  • Word count: 323
  • Time to read: 90 Seconds

If you want more people to read your next e-mail campaign, here are a few tips to consider.

#1: Avoid Writing Content That Is Too Self-Serving – Keep your e-mail campaign’s content relevant to the database it’s being sent to.  

#2: Avoid Writing A Wall Of Text – Don’t fall victim to writing a wall of text to get a campaign done. My suggestions are:

  • Use headlines, sub-headlines, and bullet points.
  • Keep your paragraphs to three to four sentences.
  • Keep a sentence word count to less than 15 to 17 words.
  • Keep your overall message count to 350 words.
  • Only use two to three types of fonts.

#3: Segment Your e-Mail Marketing Lists – Create databases of clients, past clients, prospects, CPAs, etc.

#4: Keep Your e-Mail List Updated - You need to continuously build and update your database of clients, prospects, and referral partners; don't forget to delete the e-mail addresses that bounce. 

#5: Know What Affects Your Open Rates - 80% of an e-mail's open rate is based on: Your subject line, the from field, and the day/time a campaign is sent.

#6: Use Your Payroll Service's Name In The "From" Field - On mass e-mail marketing campaigns, use your biz name in the from field. 

#7: The Size Of Your e-Mail Database – Most salespeople need to have at least 1,000 to 2,500 e-mail addresses on file.

#8: Pick Up The Phone - After sending an important e-mail campaign to a database, i.e., webinar invite, call the people who opened it. 

#9: Proofread Your e-Mail Campaigns – Before sending your next e-mail marketing campaign, print your final copy and give it to two other people to proof.

#10: Consider Hiring A Professional Copywriter – Just because you have Word installed on your computer or a graphic design program, it doesn’t make you a good copywriter/designer. Do your payroll service a favor and hire someone who does e-mail marketing and/or copywriting for a living.
