Enabling your email marketing to become more efficient

As the adage goes, email marketing is still one of the most effective and arguably affordable ways to reach out to customers. Having a constant and steady email newsletter system in place also helps build brand credibility, and goes long ways to boost brand recognition, and of course increase sales. Here are some insights from Forbes.



Automate

In an industry dominated by tech, it's notable that 75% of marketers are using marketing automation tools. The results speak for themselves too, as custom automation workflows have the highest click-through rate at 17.27%. And according to HubSpot, the most effective tactics for optimising marketing automation are mapping the customer experience and personalised content. The big word there is personalisation.

AI is growing

And there are chatbots as concrete examples. AI, in essence, is the new kid on the block, and businesses are still on the nascent stage of using and applying AI in the enterprise. But AI has made leaps over the years, so expect more growth as technology keeps up.

Harness user-generated content

User-generated content, to put it bluntly, sparks conversations and helps promote trust as 82% of consumers find user reviews to be valuable. When we shop for a new laptop what do we do - we look for user-generated reviews right? All these user-generated content help sway our purchasing decisions because we see actual usage by an actual consumer who actually bought a product - not an artificial review made by its manufacturer.

Quality over quantity

Cliche, yes, but spraying and praying emails in hopes that they get read doesn't really work. About 281 billions emails are sent daily, with an open rate of 42%. This 42% shows that the email sent to them are accessible and often have personalised content, with email bodies that have streamlined content. Focus on sending emails which are well-written and with top-notch content rather than simply sending whatever you just wanna send out.

Email less

Yes - quality over quantity so this goes both ways: people prefer being emailed less frequently. In fact, it's advised to send email every two weeks. That gives you ample time to curate a good email.

    These are all very key points. What is your view on having video embedded in emails? Are they more effective than text or would it be better to just include links back to websites or youtube for example?

    Great post.
    One of the benefits of email marketing is that you build up a rapport with audience.
    Your subscribers will gain trust in you and you will become a friend who they will be happy to purchase from.
    A lot of the top marketers say that their list is the most important thing to them as it is their customer base.
