The people who buy what you sell spend 40% - 50% of their day dealing with their inboxes. That being said, e-mail marketing is a great way to reach your database of prospects, clients, and referral partners, i.e., CPAs.
To help your business get more people to open your next e-mail marketing campaign, I have listed below a few tips you might want to read and share.
Tip #1: Segment Your List - The first thing you need to do is segment your list by the target audience, as this will help you deliver messages that are more relevant to a reader. Plus, it will make it easier to track the success of your campaigns and identify which groups are most interested in your products or services.
Here are a few ways to segment your e-mail databases:
- Prospects – X Industry Association Members
- Prospects – Sales Rep #1
- Prospects - Received a Proposal In 20XX
- Prospects – Buys From a Competitor
- Referral Partners – Enrolled Agents
- Referral Partners – CPAs
- Referral Partners – Bookkeepers
- Clients - Active
- Clients - Inactive
Tip #2: Send e-Mails At The Right Time - The day and time that you send an e-mail campaign has a direct correlation to its open rate. With that in mind, it’s a good idea to use a tool to help you send a campaign between 8:00 am to 9:00 am or 2:45 pm.
IMPORTANT: We’ve had the most success sending our clients’ campaigns on a Tuesday with a follow-up campaign to the subscribers who didn’t open the original campaign on a Friday. Sure, there are exceptions to this rule, but after sending 131 million e-mail messages, I am sharing what works for our clients.
Tip #3: Use A Great Subject Line - A subject line is a headline for the reader; therefore, it’s crucial to write a subject line that will get someone's attention. Here are some tips for your next subject line:
- Personalize a subject line with the person’s name or company name.
- Make your subject line relevant to the majority of readers.
- Consider using a subject line that is either negative or positive.
