5 ways to increase your email marketing conversion rate

Use these 5 strategies to generate higher conversion rates:

1. Test your subject line

If you want a 26.96% increase in your CTR like Skandium, you must test your subject line before and after sending the email. You can use email subject line testers to test before sending or do A/B testing after sending the email.

2. Add single CTA

Adding multiple CTAs in a single email isn’t a good idea as it can confuse the reader. So, using a single CTA that’s easy to recognize is a good practice.

But, if you need to add multiple CTAs, always make the primary CTA the most prominent. You can underline or use a different color to make this CTA stand out.

3. Identify the best time to send emails

The best sending time depends on the geolocation. The United States has 7.4% of all open happen between 10 AM to 11 AM. The best thing you can do is create segmented lists based on geography and send the optimal time of that geographical area.

4. Use personalization

Personalize every aspect of your email, including the subject line, body content, sending time, etc. This will make your email look more engaging and inviting to the reader. A study by Startup Bonsa reveals that personalized emails increase conversions by around 10%, on average.

5. Add interactivity to your emails

Interactive content in emails gives more conversions than passive content. So add videos, GIFs, forms, carts, interactive calculators, etc., with Mailmodo’s no-code, the easy-to-use template editor.
