Email marketing is the most cost-effective marketing channel returning about $38 for every $1 spent. Having worked with more than 1000 retailers in the past year, it’s also one of the most underutilised tools.
1. Welcome Email Series 📧
- Email 1 – a thank you email, which creates awareness.
- Email 2 – “about us” which drives consideration.
- Email 3 – is all about the purchase that creates conversion.
2. Abandon Cart Series 🛒
You spend all that time and money trying to get customers to your cart, and then, according to Baymard research, 69.57% will abandon it. This is why the abandon cart series is essential.
3. Lifecycle Emails 🔁
These are regular emails sent weekly, fortnightly, or monthly to remind your customers that you exist.
Effective email strategy should include:
- A killer headline (Killer Headline Suggestions)
- Engaging preview text
- Short paragraphs
- Social proof
- Clear call to actions (the number of emails I get that don’t have a buy button or a book button literally drives me insane!) – it’s like having a meeting with no agenda or no outcome, we’ve all been there, and we all know it is a complete waste of time!
Easter and Mother’s Day is slowly creeping up, and it’s time to start planning your email campaigns!
If you need any help grow your digital channels, get you set up online, or create content that connects, please do not hesitate to reach out, book a strategy session or a call with me.
City of Sydney Reboot Series
I am pretty honored to be selected by the City of Sydney and The NSW Government to pull together a series of FREE webinars focused on digital skills, growing customers, and brand. The 9 webinars will provide inspiration, practical tips and examples for retail and hospitality owners, startups, creatives, and professional services.
The lineup is insane, and I am so grateful to friends and colleagues for giving their time to educate and give back to small businesses. What I personally love about this panel is that we have an extremely diverse group of great minds and thinkers (it’s not just about culture or gender). This is what a diverse and inclusive panel looks like and sounds like!
