Are you looking for ways to generate higher open/click-through rates with your e-mail marketing campaigns? If you are, here are several tips to consider.

#1: Segment Your Databases: Send the same e-mail campaign to each group on file, i.e., clients, prospects, and referral partners.

#2: Update Your Databases: Remove any e-mail addresses that haven’t opened a campaign in 24-months.

#3: Add New e-Mail Addresses: Adding new e-mail addresses is a key to your success. 

#4: Send More Than A Newsletter: Sending just a newsletter once/twice a month will put your subscribers to sleep. Therefore, I recommend sending a variety to your databases. 

#5: Personalize Your e-Mails: Use a service that allows you to customize a campaign (see below):

  • Hello {First Name}:

#6: Avoid Writing A Wall Of Text: Since your target audience spends 4 - 6 hours a day managing their inbox, they scan your copy instead of reading. Therefore, use headlines, sub-headlines, and bullet points to convey a message.

#7: Use Engaging Subject Lines: People skim their inboxes for engaging subject lines; therefore, use the following techniques in your subject line:

  • Start with “How To” or a “#.”
  • Ask a question.
  • Show “time or quantity” shortage/savings.

#8:Send A "Reminder" e-Mail To Anyone Who Didn't Open Your Initial Campaign: Use a service that automatically sends a follow-up reminder to anyone who didn't open the initial campaign.

#9: Write Better Headlines: Your headline is the introduction to a topic. Remember, you have .5 to 1.0 seconds to capture someone’s attention.
