  • Wed, 06 Dec 2017 18:26:31 +0000: Introducing Push Notifications – Know When Your List Grows - Email Marketing Tips

    Introducing push notifications

    You know that feeling when you get a new subscriber? Or a lot of new subscribers?

    It’s a great feeling. And it’s incredibly motivating.

    It shows that what you’re doing is working. Perhaps your new subscriber loves your content. Or, even better, they’re interested in your product or service. Either way, they opted in to hear from you.

    That deserves a virtual high-five.

    And now you can get that virtual high-five on-the-go with push notifications, included in our latest update to AWeber’s Stats app, available for free on Android and iOS. Keep reading to learn how this update can up your email game:

     

     

    Know when your list grows

    The only way to measure your success with email marketing is to measure it!

    You can define your success by high open or click rates, increased traffic and sales from your emails, replies from your subscribers or positive sentiment.

    But one of the best metrics to track is list growth. At the core of email marketing, you’re forming relationships with your prospects and customers, and each new subscriber marks a new relationship that could be profitable for both you and them.

    To celebrate each new connection, use push notifications in AWeber’s Stats app to elect to receive a notification on your mobile device when a new person subscribes.

    Receive a notification when a new subscriber is added.

    Push notifications also lets you keep an eye out for trends. Notice a lot of subscribers opting-in on Mondays or Tuesdays? These might be your high-traffic days. Notice an influx of new subscribers on a typically quiet list? Maybe someone shared your content!

    Knowing when you grow can help you stay motivated, craft a solid strategy that capitalizes on what’s working right now and continue to deliver valuable content to your eager audience.

    Pro-tip: Need help with list growth? Check out our recent List Growth Blueprint free video course.

    Control how often you receive notifications

    Some AWeber users get a few new subscribers a week, while others get a few hundred a day!

    The AWeber Stats app lets you configure your notification settings based on your preferences. Need that instant gratification? Flip your settings to real-time and receive a notification every time a new subscriber is added. Too many notifications? Switch your setting to hourly, or daily.

    Simply enable push notifications in your app, and experiment with whatever settings feel right for you. Learn more about how to configure push notifications.

    Push notifications are shiny and new, but there’s even more to explore in AWeber Stats!

    Here are a few things you can do with Stats:

    • Look at list health with a complete subscriber count and overall open and click rate percentage for sent broadcasts.
    • View your open and click rates on individual one-time emails you've sent, as well as your complaint rates and unsubscribes.
    • Evaluate your open rates for each message in a follow-up series.
    • See your audience at-a-glance by easily viewing a subscriber’s name, email address, avatar (if available,) total opens, total clicks and the date and time of subscription.
    • Learn about your audience in greater detail by tapping a subscriber to see where they signed up, how many broadcasts they’ve received and their open rate and click rate percentages (based on the total messages delivered to their inbox).

    Take advantage of Stats today. Download for Android or iOS, install the app, and enter your AWeber username and password to get an instant overview of the email marketing metrics that matter to you.

  • Mon, 04 Dec 2017 19:24:08 +0000: The Top 7 Questions Everyone Has about Email List Segmentation - Email Marketing Tips

    As a member of AWeber’s award-winning Customer Solutions team, my teammates and I field more than 700 calls, emails and chats from customers every day. We answer questions about account setup, email marketing basics, best practices, content creation and website optimization.

    But one of the most popular topics we’re asked about: segmentation.

    That’s why I’ve compiled a list of the most commonly asked questions about segmenting your list. Let’s take it from the top.

    Want an email service provider with the #1 customer solutions team in the industry? Create your FREE trial account with AWeber today.

    1. What is segmentation?

    Segmentation is the process of separating your subscriber list into smaller, organized subgroups based on their interests, behaviors or characteristics.

    2. Why should I use segmentation?

    Your subscribers aren’t all the same. By segmenting, you can easily send them content they actually care about! This personalization can lead to higher open and click-through rates, lower unsubscribe rates, better deliverability and more conversions than non-segmented lists. In fact, segmented emails can drive up to 77 percent of your overall email ROI, according to the Direct Marketing Association.

    Here’s a simple way to think about it: Your master list of subscribers is a rainbow. Each color — or subgroup — wants to hear from you. However, blue may not want to read the same content as yellow. By segmenting your list, you can send targeted emails just to your blue subgroup or your yellow subgroup. Everyone is happy!

    3. Does segmenting my list mean people will miss out on my content?

    Technically, yes, but that isn’t a bad thing.

    Your subscribers want to be sent content that’s relevant to them. So if they signed up for info about basset hounds, you better not send them content about geckos.

    With segmentation, you no longer have to send generic messages to your email list and cross your fingers that some of your subscribers will be interested. Now, you can craft the right content for the right customers at the right times. Do this well, and it won’t take long for a customer to make a purchase.

    4. How does segmentation help grow my list?

    By separating your list into segments, you get to know and understand your customers. You can track a group’s click-through and open rates. Learn what subject lines a segment liked or hated. Or, figure out the best CTAs (calls to action) that lead to a purchase.

    All this individualized data will help you constantly hone and improve your content for a better customer experience. This helps build your reputation as a subject matter expert and solidifies your relationship with your subscribers.

    It’ll also help you bring in more prospects.

    For instance, you could use segmentation data to create more targeted lead magnets to draw in new subscribers.

    Let’s say you’re a digital marketer with a segmented list for readers who want info on “Facebook advertising.” Whenever you send an email about “Facebook video marketing” to that segment, however, your open and click-through rates go through the roof!

    Armed with this knowledge, you create a free webinar about Facebook video marketing and target people searching for info on Facebook advertising. Now, you’ve tapped into a whole new audience to consume your content.

    5. What information should I use to segment my list?

    Anything!

    You can segment your list using any subscriber data available to you. For instance, you could have a mailing list for people who want to receive messages in iambic pentameter every third Thursday of the month. If those are truly your readers’ preferences, segment away!

    But if you’re just getting started with segmentation, you probably want to break up your master list based on at least one of the following data points:

    • Demographics (age, hometown, location, job, gender)
    • Behaviors (purchase history, opens, click-throughs, website browsing)
    • Interests (hobbies, causes, opinions)
    • Entry point (sign up form, lead magnet, social media)
    • Email preferences (message time and frequency; mobile or desktop)
    • Skill level (beginner, intermediate, advanced)
    • Marketing funnel location (new customer, repeat customer)

    (For even more segmentation options, read 16 Ways to Segment Subscribers and Boost Engagement.)

    At AWeber, we rely heavily on “email preference” segmentation for some of our lead magnets. For example, our customers choose how often they’d like to receive emails during What to Write, a free course that teaches you how to craft engaging automated, survey and sale emails. The course sign up form allows people to select their email frequency:

    When you click on the “How often would you like to receive the lesson emails?” drop down menu, you can choose from the following options:

    Based on what you choose, you’ll receive the seven lessons at different frequencies. That means you can complete the course in three, seven or 14 days, depending on your schedule and time commitment.

    And since subscribers are tagged in AWeber based off their frequency choice on the course sign up form, we can then create segments from those tags and send targeted emails:

    For example, we could send an email exclusively to people who chose to receive one lesson email each day and ask them if they'd like to receive a different daily email course that we offer.

    6. Can I segment my list based on product purchases?

    Yes — and we highly recommend you do.

    Segmentation lets you cross-sell a customer other products they may be interested in. If he or she bought your training guide, follow up with them a few days later to say “thanks.” About a week later, send them a list of other similar training guides they may like.

    You can also upsell. At the time of purchase or right afterward, you can offer “premiums” or “exclusive memberships.” These add-ons increase the average revenue of each sale. The purchase shouldn’t be the end of your transaction with a customer — it should be the beginning.

    7. Can I use segmentation to see who is engaging with my content?

    Yes. In AWeber, you can automatically tag people if they click on a link in a message, open an email or visit an order page. Then, you can build segments based off tags or automatically deliver automated campaigns to subscribers with a specific tag. This lets you send targeted content to people based on where they are in your sales funnel.

    As you start building more complex funnels, a subscriber’s movements can become automated. They may switch from one automation series to another depending on what links they clicked, what emails they opened (or didn’t open) or what products they purchased (or didn’t purchase).

    You can also do this by checking in every few weeks with your customers to keep your segments up to date. Plus, it gives you even more data to work with. I recommend asking questions like:

    • What topic do you want to learn about next: basset hounds or geckos?
    • Do you have any additional questions about X, Y or Z?
    • Are you still enjoying a message from me every day? Yes or No?

    Segmentation is also a great way to see who is not engaging with your content. You can segment out your subscribers who haven’t opened an email in, say, six months with AWeber’s new Open Automations tool. Then you can try to win them back by triggering a re-engagement campaign. After all, it’s a lot less work to reach out to a current subscriber than it is to add a new one.

    To learn more, check out these great examples of re-engagement campaigns.

    Now it’s your turn. Are you using segmentation yet? If yes, how? If not, how do you plan to use it?

  • Fri, 01 Dec 2017 20:14:54 +0000: The Beginner’s Guide to Making Money with Email Marketing - Email Marketing Tips

    make money email marketing

    When it comes to making money online, the most powerful tool in your arsenal isn’t social media or SEO or paid search ads . . .  

    It’s email.

    Email marketing has the highest conversion rates of any marketing channel. In fact, sixty-six percent of online consumers made a purchase after receiving an email marketing message — which is more than social and direct mail, according to the Data & Marketing Association. And transactions from email are three times more profitable than those made on social media, reports the global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company.

    Want to start cashing in on the emails you’re sending out? Then follow these seven proven ways to monetize your email marketing.

    How to monetize email marketing

    1. Sell something!

    Already have a product or service to sell? Awesome! Skip this section.

    If not, this is your very first step. Find a physical or digital product or service to sell. Without a product to promote, it’ll be extremely difficult (dare I say, impossible) to make money with your email marketing efforts.

    Not sure what to sell? Here are some ideas to get you started:

    2.  Sell other people’s products

    You don’t always have to sell your products or services to monetize email marketing. Instead, you can be an affiliate for other businesses' products or services. As an affiliate, you get commissions from a business to send traffic to their site and generate sales. 

    Here’s an example of a great affiliate connection: An online business coach offers planning and operations advice to her clients. To help them turn her advice into reality, she recommends affiliate tools — like website hosting services and landing page providers — to serve her clients’ marketing and sales needs.

    Many companies have affiliate programs you can join — like AWeber! You can sign up for our affiliate program here

    One important note: Make sure you have a strong relationship with your subscribers and that you recommend products and services that clearly align with their interests. Otherwise, they may unsubscribe.

    3. Upsell premium or exclusive products

    In my opinion, one of the greatest opportunities for increasing revenue with email marketing is increasing your average transaction amount at the time of purchase a.k.a. upselling.

    Say you’re a life coach. Your main product is an online monthly membership that includes access to a community of users, webinars and a database of resources.

    A potential upsell: exclusive one-on-one coaching sessions. A participant can pick the topic they want you to focus on and ask questions they may not feel comfortable asking in a live webinar in a virtual room filled with other members. Many people will pay top dollar to get this individualized attention.

    Or it can be much simpler than that. If you’re an online personal trainer, you could offer a free downloadable upper-body workout. When someone requests it, they receive an automated email with the download — plus an upsell to a comprehensive 12-week program that guarantees them results.

    Here’s an example from the company Moo. The email tries to upsell customers on their new premium rounded corners feature.

    [caption id="attachment_85800" align="aligncenter" width="680"]make money email marketing source: http://reallygoodemails.com/promotional/featured-product/success-is-rounded-corner/[/caption]

    4. Cross-sell related products

    Every purchase a customer makes gives you insight into their likes and interests. You can use this info to entice them with other products they may also enjoy.

    In fact, you probably have an email in your inbox right now that reads, “Because you bought this, you might be interested in this.” That’s because online shoppers who get targeted messages based on previous shopping decisions may be more likely to purchase again.

    Here’s an example of a great cross-sell: A digital marketer offers a paid online course called “Learn How to Become a Master at Facebook Advertising.” Once a person completes the course, they're automatically sent an email that cross-sells another course — this time about Facebook video marketing.

    I recommend sending an automated email with additional recommendations approximately one to three weeks after a customer’s initial purchase. It’s super easy to set up targeted, automated email sequences like these in AWeber. Give it a try! Create your FREE account today.

    5. Get repeat purchases

    Along the same lines as cross-selling, you may have a product or service that calls for repeat purchases. Sometimes a friendly reminder email is an effective way to keep bringing in a steady stream of sales.

    This method to monetize email marketing works extremely well for businesses that rely on recurring, seasonal or perishable goods. For instance, a window cleaning service may email a client at the end of every season to remind them to schedule their next appointment.

    Another tip: Throw in a coupon. Offering a person 15 percent off their next cleaning may give them the boost they need to book another session.

    6. Have a cart abandonment plan

    We’re all a bit forgetful, so it’s no surprise that buyers often get distracted or step away from a purchase because they weren’t ready to buy at that moment. But if you’re using an e-commerce platform like WooCommerce, you know what they left behind.

    Now, you can automatically send highly relevant emails encouraging them to buy the product or service they were considering. Customers who received multiple abandoned shopping cart emails are 2.4 times more likely to complete the purchase than those who receive only one followup email, according to Experian. Try sending the first message one day after, a second message 48 hours after, and possibly a third message within three or four days of abandonment.

    Keep cart abandonment emails short. It doesn’t hurt if you inject some humor or personality to catch the reader’s eye. Check out this example from the clothing company Chubbies.

    [caption id="attachment_85801" align="aligncenter" width="667"]monetize email marketing Source: https://www.shopify.com/blog/12522201-13-amazing-abandoned-cart-emails-and-what-you-can-learn-from-them[/caption]

    And this example from the Dollar Shave Club that quickly reminds the person of all the benefits they’re missing out on by not joining.

    [caption id="attachment_85802" align="aligncenter" width="680"]monetize email marketing Source: Really Good Emails[/caption]

    You can even offer relevant information to help address questions or concerns they may have, or highlight your great customer service team. Many companies will throw in a discount to tempt you even further or create urgency with a limited-time offer.

    7. Ask people to spread the love!

    The last tactic I’ll write about is also one of the oldest marketing strategies: word of mouth!

    According to a Nielsen report, 84 percent of consumers say they either completely or somewhat trust recommendations from family, colleagues, and friends about goods and services. That makes personal recommendations the highest ranked source for trustworthiness when it comes to making a purchase.  

    So if you have an engaged, loyal customer base, send emails encouraging them to recommend your products and services to their friends and acquaintances. You can also go a bit further by asking them to give you positive online reviews and to “like” and share your social feeds.

    Think about implementing referral links to incentivize your subscribers to spread awareness about your brand, too. Referral links allow your current customers to promote trackable links for your business. In exchange for sending new paying customers your way, you can give them incentives like discounts, coupons, vouchers, cash, prizes or redeemable points.

    How to close the sale with email

    While all of these tactics are excellent ways to make money using email marketing, they’ll most likely fall flat without some killer email copy or content to win over your potential buyers. Check out our FREE What to Write course. You'll learn how to craft the perfect email for every layer of your funnel, and get 45+ email content templates to copy and paste. 

    Now it’s your turn. How are you using email marketing to sell your products or services?

  • Tue, 28 Nov 2017 21:43:20 +0000: Why You Should Delete a Bunch of Your Email Subscribers Right Now - Email Marketing Tips

    clean email list

    You built up your list of subscribers. Now it’s time to remove a bunch of them.

    Cleaning your email list can improve three key metrics: deliverability, open rates and click rates. The better these metrics, the more successful your email marketing campaign will be.

    That’s because a smaller list of engaged subscribers — people who actively read and interact with your content and brand — are more valuable than a larger list of subscribers who never open your content.

    In fact, lists with numerous inactive email addresses typically have higher rates of bounces, spam complaints and unsubscribes than ones that don’t.

    Plus, when you continue to send emails to people who don’t open them, internet service providers — like Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo — penalize you. Do this often enough, and your emails may end up in their spam folders, which decreases deliverability to people who actually want to read your content.

    So how often should you clean your email list? It’ll vary from list to list, but a good rule of thumb is every six months — and definitely not longer than a year.

    But wait! Before you delete, do this . . .

    Try a re-engagement campaign to win back inactive subscribers before you clean your email list. It’s a lot less work to reach out to a current subscriber than it is to add a new one. Fourteen percent of subscribers who receive win-back emails open them, according to a survey conducted by ReturnPath, an email deliverability company. That number jumps up to 45 percent for subsequent messages.

    (Check out examples of successful re-engagement campaigns here.)

    The great news: AWeber just launched an Open Automations tool. You can tag subscribers who don’t open your messages, and then automatically trigger a re-engagement campaign.

    Get a full rundown on how to use Open Automations in this video from AWeber’s Product Marketing Manager, Tom Tate:

    How to clean your email list

    If your inactive subscribers still aren’t biting after a re-engagement campaign, it’s time to say goodbye. Here's a step-by-step tutorial on how to delete inactive subscribers for all AWeber customers.

    (Not an AWeber customer yet? Create your FREE account today!)

    1. Hover over the Subscribers tab and click Manage Subscribers.

    2. Click the Select Field drop-down menu.

    3. Click No Opens from the select field options.

    4. Now, click the blank field to the right of No Opens and choose the date you'd like to search by. This will allow you to find all your subscribers who have not opened a message since that date. For instance, if you want to see who hasn't opened your message in the last 30 days, choose a date 30 days ago.

    Be sure to include another search term by clicking the + button. Choose Date Added, and
    date is before. Then pick the same date. This will ensure that newer subscribers who may not have gotten to your messages yet won't be lumped together with the rest of the long-time inactives.

    5. Click the Search button, then scroll down to see the list of subscribers who haven't opened your messages since the date you chose.

    6. To delete these subscribers, check the Erase box in the upper left of the list of subscribers to mark them all to be deleted, then click Delete to remove them from your list permanently.

    7. If you have multiple pages of subscribers, you can repeat this process to remove them all.

    Make a mistake? Don’t worry: AWeber’s award-winning customer service team can restore deleted addresses within 30 days. But you should always download your original list into a CSV ahead of time just to keep a record.
