Email Marketing not working?

Hey.

I've made around 800 subscribers and did a broadcast with a link in them and it really didn't bring any results.. I'm in the relationship niche. Any person in this niche willing to give me few tips or topics which work?

    Where did you build that list from? In your broadcast, do you have images, files, or anything that could lead to spam folder?

  • Maybe it's time to try another strategy. One way of making your content catchy for your subscribers is to use good email titles that will attract their curiosity. Another is try writing your email series into a "journey or narration" type of content, so that your subscribers can relate.

    If your old strategies don't work, maybe it's good to try newer ones. Change your content and see which one works better.

    First thing you want to work on is the subject line. Does it entice the reader to actually click on it to open the email?

    Does the subject line relate to the original reason they joined the list?

    Does the subject line scream; hey I am just trying to sell you stuff?

    Once you have a good open rate, then you focus on the the body content of the email and call to action.

    "didn't bring any results" means?

    You didn't get a good open rate? You didn't make any sales?

    You can't just start mailing offers without creating a relationship with your list prior to that.

      Had the exactly same thought. If you give us more background info, there'll be more chances for a useful idea.

    Due to several reasons...

    First, take a look at your open rates. If your open rates is terrible, maybe you need to work on your subject line.

    can you give an insight on what was the open and click rate?
    If the open rate was high, and you did not get any clicks, its time you work on the email body.

  • Create a good content. Put some mystery with your content that would make them curious and lead them to check your site.

    This is how I like to do it.

    Create a video giving them value. Answer a question they might have. Tell them about common mistakes people might make.

    Send one or two emails like that.

    After that, send an email promoting something AND give away a bonus for purchasing through you.

    You should be able to make money with it now

    Change niche. Relationship niches don't convert well. Try other niche. Make your email enticing like giving a trivia, a success story or a giveaway and use call to action text for your affiliate links.

  • First you need to make your subject line eye-catching and after that improve email content. See if it works.

    Sometimes gmail take all your mail you send to subscribers and put in spam folder... check if the open users are not gmail users, if it is, so it mean that your mail go to spam folder of gmail users.

    I suggest that at this time you need to learn how email marketing works. Do not listen to people telling you that you just need send mass emails and make thousands tommorow.

    I bet you'll find a lot of people doing exactly that. It is not worth it. You should target niche and Country wise email marketing.
