Persuasive email marketing is all about convincing your leads to purchase from you. You only have a few seconds for your email campaign to create an impression on your subscribers. If done right, though, email marketing campaigns can successfully drive conversions.
Let’s take a quick look at the dos and don’ts of persuasive email marketing.
While sending out persuasive emails, you should be aware of who your target audience is. Write an email that matches their buyer persona and place in the sales funnel.
What do you want your subscriber to do? Define a particular goal for your email and make sure it’s obvious in how you place an enticing CTA.
Essentially, answer “What’s in it for me?” A good persuasive email is the one that helps the customer in some or the other way. Justify your email by providing a solution to a problem that they might be facing.
Include testimonials and user reviews for your products and services. This can breed a sense of trust in your subscribers and point them to evidence of customers made happy by your brands.
Highlight action words that grab attention, like fast, improve, introducing, etc. Make them bold if you have to. The point is to grab the subscribers who will be scanning your message for something important.
If your email is truly meant to be one-to-one, never forget that you are communicating with a real person at the other end of the email. Including a headshot in your email signature is a nice way of conveying that the email is from a real person just like the recipient.
Now, let’s shift our focus…
Your email should be as short and to-the-point as possible (unless you’re testing). If needed, break the email into smaller more readable (read: scannable) chunks. Include an interesting visual that matches your email purpose and conclude with a relevant CTA that stands out in the email.
It’s a major turnoff for people when they read an email that is totally irrelevant and hard to understand. Give a clear idea about how you can help by using clear language and simple terms.
Take into consideration past interactions and past purchases, if any. Draft an email specifically tailored to meet their requirements.
Create emails that your readers look forward to receiving and want to open. Deliver content that make your subscribers want to buy from you. That’s the whole idea of persuasive email marketing.
