In the digital age, connecting with your audience has never been easier and despite this, there is increasing competition and new technology to learn. Learning how to effectively reach your audience via email and is crucial to getting noticed in the modern era. With people checking their email numerous times a day, mastering this approach can help your business soar to new heights and land you an audience you would’ve never been able to reach before and it’s often cheaper than traditional advertising. Here are three key things to remember as you begin to market your business using email.
Subject Lines Matter
This is perhaps the most important. First impressions are everything and this is will be the first thing your potential consumers will notice. It’s important to have something that is attention grabbing without being perceived as spam or irrelevant. If you fail to grab their attention with your subject, there is no quicker way to get your email deleted or forgotten about. It is also important to keep it simple and keep it clean. Anything that is too complex, long, or filled with nonsense earns a one way trip to the trash can.
Highly Targeted Messages
The beauty of the internet is that you get to decide who sees what. With a television ad, it just happens to be whoever is watching and it may or not be your ideal audience. Email however gives the power to divide by greater categories which gives you the ability to specify even more. By understanding your target audience and understanding their goals, you can effectively communicate how what you are offering will help them. This specificity is where you will really grab a potential person’s attention and help your business grow. Use keywords, cater to their goals, and speak to them directly and they will have to be interested.
Trust and Knowledge
Simply knowing your audience isn’t enough however. They need to know you! They need to be able to rely on you and trust that you are an expert in your subject. If they aren’t convinced that you know what you’re doing, they’ll never stick around. Once again though, keeping it simple is the name of the game. You don’t want to bog down your email with technical details and credentials that over complicate things. You want to convey your knowledge as efficiently as possible and let the rest do the talking. When they come around after being interested, that is when you can start bringing in the more complicated details.
