ That is ironic. Thanks for sharing that shot.

    Tim ~ Sorry you got such a terse answer. Whether images show on a phone has to do with settings on that phone’s email application, so it makes sense that we wouldn’t be able to change that.

    Tikyd ~ Level of patience probably depends at least in part on your demographic, so you’ll want to test your call to action placement (at least a couple of times in each place to get steady results) to find your answer.

    Bridgett ~ Yes! We do have that template. :) It’s called Bigfoot, near the top of the template list in your message editor.

    I just got into advertising on cell phones. I have optimized pages. But I’m not having much luck building a list. Do you have any suggestions?

    Hoping to hear back from you

    Hi Amanda, I thought I was a decent HTML email coder (been doing this for 4 years now), until I landed a new job that sends out emails that are mainly graphics with fixed height. I’m not a fan of graphical and fixed height emails but this is how my employer wants to send their emails. I do a lot of slicing and dicing of PSD files. With that said, the email renders a bit differently on the iPhone. Somehow, it shows thin, horizontal lines. Have you heard anything like this before? I’ve tried: adding “display: block” to the image and “line-height: 0px” and “1 px” to TDs, and other “solutions” that I’ve read on the internet. Any thoughts?

    Should an email designer focus on designing for mobile or desktop email clients?

    I noticed that when I sent out broadcast, my emails look small texted when I see it from my Iphone.

    However, when I receive other peoples email they look perfect!

    I want to know if there is anything I can do that will make my broadcast look
    more compelling when read on Iphone?

    What do people do to make their emails look good for phones?
