Although email marketing is not a brand new strategy, it is still a powerful and often overlooked tool for building and retaining your customer base. Although reaching out to individuals through email has been happening since the beginning of the Internet, it still has a lot of life left in it. Marketers are always reinventing and rethinking ways to make email marketing new, exciting, and even more effective. Keep reading to find out how you can design a successful email marketing campaign.
If you wish to start email marketing, make sure you have the permission of your recipients to send them messages. If you don’t have permission, be prepared to not only receive spam complaints but also to lose customers.
Avoid spammy sales techniques, such as urgent messages that they need to “Buy now!” Stay away from harsh sales techniques such as bombarding them with the need to immediately “Buy Now!” An approach such as this one is often perceived as being “spammy”, meaning your consumers will quickly unsubscribe. Instead, build a relationship with your customers and stay professional. Your customers will be thankful for this, and there’s a good chance they’ll make a purchase.
Anything that you email you should proofread first. The content of your emails, from subject to footer, must be typo-free and properly written. Test the email layout in multiple email clients and browsers to make certain that the email design is being delivered in the way you desire. If you have put any links in your emails, make sure they are able to be clicked.
Keep track of the subject lines on e-mails that get opened and those that do not. For a single email, split your mailing list in half randomly, with each half receiving messages that have different subjects. This strategy will show which subjects customers open, and which get ignored and sent to trash.
The more you allow your customers to customize their experiences, the better your campaign will be. Customers should be able to select the frequency with which they receive messages and what personal information they want to disclose to the business. The more choices customers have, the more they will see the business relationship as equal and mutually beneficial.
Having a easy-to-see link to unsubscribe is a good idea. Don’t fail to provide an unsubscribe link and don’t bury it so deep in the text that it cannot be found. You never want your readers to feel as if they don’t have a choice in receiving your emails.
Provide an incentive for customers in your emails. People will buy something from you if you provide them with a reason to do so. You could give them free shipping if they follow the link in the newsletter and buy more than worth of your products.
As you can tell, the good old marketing email is still an effective tool for your business. If you take this article’s advice into consideration and stay on the lookout for more ways to innovate and improve your email marketing efforts, there is no reason the strategy can’t continue to serve you admirably for years and years.
