Imagine a bicycle wheel. Branding and a website are the hub. Initiatives like email marketing, social media, video and other marketing tools are the spokes, driving the bicycle forward. This articles focuses on one of the spokes; email marketing, and here are 6 snackable tips for creating top-notch emails.
Have a Plan-Stan – Due dates can creep up on you and creating content on the fly can be challenging to say the least. Be sure to have a planning calendar where you have content you can plug in as needed.
Keep it Casual – Emails should be inviting, so use a conversational tone and keep it easy to read.
Don’t beat around the Bush – People tend to skim and scan their emails, so include bite-sized chunks of info. Bold headlines with 2-3 sentences of copy makes it easier to find relative content and include keywords in headlines for great SEO.
Think about Links – If you’re promoting a specific product or service, don’t make people search for the right link. Drive people to a specific page on your site – like this one for email marketing. Show them any new arrivals and give them an easy path to purchase.
Mouth-Watering Media – Encourage them to at least click-through by including beautiful images, animations, or short videos that may stir their impulse buying.
Ignite their Intrigue with Next Steps – Reinforce their interest. Offer links to tips, training, user groups, surveys and customer support. If an action is desired, such as an online purchase, be sure to include a link to your website and redirect them to the appropriate page.
