Why Email Campaigns Are An Important Part Of
Email marketing is an important component of your business and has a higher ROI than any paid market advertising. Today’s Blog will address why email campaigns are an important part of your business.
What Is An Email Campaign
An email campaign is a series of emails sent to your subscribers for a specific purpose to…
- Build a relationship
- To Inform and educate
- To showcase your brand
- To promote a product/service.
One mistake email marketers make is immediately asking the subscriber to make a purchase as soon as they opt-in.
There are ways to offer a product or service during the initial sign-up process, called a trip-wire.
I’m sure you’ve seen this type of marketing where you opt-in to a free offer and on the next page is a thank you for signing up, but also an offer for you to purchase a low cost item that is a step above the free offer.
Tripwire: a tripwire is an extremely discounted offer that is given after someone opts-in for one of your freebies.
when a visitor opts-in to your freebie, they are redirected to the sales page of your trip wire.
The offer is usually a one-time-offer that is only available for a limited time.
Your tripwire needs to be relevant to your freebie offer. Avoid offering something that is unrelated although it’s a low price point will cause a disconnect and you will not accomplish your goal.
Once someone purchases your tripwire offer, you can upsell them through an email sales funnel which leads them to a more expensive offer that provides even more value.
This could be a membership course, group coaching program or a higher level of service that you offer.
The next first step in building your email campaigns is to do the behind the scences work first.
