Do not assume that all forms of marketing via email are spam. You should work toward creating email campaigns which the customer not only enjoys looking at, but will also act upon. Read on to find great tips and secrets to create a campaign which works.

Use a couple of different subject lines to test which one has a better response. Take one of your emails, and divide the mailing list in two. Send each half of the list the same mail, but with differing subject lines. You will learn which subject lines have the best open rates and which ones people ignore.

TIP! Use A/B testing to test subject line variations. Split the mailing list in half.

Do your best to keep your email message personal. If you send emails which the reader identifies with, they will be more apt to buy from your company. As an example, if you happen to know the reason they signed up for your emails, then be sure to include something about that in your email.

Don’t include anyone on your marketing email list who hasn’t asked to be there. Your emails will appear to be spam to those who are unfamiliar with your company. They will wonder if they know you and whether or not they care about what you’re offering. This most likely will lead them to throw your email in the trash, which in turn just wasted your efforts.

Always remember that you should be using email marketing to sell services and products. With that in mind, each email needs to be crafted to entice the reader to buy. Share new product information, coupons, discounts and new promotions with your readers.

TIP! The primary reason for email marketing is to lead customers to purchase your products or services. This means that all of the emails are just steps towards a reader purchasing from you.

Double and triple proof your emails before you hit the “send” button. Accuracy is important in all forms of correspondence, including emails and newsletters. Before you ever hit “send,” test your email layout to ensure your satisfaction with the way it looks. If you have put any links in your emails, make sure they are able to be clicked.

To make your customers enjoy getting your emails, provide them with discounts and also promotions that are only available to those on the mailing list. This form of email promoting not only gives your readers a real value for their participation, but also encourages them to refer friends. In fact, a referral program is a great way to grow both your email base and your customer base.

Sending an email to your list more than once every seven days is a bad idea. Most likely, your customers receive a bunch of messages a day. If you send too many messages, you will just become part of the clutter. They may begin skipping them, or worse, deleting them without ever reading!

TIP! Limit yourself to sending only one email message each week. Your customer base is likely made up of people who are busy and receive many messages each day.

Keep your viewers in the forefront of your mind when thinking about what you just read, so you can go out and create a campaign that works. What would they like to see? What reading material would interest them? How can you develop these ideas into things that are also financially beneficial to you? Implement the tips found here to get started in the right direction.
