A single search about marketing tips will result in thousands of posts. So how are you supposed to know which ones to look at? Let’s distill these tips into a few up-to-date practices that you should start doing, keep doing, or stop altogether.
I’m Shane Phair, Senior VP of Marketing at Campaign Monitor, and this is The Email Minute.
Today, let’s look at 3 things you should keep doing with your email marketing.
So first: keep segmenting whenever possible. Hopefully you’re already segmenting the basics, like demographics. Keep at it, and experiment by segmenting what was clicked, what was purchased, or what actions they took on your website or in your app. After all, segmented campaigns can lead to a 760% increase in revenue. That sounds pretty worth it to me.
Next, keep personalizing. 61% of marketers say they’re personalizing at least one in four emails – but that just means there’s plenty more personalization to go around. Connect your data sources, analyze what you have, and keep giving your subscribers a personalized experience. Your revenue will thank you for it.
Finally, keep designing for phones. Mobile usage is constantly increasing – especially when it comes to reading emails. And this doesn’t just have to do with having a mobile version of your email – make your messages easily scannable on any screen, and you’ll see a major lift in readership and click through.
