A well-organized e-mail marketing campaign can be a key driver of prosperity for your business. By following a few key recommendations, you can launch a stellar e-mail marketing initiative to keep your customers engaged and interested in your latest company news. Below are five e-mail marketing tips to help you grab and maintain your audience’s attention.
1) Craft a captivating subject line. Capture your reader’s attention right away by crafting an intriguing subject line. You can increase your open rate by choosing an intriguing question as a subject line or including a quick reference to a specific benefit your audience will enjoy by reading your e-mail.
2) Give your audience a reason to keep reading. Once your readers have decided to open your e-mail, you need to keep them engaged and interested in the content. Keep your message succinct and make sure your content is organized. Highlight one or two key points to keep readers focused.
3) Personalize your content as much as possible. Addressing customers by name and sending e-mails that correspond to their specific needs are two ways to personalize e-mails. You can learn about your customers’ preferences by surveying them and tailoring e-mail content accordingly.
4) Less is more when it comes to frequency. Sending e-mails to your customers can cause them to become disengaged or issue complaints. Even worse, your customers may decide to unsubscribe to your mailing list. While frequency rates will vary according to industry, a frequency rate of once or twice per month produces desirable results.
5) Include content that is useful or helpful to your target audience. Helpful content achieves two key goals. First, it establishes you as a trusted resource within your industry. Second, your readers will be more apt to open e-mails if they know that the content will be beneficial.
In addition to following these tips, make sure that you periodically evaluate your e-mail campaigns to identify opportunities for improvement.
