Overview of Email Marketing

Email Marketing is one of the strong and most effective digital marketing methods that use email to engage with a business audience.

Marketers use a primary channel to send promotional or informational content to promote products or services or keep the brand’s customers aware of the ongoing business activities.

These Emails could include any information such as new product launches, ongoing offers, or real-time updates of the brand. It can be also used for educational purposes such as informing customers about the benefits or value of your brand.

Through emails, you can keep your audience in touch and make them feel prioritized customers. An open rate of email is the percentage of subscribers who opened the particular mail out of the total number of subscribers.

An email open rate helps to determine whether the implemented email marketing strategy is successful or not, if yes then how much.

For every industry, there are established average email open rates through which we can measure the strategy and work on improvements.

Open rate is one of the most important key performance indicators (KPI).

Practices We Followed To Increase Email Open Rates

1. Crafted compelling subject lines.

Subject lines play a pivotal role in increasing email open rates. We managed to keep our subject lines short, subjective, and more relevant to the context.

Here are some tips for writing subject lines:

  • Keep it short, use 6-10 words.
  • Ask questions.
  • Make it mysterious.
  • Use relevant emojis.

2. Exact to the point preview texts.

While the subject line is written short and not so informative, we make preview texts straight to the point, inclining what is contained in the email.

Here are some tips for writing preview texts:

  • Create urgency, and encourage an audience to open their emails instantly.
  • Keep preview texts between 40-140 characters.
  • Include main points and use buzzwords.

3. Add Strong Call to Action.

We used a CTA as a button to encourage the audience to visit the link we directed them to. This helped to increase our website traffic and make the audience familiar with our products.

Tips for adding CTAs:

  • Keep it short, 2-3 words max, use Order Now, Visit Us, Get a Quote, etc.
  • Use bright colors for buttons.
  • Use action-oriented words.

4. Include Appealing Visuals.

Visuals helped to catch the reader’s attention and save time as they can quickly understand the context from the creative itself.

How to create visuals for email marketing:

  • Use high-quality images.
  • Display and highlight the main information you want to deliver.
  • Using infographics can generate more leads.
  • Use interactive elements.
