Email continues to be an essential part of daily business and consumer interaction.

Since an email account (i.e. email address) is required to sign up to any form of online activity, it  is essential to the overall Internet experience including social networking or any presence on the Internet.

Over the years, email marketing strategies have changed, although effective email marketing is still key to any marketing strategy. The best online marketers use email.


Why do the Best Online Marketers Use an Email Marketing Strategy?

Because it produces results. Email marketing technology has advanced in that the software is becoming more powerful, and advanced features are now more accessible due to the growing number of affordable options on the market.

One email marketing trend that’s really taken off is the use of AI (Artificial Intelligence).

AI tools have come a long way recently. You can use them to help create subject lines, calls-to-action and content which can produce a substantial boost in campaign results.

With AI, after you’ve created your email marketing campaign, you can opt to have it sent at a specific time and on a certain day or you can use the “send at the best time” feature.

You do not have to send all your emails at the same time nor should you always be selling. Just send a few that offer tips or something that may be of interest, then send one offering one of your products or services for sale.

Another aspect of AI is personalization of emails.


Why Personalization?

Personalization can increase open rates. If people see their name in an email they’re more likely to open and read it, thus giving you an opportunity to follow up with them which can lead to more income.

When it comes to personalization you can complement your email with tools like live chat, SMS, push and more. You can do research and find the tools with the options that fit your needs.

While personalizing your emails, you may also want to use segmentation.


Segmentation

If you are expanding or want to grow your business you might consider using CRM (Customer Relations Management) software instead of spreadsheets. CRM works like a task manager. While using a spreadsheet you may track:

Name
Email Address
Phone Number
Type of customer
Date of purchase


With CRM you can start with an email address and add the things already mentioned plus whatever else you want such as:

Lead scoring (A feature that enables you to have a more complete view of how clients are interacting with you.)
Multiple contacts
Notes
Current sales stage of customers and prospects
and more


Make your emails engaging and offer good quality content and solutions to problems. Do not email just to introduce new products or services. No one will want to open them until they’re ready to know what you’re selling or they’re ready to make a purchase.

Make sure there’s a strong reason to open your emails, regardless of whether you’re selling something or not.


How?

Be sure your emails are valuable to your reader in and of themselves.

Include relevant educational content like tips and inspiration to maintain subscribers’ interest, while building trust in your product or service. When collecting signups set expectations from the beginning by pointing out the value you’ll offer. Then, stick to that promise and you’ll grow a list of engaged subscribers to convert when the time is right.

So, in order to have effective email marketing your strategy must be well planned and include the tools you need for efficiency and effectiveness. Be personable, informative and engaging in your emails. Set expectations from the start, keep your promise,  and build trust.
