Segment Audience and Filter Activity
Choose any of these autoresponder recipes, and choose which activity you want to trigger the automated email series. You can segment your audience based on their email activity, purchase behavior, user fields, demographics, and email subscription status. This way, your automated emails would be highly targeted.
This will ultimately help you in keeping your email healthy: Low unsubscription rate, low spam complaints, and less bounce rates. This will not only help you in increasing your email deliverability rate but also you can stay clear from getting blocked by ISPs.
After segmentation and activity filter, focus on the content of the autoresponder email series. You can type in the content of multiple emails and also set the time delays that each email should have. This way, you can send sensible automated emails at the right time, which will give the right nudge to the subscribers/ potential customers when they need it.
Content of The Automated Emails
You probably know content plays a major role in email marketing. But it is more than that in automated emails: it can be the best thing for your business, depending on the quality of your email copy.
The content of an automated email is designed for improving your engagement with your subscribers. It’s an opportunity to send how-to guides on your new products, nudge them to buy a product in their cart, announce a product launch, reminder to stock up the products again, and many more.
And based on your subject lines and preview text, the subscribers decide whether to open your emails or not. So never write click baits! It might give you higher open rates but it will most definitely backfire with them marking your emails as spam.
So what should you do?
Give them what they expect. Keep your email content, subject, and preview text relevant to each other! And make sure your automated emails’ content is valuable to the email receiver.
With BayEngage, you can send text emails to check how it looks before sending the email campaigns to your subscribers. You will also have access to 300+ responsive email templates with drag and drop features and stock images. Choose the right email template for your email campaign.
