Infographic: Lead Nurturing Email Optimization

lead nurturing email

Email is one of the most powerful tools at a marketer’s disposal. It’s a highly personal way of reaching people at home, and often quite literally in the palm of their hand. Depending on how robust your database is, you’ll also be able to include personal details, such as their name, location, last purchase, and other preferences. A lead nurturing email campaign can be especially powerful. A series of lead nurturing emails will pull leads through the funnel, using contextual clues, demographic data and retargeting to trigger emails based around intent and action. When executed correctly, a well-timed lead nurturing email can decrease the time to purchase and convert leads into customers.

resubscribe email addresses

Everyone has an unsubscribe list. Customers get tired of a full inbox and conduct a “spring cleaning” of their email subscriptions, or they sign up for a seasonal reason and opt-out after. Perhaps they think they can simply search for content or offers online and haven’t seen the value of staying on your email list. Whatever the reason, you’ve got a list of unsubscribes you can’t do anything with. Or can you? With opt-in advertising, you can win those subscribers back and resubscibe email addresses to your list.

5 Tips To Improve Email Deliverability

improve email deliverability

For many marketers, the ultimate question during a lead nurturing campaign is “how often should I send an email?” But if your email deliverability is low, your email frequency won’t matter. Deliverability is the percentage of emails that make it into a valid Inbox, ready to be opened. They don’t bounce, get lost in a Spam folder, or lead to an unsubscribe.

The rampant amount of junk mail and scam emails has led to increasingly strict standards for email deliverability. While this is good news overall, it can be tricky to navigate all the rules when you’re setting up an email campaign. We’ve put together a few tips to help ensure your emails aren’t incorrectly categorized as Spam. Follow these five tips to help improve email deliverability, as well as open rate.

Should You Switch To Single Opt-In For Email Marketing?

single opt-in email

We’re big proponents of double opt-in email marketing, which requires an initial welcome email to validate a user’s email address and allow them a second chance to “opt out.” New subscribers to your email marketing list need to click the link in this welcome email to confirm they would like to join the list. After that, your email marketing efforts continue as usual.

If you’re sending emails to customers or leads, you’ve probably heard of MailChimp. They’re a well-known email service provider that facilitates email campaigns for businesses of all sizes. They offer helpful email marketing tips and a wide array of service levels to fit just about every business owner’s needs. Some might even say they are the “gold standard” of Email Service Providers. Another claim to fame? Double opt-in.
