Like every year, we are reminded that there is not just Christmas and New Year to celebrate when the last fourth of the year is closing in. Halloween (and the fall season in general) is not only an excellent opportunity for you to send out another creative and ecstatically pleasing email. But also to engage your readers. As we mentioned before, in our seasonal e-mail-related articles, grasping every opportunity to celebrate with our audience is key to success. So sit down with your PSL, light up a pumpkin lantern, and deep dive into a trick-or-treat basket of Halloween (and fall) emailing with us.

Why Focus on Halloween Emailing?

Halloween is a holiday celebrated each year on October 31. The tradition originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain; All Saints Day incorporated some of those traditions. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, festive gatherings, donning costumes, and eating treats. (source: history.com)

Halloween might have just been seen as a quirk of some societies in the past. But it has become a global phenomenon with movies, music, fashion, and others inspiring it and being inspired by it. The season that celebrates everything spooky, fun, and crazy (frequently even sexy) is a great time to show that you have something to offer. And honestly, it is rarely as clear and straightforward to create a thematic template as it is the Halloween one. It is another excellent opportunity to show seasonal comradery to your audience. We are here to enjoy this celebration with you! You will remain in their memory, as they will connect your company with a particular time of celebration. It can help to grow your audience, convert them and retain them. Use it well.

4.TEXT

Text is essential. You can afford to use minimal text in highly thematic emails like Halloween ones while being straight to the point. Ideal for promotional emails and other low-text-email types. 

Focus on creative fonts, especially for your headlines. You can use bleeding fonts, stitched fonts, and other out-there fonts if you feel creative! Serif fonts and some calligraphy-style handwriting can be great for a victorian spooky castle ambiance. Scribbled handwriting can be great for a horror-like atmosphere. Clean, angular fonts can help to underline your mad-scientist theme!

You can also use tons of emojis: 💀🎃👻🧡😈🧟🪦⚰️🩸🕷️🕯️🫀🧛

Why Focus on Fall-Themed Emailing?

Fall is a season when the sun is slowly starting to leave us, and colors begin to change. It is getting darker and colder, and people may feel more drained. In this day and age, people are more stressed and tired than ever. But fall can also be a symbol of change, warmth, and coziness. We can help to evoke the positive side of fall in our audience by fall-izing our templates. Help the audience to feel at ease, wrap them in a blanket, surround them with the warm colors of autumn leaves and give them some pumpkin spice latte to warm them up. Fall is also a time of celebrations across Asia, full of lanterns, seasonal sweets, and warm colors. 

It is always helpful to associate your brand with warmth and coziness. If that is not your jam, it is always great to have another reason to reach out to your audience. Keep them in the loop. Remind them you are here. Be there for them, so they are there for you.
