Email marketing can be a very successful tool as long as you are willing to put the work into doing it properly. You just may be wondering what you can do to increase the sales that you are getting through email marketing, have you heard the money is in the list? Here are some tips that might be able to help.

Your Subject Line

Your subject line is incredibly important so you need to think about it when creating one. You need to be sure that it is going to grab people's attention otherwise you run the risk of people not opening your emails. You need to come up with something that just screams open me now, otherwise, your email marketing campaign will be useless.

Think About Personalizing Your Email

From the subject line of the email message itself, and taking the time to personalize your emails will greatly increase the chances of your emails being read; Personalizing your email is going to show members of your email list that you are truly interested in them and that you are not simply treating them as just a way to make some money.



You Message is Important

You need to grab your readers attention quickly with your emails as people want to get their attention quickly. You want to be able to engage them in the first paragraph of your email. If you are unable to do this, you will have a lot of people unsubscribing from your email list, and yes, you will need some skills with email marketing, and being able to copywrite your way to success will be very important if you want to succeed using email marketing methods.

Create a Killer Call to Action

Your call to action is another important part of your email and will probably be one of the most essential pieces of your email when it comes to increasing sales. You want to make sure that you have a simple and easy-to-understand call to action that grabs people's attention at the same time. Make people feel like they need to follow what you are recommending to them.

Increasing sales through email marketing can seem difficult however if you have a solid plan put in place you will see that it is simpler than you think.

They say about 8 percent buyers buy through the email they receive in their inbox. Well, it is not a great number, however, it is still good because the sales are happening despite email marketing being labeled as spam.

depending on what you're offering, then email marketing will have far better results, then an unknown visitor that may just be visiting your e-commerce site, and that is because those that signed up to your mailing list will somewhat interested in what you are selling, and that is why you always hear something like "the money is in the list."

Emailing marketing is no different from other marketing methods, even though your buyers on your list may be hot, then there is still tons of A/B Testing that needs to be done. There is no such thing as setting up a list and think you will be able to convert them without putting in any effort.

When people get into email marketing, then their first mistake is trying to pitch their email list, then you can not figure out why your email list is not converting the way you want it too, so you may have to hire a copywriter that can create emails that have been proven to convert, as these copywriters will know what it takes for you to make that sale, and should never-ever pitch your list. You always need to offer information that has value, by doing this, you will have a greater chance of making a sale.

as far as being labeled as spam, then this has a lot to do with the email provider. If you are using Amazon to send your emails, then he would not be marked for small. If you are using a low-quality mailing list provider, then your email has a greater chance of going into your client's spam bucket, and that is because they have not be approved or whitelisted.

If you are planning your own self-hosted mailing list, then I would use the following:

Sendy:

Amazon SES:
https://aws.amazon.com/ses/

You can use newsletter providers, however, you will pay a fortune for them over time, or you can self-host your own newsletter, then when you send out your massive newsletter, then you send them through Amazon for dirt cheap.

Email marketing becomes effective only when...
you build the list from the people genuinely interested in your business
you provide valuable content
you promote products that your subscribers are genuinely interested
you have a big list

Generally I delete most of the unsolicited e-mails as spams, just because many of them are not interesting to me or I am not fit as their customer! So I simply delete them. So in my opinion one must select the list carefully before sending a mail to see if the person whom the message is being sent is a prospective buyer or not!

It can help but as I don't like someone spamming my emails, So I don't recommend this method and it's highly unlikely that most will be interested in it.

The most difficult part in email marketing is building email list. There are sellers who sell email list. However, this kind of email list does not work because you don't know whether the people in the list are interested in the products and services you are promoting. Building email list takes a lot of time, if you want to build a genuine list

That is true! Today I had a e mail that my loan is ready and I can have it any moment, when I opened the mail they wanted my details! This is a poor way of marketing and I will delete such mails without giving a second thought next time. It is really important to have targetted customers for for business to email them personally.

Email marketing converts only if you send the marketing emails to the right person. If someone starts sending me emaisl about gaming, I will delete without checking. I am not interested in gaming. However, if someone sends me emails about digital marketing, I might check the emails. Therefore, sending emails to the right person is very important.

Yes, targeting the proper customers is very important as e mail marketing is like personal marketing where we are interacting with a customer personally in the mail! So it is a must to have appropriate lit of the person with us before sending e mails to them to convert them as our customers!

The problem is how do we build email list with the people actually interested in our products and services. We can of course capture the leads through our website, however, it is a long process.

Email marketing has high conversion rate. But this will happen only when your emails reach the appropriate inbox. If you send emails to people who did not subscribe your newsletter, your emails will reach spam folder.

yes, building a list is very difficult. I have managed to create a list from the emails of the commentators on my blog. The list includes about 500 emails. However, I am yet to start email campaign.

I think 500 emails is already a good start. You say you built this list from the comments on your blog, which means the people in your list might be interested in your list because they have already visited your site

You might be right, however, I am quite not sure if the people who have left comments on my blogs are alctually interested in reading my marketing emails. Maybe I should provide something free with every marketing emails. The subject of my email should be something like "Free Gift Inside"
