Pay attention to the words and phrases that get the most attention in your industry. This means knowing who your audience is and what they’re looking for. Consumer products sell best when advertised through words such as “new”, while informational products sell better when combined with words like “advice”. Always be sure you know what your audience is looking for and word your copy accordingly.
Make it easy to unsubscribe. Make the unsubscribe link clearly visible in your email, allowing someone to stop getting email marketing. This way you are less likely to get reported for sending spam. Also, if someone has unsubscribed, don’t make the mistake of continuing to send them email: that is likely to cause them to complain.
Only send emails that contain useful information; customers will unsubscribe if you bombard them with useless messages. You want to impress them with something intelligent to say, not seem like a heartless being that just wants to suck money out of them. Try to illustrate ways a particular product can solve a problem, or perhaps implement some sort of promotion in the emails you send out.
Try using A/B testing for your email marketing campaign. This basically entails creating two very different versions of the same email (A and B) and sending “A” to half of a small test group and “B” to the other half. Whichever half receives the most positive response is the one that you should be using for your campaign.
Have a special birthday email for your subscribers. Make sure you put an field so your customers can share their birthday if they choose to! This easy step can make customers feel good, particularly if there’s a discount or promotion included with their greeting.
In conclusion, email marketing has become a favorable way to market a product, mainly due to the Internet’s popularity. Now you know the most important aspects of email marketing. By using these tips properly, you will not only become successful at email marketing, but you will find an increase in business.
