Email marketing is dead!
Or is it?
From the past few years, this illusion has haunted the marketing world. But recent statistics showcase some other reality. 225.3 billion emails will be sent every day in 2017, a whopping 5% increase from the previous year.
The reason – 72% of consumers consider emails as the best brand communication channel. Yep! This elementary mode of ‘Get in touch’ is proving to be an evergreen weapon for brand awareness.
Let’s learn how to write the pitch perfect emails and conquer your customer’s undivided attention.
8 seconds is all you have to prevent your user from bouncing back, it is necessary for your mailshot to be as tempting as possible. Although experts think that email marketing is of no use but the reality is they fail to create an appropriate mix of content to personally target their subscribers.
To add the “WOW” factor to your emails, you first need to know the “W-H-W” of email marketing:
Along with the above parameters, you need to understand your target audience because irrelevant content to your user is like cold murdering your marketing strategy.
To make things more clear, here are the 4 evergreen email marketing tips that will help strengthen your customer bond, forever!
“To manage a system effectively, you might focus on the interactions of the parts rather than their behavior taken separately” –
Russell L. Ackoff
Preach by these words if you want your email marketing strategy to hit the bull’s eye. Animated GIFs, videos, images and menus will help you create an interactive email base and boost your click through rate (CTR).
Kate Spade used the same game plan when they introduced their new “Joanie” handbag collection. Their newsletters were twitched with color changing GIFs along with bright font which changes according to the model.
Not only it helped Kate Spade introduce their new line to their customers but also skyrocketed the sales.
Stuffing your email with a footlong content will help you get more up and close with your users, right?
Well, the answer is a no… with a capital N!
Recent researches have shown that 20 or fewer lines of text with three or fewer images results in the most number of CTR per email.
Taking a cue from the above, try and keep your email’s body succinct, concise yet powerful headlines and a few images – just like Reebok did!
Did you know that 18x more revenue is generated from personalized emails than the broadcasted ones!
So, why don’t you build one? No need to sweat it out. It’s easy!
All you require is a personalized sign up form for users’ details – age, name, job title, gender and utilize this database to create customized emails for them. And the reward – 41% higher CTR and 6X higher transaction rates.
Another thing that helps grab user attention and amplify your conversion rate is the right use of a call-to-action (CTA). Emails containing even a single CTA can boost your clicks and sales by 371% and 1617%, respectively.
But how can you analyze the best position for CTA? Bring in A/B split testing! It will not only help optimize your CTA but may also help you transform the traffic into qualified leads.
Even though the changing customer attitude is transforming the marketing landscape, but these tips have stood the test of time. They have proved to be the morse code to an evergreen email marketing paradox and can help you expand your subscribers and customer base.
Planning to start your own email marketing campaign? 42Works is always here to help!
Anmol and his content developers were able to provide me with a keyword rich set of blog posts for a project I had. I requested 3 original blog posts for use on a campaign and got them quickly but without sacrificing quality. Every time I think Anmol and his team have exhausted what they can offer me I am always happy to find out that they are a one stop shop and can deliver almost any internet project both quickly and cost effectively.
Working with 42Works has been an experience I am not familiar with. In 42works, I found an attentive, eager to do right for the right reasons, and responsible consultant. 42works made many suggestions that made for a better project overall. I would say I am lucky to have found them, but the truth is I am fortunate. Their communication skills are superb, their dedication unmatched, and their personality made me look forward to working with them.
Excellent service all round. Took time to understand the requirements of the job – suggested good improvements and then set about providing a first class service. Very responsive, quick turnaround and the end result was exactly what we wanted. Would definitely use again and thoroughly recommend to anyone else.Very fast, quick replies, good communication. This job required a lot of small details and they always came through with a solution. I hope to work with 42Works for the long term.
The thing that I liked the most about 42works was their customer interaction chats. They are very comfortable in explaining complex tasks. I have thrown the kitchen sink at them time to time and they have bounced successfully every single time. I am yet to see a crisis which they couldn’t resolve. I fully recommend their services.
The best thing about the Anmol & 42 works team is that they know what I want and need before I even do. I am astonished at how smart, professional and easily available their services are. Had I known them about 5 years ago I’d have saved a lot of wasted efforts on projects. No one is like Anmol. In a world of imitators he is the real deal!
This was a challenging job for a challenging client and 42works came through with flying colors. They were able to resolve a few issues that my other programmers struggled mightily with and I would hire them again in a heart beat.
