  8. 8. Email Marketing Benefits • Inform/Educate • Talk about your company, product or service • Stay in front of your audience • Establish yourself as an expert • Build relationships and trust • Drive traffic back to your website 7/11/2020 www.bWyse.com 8 Why bother?

  9. 9. Email Best Practices • The FROM email address and the SUBJECT LINE are extremely important! (Company Name) (Call to Action to get email opened!) 7/11/2020 www.bWyse.com 9 The FROM Email and the SUBJECT LINE are the two most important parts of your email. • These two items determine if someone is going to OPEN your email and read it. • Your FROM Email Address tells the reader who is sending the email to them. Do they know you? Should they be opening emails from you? • Use your company name • People remember company names more easily than names of people • Company names typically get more opens that names of people • Your Subject Line tells people what to expect in the email • Can Spam law states the subject line MUST match the content of the email • Ie) You Won, or It's Free - but the email contents isn't about that. WENDY – DO NOT GO INTO CAN SPAM HERE … We cover that in detail 9
  10. 10. LATER ON • Be creative, and write subject lines that will inspire people to want to open your email • 40 - 50 characters (some programs limit the size of the subject line) • Don't use all caps - but one word in all caps is ok • Avoid overusing punctuation WENDY – Reference the Email Blast Example Document… from address & subject line • Subject Line Tips Include: • If you're targeting a location, use that in the subject line "Great News for Seattleites!" • Pose a question in your subject - increases open rates • Shorter subject lines perform better … keep it under 50 characters • Add Call to Action in your subject line • Convey a sense of urgency or timeliness • Be specific - tell readers what to expect 9
  11. 11. Email Best Practices • Write a compelling Pre-header • Include lots of Links • Use Images to visually entice readers 7/11/2020 www.bWyse.com 10 Other elements that are important include: • Pre-header - (the first line of text in your email) • Some email programs pull this text into the subject line • Gmail, MacMail & MobilePhones use pre-header text • More mobile devices are displaying the pre-header text right below the subject line. • Make the content of the pre-header different than the subject line • Provide more compelling info to entice readers to open the email WENDY – Reference the Email Blast Example Document … bWyse – PRE- HEADER • Links - What are you trying to get people to do? What's your goal? • Use LOTS of links to get the readers to take your desired action! • Give your recipients lots of opportunity to get to your website • Use “READ MORE” links - Couple lines of text + read more link • Make your emails more social by including a link to SHARE on Twitter or Facebook 10
  12. 12. • Use call to action buttons - Buttons get more clicks!! • Distinguish your call to action by color, placement or text … to make it easily stand out WENDY – Reference the Email Blast Example Document … Garlic Jim’s - LINKS • Images - Engage your audience and increase users taking action • Images make your email more interesting and compelling • Think about what your audience sees when they look at your email • Images will break up blocks of text making it easier to read • Brand with your LOGO! Your email will look more professional • Turn your images into Links - Readers EXPECT images to be clickable!! • Product images • Images of your events • Balance of text/image • 75/25 rule applies here. (may vary by industry … ie) art gallery will have more images • Keep it balanced … too many images, or images that are too large, are spam filter triggers • Break up your email into sections • Use bullets to make it easier to scan 10
  13. 13. WENDY – Reference the Email Blast Example Document … Luke’s Automotive- IMAGES 10
  14. 14. Email Best Practices • Write Interesting Content – What's your story? – Put your audience first – Content is MORE than just words … 7/11/2020 www.bWyse.com 11 Write Interesting Content WENDY – Reference the Email Blast Example Document… Garlic Jim’s – INTERESTING CONTENT • What's your story? • People want to know what's up behind the scene • Be conversational and informational (avoid sales pitches!) • Don't be too promotional • Simple and straight to the point • Put your audience first • What are your readers expecting to receive?? • Match email content with reader's expectations • What's their pain … and how can you help them relieve it • Your readers must desire your content • They must invite you into their circle of trust 11
  15. 15. • The best marketers and salespeople are storytellers • Content is MORE than just words … • Images • Videos - still tricky … screen shot the video & link to where the video is hosted • Live & recorded demos • User generated - quotes, testimonials 11
  16. 16. Sending Emails … Strategies • Test & Check your email before you send it out • Keep Mobile users in mind • When to send … general practices • Saturdays and Sundays … highest opens, most clicks, more transactions, and bigger revenues • Monday … highest revenues per email • Friday … highest click through rates 7/11/2020 www.bWyse.com 12 • Test & Check your email before you send it out • Don't use all caps too much (only for emphasis, occasionally) • Don't use too many different colors • Font size should be at least 14 point … but larger is better) • Do not copy into your editor from MS Word … the MS Word code is a spam filter trigger • Create a test list - send to yourself • Use gmail, outlook, hotmail, yahoo accounts - to see how your recipients will view your emails • Keep Mobile users in mind • As much as 65% of emails are opened on Mobile devices • Use a one column format for mobile • Large buttons for call to action • When to send … general practices • B2C - best responses occur on nights and weekends 12
  17. 17. • Later mid-morning / early afternoons increases opens • Best times/days to send can vary by industry or audience - B2B vs. B2C … however, in general the following applies: • Saturdays and Sundays … highest opens, most clicks, more transactions, and bigger revenues • Monday … highest revenues per email • Friday … highest click through rates • Researchers indicate, the responses have changed … could be due to the fact that fewer emails are sent during these time frames • For example for years the studies reflected the best day to send was Tuesdays … Everyone started sending on Tuesdays and that has diluted the opens, clicks and conversions. • Don’t send it out on Tuesdays!! 12
  18. 18. Avoiding Spam Triggers • Follow the 2003 Can-Spam Law – CAN-SPAM - Controlling the Assault of Non- Solicited Pornography And Marketing – Never use deceptive headers, from-names, reply-tos, or subject lines. – You must always provide an unsubscribe link. – Remove recipients from your list within 10 business days. – The unsubscribe link must work for at least 30 days after sending. – You must include your physical mailing address. 7/11/2020 www.bWyse.com 13 • Follow the 2003 Can-Spam Law http://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/can-spam-act-compliance- guide-business • If you’re sending commercial email (selling or promoting stuff): • Always DO these things: • Do include your valid physical postal address in every email you send out. • Do provide a clear and obvious way to opt out of every email you send out, and honor the unsubscribe within 10 business days. • Do use clear "From," "To," and "Reply to" language that accurately reflects who you are. This applies to the person or business sending the message, as well as the domain name and email address. 13
  19. 19. • DON'T ever do these things: • Don't sell or transfer any email addresses to another list. • Don't make it hard to unsubscribe from emails. • You cannot • charge a fee • require a recipient to provide personally identifying information beyond an email address • make recipients take extensive steps other than simply replying to an email or visiting a single page on a website to unsubscribe themselves from your emails. • Don't use deceptive subject lines in your emails that misrepresent the contents of your message. 13
  20. 20. Email Platforms • Mailerlite - www.mailerlite.com • Mail Chimp - http://mailchimp.com/ • Constant Contact -www.constantcontact.com 7/11/2020 www.bWyse.com 14 There are tons of email programs to use to send bulk emails. • They each have minor pros and cons … at the end of the day, base your decision on: • Ease of Use – It is easy for you to manage subscribers and create emails? • Your Budget – What can you afford to spend? • The three platforms most used by smaller businesses are: • Mailerlite • Mail Chimp • Constant Contact 14
