In a recent article, we gave you 13 WAYS TO GROW YOUR EMAIL LIST. We hope that you’ve taken and applied those suggestions to grow your email list so that you can continually reach your customers!
Now that you have an email list, it’s time to utilize that list and reach your customers. In order to truly connect with your audience, you need to make your emails more personal.
Most customers feel special if they get a personal email that feels like you are speaking to their specific needs and offering them a product or service that adds value to their lives.
Below are some of the best practices that will help set you to create more personalized emails that will get more clicks.
1. Create customer personas (an ideal customer)
Before anything else, you need to understand your target market. You should have a customer persona database segmented according to their demographics, job levels, goals, and specific pain points. Once you know who you are talking to, this will enable you to start segmenting your emails.
2. Product positioning for specific target segments
The content and language you use in the emails are important according to the target segments you will be sending. When you email a certain segment, the offers you promote and the voice you use to promote them must align with the interests and needs of a specific target segment.
It is more effective to create a message that resonates with a specific group of leads. Getting the message right means better sales conversions.
3. Customize the sender name
Emails sent by a real person are more likely to be opened and clicked on versus emails sent from a company name. Make sure that you customize the sender in the email.
The best way to do this is by using the name of the lead’s sales rep owner or a name that a lead might recognize. She or he must be a well-known person in your marketing department or even your CEO.
4. Add personal information to the body of the email
You should use personalized information inside the email as necessary. As a good marketer, you’ve spent time and energy collecting data about your leads like their name and company. Including this information in the body of your email will make it feel even more personal.
