How to Create Email Newsletters that Inspire Action

Get Subscribers to Read and Act upon Your Content
If you have been searching for ways to breathe new life into your content, remember that some methods are as effective as ever. You could spend time and energy devising a dazzling marketing campaign on social media. Before you do that, however, you should consider this: Email is still one of the most effective means of inspiring action from internet users. Make the most of your content marketing efforts by utilizing this tried-and-true way to communicate.  

How to Increase Your CTR and Conversions:

If you are already sending email but are not getting the results you want, it is probably time to make a few changes. Most people receive dozens of emails per day. This means that yours need to compel subscribers to open them. Once they do that, readers must also be driven to act upon what they see.

Employ the top 4 strategies to create more effective email newsletters:

  • Subject Lines – You cannot increase your average click-through rate (CTR) or conversions if no one is opening your emails. Use subject lines that instill a sense of urgency while appealing to the needs of your audience. If you publish a frugality blog, for example, your followers would likely respond to this type of headline: “Last chance to save $30 and gain lifetime access to our program!”
  • Limit Frequency – Currently,the average working person receives close to 100 emails per day, and that number is expected to rise. If you do not want your emails going unopened or being sent directly to spam folders, do not bombard people with irrelevant content. Instead, only send email when you have essential information to impart, such as an upcoming sale or other event.
  • Freedom of Choice – If many of your users seem to respond favorably to frequent emails, offer them a way to select the frequency with which they receive them. They might choose from options such as daily, weekly, or monthly newsletters, as well as an option to only receive emails when a major event is about to take place. 
  • Maintain Focus – Avoid information overload. By remaining focused on the topic described in the subject line, you will have a better chance of holding the attention of readers. Even if you prefer to keep the tone of your content casual and personable, rambling aimlessly about the details of your weekend will cause your subscribers to move on to more pressing emails. 

Marketing emails still incur significantly higher percentages of CTRs and conversion rates than social media ads do. If you want to reach your subscribers and increase conversions, say it in an email. Just be sure that what you have to say is relevant and compelling to your subscribers.

What You Need to Know

If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that Google is going to update its search algorithm. Some experts estimate that Google makes 500 to 600 updates annually, or once or twice each day. Most of these changes don’t have a significant impact on your SEO strategy, but every now and then, one comes along that can have serious repercussions. Learn more about two new features of Google search that help users verify and evaluate search results.

Google, one of the largest companies in the world, relies on artificial intelligence for hundreds of it projects. It can seem a little hypocritical for Google to tell businesses that they can’t use AI-generated content on their website. Back in 2010, Google’s John Mueller said that using automated translation tools to create content for your website “could be viewed as being against our Webmaster guidelines.” Here we are, over 10 years later, and Mueller just tweeted that “content generators have been around since the start of the web…Most sites…don’t need help creating low-quality content.” There’s a big discussion in the SEO industry about AI-generated content.

One of the toughest things about creating content is coming up with ideas. You can research keywords all day long, but if you can’t come up with topics around those keywords, your content may fall flat. If your in-house copywriter is struggling to keep up with a content calendar, you might be thinking about working with a content agency. Use these questions to prepare for a meeting with the project manager or as starting points to create your own content.

There just isn't a 'softer' way to say this; it's bad. Duplicate content, as defined by Google, “refers to substantive blocks of content within or across domains that either completely match other content in the same language or are appreciably similar.” Google highly recommends avoiding duplicate content. The key reason is that the ranking of the page on search engine results may suffer. This means, your audiences will not find your content, and when they do, they are unlikely to consider it useful. Understanding how Google handles duplicate content can help you elevate user experience and create a better content marketing plan.

If you just keep churning out content without reviewing what you’ve already done, you’re missing out on opportunities to make your content perform better. A content audit exercise involves systematically reviewing what you’ve published on your website and blog.

Search has changed a lot over the years. Search results are displayed to be more efficient for users. Users search for information differently than they used to. There’s still a lot that search can’t do right now. Google aims to change the power of search again with their latest update, Multitask Unified Model, aka MUM. This new update will expand search capability to make search deliver more accurate and relevant information in seconds. Here’s what your content writers need to know about MUM.

Refine Your Content So it Resonates with Your Audience

Many websites churn out content as part of their online digital strategy without considering how their audience will respond to the content. Contextualizing content is a way of adding value to the reader. But what does it mean to put your content in context? It’s a way of approaching content that considers the why and when of your content, not just the person who is reading it. A person who needs a plumber to fix a leak needs different content than someone who is thinking about how to install a new toilet. The first customer needs access to a list of quick tips to prevent damage until a plumber can help while the second customer may want to read through a detailed outline of updating a bathroom for aging-in-place.
