When it Comes to Inboxes, Marketers Have to Jump Extra High to Stand Out
Marketers love to hate on email campaigns. And, while inboxes are a saturated environment that many of us would prefer to steer away from, they remain a highly valuable channel because they are ubiquitous and often lead to immediate conversions. So how can you ensure that your e-mail marketing stands a cut above the competition? I’m a fan of many of these tips – here’s my take:
-Be attention-grabbing. Once you’ve captured a subscriber and they’ve opened the e-mail you sent, your primary goal is to stop them from hitting delete. Working towards smart, quippy headlines and subject lines is a great way to start. And personal salutations go a long way, especially if they’re aligned with your brand and tone of voice.
-Create a little drama. Smart copywriting and good editing can quickly establish a sense of immediacy and suspense. Are you able to help your reader solve some kind of problem? Is what you’re selling a game-changer? How can you communicate the ready value of your message and product or service in terms that will hold a reader long enough to get to the call to action?
-Turn the momentum into action. Once you’ve held a reader’s attention for long enough to engage them in an “ask,” you can offer a low-key call to action that requires little effort on their part and still has a value for your business. Remember – your CTA is not just about selling something; the clickthrough moment needs to be about connecting a real person with something truly, uniquely valuable.
