email frequency

Send more email, make more money?

I can understand why those more insulated from the coalface of email marketing may get confused with the seeming reluctance of some email marketers to increase their email frequency.

Taking a detached view of the numbers, might lead some to suggest that purely increasing the amount of emails you send to your list could increase your revenue.

This can sometimes work, and as long as you are closely monitoring open/click rates and engagement metrics like response recency, you could be OK.

When upping frequency, inbox 'placement' also needs close monitoring, as it can lead to less engagement and by default ending up in the junk folder.

The coalface marketer knows this, and it is this knowledge of the possible implications of over-mailing that hold many back.

Yahoo causes a storm in the inbox for consumers and marketers

New changes to email accounts at Yahoo have the potential to frustrate marketers and cause privacy concerns across the globe.

Privacy has never been so important to all of us, and invasion of privacy has never been feared as it is today.

Countless reports over the past few years around hacking and miss-use of data has reached the top of the news headlines, which makes Yahoo!'s recent move in releasing dormant email accounts, all the more puzzling.

Adestra 2013 Subject Line Report

152 killer keywords for email subject lines (and 137 crappy ones)

We had a hunch that word choice in email subject lines have a strong effect on response rates.  So, we tested 287 keywords across a sample of 2.2bn emails to see which work, and which don’t. 

Why? Because President Obama has done more for email marketing than any world leader in the history of mankind. How? By focusing on subject line testing, his digital team optimised their donation campaigns to generate hundreds of millions of dollars online.

Despite Obama’s best efforts, most marketers still view email marketing as the Bluth Company’s Banana Stand of Arrested Development fame: a more boring and less sexy marketing channel than pretty much anything else imaginable. 

But – and never forget this – there’s always money in the banana stand! There is great power in optimising subject lines.

In case you missed my presentations at MarketingWeekLive last week, you can find out more about our findings after the jump.

More than half of businesses achieve 10% of sales through email marketing

In the fast moving world of digital marketing the value of email for driving sales is occasionally overlooked as shiny new technologies emerge and distract our attention from what actually works in terms of bringing in revenue.

However the new Econsultancy/Adestra Email Marketing Census again highlights the importance of email as a sales channel, as just over half (55%) of all company respondents could attribute more than 10% of their total sales to the email marketing channel, with 18% of respondents stating that email accounted for over 30%.

The Email Marketing Census looks at the amount and type of email marketing carried out by organisations, the way that email marketing is conducted, issues affecting the industry and the effectiveness of email compared to other digital marketing channels.

How to get your emails into the Hotmail inbox. Step one: welcome new subscribers

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a blog on how the new Microsoft WSRD data was impacting email marketing. For webmail accounts managed by Microsoft, WSRD data is increasing effecting whether your email goes to junk, or into the inbox.

These accounts relate to quite a high percentage of some retailers' email lists (50%+) so how Microsoft treats your mail can have a large impact on the revenue you make from email.

In order to ensure your emails stay in the inbox, this post takes you through developing the customer relationship and increasing user engagement through producing a welcome/nursery programme.

Education companies achieve highest average CTR in email marketing: report

Education and healthcare organisations achieve the highest average click-through rate (CTR) on email marketing campaigns, while computer and telecoms companies yield the lowest results.

The findings come from a new report from Silverpop, which measures the CTR as the number of unique clicks in the email message divided by the number of delivered email messages in a campaign.

The report shows that the education sector gets the highest average CTR (5.8%) and its top quartile are also the highest achievers overall (12.8%).

Overall top-quartile performers had click-through rates that were nearly four times higher than the median CTR of 2.3%. In contrast, bottom-quartile performers didn’t even muster 1% click-throughs.

Five uncommon ways for ecommerce retailers to segment their email list

It’s “divide and conquer” when it comes to email lists. Your analytics team is charged with putting your customers into their respective buckets.

Then it’s the job of the marketing and creative teams to come up with relevant messaging targeted to each segment.

Marketers are familiar with the traditional types of segmentation, such as gender, age, location and engagement.

These types of segmentation pay (literally), however, it can be even more rewarding to dig a little deeper into your list and find the correct segmentation for the job.

Following are five less-common methods of segmenting your list.
