What we did:
New Creative Approach
Airbnb is an online marketplace that enables people to list, find, and rent private lodging spaces for a small processing fee. It has over 1,500,000 listings in 34,000 cities and 191 countries.
Airbnb needed more guests to become hosts, and establish a global look for their email communications. However, previous Airbnb email campaigns lacked a consistent brand look, and overall engagement with email communications was low.
The project involved finding new ways to communicate the benefits of hosting in a clear, simple, and motivating way, while redefining the email’s creative layout to improve engagement—all in just one email.
Trendline stepped in to develop a new creative approach to Airbnb’s email. This strategy included a responsive layout that progressively enhanced with a full width background using CSS animation to grab subscriber interest. After a successful test performance, the redesign’s layout would be applied to the rest of Airbnb’s email communications.
