In this post, I’m going to show you five tried and true ways to create campaigns that your subscribers won’t be able to resist. So grab your favorite cuppa, put on your thinking cap, and get ready to become an email marketing ninja!

TIP #1: Attention-Grabbing Subject Lines

Let’s be real, your subscribers are busy people with overflowing inboxes. So, how can you make sure your emails stand out? By crafting subject lines that are impossible to ignore! Create personalised, urgent, and benefit-driven subject lines that will make your subscribers drop everything and open your emails.

Hack: Personalisation can include using the subscriber’s name or referencing their interests. While using urgency can create a sense of FOMO (fear of missing out) that motivates subscribers to act fast. Benefit-driven subject lines focus on the value that the subscriber will get from opening the email. By incorporating these elements into your subject lines, you’ll increase the chances of your email getting opened and read.

Tip #2: Use Eye-Catching Visuals

The saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” definitely applies to email marketing. By using visuals, you can break up long blocks of text and make your emails more engaging and appealing to your subscribers. But it’s not just about using any visuals; it’s about using the right visuals. You want to make sure they align with your brand, are of high-quality, and relevant to your message.

For example, if you’re promoting a sale on your clothing line, consider including images of models wearing the clothes that are on sale or displaying the discounted prices on the products. Or, if you’re promoting a new blog post, consider including a graphic that showcases the main topic or theme of the post.

Another great visual option is using GIFs. They add an element of fun and personality to your emails and can help illustrate a point or showcase a product in action. Here are some great campaign examples you can use for inspiration!

Tip #3: Create Compelling Call-to-Actions

In order to get your subscribers to take action, you need to make sure your call-to-actions are compelling and impossible to resist, and when it comes to creating a compelling call-to-action, the language you use is key.

By using action-oriented language, you can create a sense of urgency and encourage your subscribers to take action right away. Use phrases like “Act Now” and “Limited Time Offer” to create a sense of urgency and motivate your subscribers to act fast. Don’t forget to make them clear, specific, and actionable. Get ready to see those conversion rates soar!

Tip #4: Segment Your List Like A Pro

It’s time to start segmenting your email list like a pro. I’m talking about dividing your subscribers based on their interests, behavior, and demographics, so you can send them emails that speak directly to their needs. Say goodbye to generic emails that bore your subscribers and hello to personalized messages that leave a lasting impact.

Hack: Some examples of list segmentation can include –

  • New subscribers
  • Inactive subscribers
  • Previous clients
  • Geographic location
  • Different interests

Get ready to see your open and click-through rates skyrocket once you start segmenting your email list!

Tip #5: Personalise Your Messages

Picture this: You receive an email with your name on it, talking about a product that you recently showed interest in. How does that make you feel? Special, right? That’s the power of personalisation in email marketing! Take advantage of that power by using data like name, location, and purchase history to create messages that are tailored to your subscribers’ interests and needs. 

For example, if you’re a clothing retailer and you know that a subscriber has recently purchased a dress, you could send them an email suggesting other items that would pair well with it. This type of targeted messaging shows that you’re paying attention to your subscribers and can increase their engagement and loyalty.

To make personalisation work for your business, you’ll need to collect and store subscriber data in a way that allows you to segment your list and send targeted messages. Many email marketing platforms offer features like list segmentation and personalisation tags that make this process easier. 

Remember, personalisation doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. Even simple touches like using a subscriber’s name in the subject line or greeting can make a big impact. The key is to be thoughtful and strategic in how you use personalisation to enhance the subscriber experience.
