  • Tue, 20 Aug 2019 18:34:10 +0000: 2019 Fall GIF Guide - Email Marketing Tips

    GIFs are more than just fun images to look at — they can drastically increase your marketing results, too.

    That's because eye-catching visuals boost engagement. For instance, Facebook posts with images see 2.3 times more engagement than those without images. Tweets with visuals garner 150% more retweets than tweets without them. And GIFs in emails can increase click-through rates by 42% and conversion rates by 103%, and have a positive effect on revenue.

    So adding a GIF to your upcoming fall newsletter or promotional email is a smart move. To create awesome GIFs, you can tinker around with GIF-making websites and apps (but that'll eat up a lot of your time). Or you can hire a designer to make them for you in Photoshop (but that’ll cost you some hard-earned cash).

    The solution: Use these FREE brand-new, fall GIFs created by AWeber’s talented brand designers. Download your favorites from the 8 below, and then add them to your emails, social media posts, or your website!

  • Thu, 18 Jul 2019 18:48:25 +0000: Should You Use Emojis in Your Subject Line? - Email Marketing Tips

    Should You Use Emojis in Subject Lines

    Recently, AWeber’s Senior Content Marketing Strategist Liz Willits analyzed more than 1,000 emails from 100 of the top email marketers. She found that the average email length is 434 words, and the average subject line length is roughly 44 characters.

    But if you want to stand out in the inbox, you can’t be average.

    Willits dove into her research with author and marketing guru Tim Cameron-Kitchen, on his popular podcast, the Exposure Ninja. Willits explained that while knowing the average formula for email is a great starting point, the most successful email marketers go against the grain. They do the opposite of what’s popular.

    You can do the same, said Willits on the podcast. Take emojis in subject lines, for example.

    “According to our research, only 6.9% of people use emojis in their subject lines,” said Willits on the podcast “If most people aren’t using emojis in their subject lines, then it might be a good idea to try using them and see if it impacts your email open rates. It might just help you stand apart from other messages in the inbox. The most successful email marketers are successful because they’re unique.”

    For more tips on writing unique and powerful emails that get opened and clicked, listen to Liz’s advice on the Exposure Ninja Podcast, episode #132 (Lessons Learned from the World's Most Successful Email Marketers). Or, listen on your favorite podcasting apps like Stitcher or Spotify.

  • Tue, 16 Jul 2019 21:08:39 +0000: How Interactive Emails Will Change Marketing Forever - Email Marketing Tips

    The way marketers use email marketing is about to change forever. Emails have always been static. You send your subscribers fixed content, and they read it or click on it to go to a webpage or landing page. 

    But on March 26, 2019, Google’s Product Manager Aakash Sahney announced AMP for Email. AMP stands for Accelerated Mobile Pages. It allows email marketers to easily create emails that are interactive, not static. 

    AWeber is the first small business email service provider to support the new AMP for Email technology. “Interactive email opens up amazing potential for marketers to engage and connect with subscribers in ways they've never been able to before,” says AWeber’s Technical Product Manager Dave Stys. And a recent study from Kapost found that interactive content drives 2x more conversions than static content.

    Learn what interactive emails are and how you can use them in your email marketing below.

    (Try AWeber free for 30 days and build your own interactive email.)

    What are interactive emails?

    Interactive emails are messages that your subscribers can click on to change or alter the content within the email itself — even after the message is delivered to the inbox. The content can also update each time they open the email. Interactive emails act like a webpage.

    Interactive content allows you to send emails that are more engaging. You can include extra content in your emails without overwhelming subscribers, and your subscribers can interact with the email to get additional information if they need it. “It will open up the opportunity for email subscribers to engage with content without ever leaving their inbox,” AWeber’s Creative Director Chris Vasquez says.

    Related: [On-demand webinar] How to Create Interactive Content with AMP for Email

    5 examples of interactive content

    1. Carousel

    With a carousel, your subscribers can click to navigate through different images, products, or blog posts in your emails. If you have multiple pieces of content to display in your email, you can use a carousel to save space and enhance the design of your message.

    2. Accordions

    When a subscriber clicks on an accordion, a section of the email will expand to show more content. You can use accordions to give subscribers the option to see additional information within your email.

    3. Sidebar

    A sidebar is like a website or app navigation menu. If you’d like to give subscribers the option to navigate to different webpages, use a sidebar.

    4. Bind

    Do you need to display different content for different subscribers? Now, you can add buttons to your email to let subscribers completely alter the content within a message.

    For example, your subscribers can change the language of your email.

    5. Forms

    Add a working email sign up form to your message. Your subscribers can sign up for a webinar, email list, or event directly from your message.

    Use AWeber to build interactive emails.

  • Wed, 19 Jun 2019 18:29:08 +0000: 5 Powerful Ways to Drive More Sales Through Email - Email Marketing Tips

    social proof

    Ever see an advertisement for a fitness program? There’s typically a “before” photo and an “after” photo of a customer who followed the workout.

    On the left is a “before” photo of a shirtless, slouching man. He’s pale. Average-looking. He’s not smiling.

    Then, in the photo on the right, the same guy magically turns into a tall, bronzed, Greek God with an eight-pack of cobblestone abs. His biceps are the size of bowling balls. He’s ridiculously happy.

    They barely look like the same person. But that’s the point, right?

    You can relate to the guy on the left, but you want to be the guy on the right. If lefty could do it, so can you!

    I may be exaggerating this a bit to make my point, but here’s the thing: Social proof works.

    What is social proof?

    The gist of social proof: When people are uncertain, they’ll look to others for guidance. In marketing, social proof can be a powerful psychological trigger to influence people to buy a product or service.

    Social proof is so effective because it helps your customers confidently make a decision. You're providing evidence that your product is beneficial, has more fans than just your mom, and can positively transform people's lives.

    Luckily, you don’t have to get your customers to go shirtless to provide evidence that your product works. (If you’re not in the fitness industry, that would be . . . awkward.) There are other ways to do it.

    5 Ways to Include Social Proof in Your Emails

    Social proof #1: quotes

    Ask a satisfied customer for a quote about why they love your product or can’t wait to try it. Or grab quotes and comments from your social media feeds.

    When a new subscriber reads that other people are excited about your product, they’ll be more likely to take action, too.

    Jonathan Goodman, the founder of Personal Trainer Development Center, uses quotes from his social feeds as proof of happy customers. This helps drive more sales for his latest issue of Fitness Marketing Monthly, a print newsletter delivered to subscribers' doorsteps.

    social proof: quotes

    Social proof #2: numbers

    Marketing professionals use data all the time to persuade people to buy a product or donate to a cause. They call it the "Statistics Appeal," and it’s based off research that shows people generally trust numbers. So use numbers and stats that tie directly to the success or quality of your product to give perceived weight to your product.

    Brian Dean, the SEO expert behind Backlinko and an AWeber customer, uses his numbers to prove why he’s an expert in SEO on YouTube. He uses this as social proof for why you should sign up for his course.

    social proof

    Social proof #3: ratings

    Have 5/5 stars on Amazon or Google? Let your subscribers know!

    Great reviews or ratings provide social proof that others recommend your business or products, which might compel prospects to click through to the order page or check out the reviews. If your subscribers see others taking positive actions, they will be more inclined to buy.

    Below, you can see how Henneke Duistermaat of Enchanting Marketing ends her 16-part snackable writing course with links to buy her two books. She also points out that they both receive 5/5 star reviews.

    Related: FREE course: What to Write in Your Emails (45+ downloadable email templates)

    social proof

    Social proof #4: influencers

    If you have famous customers, tell your subscribers. Or have them give you an endorsement that you can include in your messages. People are more likely to buy a product if they admire a person or business that uses it.

    Social proof #5: case studies

    Have a customer who is extremely excited about your product or service? Ask them to relay their experience to you, and post it on your blog or website. Their story may entice others to try your product, as well.

    Ramit Sethi uses case studies of happy students to sell his 6-Figure Consulting Program.

    Social proof — when used to drive home why you're an expert in your field and why your product can help transform your subscribers' lives — can exert immense influence over your readers' actions. But like any other email marketing tactic, social proof only works if you provide your audience with compelling, helpful content.

    Ready to get started adding social proof to your email marketing campaigns? Try AWeber for FREE today. It's never been easier to connect with your audience and drive success for your business.

Using an autoresponder can help you keep your product in front of prospects even while you’re giving them the extra information they need before making a purchase. An autoresponder is designed to send out emails automatically to the people on your subscriber list. Traditionally, autoresponders were used to send emails automatically when you’re not available.

However, it’s possible to set up a sequential autoresponder to automatically send out a series of emails at pre-set times. For example, you might want to offer your subscribers a ‘tip of the day’about your product, so you’d set your autoresponder to send out a new tip each day for you. This article will look at some ways you can use an autoresponder to help increase your business.

The biggest benefit of using an autoresponder service is the sense of surety or trust that comes with. All service providers value your business. So they know they must take care of your business with their services. Their equipment is heavy duty and will be able to take care of any volume of mailing. It doesn’t matter how large your list. You can email your lists in various formats, as well. You’ll be able to send a test email which is always a good idea. This feature alone can save you tons of headaches.

In addition to all the other benefits, you’ll also gain a little peace of mind. Not a bad thing to have. No worries about taking care of a large list should you get to that point. All this allows you to be hopeful about your business future, and you’ll have the ability to participate in real automatic marketing. Apart from this, an autoresponder also allows you to customize your email messages so that you are able to interact with your subscribers directly in a conversational tone. You’ll still retain the personal touch with this level of automation. Your emails will seem like they were hand crafted and hand delivered.

It’s no coincidence that all highly successful online businesses use autoresponders and list marketing. Having a plan to always be striving for increasing your customer base should be part of your long term business goals.

If you haven’t tried the new Unlimited Subscribers In Each List yet, now is the time. Do list swaps with other affiliate marketers that lets you conduct a controlled experiment with your sign up forms and messages to help to see which factors make them perform better for your campaigns.

There’s not a marketer on the planet who prefer to pay for something when they can get it free. Free marketing tools are getting better and better

Email marketing doesn’t need to be hard, but if you’re trying to make it
profitable and haven’t a clue – then it will be very tough. Let’s move on and
take a look at the power of email marketing, and what you can do to tap

 

An example of a simple
autoresponder can be found in email services like Gmail, where you can set your
autoresponder. If you’ve ever sent an email to someone and gotten a fast,
automated reply telling you that they aren’t currently available, that was an
autoreponder message.

Email marketing is an entire subject unto itself, and if you wanted you could
really spend a lot of time learning about it.
