People say marketing is easy; I say marketing tests one’s limits.
To all the marketers out there, I have mad respect for you — marketing is complex, exhilarating, and challenging.
This does not mean you can’t have a good laugh once in a while.
That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the most relatable, funny email memes to brighten up your day!
Let’s dive right in.
11 Evergreen Email Memes To Kickstart Your Day
Time to get off your email inbox and enjoy these fun email memes that will make you laugh your head off 🤣
Here we go.
#1. I hope this email finds you well…
Every other day in the life of an email marketer starts with the line: “I hope this email finds you well!”
Sometimes, this cliche irks us so much that many marketers have turned it into funny email memes.
Be it the morning blues or a tough day at work, this is an accurate depiction of how the email found us 😅
#2. When someone says, “Email marketing is dead”
2000: Email marketing is dead!
2010: Email marketing is surely dead!
2020: Guess what? Email marketing is immortal and here to stay.
In fact, 37% of brands have increased their email budget in 2022 and the email marketing revenue is projected to reach 11 billion by the end of 2023.
Do you think email marketing is dead?
Well, try leveraging some email marketing tactics from billion-dollar companies and you’ll find the answer.
#3. When the coupon code trick doesn’t work …
Email marketing works, but sending monotonous, salesy crap over and over again won’t do any good.
And, there are multiple drawbacks to sending the same promotional emails over and over again:
- Gmail can push your email either to the ‘spam’ folder or to the ‘promotional’ tab.
- Your recipients might ignore all your emails as they might consider them just promotional emails.
- Gmail can even ban your email address.
Instead, you should try to understand the audience and create content that is engaging and useful to them.
#4. The email attachment meme
Admit it! We have all been here more than once.
I know I have! So many times…
Imagine a perfectly crafted email with an enticing subject line and you hit the ‘Send’ button in excitement.
You forgot to attach the most important part of the email; your attachment. Well, sending your email without the mentioned attached file is almost the same as an airplane taking off without its passengers.
You can save yourself from embarrassment by sending the attached file with this email meme.
If the person on the other side has a knack for humor — it’ll be worth it 😜
#5. The subtle art of ignoring emails
We’ve all done it … not opening our boss’ or coworker’s email and pretending that we didn’t see it!
Beware, some companies use email tracking tools that show exactly when you’ve opened an email (and how many times).
#6. When you get no response after sending an email
Imagine this: You have spent hours creating and testing your email, and the time comes when you finally send your cold email.
The result – You get no response from the receiver.
That’s when the anxiety hits hard and you have the exact question in your mind, “Are they busy or just ignoring me?”
Don’t lose hope, my friend!
Revise your email marketing strategy and take inspiration from the best email marketers.
#7. When you write a cold email …
Writing a cold email is the same as writing your bio on an online dating platform. You need wit and a clear purpose for sending your email.
While writing a cold email, you should consider a few questions, like:
- Is the email free from errors?
- Is it appropriately personalized?
- Is the main topic covered succinctly?
And what not?
This email meme perfectly illustrates this scenario: You think and think and think, and then craft the perfect text to send it to your crush. You hit the send button and wait with bated breath for a reply.
Then comes the ‘ping’ — the sound you’ve been waiting for!
All marketers face the same scenario. They spend a lot of time and resources crafting the perfect cold email, and seeing a response in the inbox just hits differently.
Trust me, it’s no less than the climax of an action-packed movie.
#8: Spam, Spam everywhere
We all have a love-hate relationship with emails. While some emails are a treat to read, some pesky emails deserve to be ‘yeeted’ into your spam box.
Around 62.46 billion spam emails are sent and I’m sure your inbox must have hundreds, if not thousands of them.
But you know what’s worse: some really good or important emails get lost in the labyrinth of spam emails.
#9: When you want to turn back time
We all know that sinking feeling: you check each line of your email twice, maybe thrice, and then hit Send.
Only to discover that you’ve made a silly spelling mistake.
But there’s no Undo button — that ship has sailed.
According to research, Mondays are when emails are most error-prone.
So, the next time you write an email, make sure to use a grammar checker tool to clean up any errors (especially on Mondays😎) and boost your email open rates.
#10: You know it’s time to celebrate when …
Email marketers, you know it’s time to celebrate when your email campaign gets a swell open rate.
Higher email open rates make us marketers go wild like teenagers on spring break.
After all, you have put so much effort into designing a perfect template and writing an engaging subject line.
A great email open rate surely calls for some celebration 🎉
The average email open rates for all industries were estimated to be around 21.5%.
When you do better than that, you know your email campaign is on the right track.
#11: Me shooting off emails soon as I’m back from my PTO
How can we forget this viral “You Get a Car” Oprah meme?
You open your inbox after a weekend or a long vacation and you get hit by a myriad of messages.
It’s time to get that cup of joe and wait for the caffeine to kick in.
Then, shoot off emails to everyone … you get an email, and you get an email … everyone gets an email!
I hope these email marketing memes added some joy to your hectic day at work.
