Mobile emails and responsive design
Internet usage has largely shifted to mobile devices. 53% of emails are read on mobile devices. Having a responsive design and making your emails compatible with a variety of devices will go on to increase your effectiveness. If you are using a newsletter design, make sure it is mobile-friendly.
Subscribe to your own newsletter every now and then to ensure that the whole process is easy and fun for your users. If you find any loopholes, correct them. Be brief and relevant, promote but don’t overdo it. Follow a central theme for your email.
Ease of use also includes making unsubscribing easy. Give your customers an option to choose whether they want to read your newsletter or not. Also, try to send emails only to your subscribers!
Emails have a high conversion rate. You are 6 times more likely to get a click on an email than a tweet. Also, you are 40 times more likely to get customers than from a post on Facebook or Twitter. There are certain metrics that help you monitor your email campaigns.
List growth – Monitoring if you get new subscribers or if users are unsubscribing to your emails is a huge indicator of the content you are sending and how it is being received. You have to be patient but this number can help you optimize your email marketing campaigns.
Conversions – Knowing how many subscribers actually turn into customers is also a great way of optimizing your mail campaigns
ROI – Return on Investment. You can measure this by keeping an eye on conversions. Knowing how much you invest in sending out an email newsletter against acquiring a new subscriber or a new customer gives you your ROI.
Click-through rate – CTR is knowing how many clicks you get and from what demographic are you getting the most response. You can determine the best time and audience based on where your emails are getting the most traction from.
Segmenting your audience based on their behavior or geography is another helpful way to send the right and personalized content. It also makes sending targeted transactional emails more effective.
The right timing and the right audience
Got a new subscriber? Don’t wait up, send a welcome email immediately. It shows your excitement and willingness to serve the user. Setting up an automated email campaign can help you take care of things like this. 58% of companies use automation software to send out their email campaigns. Just made a sale? Send a thank you mail to your customer and offer them some discount on the next purchase – Yes, a transactional mail will do wonders for you.
It’s about getting the timing right. Do you know Saturday has the highest click-through rate (CTR) and so does 6 AM? The right timing can differ based on your audience. Targeting home-makers? The afternoon in the middle of the week may be the best time to reach out to them. You have to find the right permutation and combination of timings to get the maximum CTR and customer leads.
Run shorter campaigns and monitor the results of each campaign. Try different things in different campaigns to give a variety of options to your customers and get to know them better.
