Email Brief & Planning Worksheet

Litmus Email Brief and Planning Worksheet

Every marketing email your brand sends should start with a plan. To get the results you want, your email needs to have a clear purpose and a sound strategy behind it. But, there can be any number of factors that knock your email off track—long before it hits the inbox. For example, it’s possible that your initial plan was solid but direction got kind of murky once it progressed through different hands, including writers, designers, and developers. Or, maybe stakeholders decided to change direction late in the game–causing your strategy to go out the window.

An email brief can serve as a guiding light that that eliminates these sorts of challenges, so everyone involved in your email campaigns stacks hands on strategy from the beginning, and stays the course.

Download our four-step email brief and planning worksheet to define your strategy, goals, purpose and approach. This handy little tool can help align the teams involved in your email workflow so you’re empowered to create an incredible subscriber experience, with every send.
