eTargetMedia’s Step by Step Guide to Increasing Email Conversions

 

The most important factor in determining how well an email campaign is performing is tracking and measuring email conversions. An engaging and well designed email message will help generate a high conversion rate which will lead to a high ROI. Marketers are always looking for ways to increase their conversion rates so here are the 5 steps to lifting an email’s conversions.

1. From Name and Subject Line – The from name and subject line are the first thing an email recipient sees when they receive an email. The from name should be recognizable so the email recipient trusts who the email is from and the subject line should entice the recipient to open the email. If the subject line doesn’t entice the user, the email will never get opened and conversion rates will be very low.

2. Email Header and Headline – The email header and headline should instantly explain the messaging of your email and should be clear and to the point. The header is the first thing the user will see when they open the email, so an enticing header will motivate the user to read the body of the email messaging.

3. Email Messaging – The content of the email should include strong messaging that tells the email recipient what the email is offering. Email messages with shorter, concise messaging always perform better and will drive a higher conversion rate. Email messaging could include special offers, information on sales and events, benefits of the product and more.

4. Strong Call to Actions – One of the most important elements of a successful email creative is including strong call to actions. Buttons and links that include titles like Buy Now, Learn More, Sign Up and Click Here will help to tell the email recipient what you want them to do next. Getting the email user to click through to your landing page can help drive sales and conversions.

5. Landing Page Alignment – A strong email creative isn’t going to perform very well if the landing page doesn’t align with the email messaging. Landing pages should complement the email message and contain similar graphics and copy of the email. Having a strong landing page that aligns well with the email will help to drive sales/leads and will deliver a high conversion rate.

Email is the most powerful digital marketing strategy available and following these steps can help increase your email’s conversion rates. Once you incorporate all of these steps into your email campaigns, you should see your open, click through and conversion rates improve. Visit us online at http://www.etargetmedia.com.

Simplicity is the Key to Successful Email Campaigns

 

Simplicity is the Key to Successful Email Campaigns

Designing the perfect email can seem like a tough challenge but it gets a lot easier when you realize that simplicity is the key to a successful email campaign. Keeping your email messages precise and relevant to your audience’s needs is the way to maximize your results every time. If you are wondering how to motivate your customers to open and engage with your email, the answer is simplicity. Stick to the basics to ensure that your email messages are opened, read and acted on.

Focus On One Message

When sending an email message to customers and prospects, you should always have one goal in mind. The goal of your message should be featured right at the start of the message to quickly engage the reader. Whether your goal is to announce a new product, give your customers a special offer or introduce your company to a new prospect, every element in the email should support the main goal of the message. Keeping things simple with one goal will allow you to direct your customers to the desired call to action.

Shorten Your Subject Lines

Short subject lines make it easy for the email recipient to identify who the sender is. A simple and direct subject line will always yield the best open rates. The most effective subject lines identify the sender, feature the offer, and stress urgency in opening the message.

Make Your Copy Easy to Read

Studies have proven that marketing copy that is focused, informal and easy to read has a higher response rate than long, complex copy. Read your email copy and then trim it down to ensure that you are only including essential information that will help increase open and click-through rates. You only have a couple of seconds to grab your reader’s attention so make sure your copy is easy to digest. Also, remember to speak to your audience in a familiar tone that is consistent with your brand.

Keep Your Design Simple but Engaging

Keeping your copy simple is very important but you should also focus on creating an engaging design. Make sure the layout of your email is easy to follow and include a strong call to action to help increase engagement and response rates. You should include graphics and photos that complement the copy and ultimate goal of your message but don’t include overly produced content. Cramming too much information into an email message may force the recipient to abandon the message. Finally, make sure that all of the design elements follow your brand guidelines so the email recipient sees the consistency between your company’s brand and the email message.

Test Your Email Before You Hit Send

You’ve put all that effort into designing your email message and now it’s time to hit send. Before you send out your message, it’s critical to test your email to make it sure it renders well in the most popular email programs. Engage your audience by following these steps and remember to keep your emails simple. Keeping the process simple will yield the best results.
