Email Automation, which VerticalResponse recently added to its powerful toolkit, increases the impact and reduces the costs of email marketing. Studies conducted by MarTech Zone show that average click-through rates on automated email campaigns are three times higher than their one-off counterparts, and companies that regularly use automated email series generate 80 percent more sales at one-third less cost than other companies.
Brant Schmitz, Director of Email & Marketing Automation at partner company Deluxe, recently presented a webinar about email marketing and how businesses can harness the power of Email Automation in their campaigns. Here are a few of his key takeaways:
Email Automation is versatile
Automated email campaigns can promote your brand or products, create awareness, launch a product or service, re-engage customers, educate readers, or onboard new customers.
Email Automation nurtures trust and credibility
Consumers trust what they’re familiar with. By sending out automated emails that keep your brand top-of-mind and offer valuable information, you can build trust and credibility with your readers.
Determine your strategy ahead of time
Email Automation requires businesses to spend more time and effort planning campaigns: determining goals and the timing of emails, as well as writing all the messages in a series at once so they work together cohesively. After that work is complete, the automated series delivers campaigns to customers’ inboxes automatically, reducing the work required to send each email.
