Adding Emoticons to Subject Line

Is it just me or is it impossible to add emoticons to Marketo subject lines? Seems to strip them out for me every time...

Yes, Pierce it is possible (and not just until you save the draft!). It'll be on my blog tomorrow. Pubbed just now: http://blog.teknkl.com/yes-you-can-use-emojis-in-marketo-subject-lines/

Hi Sanford Whiteman, this is a great blog post. I really like the Simple Q encoder you embedded and the reminder to test every combination of browser + mail client + provider + emoji character.

This is fantastic! Is it too late to send a blast with a Christmas tree in the subject line now?

Of course not! Ha "Christmas is over, back to work we go! *tree *sad face"

Sure, just keep it witty!

Maybe even "We just figured out how to use emojis, so..."

Hi Sanford,

I went to the site you provided but couldn't find the Q code emoji converter. Is it somewhere else?

Thanks,

Bonnie

Hey, just a heads up. I had used your encoder in the past and it worked brilliantly. I just tried to access it again and the generate button doesn't seem to be operating.
