Email marketing is an excellent way to upsell your existing database into new products and services or to invite potential customers to a webinar or a lunch and learn. So, how do you get the most of your email marketing?
Here are a few tips:
Frequency: Send at least one email blast per month. Alternate between educational content, such as newsletters, and a selling piece, such as “Can We Help You With Your IT Needs?”
Sender Email: To ensure higher email deliverability, use a personal email addresses (ex: firstname.lastname@example.org). Using role emails, such as email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, tend to land in spam filters.
Subject Line: Subject lines are considered as one of the most important factors that determine whether a user will open or delete your email. Be sure to take the time to craft your subject lines by:
- Avoiding trigger words that will send your emails to spam, such as “Free,” “Sign Up,” and “Promotion”.
- Making sure the subject line is consistent with the email’s content (to comply with the Can-Spam Act of 2003).
Best Days to Send Emails (B2B): According to MailChimp, data shows that emails delivered between Tuesday and Thursday perform better for B2B marketing.
Best Time to Send Emails (B2B): Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. is best if your goal is to get clicks on embedded links, and Tuesday at 8:00 a.m. is best if your goal is to achieve responses.
