Google Tabs Changes in Gmail Promotional Email Marketing – Lyris Blog

  1. 1. 1 Lyris Connections Blog Excerpts From Our Most Popular Posts Google Tabs Changes Promotional Email Marketing By Eric Dezendorf Gmail has rolled out its new tabbed interface for the inbox. On initial viewing, marketers might see this change as a very negative one; however, here at Lyris we believe this next chapter in email viewing will be a very positive change for marketers. Engagement and value win out This new innovation underscores the trend of engagement and value that the marketplace has seen over the last few years. Sending your users relevant and targeted messages means even more. If your users know your messages contain promotions they’re interested in on a regular basis, they will still seek them out. If they are relevant enough, users can even move your messages to their primary folder. The new change to Gmail may be adopted by the whole marketplace, so remember to continue testing and tweaking your messages to get the highest returns. Do you notice that your Gmail users tend to convert quickly? Maybe increasing your flash sales to encourage people to check the promotions tab more often might be better for your bottom line. First, remember that your subscribers have signed up for your list and want to receive your promotional emails. Now, instead of your emails getting lost among personal messages, order confirmations, and social updates, users have a space to enter to view their promotions. Instead of your message competing for attention with an email from a close friend, users now enter a different space when they are ready to be marketed to, making them more receptive to your message. Users had to set up their own labels and folders before this newest innovation. With the new Gmail it is done for them, reducing the headaches that can come with an inbox set-up, making it even more likely that someone will sign up for your list.
