Images Blocked Email of the Month: April 2012

images blocked email screenshotNo, this is unfortunately not an April Fool’s joke. Hate to do this to you, Diesel. But you leave me no choice (see screenshot).

When I loaded the images, there was a giant, red “Shop Now!” call to action button that could’ve been given a decent ‘images blocked’ treatment.

To quote last month’s post:

Email marketers: Assume that your emails will be viewed with images blocked. Test your emails with images blocked. Put yourself in the recipients shoes, with images blocked, and ask: What’s in it for me?

Have some more atrocious/humorous examples? Email them to me at, and maybe I’ll put them in my ongoing “wall of shame”!
