Has The Behaviour Of Our Subscribers Changed

I can’t have been the only person searching the Internet using ‘how has email marketing changed during the pandemic’, reading a few of those presented, and then wondering how this affects us in general, and of course, me in particular. We are all selfish when it comes to business. We should be. In trying to work … READ MORE »

Don’t Tell Your Subscribers To Look Elsewhere

I’m firmly of the opinion that you can learn more from what you do right than from email marketing mistakes, and looking at the methods of those companies that have been successful is the way to go. Mind you, sometimes you just have to highlight the errors. At the end of November, I received an … READ MORE »

Is It Worth Jumping On The Bandwagon?

Bandwagon is normally used as a pejorative. It contains contempt for those who can’t think for themselves and instead merely follow others. There was a talk by a chap who thought he’d cracked the system when, in a previous recession, competing shops around his closed, leaving him as the only retail outlet selling his particular … READ MORE »

There Are Risks To Over-Egging Subject Lines

I sincerely hope it is obvious that I indulge in a great deal of research on email marketing, as well as other related forms of marketing. I actually enjoy researching. In fact, I get easily sidetracked and an hour or more can go past where I’ve wandered off onto other subjects just because I found … READ MORE »

Should You Go For A Humorous Subject Line?

Sir Robert Mark was the first Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police to work his way up from a foot-patrolling constable to the top police job in the country, a fact that he was, quite rightly, proud of. He certainly repeated it often enough. He suggested to his publisher that the title of his autobiography should … READ MORE »

Ensuring Your Subject Lines Stand Out

Moving on, Amazon email marketing is not an unending source of inspiration, but then they probably feel they don’t have to be as the … READ MORE »

Pre-header Text Is The Cinderella Of Email

You might well have noticed a certain lack of professionalism regarding the use of pre-headers in email marketing being shown by the giants in the business. Yet their effective use can, and probably will, increase open rates dramatically. If you don’t plan your pre-headers carefully you are losing sales and therefore profits. I know I … READ MORE »

Don’t Abandon Trusted Methods

  That there are testing times ahead for everyone in email marketing is probably an understatement. ‘Probably’ is even a little doubtful as there’s no doubt we are all going to have to be at our sharpest in the weeks to come. At least it’ll be exciting. What we must not do is to abandon … READ MORE »

What Voice To Use For Worried Subscribers

What to say on your marketing emails and enewsletters is, as always, down to what your data dictates. How to say it might have changed. The Coronovirus pandemic has, it seems, changed just about everything else. However, there are some dos and don’ts. The first thing to do is not mention Coronovirus, and never, ever … READ MORE »

Coronavirus Mistakes In Email Marketing

Your inbox is probably full of marketing emails which, like mine, have a Subject Line that includes the word Coronavirus. I’d count mine, but what’s the point? There are so many that it seems pointless to open one, apart from to use as a basis for a blog. One of the most irritating mistakes in … READ MORE »
