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.

A purchase transaction may happen online or offline, but shopping is definitely a universally online phenomenon today. Every buyer uses the internet to get information when shopping. B2B buyers are no different, regardless of industry. Manufacturers can’t deny the power of content marketing, but many haven’t fully bought into investing in B2B content. Trade shows were expensive before the pandemic. As we come out of the pandemic, it’s unlikely that they’ll make a comeback to their former glory anytime soon. Print magazines and journals are not as relevant as they once were. Your team can’t reach out to every prospect in person.

So You Can Create Content that Google Will Find Easily and Rank High

It’s estimated that Google processes about 63,000 searches every second. When you consider that most adults conduct an average of at least three to four searches a day, it’s evident why you want to rank well in search engine results pages. Many copywriters may use keywords to boost SEO but may not fully understand how search works. Google’s main purpose isn’t to function as a marketing tool to promote your product or service.

When you go to the library, you don’t ask the librarian to tell you what to read. You want to read what interests you. In the same manner, when you create content, publish what your audience wants to read, not what you like. Okay, maybe the analogy is a bit outdated, or even alien to many of us. What library? Who goes there? Everything’s online! But you get the idea. Your customers have questions. They want answers. Here are three ways your copywriters can get ideas from your audience.

Prioritize Quality, Consistency and Frequency

"Easy reading is damn hard writing." - Nathaniel Hawthorne, American novelist and short story writer
It can take a skilled writer up to 6 hours to craft a well-written 2000-word blog post. Engaging writing takes time. Time many business owners and their teams simply don't have.
