You’ve got a solid email list. And a great email marketing strategy for turning sends into sales. But every email list could be bigger. And every unsubscribe list could be smaller. The key is to put those unsubscribed email addresses to work for you with a campaign to win back unsubscribers. The catch? You can’t email someone who already opted out of your list.

How To Lower Your CPL With A Win Back Campaign

resubscribe win back campaign

The old adage “it costs less to keep a customer than convert a new one” is still true today. But what about a former customer who has unsubscribed from your list? You might think it would take more time and money to resubscribe and resell to them than to an unknown user. After all, they actively opted out of your list at some point! Perhaps they have a reason to dislike you or no longer need your product? On the other hand, an unknown user has no history with you, and no pre-conceived ideas to block their path to purchase. It sounds reasonable, but we’ve actually seen that previously unsubscribed users are easier to resubscribe and often more likely to convert than a new lead. They’re easier to target, too. You just need a strategic win back campaign.

Why You Need to Consider Your Lead Nurturing CPL

lead nurturing CPL

Ask any marketer running a lead generation campaign and they will probably agree that lowering Cost Per Lead, or CPL, is always on their mind. For some it’s the ultimate goal, while others may consider it secondary to quality leads and recognize that some leads simply cost more. Still, no one wants to pay more when they can get the same leads for less. How low your CPL can be is based on a variety of factors, including industry, size of desired audience, and targeting methodology. But many look at CPL as strictly a measurement of the cost to acquire leads, and nothing else. This can provide an incomplete picture of your lead generation efforts and prevent you from fully optimizing your campaign. To truly measure actual cost per lead, you need to develop a lead nurturing CPL that measures past acquisition and tracks performance.

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.
