Five ways to reinforce your ecommerce activities with email marketing

Website owners hate abandoned shopping carts, inactive customers and decreasing conversion rates, but all too often opportunities are left unexploited to reduce these by delivering personalised, targeted event driven email marketing.

Email marketing also provides opportunities to build relationships, trust and boost customer loyalty which will also positively affect the bottom line.

In the following article, I’ll look into five key points that can help you to generate more revenue and take your ecommerce activities to a higher level using email marketing.


The future of email marketing and three ways it must evolve

Email has been around for a while now, and it’s done us all proud. The ubiquitous method of communication is so pervasive as a communication method that not having one is even more unusual than not having a telly (brave souls).

It’s difficult to talk about a new communication channel without comparing it to email, and for email to remain relevant it needs to evolve to give consumers what they now expect from digital communication channels.


Personalization key for email in 2013

Though email has been with us for the lifetime of most digital marketers, I think it has the potential to be an exciting space, if marketers are able to look at it as a new and exciting channel just as they think of social media.

Agencies are beginning to merge email and social as they see personalization at the core of the success of both channels. This is one area we'll see grow in 2013 but what else is in store for us when it comes to email?


10 things you can do to make me love your emails

To all keyholders of the company spam cannon, before causing immense collateral damage by firing off emails that don't fit with the lovely idea of your brand, follow these ten pointers and, with me at least, you'll be guaranteed a pair of eyes.


Four key steps to achieving relevance in email marketing

Relevance is the Holy Grail, not just for email marketers but for marketers in general. The word relevance has been over-used to the point of making it a cliché.

However, at the heart of every cliché is fact, and think about it for any length of time it quickly becomes clear that every tool, every tactic, every strategy we use to improve email results is purely focused at achieving one result – greater relevance.


10% of consumers use mobile as their primary device for checking email

Almost 10% of consumers use a smartphone or tablet as the primary device for checking email, according to a new survey by the DMA.

This suggests that desktop clients should still be the most important focus for marketers, however it doesn’t take into account the number of people who check or prioritise their emails on mobile.

Stats published in May shows that more than a third of consumers (36%) read marketing emails on mobile, rising to 55% among 18-34 year olds. 

A separate study found that 33% of respondents said that they use their mobile to screen emails before reading them later on a desktop.


Why more marketers need to think about responsive email design

The growth of mobile has been a game changer for the world of email marketing.

Considering that smartphone usage tripled in 2011, it’s no surprise that email consumption via mobile devices has also seen a steep upturn.

Furthermore, we have seen some of our clients experience open rates of around 70% on mobile, proving just how vital it is when running campaigns.


Best practices for mobile email design

The web is going mobile, and so are emails. One in three in the UK says they access mobile email more than ever, and over half do so via a smartphone. 

Right now about 30% of all email checks are done from phones and tablets, and the usage grew by some 80% during 2011.

Following on from my previous post on email marketing, I'll look at some best practices for mobile email design...

Email marketing: getting it right and read

Long ago, emails were text. No formatting, images or attachments. For alternative fonts, different colours and other spectacle, you turned to web pages.

Then design options began to seep into emails. Gone was the uniform text, now one could choose between colours and other layout options.

With time, HTML emails grew popular, and for a while it seemed as if the walls between web pages and emails were thinning.


Intelligent email marketing that drives conversions: infographic

Email marketing is an important channel for maintaining a relationship with customers and driving conversions through targeted messages and offers.

Email marketing stats: consumers open just 20% of messages

Email marketing is an important customer acquisition and retention tool, but as consumers get bombarded with more and more email messages, how do you know whether your campaign should be judged a success?

While the aims and objectives differ for each campaign, it is useful to be able to benchmark results against the industry average.

Email marketing firm Silverpop has published a study that examines email messages sent during 2011 and the first quarter of 2012 by 1,124 brands in its client base.

A broad set of message types was included in the study. From promotional emails and content-based newsletters to notifications and transactional messages sent by companies in a variety of industries.

The full report covers a number of criteria, but here we look at open rates, CTR and unsubscribe rates.
