In episode 63 of the Customers Who Click podcast, I had the pleasure of chatting to Corey Haines about swipe files.
If you don’t yet have a swipe file… You need to change it ASAP. If you see a decent landing page, you can save it for future reference. A great email campaign from your favourite brand? You guessed it - you can keep it for inspiration for later.
Every marketer needs a swipe file, a base of knowledge you can refer to when working on a campaign. Marketing can only be mastered by doing it - courses, guides and marketing degrees teach you certain things, but they don’t give you practical knowledge. Plus, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel for every landing page or email; instead, if you see something is working, save the idea, find out why it’s working and apply the principles to your business & customers.
