We are a financial marketing services company, offering marketing, tools, and industry specific news to financial advisors and financial professionals.
More info can be found at http://www.usa-financial.com/index_main.php
Our company is USA Financial, however, this "sister entity" is called PlugNRun.
Financial professionals and financial advisors. Typically middle-aged audience, professional audience.
We're looking for creativity here. We do have some ideas of what you could try to accomplish, but we are open to new ideas.
Here's what we're looking for:
A CODED (HTML) e-mail newsletter template. It should meat standards for e-mail templates (no to exceed 550 pixels wide). We want to have a nice header (with our PlugNRun Logo). The logo can be found at our website at http://www.usa-financial.com. We would like just the "PlugNRun" man pulled from there, and not the USA Financial Text.
Color is important here. We want the colors to match the color scheme of our website (see attachment #1). Also, we need to have our standard footer in this e-mail. See attachment #2. This footer should be re-created/revamped to match the color scheme of attachment #1 (our website) and included in the e-mail template.
On the header, we would like it to say "Plug-N-Run Newsbreak". We'd like to have a column on the left side of the template that has room for ads, links, etc.
I have attached a mockup of the layout we were envisioning. This is concept only - we're open to pretty much anything. You can access the mockup at: http://www.usa-financial.com/mockup99.pdf
Again, we're looking for creativity and your ideas. Also, please be sure to make it clear in your submission if you are UNABLE to code the template. This is very important to us (that we know).
