Considering the myriad of online marketing strategies available to boost your business, one key player often overlooked is email marketing. Many businesses hesitate to engage in email marketing, presuming all such efforts are perceived as spam. However, this isn't necessarily the case, and steering clear of email marketing could result in missed opportunities and lost business.

By choosing not to leverage email marketing, you risk losing potential customers to competitors who utilize this powerful channel to reach a global audience. However, the cornerstone of any successful email marketing campaign is a well-curated email list. This article will explore some best practices and insights to help you understand what's acceptable and effective in email marketing.

How To Start An Email Marketing Campaign

Embarking on an email marketing journey to promote your business will inevitably lead to the challenge of creating an email list. This list, comprising of email addresses, is your gateway to delivering advertisements and promotional content. One prevalent method to gather email addresses is to buy a list from a distributor. However, this approach is generally ineffective and not recommended.

Businesses often encounter issues when buying an email list as there's no guarantee that the individuals on the list are interested in your products or services. Understanding your audience is vital - while the goal is to reach a broad audience, it's equally important that this audience aligns with your target market.

Buying an email list might put your message in front of a few interested parties, but this is largely coincidental. It's worth noting that SPAM is highly discouraged in email marketing. The FTC can impose substantial fines on businesses that violate CAN-SPAM laws.

Internet users tend to swiftly discard what they perceive as spam, often without opening or even reading the emails. Some Internet Service Providers use spam filters that could automatically delete your emails if they are deemed as spam. These filters use intricate algorithms on the subject line and email content to weed out spam, which means your email marketing efforts could end up being futile if most recipients never receive or read your messages.

Instead, a more effective way to curate an email distribution list for your marketing campaign is by inviting current and potential customers to sign up on your website for more information and regular updates about your products, services, and other relevant topics. This method ensures you're building a list of individuals genuinely interested in your offerings and eager to know more.

Nurturing Your List: How to turn subscribers into buyers

Once you've established an interested subscriber base, you can send emails or distribute e-newsletters to your list members. These communications should include valuable information, subtle sales pitches, and compelling examples like Whirlpool's "Service Reminders" campaign, Home Depot's "DIY Tips and Guides" campaign, and Molly Maid's "Seasonal Cleaning Checklists" campaign.

These successful campaigns leveraged segmentation, personalization, and timing to engage their audience and encourage desired actions, providing a win-win situation of increased customer satisfaction and company revenue.

Your content should also feature useful links to your website or other sites that your subscribers might find interesting. Include a call-to-action in your content that motivates the reader to take specific steps, such as making a purchase or exploring a product in more depth. This strategic approach will help you build a robust email marketing campaign that effectively attracts and retains customers.
