What is the most effective marketing tactic? Would you be surprised if we told you that email marketing is the answer? It’s true! Email marketing is perhaps the easiest way to communicate with your customers, and it’s also an effective method to use to generate more leads for your business. In this blog, we’ll discuss everything you need to know about generating more leads with email marketing.
Mass emails just don’t cut it anymore. No one wants to receive a generic email that doesn’t speak to them as an individual. By using email segmentation, businesses can cater to the needs and interests of specific groups of people based on their location, gender, personal interests, etc. After all, no two customers are the same!
Segmenting your emails will lead to higher open rates and click-through rates, which will lead to more conversions.
When it comes to the content of your emails, just remember to write for quality over quantity. Your content should have educational value; in other words, it should offer your customers information that they can’t find elsewhere online through a quick Google search. Find new things to highlight, whether it be promotional material, events, discounts, or rewards to loyal customers.
It’s easy to let your email content become stale and repetitive. To prevent this from happening, just try to put yourself in the mind of the consumer. What kind of content grabs your attention and why?
Relationships need time to grow before they can flourish, right? Marketing specifically to people who have previously engaged with your business may require some long-term thinking, but the long-term benefits are worth the effort. You can build stronger relationships with customers by sending them relevant content, building their trust, and engaging with them on a personal level (asking them for their feedback, for example).
Existing customers are more likely to read your content, contact you for help, and most importantly recommend you to potential customers (and therefore get you new leads). So don’t forget that relationships matter!
An email blast is precise as it sounds — a single email that is distributed to a large number of your email subscribers. This email marketing method is often used to build email lists quickly (the benefit), but it typically doesn’t perform as well when it comes to generating leads (the downside). So, there is a time and a place to use email blast marketing.
When you need to distribute information to a wide range of individuals, an email blast is the way to go. But when you need to appeal to a specific kind of audience, we recommend sticking with email segmentation.
