Email marketing should involve more than just persuasive copy and pretty pictures (although, those are pretty important too); it should also involve planning and measuring your results, along with a clear message and action for your audience. Try thinking about the following tips to get you started:

What response are you looking for?

  • In other words, what are you hoping to achieve from this campaign?
  • Give your subscribers something to do. If you don’t know what to do, then how are your subscribers supposed to know?

What’s the big idea?

  • Make it clear what the benefits are for your subscribers. The more unique the opportunity is, the more likely they’ll listen.
  • Let them know EVERYTHING they can expect from your product/services.

Call to Action

  • Probably the most important!! And something that we at Copper Bay can’t stress enough. Make it easy for your subscribers to ‘do’ something. Whether that’s
    • Call
    • Email
    • Buy
    • Browse
    • Read
    • … the list goes on.
  • Always test this to make sure it works too.

Write a great subject line

  • The best emails normally entice people with curiosity to their emails. Obviously this also involves making the subject line relevant to the email.
  • The more enticing the better.

Be personal

  • Try and make the email as personal as possible. People like to feel special and it’s no different talking to your subscribers.
