Divide your email list into segments based on factors like demographics, behavior, or purchase history. Sending targeted content to specific segments can increase relevance and engagement. You can create welcome automated emails for new subscribers, or reminders for empty carts or past clients. You have many options for automation in emails as well as customization.
Responsive Design & Engaging Visuals
Ensuring that your emails are mobile-friendly is vital to your success. A huge percentage of every email is viewed, opened, and scrolled through on a mobile app or webpage. You also need to ensure you are displaying properly on various devices. A responsive design makes it easier for subscribers to engage with your content.
Using eye-catching visuals, such as images, videos, and infographics, breaks up text and makes your emails more visually appealing. This also makes it easier for readers to scan the text and still retain the important information. Most online readers scan through without reading every word, so if your text is not broken up and visually appealing, your readers are probably not going to read your email.
Clear Call to Action (CTA)
Including a clear and compelling call to action in your emails is a necessity. Whether it's to read a blog post, make a purchase, or sign up for an event, the CTA should be prominent and easy to follow for all readers.
Timing & Frequency
Experiment with the timing and frequency of your email campaigns. Find the optimal times to send emails based on your audience's behavior and preferences. You can do this by viewing when people are opening emails and how long they are spending on them. Many studies have been done on when is the best time to send emails, and most agree that Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are the best days to send emails.
Engage Subscribers Beyond Promotions
Don't limit your emails to promotions and sales. Send content that educates, entertains, and adds value to your subscribers' lives. You want to ensure you are reaching out to them beyond sales tactics.
Monitor Your Analytics
Regularly analyze the performance of your email campaigns using metrics like open rates, click-through rates, conversion rates, and unsubscribe rates. Use this data to make improvements. You do not want to invest time or money into emails that are not reaching your targeted audience.
