Email marketing is a common tool used among the digital marketers to engage their customers and to sell products and services. If you know how to create a good newsletter, this free activity will give you several opportunities. But, how you can make sure that people will actually open and read it? Even though e-newsletters are one of the most common types of emails, they are actually some of the hardest things to do it right.
Here are some tips that can help you to create an excellent company newsletter:
Choose the target audience – Don’t just add every email you that collected to your subscribers list. You need to be sure that you are sending the newsletter to the right people. It’s important to engage with the receivers to have them open on the newsletter, read the content and take some actions. You don’t need the “mark-delete” kind of subscribers.
Choose what kind of newsletters that you want to send out – One of the biggest challenges with newsletters is that they’re often very confusing for the customers. They are unfocused if you are sending them every news of your company. You should know that people are not interested in everything of your business. Put yourself in their shoes and think about it: would you like to receive and read about this company Email that you are about to send out? If you don’t have something interesting to say, then don’t send a newsletter at all. In this case, it is always quality over quantity.
Make it less promotional – Yes, you send emails to promote your business. Chances are, your email newsletter subscribers don’t want to hear about your products and services 100% of the time. So, don’t make it 100% promotional. Your subscribers would love to read some educational content, advice, tips & tricks, and interesting facts etc. Otherwise, the constant selling may lead to many unsubscribes from those who are fed up with promotional emails in their inboxes.
Choose relevant images – The more interesting the photos, the more people will scroll the newsletter and continue reading. Include images that are eye-catchy, well designed and of course relevant to your content.
Insert Call-To-Action button – A CTA button is a great way to initiate an action from your customers. You can feature a CTA button on your newsletter that can direct visitors to your business page.
Create an interesting subject lines – The first thing we do in a busy morning, is to take a quick look at the subject of the emails or the headlines of the news websites. Having a worth-reading subject line or title is the first step for people to decide whether to open it or not. The point is, people don’t have much free time to click on every single Email. Choose the subject line wisely.
