(Go to the timestamps to listen to the speaker covering each section in depth)
Importance of Email Targeting (00:02:10)
Over 340 billion emails are sent worldwide every day, leading to intense competition for attention. Breaking this down further, on average, people receive 100 to 120 emails per day, making it challenging for marketers to stand out. On the other hand, in 2021, 45% of all emails were spam, causing subscribers to be suspicious and selective about which emails they open. "So this is our challenge, how will our emails stand out in the sea of competition?", asked Kristy to the audience.
Key Factors for Boosting Conversions (00:04:02)
Content Identifying the pain points of your audience and how your product or service can solve it, is the first step. Ensure that your email provides value and inspires action.
Content Recommendations To do this, define the goal of each email and ensure it aligns with your overall purpose. "Include at least one clear call to action per email, but avoid overwhelming subscribers" warns Kristy.
Design When it comes to design, make your email easy to read with clear headings, subheadings, buttons, and contrasting colors. Use high-quality images that load quickly.
Frequency and Timing Determine the optimal number of days between emails based on testing and audience response. Consider the best days of the week and times of day to send emails.
Segmentation Divide your email list into segments based on common characteristics. Target subscribers with content that aligns with their interests and needs.
