Unlock the email mystery behind click, open, convert

How many promotional emails flooded your inbox this cyber holiday season? Suffice it to say that marketing with email has become a best practice for nearly every brand. But moving the needle to high conversion in this medium is not always a slam dunk.

We recently took a deep dive into the highs and lows of email campaigns we created. Here’s the 5 common denominators of our most successful (i.e., high conversion, high sales) campaigns:

1. They were developed with proven direct response methodology:

a) Strong CTA
b) Clear offer and promotional emphasis
c) Smart design
d) Attention-getting headlines

2. Not too long, not too short. Scrolling was kept to a minimum and the information you need to buy is right where you’re looking.

3. The email was supported by a smart and easy-to-use landing page to facilitate quick conversions.

4. They’re created with a smile! We’re convinced that this medium is more interruptive when its approach is lighthearted.

5. The code is glitch-less! The last thing we’d ever want to do is frustrate a potential customer who is attempting to buy from us. That’s why we test, test and test again before sending anything.
