Things you should know as an Email Marketer

1. To calculate the open rate we use a measurement called “known” opens.  A known open is when the subscriber enables the images in your email to display either in the preview pane or in a full view of the email. That is the reason why text emails cannot show accurate statistics, they don't include images, and there is not a possibility to track. 2 - The recipient clicks a link in the email. So for bragging rights, a high open rate makes you look good. But to get the best out of your campaigns, you want action or engagement not just an open.  That’s where the click-through rate comes in.  If you achieve a high click through rate, you are more likely to create engagement through product sales, event updates and coupon redemption.

Here we give some recommendations on  how to obtain and/or increase your subscribers:

1. Subscription Form : Include this form in all your websites and in your newsletters . A way to place your subscription form is using a pop "pop up " and when proceeds to close the window on your website or navigate to another page , offer the option to register their email in a popup window .

4 . Referrals : Ask your current subscribers to invite their contacts to be part of your list , and if they do give them a discount and / or a gift as an incentive


A Good Subject Line makes a difference on your Email Marketing Campaigns

Many people say that the most important  thing in the email is the subject line, as it is the first thing your readers see and it gives them the interest to read your email . It is said that thelonger the subject line is less desire your recipients are going to have to open your newsletter.

Our recommendation is that your subject line contains no more than 40 characters , since most email providers show only that amount.

Another advantage of creating short subject lines is that we avoid using many capitals, and that way your email has less chance of being categorized as spam. Remember not to use words in your topic as Viagra , free, money etc ... as this will also be considered spam.

Be sure to always send a test email to make sure your reaching the Inbox . Thanks and I hope you follow these tips .

Segment Your Lists for Targeted Messages

One of email marketing’s most valuable tools is segmentation: with lists segmented by subscriber characteristics like age, gender, past purchase behavior and even location, you can create and send content that relates directly to those you’re looking to get in connect with.

To get started, click on ‘Segmentation’ at the bottom of the left-hand list column on the ‘Manage Contacts’ dashboard page.

Emailbrain helps you collect information to segment your lists through your web subscription form, data appending via Rapleaf, and OneSaas integrations, allowing you to integrate your CRM applications with your Emailbrain data.

Tip: Not opening an email says as much about you as opening it and once you now who and where your emails weren’t opened you can try a different approach. Make sure to keep track of non-active subscribers and remove them from your list when appropriate.

For more information on list segmentation, check out our help center in your account or watch this video.
