The fact is personalization works. Don’t be one of those companies that is not living up to their customers expectations when it comes to being more personal. This can be as simple as including the recipient’s first name in the subject line, or contacting people on occasions such as their birthday. In addition, be sure to email from a person and not a business because this will ensure a name is clear to the recipient when it appears on their inbox.
Write a catchy subject line
The subject line is the first thing the recipient reads when they see your email. You want to make sure it’s relevant and attention grabbing. You can grab attention with: personalization, emojis, humor, hinting, and cliffhangers. This is where you hint at the content you’re promoting within the email. With creative subject lines, the open rate tends to be higher.
Include relevant links
We advise you to include relevant and specific links in your email. This will lead your subscribers to new and updated content that you’re promoting. You don’t want to repeat the same routine for every email. You can also include social media handles, so people can find your brand easily online. Although, you only want to include the platforms you are active on to make sure the content is up-to-date, and you are responsive.
You can include interactivity in your email by inviting people to swipe, click, tap or watch. You can also include videos and gifs. More consumers are showing interest in gifs and live videos.
Audit and clean your email lists
It’s important to look at your database and clean it up. Make sure you have permission to use every email address you have on your lists. If someone has unsubscribed, make sure to take them off any active lists. If you have some inactive email subscribers, reach out to them to try and re-engage and offer to remove them if it’s no longer relevant. It’s better to have a smaller database of interested prospects than a lot of uninterested people.
Have a good UI and UX
You want to include user experience and user interface within your email campaigns because the goal at the end of the day is to engage your audience. This means to include simple CTA and clear design formats. Consistency is crucial. You could also optimize for mobile to ensure that any touchpoint is mobile-friendly.
