2. Segment your list

Segmenting your subscriber’s list will help you design an email automation series specific to the actions taken by the user on the site.

For example: if you are hosting an event for the small business owners located near the venue. By segmenting the subscribers, you can easily filter out the small business owners living near the venue and contact them.

Segmenting the email list is much better than checking on every subscriber for eligibility. You can use a customer segmentation tool, that enables you to have insight into the behavior and segment the customers according to parameters.

When you design your emails after segmenting the subscriber lists, you receive better open rates, customers, leads, and revenue.

How to segment the list:

  • Step 1- define your data list (what kind of product you are selling)
  • Step 2- create your ideal customer profile/ avatar (demography, pain points, goals, etc.)
  • Step 3- Choose your segment (segment it by company size, industry, sales cycle)

(For example, you must have the data of what tools the small business use. You can create a blog post targeting that particular segment and mail them. For example, if you’re a small business use Google sheets and are unaware of the easiest way to use it, you can share a blog post like- “The easiest way to use Google Docs or Google Docs update 2021)

The early-stage subscribers, might not be ready for buying, you can approach them by sharing valuable content like (tips, whitepapers, e-books, webinars, etc.) on the other hand, for approaching eager buyers, you can design your mail highlighting the free trails/ demos, etc.

3. Switch to auto-response/ Automation

For maximizing conversions and customer engagement, you have to remain active 24/7 and cater to customer’s queries. Yes, it is possible!

Most of the common types of trigger emails are – thank you mail, transaction emails, order confirmation emails, abandoned cart emails, etc.

According to a resource, triggered emails generated 5x higher open rates and 15x higher click-through rates.

4. How to design your trigger mails

  • Activate: For a new user, you can create an activation campaign with guidance on how they can get started.
  • Win-back: If you have a deal for the existing customer, you can pique their interest by designing a personalized mail discussing your new offerings, in which they might be interested.
  • Surprise: Giveaways are a much-anticipated reward for loyal customers. You can create an email addressing the clients about the giveaways.

Switch to email automation and design a series of sending automated emails, even when you aren’t active. This will help keep your customers engaged and hooked for more. Here are some important things you need to take care of while automating the emails:

Create an automated cycle based on the action taken on the site (subscription, signed-up for a free e-book, webinar, use a free template, etc.
Design your subject line and title in a way to immediately catch the attention
The name you use in your emails can have an impact on open rates.

  • “[URGENT] You’ve got ONE DAY to watch this…”- Fear of missing out
  • “Don’t open this email”- Curiosity provoking
  • “Complimentary gift wrap on all purchases”- Greed
  • How to email a busy person (including a word-for-word script)”- For one who ignores mails
  • Pizza Hut: “Feed your guests without breaking the bank” – (Highlight the pain points)

Design the email with a goal!

Automating the responses helps in improving engagement by 60%. Think about having done with the work without moving a key!
