Using Humour In An Email Marketing Campaign

The film Gattaca had four letters, ATGC, highlighted on posters and the title sequence. I found it graphically jarring. I was told later, by a rather smug IT-type, the letters were, pause for a little titter, the initials of the building four blocks of DNA, and the design was rather ‘clever’. It seemed I was … READ MORE »

How To Choose A Voice For A Marketing Email

You don’t use the same tone of voice to speak with all of your friends, relatives and colleagues. It would be inappropriate. You tend to be serious in the office, especially when your contract is up for renewal. With friends, you’ll be more light-hearted. Not perhaps quite so jovial when discussing the appalling performance of … READ MORE »

Research Can Improve Your Email Marketing

In-depth research is a great method to improve performance. It is expensive, so it’s much better if someone else does it for you. Recent, well supported, research shows that the best wordage for an email marketing campaign is between 75 and 100 words. You should treat the research of others with care, especially if you … READ MORE »

Make Your Email Campaigns Stand Out

Are your marketing emails predictable? Does the new one look just like the last one? When’s the last time you experimented?  The probable answer is that there is a certain sameness to your emails. Why should you be different? I view dozens of marketing emails each week and the most depressing thing is that they … READ MORE »

Design Email Campaigns For Your Subscribers

  Way back, when I was in art college, we were given the task of coming up with poster ideas for the redevelopment of a local town’s market square. You might think, correctly, that this was way before targeting by splitting email marketing lists, but my lack of precision as to audience got my original design … READ MORE »

Do you know what particular words and phrases your customers respond to best? More importantly, have you segmented your email marketing list to take this into account? How to ensure that the words and phrases you use in the body of the email relate to the specific subscriber might seem all but impossible, but we have … READ MORE »

Soft Selling In Your Marketing Campaigns

  I was once on a course that had nothing to do with sales and email marketing. It was all about questioning techniques. The biggest problem for anyone engaged in interviews is trying to get to the truth and we were introduced to a number of methods of, they said, getting the person to open … READ MORE »

Hide Adverts And Click-Throughs In Full Sight

I’ve stored an advert to subscribe to an email marketing list for a little over nine months. It was in an enewsletter, with a hotlink to a landing page for ‘regular offers of products, often at a reduced price’. Whilst I didn’t expect to be offered anything I particularly wanted, I thought I’d give it … READ MORE »

The Blessing Of Autoresponders

The blessing of autoresponders is that, once they are set up, all the work is done for you, apart from reviewing it periodically to ensure everything is going well. Whether it will be a success or not will depend on the way you’ve planned it. It need not take long, but it will take application. There are … READ MORE »

Perfect Stock Image For Your Email Campaign

The cheapest method of sourcing images for email marketing campaigns is to take them yourself or have your staff do so, for suitable reward one hopes. You’ll eventually have quite a few to choose from, although, of course, they’ll lack that bit of professionalism you want to encourage. If you’ve got the budget, you might … READ MORE »
