With the shift to all-digital television and the Super Bowl coming up, January is huge for TV manufacturers, and Samsung builds credibility in their latest email by highlighting awards and customer reviews!

This email announces their huge award winnings at CES – very timely, impressive news. They also highlighted this month’s top reviewed product, their 650 LCD HDTV, which received five out of five stars from Samsung customers. While each piece of information is important, together this information packs a powerful one-two punch: industry credibility and consumer confidence via authentic word of mouth.

And to keep customers engaged, Samsung’s new contest enables those who post reviews to win an HDTV of their own.

This is the first time Samsung has used customer reviews in emails, but I bet it won’t be the last!
