Many startups and small & medium enterprises are generally concerned about which channels have the best conversion results. With limited resources and lean settings, this is a real decision. The world has been covered by social media, and email is a channel that is often forgotten. However, experts will tell you why email marketing is so important that they are still the most profitable channel of all channels. This is why your startup needs an email marketing strategy.
Why Does Your Startup Need an Email Marketing Strategy :
1. Email accounts and traffic far more than social media so far
Here are some interesting data: Email already has 3 times more user accounts like Facebook and Twitter. Facebook and Twitter combine to send only 0.2% of emails per day (source). More email lists are not like your followers and fans on social media platforms. Email can bring you not only regular income but also your most loyal customer base online. That’s why email marketing from Amazon to ASOS is so successful.
2. Email can make people react. It is considered to be an individual or an official
Consumers are more concerned with emails that reach their mailboxes directly, rather than a tweet that has not been read, or a missed Facebook message. Email is the most original notification. The first thing most of us wake up is to check emails. We buy things from Amazon, and after a while, they push emails based on what they buy. There is a 40% discount on the purchase of a pair of shoes via email.
3. Email-driven cross-channel access
Consumers read email on their phones, tablets, home/work computers. You have the opportunity to find them on channels and platforms. An email opened on your phone can be linked to a mobile app and downloaded. You can get behavioral data on every device of your consumer and optimize the real data associated with your marketing campaign. You get an opportunity to choose to enter your consumer field.
How to optimize your startup’s email strategy :
1: Do not send spam or purchase an email address in a random directory
The intent to purchase an email is self-evident. If you send multiple unwanted messages, it may be considered spam. Unwanted email means that the data of the email is not customized or personalized to the user, that is, they are not registered, and you do not provide them with any options for unsubscribing (in this case, they will complain, And mark you as spam), when you send a lot of mail to CC or to a thousand people, or you send too many emails (more than 2-3 weeks is already very painful)
2: Optimize your email for mobile devices
Needless to say, if your email doesn’t respond to your mobile device or looks bad, you will quickly lose a user. Most consumers will read emails on their mobile devices in the car before they start the meeting. If the email looks “tough”, it immediately goes into the junk folder (after which Gmail keeps it in the trash).
3: Design and test your email. Use the tool reasonably
No one wants to read a poorly designed 3000 words of text. Make sure to use images and personalization related. Optimize your headline title for your users. Optimize and open the A/B test rate, click rate and test all other parameters. Use tools like EmailCar and ExtMall to help you with professional test mail design and create an email acquisition strategy.
4: Do not list email directories that have not been sent in a week.
Sleeping on the address of your email list will never help you. It certainly doesn’t help to sleep in your email list forever. Choose a day/week to send your email. Sending an email a month later will not help your business. Consistency is critical to any marketing campaign and email.
