Swimming with success: a responsive animated email drives engagement for Dish's Shark Week promotion


Dish Network, a leading satellite television provider, sought to heighten excitement for Shark Week among their subscribers. Their traditional email marketing approach lacked the necessary punch to stand out in crowded inboxes and effectively promote their Shark Week programming.


We implemented a data-driven email marketing campaign to capture subscriber attention:
  • Responsive Email Design: We designed a responsive HTML email template specifically for Dish’s Shark Week promotion. This ensured the email displayed flawlessly across desktops, tablets, and smartphones, maximizing reach and user experience.
  • Eye-Catching Animated GIF: The centerpiece of the email was a captivating, responsive animated GIF. This animation showcased thrilling shark footage or humorous Shark Week content, grabbing subscriber attention and setting the tone for the email’s message.
  • Targeted Shark Week Content: The email content effectively communicated Dish’s Shark Week programming highlights. This could include channel listings, exclusive content offers, or interactive elements like polls or quizzes related to sharks.
  • Clear Call to Action (CTA): A prominent CTA button encouraged subscribers to tune in to Shark Week on Dish, ensuring a seamless transition from email engagement to program viewership.


The responsive email campaign with an animated GIF for Dish’s Shark Week promotion delivered impressive results:
  • Increased Open Rates: The engaging animated GIF and a well-crafted subject line enticed subscribers to open the email, significantly boosting open rates.
  • Improved Click-Through Rates (CTRs): The captivating visuals and clear CTA led to a notable increase in click-through rates, driving subscribers towards Dish’s Shark Week programming guide or designated channel.
  • Enhanced Brand Perception: The creative use of animation and targeted content reflected positively on Dish’s brand image, showcasing their commitment to providing subscribers with entertaining and engaging content.

What We Solved?

This project addressed Dish’s need for:
  • Stand-Out Email Marketing: The responsive email design and the inclusion of a compelling animated GIF ensured Dish’s Shark Week promotion cut through the noise in subscribers’ inboxes.
  • Increased Viewership for Shark Week: The targeted content and clear CTA effectively directed subscribers towards Dish’s Shark Week programming, maximizing viewership and engagement.
  • Measurable Campaign Performance: Email analytics tools allowed Dish to track open rates, click-through rates, and other metrics to gauge campaign effectiveness and optimize future email marketing efforts.
By implementing a responsive email campaign with a captivating animated GIF, targeted content, and a clear call to action, we empowered Dish to generate excitement for Shark Week among their subscribers, drive program viewership, and ultimately strengthen their position as a provider of high-quality entertainment options.
