7 Reasons Why Your e-Mail Campaigns
After sending 113+ million e-mail campaigns on behalf of our clients, I have listed the top e-mail marketing mistakes I see most payroll services make. They are:
Reason #1: No Follow-Up Call Was Ever Made – The #1 reason why an e-mail marketing campaign(s) fails is the lack of a follow-up call. My suggestion:
Reason #2: Poor Messaging And Subject Lines – Another top reason why your e-mail marketing results are lackluster is this: Poor messaging and copy. And yes, your subject line falls in this category as well. My suggestions:
Reason #3: Sending Too Many Or Too Few e-Mails – Have you ever received an e-mail from someone and then received 3 to 4 e-mails in the first 72 hours? If you have, you know it does more harm than good. My suggestions:
Reason #4: Not Segmenting Your Databases By Target Audience - Many e-mail marketing campaigns fail because the information that is e-mail is nothing more than a generic newsletter blast. My suggestions:
Reason #5: Not Using A Low-Risk Offer – By not having a highly visible low-risk offer or call-to-action, you are missing out on some potential sales leads and referrals. My suggestions:
Reason #6: Not Having An e-Mail Strategy - One of the top reasons your e-mail marketing efforts fail is this: Not having an e-mail marketing strategy. My suggestions:
Reason #7: Not Constantly Building A Database Of Prospect e-Mail Addresses – If you are not continually building your database of e-mail addresses, your “prospect” open rates will flatline over time. My suggestions:
Executive Summary: The days of blasting a generic, one-size-fits-all newsletter to everyone in your e-mail database and expecting a sales lead or a referral are over. Be smart and create a plan of action AND a sales follow-up plan. Once you do this, you will see a dramatic improvement in your sales results.
