When it comes to welcome emails, your customers have seen it all.

Having handed over their precious personal information through a sign-up form or purchase, any number of experiences awaited them—running the gamut from absolutely annoying to surprisingly delightful.

Today’s consumers are more sophisticated than ever and won’t put up with obnoxious marketing—they have plenty of options and will take their attention elsewhere if you abuse it.

Getting them to sign up is only the first step. From there, everything we do is relationship-building.

Professionals know that you must deliver value and do it consistently.

Get this first step right, and you have the opportunity to stand out in a crowded and noisy marketplace, possibly winning a customer’s love for years to come.

This guide will help you level up your email marketing game. You’ll see plenty of examples from real businesses (across many industries) that can serve as welcome email templates to guide your creative process.

At the end we’ll explore a bonus strategy for ensuring you get that vital first contact right.

Let’s get started.

What is a Welcome Email?

Welcome emails serve to introduce people into your world or transition them deeper down your funnel. Typically automated, this message is triggered by a subscriber or customer filling out a form, making a purchase, or signing up in some way to receive value from your business.

It typically includes a warm and welcoming message along with introductions to you and your team, your company’s values, instructions on what to do next, and any other information needed to move forward.

Actions That Can Trigger a Welcome Email Include :

  • Subscribing to a newsletter or blog
  • Making a purchase
  • Logging in and setting up a profile
  • Purchasing another tier of service
  • Signing up for deals, special offers, or other free gifts
  • Joining a training (webinar, mini-course, workshop)
  • Inquiries to learn more

It’s important to know that you may need a number of different welcome emails depending on where your leads are coming from.

For example, if prospects enter your world from a Facebook ad campaign that emphasizes a specific benefit of your product, then you want that welcome message congruent with what came before it.

Otherwise, if you’re trying to use the same welcome message for that ad campaign and your blog sign up form, the messaging can be misaligned. This leaves your reader feeling confused, eroding the trust you’re trying to build.

Welcome emails deserve much more care and attention than most businesses give them.

Let’s take a look at just how important they are to your business.

Why Your Welcome Messages for Customers is Vital

For most businesses, they are a massive untapped opportunity for brand building, cultivating customer relationships, and improving sales and conversions.

Yet only 57.7% of brands greet new subscribers with this strategy. And 73% of brands that did send an email did not send any messages within the first 48 hours (Source: Experian Marketing Services).

  • Subscribers will expect it – People who sign up for your newsletter are going to expect an email delivered to their inbox right when they hit the subscribe button. Without getting an immediate email post signing up, they may lose interest. Don’t make them think – why didn’t they get any email. This is supported by the fact that – 74% of people expect a welcome email the moment they subscribe.
  • Better open and click rates – A user who has signed up with your brand translates to a potential customer, who has the intent to make a purchase. This is when eCommerce companies can make the most of this by sending relevant emails to the recipient as a part of their campaign.
  • More conversions – With open and click rates of 46.72% and 11.27%, it is a sureshot chance of increasing conversions. Their intent to make a purchase is definitely higher as they’ve already opened the email and clicked on it.
  • Enhanced deliverability – The email marketing benchmark study for 2022 by GetResponse found that most of the welcome emails make it to the recipients’ inbox instead of the spam folder. They’re classified as spam only 0.05% of the time. The caveat here is the content and the subject line included. Moreover, the unsubscribe rate for these emails comes to around 0.84%.
  • Multifold results – With copy that’s convincing, such emails can perform almost 3x more than promotional and transactional emails. Additionally, they build long-term relationships with subscribers and nudge them just enough so they take a call to action.

What is the Best Time to Send Welcome Emails?

The timing of sending your emails matters. As a rule of thumb, you should set up automated emails that get delivered to the recipients such as newsletter subscribers within minutes of them subscribing. Same goes for a customer who’s just signed up with your brand. It shows that you’re proactive and care about engaging with them. Additionally, it boosts the open rates and provides a positive signal that enhances the deliverability rates as well.

Welcome Emails have Higher Unsubscribe Rates. Here’s Why you Shouldn’t Worry.

An email unsubscribe rate is the percentage of users who opt out of an email list post a campaign. When the number rises, it indicates whether or not your email campaign is working. It sounds an alarming bell for marketers but on the other side of the coin, there’s an advantage.

Unsubscribe rates are more commonplace for welcome emails. But guess what? It actually improves the email deliverability.

The reasons for people unsubscribing from the emails is – they may not be the customers who’d want to do business with you. For instance, a freelance marketer may subscribe to your emails just to assess the kind of content or promos on the offer and may unsubscribe later.

Now pause for a second. These are the folks who will never engage with your emails. Once they leave, the email deliverability rates will automatically increase, which is great news actually!

Likewise, there may be people who were in your email list. But they switched roles or companies and will no longer need the emails. In this case as well, the unsubscribes don’t hurt.

How to Create the Perfect Welcome Email Template Outline?

  • Sender – Your brand/business. Or, like Neil Patel, it can also be sent from/on behalf of, a person. More often than not, brands love to humanize the content beginning with giving it a known face to get acquainted with customers.
  • Reply-to email – As opposed to a no-reply email address, go for a reply-to email. This is because sometimes the customers or recipients would want more information as a followup. They’d want someone to address their queries, such as from customer support. it also makes the brand more human.
  • Kickass subject line – Better subject lines = better open rates. Period. We’ve covered this point in the next section.
  • Preview text – Along with the subject line, make it a point to elaborate and give some context via the preview text. This will entice or engage the recipients further.
  • Body copy – Because the meat lies in the body copy, leverage it to reap maximum benefits. You may send out HTML emails or text-based emails, it is important that the message is legible. The idea is to communicate clearly irrespective of the email.
  • Social links – Make it a point to link all your social media handles (or at least the most important ones) at the bottom of the email and you can stand the chance of getting more followers. This is the way you can engage with the audience on another platform.
  • Unsubscribe link – This is a no-brainer. Any email you send out, should include the option for the recipients to unsubscribe from it.

What are Some Tips to Write Stellar Welcome Emails?

Anyone can write a welcome message. But to write an email that delights customers or new subscribers takes effort. You need to retain their interest after the ‘first contact’ and so, we’ve compiled these tips that’ll help you do so!

  • Watch the tone – What goes in the email is the secondary aspect. The first thing you need to get right is the tonality. Is your brand serious, straightforth and candid? Or does it tilt towards fun, silly, vibrancy and humor? Keep these nitty-gritties in mind along with the target audience demographic and you’ll never go wrong in maintaining the perfect tone of voice for all your welcome emails.
  • Reinforce your brand’s story. Tell them what are the benefits of subscribing to the newsletter, what sets the brand apart, how you are going to take the new connection with them forward, and set the solid foundation for a long-term relationship.
  • Segment the subscribers. We can’t stress the benefits of segmenting your email lists and it includes segmenting the new subscribers as well. With segmentation, you can send more personalized content their way and win their trust from day 0.
  • Plan the journey. Do you want the subscribers to learn about the new products or services? Or do you want them to take any other specific call to action while reading your emails? Based on what you need the recipients to do, make sure you plan their journey with a carefully curated email series. Similarly, plan the sequence in which you want to deliver the emails.
  • Always add the context. You’ll have different subscribers signing up for your email due to different reasons. Without setting the context in the email, they will lose interest quickly. This is why you need to tailor the email based on their individual experience with the brand or business and therefore, you need to set the context right from the subject line itself.
  • Make the subject line persuasive. Play to your creative strengths and use triggers that provide a sneak peek into what the email contains. This will surely entice the recipients to open the email and get hooked instantly. You may also want to use emojis in the subject lines based on your brand’s communication guidelines and the messaging.
  • Personalization is the name of the game. Personalization such as including the name of your subscriber in the email is known to evoke more personal response from them. Therefore, when people opt-in for say, a newsletter, make sure you include a field which has their name in it. If you have more data on them, you can customize the email copy based on the same as well.
  • Use storytelling. Stories are amazing for driving sales. After all, everyone loves a good story and authentic communication. What better way to do this but to introduce your brand’s backstory or the timeline of your best selling product and so on. There is no one way to do this. But telling real stories does the trick and makes your message more engaging and persuasive to your target audience.
  • Be warm. Shower your subscribers with gratitude. Include a warm thank you in your email and also, offer them something that they can use – like a promo coupon. This will cement their interest in your brand for quite some time.
  • Use a single CTA. Don’t confuse the recipients of your email by including multiple CTAs in the email. Make sure that you use only one primary CTA.

How do you ensure that your brand is fully leveraging the opportunities that come from sending great welcome emails?

We’ll use the following examples to highlight nine best practices to help you make a great first impression. We’ve rounded up dozens of examples from multiple industries to give you plenty of options to fit your brand and message.

Optimize Open Rates With Welcome Email Subject Lines

It doesn’t matter how epic your onboarding email is if no one opens it.
And even though most customers expect a welcome email, you should still do everything you can to encourage more opens.

That’s why we start by writing our best subject line—one that stands out in a busy inbox and grabs their attention.

According to Invespro, “47% of email recipients open email based on the subject line alone.”

Test These Subject Line Strategies for Better Open Rates :

  • Get their greed going by offering discounts and deals
  • Pique their curiosity by hinting at something special inside
  • Make it personal by using their first name
  • Give them a chuckle with something clever or funny

Your Subject Line Should Not Be :

  • Vague or generic
  • SHOUTING WITH ALL CAPS
  • Sloppy: Poor grammar and weird formatting makes you look unprofessional
  • Misleading: Remember, we’re trying to build trust

Is your brand serious, tough, funny, feminine, playful? Ultimately, your subject lines should match your brand’s voice.

Being consistent builds trust, and that starts with your subject line.

Let’s look at some Welcome Email examples to get you started. For your convenience, we’ve provided an additional list of 15 subject line templates at the end of this guide.

Example : Birch Lane

Industry :
Furniture & Hardware

This message feels inspiring and hopeful. Exactly what you would want on the beginning of a health or weight loss journey.

Manners make a good first Impression

This one may seem like a “no brainer,” but it’s important to get this right.

Just like in a regular conversation, it’s important that you have good manners and treat your new subscriber well. Put them at ease by showing them you are caring and considerate.

It’s generally a good idea to personalize email messages by using their first name if you gathered it with your sign up form.

Follow with a sincere “thank you” and “welcome.”

No one wants to feel like they’ve just been fed into a faceless corporate marketing machine, and the more your email can feel like it’s coming from a real person the better.

Much of this feeling has to do with the tone and style of your writing—think conversational style versus robotic “corporate speak.”

Put a face to your business

This is a great time to introduce yourself and your team. Especially if this subscriber is new to your world (versus an existing customer). This can be accomplished with face shots of your team or pictures of your workplace.

Remember, as always, match the language and tone of your welcome and introductions to the overall style of your brand.

Finally, it’s a good practice to acknowledge where they came from.

For example, imagine you’re walking down the sidewalk and see a huge sign with balloons in front of a store that says “Massive One-Day Only SALE!” You walk in and there are no signs anywhere and the person behind the counter greets you but doesn’t say a word about the sale.

You would probably be wondering, “Did I walk into the wrong store?”

Wouldn’t that leave you feeling a bit confused or anxious? That is exactly what you never want your potential customers to feel.

That feels good, right?

Concise copy improves conversion rates

Most of the time it’s a bad idea to present your new subscriber with a daunting wall of text.

Your customers work hard, don’t make your emails look like hard work.

They’ll just move on to the next message and forget about you. Plus, they’ll make a mental note that every time they open your email, it’s going to be difficult.

That means your message should be clear, concise and to the point. Your welcome email doesn’t need to tell them everything about your company.

The better your copy, the longer it can be. But it should only be as long as it absolutely needs to be to get the job done.

Using short, explainer style videos can help break up the amount of reading they have to do so they don’t get overwhelmed.

Also, using bold, italics, and underlining can help highlight important information and make it easier for them to navigate your instructions.

Don’t Leave Them Guessing What to Do Next

Confusion leads to lower conversions and is bad for business.

Remember, if it feels confusing or like hard work, you risk making a poor first impression or even permanently losing your subscribers’ attention.

If there are next steps for them to take, lay it out clearly. Don’t leave them guessing.

Consider using GIFs, images, or explainer videos along with text to make it easy for them to understand at a glance. People don’t have time to decipher convoluted instructions or requests.

If what they need to do next is complicated, provide a link to a guide that goes in depth.

Let them know what to expect from you in the future.

Will you be emailing them weekly? Sending them different types of emails? Offering deals and coupons?

Again, we’re building trust, but also interest. They’ll be more likely to open future emails from you.

Any call to action should be clear, obvious, and can be repeated multiple times in longer emails.

Examples of CTA’s include:

  • Setup a profile
  • Whitelist these emails to safe sender status
  • Register

Welcome Email Design: The Aesthetic Advantage

Design matters.

Functionally, it can make navigating and understanding your message easier or more difficult.

A cluttered email can make your reader feel anxious and overwhelmed, making them more likely to set your email aside for another time (never).

The colors, fonts, images, and layout you use are an extension of your branding. They create a continuity of experience from your advertising, website, and even your physical business location. Giving customers a congruent experience continues to build trust.

Images work with your copy to tell a story and create an experience. They can be used (along with video) to feature products.

The text in your email should be easy to read and include plenty of whitespace on the page.

If you can, use bullet points and numbered lists to make reading your email feel easy.

Your call to action button should be obvious and stand out from the everything else on the page.

Be generous (and you will receive)

Giving is a great way to begin any relationship.

It generates goodwill and triggers your customers’ reciprocity reflex—moving them to make that vital first purchase with your business.

If you offered an incentive for them to sign up, give it to them right away and make it easy.

Common gifts businesses give to their subscribers:

  • Guides, ebooks, white papers
  • Promo codes, coupons, discounts
  • Newsletter subscription
  • Free mini-course or other training

Another way to demonstrate your generosity is by providing links to blog posts and guides, FAQs, and other relevant and helpful resources (videos, blogs, etc.). Even if you didn’t create these resources, acting as a curator saves your reader time.

You can also encourage and reward social shares by offering additional discounts to those who spread the word.

    Encourage subscribers to get in touch

    With welcome emails enjoying higher open rates and engagement, what better opportunity to learn valuable information about your audience?

    One way you can do this is to encourage your readers to reply by asking them a question and demonstrating that you invite communication and feedback from your customers.

    Besides positioning yourself as a genuinely helpful and caring business, getting personal emails from your customers is marketing gold. They give you direct insights into your customers’ questions, desires, and frustrations.

    If you don’t want to discourage replies, then don’t use the noreply@business.com format.

    Also, make sure to provide contact info for them to reach you. This includes business location, services, email, website links, phone number, and social links.

    Another way to encourage feedback is to embed a simple survey at the bottom of your email. All they have to do is click and submit.

    Invite feedback from customers by inviting them to:

    • Reply to your email
    • Message you through your website’s contact page
    • Call you
    • Ping you one social media
    • Answer a survey
    • Fill out a form or profile
    • Come see you in person at an event or your physical location

    Noteworthy

    Ignite Visibility provides a phone number, email, and the possibility of requesting a free consultation.

    Be social

    The more connection points you can establish with your customer base the better.

    Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with your subscribers on social media.

    This helps grow your presence on those platforms and keeps your business top of mind when it comes time for customers to need your solutions.

    Another benefit is if your emails happen to go to spam, there is still an opportunity for customers see your updates on their social feed.

    Always include social links in the footer of your email.

    Example : Hardware Hut

    Industry :
    Hardware
    Click to preview

    Noteworthy

    The HardwareHut does a great job displaying social buttons at the bottom of their email. They really pop.

    Education
    Click to preview

    Noteworthy

    ThoughtCo. only provides links to three social platforms, but they are highly visible.

    Sometimes you gotta let them go

    This may sound counterintuitive, but you want to make it very easy for people to unsubscribe from your email list.

    This is part of being in a trusting relationship. You want readers there on their own free will—because they want to be there, not because they can’t figure out how to leave.

    It’s up to you to keep them entertained, educated, and inspired. If you provide great value and treat people right, then you shouldn’t have any problem keeping most of your subscribers happy.

    The others? Well, you have to let them go.

    And if you don’t make it easy, they’ll tag you as spam, harming your email deliverability for the people out there who actually want to hear from you.

    Also, you must do this to be compliant with various legal and regulatory codes like the GDPR.

    Example : Revolve

    Industry :
    Clothing
    Click to preview

    Noteworthy

    Revolve provides two opportunities to unsubscribe: About three quarters of the way down the page they ask: “Didn’t mean to subscribe? No worries! Unsubscribe here” and then at the footer (where unsubscribe links are typically located).

    It actually makes you trust them more because they aren’t coming across as desperate to keep you there.

    Example : FoodPrint

    Industry :
    NGO

    Noteworthy

    FoodPrint provides the standard unsubscribe link in the footer of their email. It’s obvious enough if you need to find it.

    Industry :
    Automotive

    Noteworthy

    Land Rover’s unsubscribe link is just as obvious as their “contact us” link and their social links, making it easy for those who want to opt out of emails.
