Creating a Proactive E-mail Marketing Program - More Tips and Conclusion
(Page 4 of 4 )
Attention-grabbing subjects - Each e-mail that you send out should have a short three- to four-word attention-grabbing subject line that persuades the target to open the e-mail and read the rest of the material. However, it is very important that your subject line should not contain words that are classified as spam by the various filtering systems. Once directed towards the spam box, it is unlikely that your e-mail marketing strategy will make any conversions.
Authentic content - A proactive e-mail program is a lengthy and sometimes even expensive procedure, so do not hastily post content that will have a negative effect on your reputation. The content that you send out to your prospects must be authentic and not simply trick deals that they find out about at a much later stage.
Follow through - Once an e-mail has been sent out to the target audience, it must be backed up by the main website. If an offer is made via e-mail, then the main website must contain a follow through. There is no point guiding prospects towards the site, when the site has nothing to offer them. So before sending out a marketing e-mail to the targets, do ensure that the website has been updated to include the offers and information that the marketing e-mail carries.
A proactive e-mail marketing program can do wonders for the sales data of a commercial venture. But like any other business strategy, it involves planning and dedication to ensure that the goals of the program are successfully met. Though the tips above help in creating a proactive e-mail marketing program, they are not set in stone. There are several marketing agencies out there that may be hired to keep the e-mail marketing plan of an e-commerce venture alive, or one may decide to do the needful independently. In either case, creativity and ingenuity are important qualities to lend to your e-mail marketing program when looking to make it successful.
