  1. Exclusivity - you want to generate the most interest and excitement you can with your campaign. Make subscribers feel as if they are seeing something special and limited. You can be subtle or direct in highlighting the exclusivity of the email. This is also a good time to humanize your brand and add a personal touch. Mention challenges and obstacles the brand faces, but also then restore faith as to why you can over come these. You can even segment your readers by asking them personal questions; in this way you can get your readers a more personal experience.

  2. Put the Customer First - it is important to show the customer that you have their best interest at heart. You can do this by extending their free trial or giving them more time to decide on your product. You want to make your customers happy so don’t overlook a generous offer to them.

This also helps to keep your users engaged and active. Another good way to use the customer is through referral codes. These are beneficial to everyone as it helps you advertise, and the customers get discounts.

  5. Create Habits - create habits amongst your users to click the Calls To Actions buttons in your emails. This can be achieved by each week including different Calls To Actions; some of which can include a free perk or special offer for example. You can also include downloads – exchanging files with your customers help to keep them interested and engaged with your brand. Another good habit it to use the same subject line for every email. That way readers can easily identify it’s from you.

This can include a series of “Getting Started” Guides. You could also try suggesting just 3 points the customer should do to get more from the product or service.

Another good think to do is show your gratitude for your customers. A personal and sincere thank you will make you customers feel good about themselves and your brand.

  10. Start Small - you can’t expect your customers to make big convertions with every email you send them. Rather aim for smaller interactions such a reading a blog post or downloading the file you sent.

  11. Timing - make sure you sending your emails to customers at the right time. You should try and account for different time zones rather than one mass email that gets the most clicks overall.
