For better or worse, the ongoing pandemic has caused Marketing Professionals to step back and reassess the way they’re doing business—both in their adaptational abilities and the way they handle what challenges the future will present for them.
Email has long been a mainstay function between brands and those who buy them. There are indications that the sturdy, “old” standby workhorse is ideally positioned to reassert itself as a viable marketing vehicle. Though it may appear somewhat staid in the face of flashier, more modern applications, Email still has much to offer when it comes to connecting with customers, and the fact that it’s a traditionally less expensive option just contributes to its attractiveness. When executed effectively and creatively as part of a refining strategy, Email can forge strong customer relationships and enhance the bottom line. Here are a few key ways it can work to your company’s advantage…throughout 2021, and far into the future.
Email is a personal medium, one that prioritizes the needs of the individual. Optimum Email programs balance the goals of business with the needs of the end-user. Today, it’s more vital than ever to employ data to drive your marketing, and Email is the ideal vehicle to make that happen. Thought-provoking subject lines can grab attention, compelling copy can explain (as it entertains and enlightens), and an attractive offer can clinch the sale.
Use your corporate insight to drive the content. When you construct a thoughtful Email marketing timeline—keeping a watchful eye on insights and trends—you’ll take advantage of all the opportunities that 2021 has to offer. Watch how customers behave; look for ways to foster goodwill, through community engagement, but by all means keep your message authentic. Are there avenues where you can expand your innovations? There’s much opportunity in building brand loyalty by offering innovative incentives. Be the reliable advisor your customers have come to appreciate, but let them know you’re ready to explore bold new paths that just might work to their advantage.
Work at realizing how scale can contribute to success. Traditionally, Email has a reputation for being as meaningful as it is intimate and personal. As Email enjoys its resurgence, a brand needs to make the best use of available technology. Historically, a brand that performs best is one that creates customer involvement and synchronizes that bond by stressing what the customer considers important.
Monitor your email performance over time, as opposed to via episodes in isolated silos. Now is the time to significantly shift the way you evaluate the performance of your Emails. When you realize that emphasizing the criticality of time-aperture analysis, you’ll understand that the number of clicks is not as important as the engagement you build over time. Those interactions eventually translate to lasting customer-client bonds that deliver interaction—and increase sales.
