A mail-able 'microsite' is an interactive email, which allows the user to interact with the email interface within the inbox. The adoption of this technique will help retain customers and give a more engaging approach to content. Interactive emails keep the inbox interesting and unique.

Interactive email can include things like forms or surveys that do not redirect to another page. GIFs, videos, and image in the email will make it appealing. The customer may want to share the information in the email with friends, relatives or on social media; therefore having buttons or icons that facilitate sharing is most desirable. Interactive email essentially hands your audience everything they need on a plate - with minimal effort for them. They do not need to divert out of the inbox to view content, interact with video or complete surveys - making it more likely they will interact due to less effort needed to complete a task.

The tone you chose to use in your emails affects the way your customers will respond. A conversational tone may not be the best tone to use across all sectors, but it does give a more personal and genuine interaction between the customer and brand. Whereas a more formal approach may be better for B2B sectors, asking questions and starting a conversation with your audience is important for engagement. It will feel more personal show that the content you have produced has had them in mind, feeding their needs for answers, content, products etc.
