3. Continuous Conversation

Email marketing is more than just sending a promotional or self-promoting mails. It's all about conversing with your existing customers and prospects. By sending them email messages frequently will keep them engaged and thus helps you to develop a strong customer relationship.

4. Informative Content

For a successful email marketing you must think beyond just sending a few occasional sales or promotional emails. Make sure your email campaigns are not full of self-promotion. Keep your readers interested by including informative or entertaining or problem solving content in your email message. If your email content is focused on your customers interest then they are more likely to share the same on social media too. Make sure your email message has not more than 10% of promotional content and rest of the 90 % must contain latest news, events, or address their pain points.

Irrespective to whatever email marketing services you use, make sure that you create a template design meeting your business and marketing requirements.

For sending an email newsletter on a regular basis, make sure that the template includes your company logo, colors, and font style in order to give professional look.

On an average, more than 75 per cent of email recipient's check their emails on their mobile and less than 12 per cent of emails has a responsive template designed specifically for mobile devices.
