Email is not dead!
It’s still one of the most effective ways for marketers to reach their audience. So it’s important that your company has an email marketing strategy in place just in case customers want to give online shopping a try this holiday season. Here are 10 tips on how you can maximize your sales with email campaigns:
Make sure emails have some personalization while also maintaining brand voice/style . This means using first names when possible, specific details about what they’ve purchased from you before (e.g., “We hope the new sneaker release goes well!”), and including images that will be relevant to a customer’s interests.
Be strategic with your timing
Don’t go heavy on sending out emails too early. As you might risk annoying customers who are trying not to buy anything until the holidays! On the other hand, don’t send them too late if they’ve already purchased their gifts and want nothing else from you at that point. It can come off as quite pushy or desperate for sales.
Include CTAs throughout your campaigns instead of just one big CTA at the end . This way people won’t feel “sold” all holiday long. Multiple opportunities for visitors and prospects alike to click through will help increase traffic and sales faster than having everything funnel back into one final call-to-action email.
Include a sense of urgency
One way to do this is by mentioning when something will go on sale or be available for purchase let them know it’s time they buy! Another easy tip is including countdown clocks for limited-time promotions/sales. People love feeling like there’s a race against the clock, and that can help increase sales in addition to conversions.
Keep it short & sweet
Keep emails under 300 words if possible , as anything beyond that probably won’t get read thoroughly anyway (especially during busy shopping seasons)! In terms of design, make sure your email looks good even without images enabled. Otherwise customers might think it’s not worth their time reading or seeing what you have to offer. If text gets too small, it’s usually an automatic deal breaker.
Penguin Random House
Their strategy was to give away a free book each day starting on Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday . Then once customers had downloaded one, they would automatically get sent more deals and ads about Penguin books/authors via email within the next several days.
