  • Wed, 12 Dec 2018 15:15:27 +0000: The Secret to Writing Addictive Email Content - Email Marketing Tips

    Top marketers use the same strategy to craft addictive emails. And it’s not beautiful email design or flawless writing. (Although these are both important!)

    It’s sending valuable emails that your subscribers actually want in their inboxes.

    Not sure if your emails are addictive? Follow these 5 rules, and you'll craft addictive content your audience won’t be able to find anywhere else.

    Prefer to listen to this blog post? Check out the podcast adaptation of this post or watch the YouTube video:

    1. Solve your audience’s problems.

    Addictive content is helpful. And the best way to create helpful content is to brainstorm topics that address your audience's needs.

    Not sure what your audience needs? Figure out their biggest "pain point" — or the problem that keeps them up at night. After all, people don't buy a product or service because of it's flashy features. They ultimately purchase a product because it solves a problem for them.

    By understanding your subscribers' biggest pain points, you can more effectively promote your product and write convincing marketing copy. Here's how to find your customers' pain points.

    2. Keep your subscribers interested.

    Addictive content is interesting. To create interesting content, there are a few writing principles to keep in mind.

    First, choose a tone that works best for your audience. In many cases, taking a conversational tone can improve readability and make your brand more relatable.

    However, if your audience expects a serious tone because it’s more appropriate for your industry, then keep it formal.

    Regardless of whether your tone is light-hearted, witty, irreverent, or formal, you should treat your subscribers with respect, says John Corcoran, founder of Smart Business Revolution.

    "I don’t talk down to people," says Corcoran. "I make it worthwhile to read my emails. I even bury jokes in the ‘P.S.’ and small font at the end just to delight and surprise people who are paying attention.”

    Second, organize your email content in a way that’s easy for subscribers to read and skim.

    In today’s fast-paced world, you may only have a few seconds to showcase the value of your email. Structure your content so the most important information is at the top. Additionally, use headlines, subheadlines, and bullet points to break up large chunks of text. (It's so much easier to read on mobile devices. At AWeber, we recommend paragraphs being 2 to 3 sentences max.) To emphasize important parts of your message, try bolding, italicizing, or underlining words and phrases.

    3. Craft unique content.

    Addictive content is one-of-a-kind.

    In order to make your content stand out from the rest, try taking a new angle on a topic. This will also help establish you as a thought leader in your niche.

    For example, many people think that you need a ton of email subscribers to be successful with email marketing. But this isn’t the case! So AWeber's Product Marketing Manager Tom Tate wrote a blog post which explained that a small, engaged email list is better than a huge, disengaged one. This post was extremely successful because it provided a unique angle on an important topic.

    You can also try new content mediums where your competitors may not have big audiences. If your industry is flooded with blog posts and ebooks, experiment with other forms of communication, like podcasts or video.

    Not sure what to write in your emails? Check out these 45+ free email writing templates to get you started.

    4. Keep your promises.

    Addictive content is transparent.

    A big reason why subscribers disengage with an email list is because the emails no longer deliver the value they were expecting. So don't try to get readers to open an email with "click bait" — or a subject line that's enticing, but has very little to do with the content inside the message.

    The first step to transparency with email: Explain what content you'll send and how often you'll send it on your sign up form.

    By telling people what they can expect before they sign up to your list, they’ll know what they’re getting into. Plus, you’ll be more likely to attract the right subscribers (which are more likely to engage with your content and purchase your products or services).

    The second step to transparency: Stick to your promises!

    If you say you'll send an email once a month, don't bombard your readers with emails every two days. If you say you'll send helpful tips and advice, don't send advertisements. If you do, you'll see your unsubscribes and spam complaints increase almost immediately, which will ultimately hurt your business in the long run.

    5. Create connections.

    Addictive content builds relationships

    We enjoy doing business with people we know, like, and trust — as opposed to a large faceless corporation. Humanize your message to increase connection and engagement with your subscriber.

    The deeper a connection you make with a subscriber, the more likely they are the engage with your emails, buy products from you, and tell their network about your business.

    One way to do this: Ask questions. The more feedback — good and bad! — you gather from your subscribers, the more likely your business is to succeed. By asking your subscribers questions, may discover a flaw in your product that is stopping them from purchasing. Or maybe they all mention one feature that they absolutely love, and that you can capitalize on in your marketing material. Or maybe they'll tell you their biggest business challenge, which leads to your next great product idea. Or maybe you gather a bunch of fantastic testimonials and case studies that you can promote on your website.

    Feedback is fuel for your business.

    Another way: personalization. You don’t need to be pen pals with each of your subscribers. But you should make them feel as if you’re sending them personalized emails.

    Here’s why: 74% of marketers said that targeted messages and personalization of emails improves customer engagement rates.

    Try including your subscriber’s name in your message. You can add their first name in the middle or end of the email copy instead of at the beginning, which draws your reader’s eyes downward and keeps them reading. Or you can collect your subscribers’ birth dates on your sign up form. Then send them a celebratory message or a coupon on their birthday.

    The more you try to connect with your readers, the more successful your email marketing will be.

    email newsletter on your mobile phone

    A few weeks ago, AWeber’s Director of Product Chris Vasquez came back from speaking about the power of email at a digital marketing conference.

    And he was excited, to say the least.

    After his speech, Chris had a line of marketing experts waiting to talk to him. But they didn’t want to talk to him about his presentation — they wanted to talk to him about a 30-second demo he had given on his phone.

    The demo was of Curate, AWeber’s mobile app. Chris revealed how Curate allows you to create and send an email newsletter on your phone with just a few taps of your screen. That means you can stay in contact with your subscribers anywhere, anytime. It makes email marketing unbelievably easy.

  • Tue, 04 Dec 2018 19:22:56 +0000: Transform Your Emails from “Meh” to Merry with These Holiday Design Tips - Email Marketing Tips

    As AWeber’s Brand Designer, there is nothing I hate more than seeing holiday emails plastered with red and green, and images of holly, Christmas trees, and presents. These messages are often garish and difficult to read. And after your subscribers have seen dozens of similar holiday messages, they're likely to ignore yours.

    But that doesn't need to be the case! To help you design beautiful, stand-out emails this holiday season,  I've compiled my best holiday design tips. No graphic designer needed!

    Think outside of the (in)box

    One of the easiest and best ways to gain inspiration for your design is to see how other successful companies design their emails. A great resource for email design inspiration is Really Good Emails, a database of emails from various companies.

    But instead of (just) searching for terms like "Christmas," "Holiday," or "Black Friday" for email examples, try brainstorming some unique keywords that make you think of the holiday season.

    For example, you could try one of the following search terms:

    • winter
    • gift wrap
    • greenery
    • hot chocolate
    • cookies

    I found this email by Prezi in my search for “winter.” It’s a great example of an email with subtle, yet effective, holiday design.

    holiday email design example

    Prezi combines their brand palette of blues and white with a splash of red and gold, to add some holiday cheer. By doing so, The email still feels “on brand” and recognizable to their customers. They also use snowflakes in their header image to add to the festive feel.

    If you're not a designer, you can easily create a festive email by using one of AWeber's holiday email templates. Just add your brand logo and colors to customize it to your company! (Use one of these festive templates today with a 30-day free trial of AWeber.)

    Related: The Top Email Design Trends You Must Know

    Be true to your brand

    What colors represent your brand? If you’re not sure, take a look at your logo, website, previous emails, or social media images. What colors are most prominent?

    For example, AWeber’s logo uses a royal blue and light gray. Our website features a larger palette of green, light blue, and white.

    AWeber home page

    Instead of just using red and green as our main colors for a holiday email, I would first pull from the selection on our homepage and use supporting images to give it some holiday sparkle.

    If your branding colors don’t remotely remind you of the holidays, still use 2 to 3 of your most prominent colors. Then, add pops of gold, red, green, or silver in very small amounts.

    Because AWeber’s colors have a winter feel with blues and grays, I'll play up that feeling with snowy graphics. I still want to add an additional pop of holiday red and brand green that will support my identified color palette.

    Use unique and eye-catching imagery

    One of the best ways to spice up your holiday emails is with themed images. And you don’t need a graphic designer or a custom photo budget to do so. There are many free resources you can take advantage of, like stock photos.

    Stock photos are images that anyone can use creatively. They’re often a quick, professional, and inexpensive (or even free!) option.

    For free stock photos, search unsplash.com and pexels.com. Use the list of unique holiday words you brainstormed or a different word that aligns with your theme as keywords in your photo search.

    Once you find the perfect image, think about ways you can customize it to match your brand. If you need some tips, this post has easy ways to brand your images for free.

    Another fun and attention-grabbing option is to use animated GIFs within your email. If you have no idea how to make a GIF, we did the work for you! Our 2018 Holiday GIF package has the latest and greatest seasonal GIFs. Simply download one of our free GIFs and upload it to your next holiday email.

    Here's an email I designed that's simple but still has a recognizable holiday twist. I used AWeber’s Notification template and easily added one of our holiday GIFs with AWeber’s Drag-And-Drop Editor.

    (See how easy it is to create an email just like this using AWeber's Drag-and-Drop editor and the Notification template. Create your free trial account now.)

  • Mon, 26 Nov 2018 15:07:58 +0000: The Checklist Every Email Marketer Needs This Holiday Season - Email Marketing Tips

    There’s a simple way to launch a flawless email campaign this holiday season: Check your list and check it twice. Your holiday email marketing campaign checklist, that is!

    We researched what the best holiday email campaigns have in common. Then, we created a checklist you can follow to ensure you have a merry and successful holiday season.

    1. Create a holiday email calendar.

    Keeping track of all the holidays (like Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas, Hanukkah, the New Year) can quickly become overwhelming. Creating an email editorial calendar can really help organize the mayhem.

    A calendar can also help you accommodate for the rest of your team’s time, which comes in handy if they’re helping with tasks like design, writing, or scheduling the message.

    (If you need a little help with planning your editorial calendar, check out this blog post!)

    If you already have a calendar, make sure it’s up to date with your holiday campaigns. You’ll be sending a lot of emails this time of year, so planning everything out in advance will help you meet your deadlines and create content your subscribers will love.

    2. Offer exclusive holiday promotions.

    To keep up with the competition, you’ll want to make sure you’re sending holiday emails with content your subscribers want this time of year, like great deals on your products.

    Don’t have a physical product to offer? This is the perfect time to provide discounts on digital gifts like online courses, ebooks, checklists, templates, and more.

    3. Write descriptive subject lines.

    According to a report pulled by our team of data analysts, emails get higher open rates when their subjects lines align with the content inside the email.

    You can apply this to your holiday email campaigns by directly mentioning special offers and details about those offers in your subject lines. If you plan on featuring a 50% discount on an online course, make sure you mention the course and the discount in your subject line.

    Check out this holiday-themed subject line and email from home goods store West Elm: “😀 UP TO 70% OFF—there’s still time! Plus, our staff’s must-haves” They reference that there's still time left and the discount (percentage off).

    4. Create a sense of urgency by referencing dates and times.

    The more you can emphasize the urgency or importance of buying now, the more you can influence subscribers to take action.

    So how can you get your audience to feel this way?

    By referencing dates, times, or seasons.

    In the report mentioned above, our data analysts also found that subject lines with the highest open rates mentioned time (e.g., Week 1, December newsletter). By emphasizing that the holidays are quickly approaching or a specific sale is ending, you can motivate your subscribers to take action.

    Clothing company Banana Republic sent out an email promoting a Christmas sale, which included the following subject line:

    “Today! 50% off EVERYTHING (we mean EVERYTHING)”

    5. Get festive with your email design

    To pump up the holiday energy in your message, consider using a holiday email template or including design elements that convey a festive vibe.

    Check out this merry message from the clothing company Talbots:

    By bringing in holiday-themed colors and images (Can’t get enough of those rainbow string lights!), Talbots is able to add a festive flair that accompanies the content.

    The best part of all? They do so in a way that doesn’t feel like a complete departure from their brand – both the header and footer in the email maintain the standard Talbots look and feel.

    To replicate this for your own emails, consider using color schemes (e.g., red, green, white, gray), templates, and images (e.g., snow, holiday lights and decor) that convey a seasonal spirit.

    Start spreading holiday cheer

    While you may already have a holiday email campaign in motion, it’s never too late to make tweaks along the way. The more you can make your emails stand out from the rest this time of year, the merrier the season will be for you and your business.

  • Wed, 21 Nov 2018 15:38:56 +0000: The 3 Email Rules You Must Follow This Holiday Marketing Season - Email Marketing Tips

    Plan to send emails this holiday marketing season?

    Stay off your subscribers' naughty list by following these 3 email rules. They'll help you reduce unsubscribes, increase your sales, and get the right message into the right person's hands.

    This post was based on our popular holiday marketing webinar! Click this link and register to watch it on-demand.

    Let your subscribers mute your emails

    Problem: Promotional email volume increases significantly during the holiday season.

    And what do most people do when the volume is high? They hit the “unsubscribe” link. Sending just one too many emails in a given time period might push your average reader to reconsider their subscription.

    Solution: Include a “mute” button or link in your emails. This will  reduce your unsubscribes during periods of increased sending. Your audience might want to stay on your list and hear from you . . . just not right now, or not about this particular topic/promotion.

    Give your audience the freedom to choose.

    Plus, this allows you to send messages to a segment of subscribers that actually WANTS to receive them. You’ll likely see higher conversion rates, higher opens and clicks, and higher revenue generated from this targeted audience.

    Related: 11 Festive GIFs for Your Holiday Marketing Emails

    Here's an example of how to incorporate a "mute" option.

    Using AWeber’s click automations, you can apply a tag to any subscriber that clicks the mute link or button. Below, I named the tag "muted-2019."

    Now, whenever you send an email that shouldn’t include the subscribers that explicitly said “mute me,” you can easily remove them from the send list.

    After this tag is applied, you can create a dynamic segment (a fancy word for group) of subscribers that do not have the mute tag. This is the audience who still wants to hear from you.

    See the example below. I created the segment by choosing anyone who "is not" tagged with muted-2019. This pulls all other subscribers in your list who do not have the muted-2019 tag, and makes them their own segment.

    When the promotional period is over, or you are back to your regular send frequency, start sending to everyone again!

    Discover your best offer with split testing

    Problem: How do you know what product or service offer will yield the most sales during Black Friday or Cyber Monday? How do you know what subject line will stand out in an already crowded inbox?

    The truth is . . .  you don’t.

    Solution: Split testing (or A/B testing) an email to a small percentage of your email list will give you an opportunity to discover what works!

    If you sell physical products, you might test different percentage discounts, or a buy one, get one free offer.

    If you sell services, like coaching or consulting, you might consider testing a free hour of coaching v. a percentage off your normal rate.

    Using AWeber’s split testing feature, I can test two offers (below): 20% off v. 30% off. I'll send two emails. Each one will go to a small, random segment of my list — say, 10% of my list. In AWeber, I can track the success of the emails to see which offer was most popular and drove more sales.

    Then, I can send the winning promotional email to the remaining 80% of my list.

    An email promoting a 30% discount will likely perform better than an email promoting a 20% discount, but by how much? Testing helps us confirm our suspicions and gain insights before we send a promotion to the whole list.

    (Many email marketing platforms limit what you can split test. Take Constant Contact and ConvertKit. They only allow you to split test subject lines. With AWeber, you can split test nearly every aspect of your emails: subject lines, send times, copy, templates, buttons, and more! This gives you the power to optimize your email strategy.

    Re-engage your sleepy subscribers

    Problem: Many people sign up for email lists and then slowly stop engaging with the messages. It’s unlikely these subscribers will ever click through and take advantage of your holiday offer, no matter how enticing it is.

    Solution: Wake up your sleepy subscribers with a smart re-engagement campaign.

    This is your chance to have your brand become top of mind before your holiday promotional emails are delivered. Inside AWeber, you can easily search for subscribers that have not engaged with your emails over a period of time.

    Here's an example of a search for "no opens" over the past 90 days. Then, you can save this as a segment to target with a re-engagement or winback email.

    (You can also search for subscribers who haven't clicked a link inside your email over a certain time period. Here’s more info on how to do it in AWeber.)

    Now that you have your unengaged segment, send a message to invite them to stay on the list. This might include an incentive to stick around, or some extra useful content. Here's an example the AWeber team has sent before:

    If they still don't engage (open or click)? It's in your best interest to unsubscribe these subscribers. Unengaged subscribers can negatively impact your open rates and deliverability, or they may even hit the SPAM button when your content arrives in their inbox.

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.

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.
