Killer Email Content Strategies That Can’t Miss Tell your story like a pro, right there in those inboxes   ,[object Object],[object Object]
Email: the genre  everyone reads.
Those stories of email's demise? Yeah, not so much. Inbox-checking is a habit -- a national pastime, if you will.  Almost everyone  (93% of adults, to be precise) subscribes to at least one email marketing list, and ROI for email is still stronger than most marketing channels (more than $40 for every $1 spent). Email’s where you can tell your story and engage those folks who’ve invited you to their inbox.
Set your course and  roll out your plan.
Target your content: speak to your audience
Follow those best practices of design & content
Find relevance …  or make it.
Get seasonal, of course (minus the clichés)
Tie what you do to what everyone’s talking about
Pretend salt has something to do with summer? Sure, why not
Create relevance with your own new buzz
Create short stories along the way --  vignettes, not novels -- that capture a snippet of who you are.
Suggest something they wouldn’t have thought of but will find irresistible
Start a revolution and keep it rolling
Suggest that destiny is at stake
Show exactly who you are in unexpected ways. If that involves pink monsters, so be it.
Be personal and engaging at every turn.
Stage a “meet cute”
Tell them you miss them
Engage them even if they’re saying a goodbye of sorts
Get and stay connected along the way.  (Not in a creepy, all-seeing  eye kind of way.)
Integrate your email with social (and everywhere else)
Send surveys to ask your customers  what they want
Add it up. Know what’s  working and what’s not.
Check data and response levels  beyond open rates & CTR
How’s that story progressing?  Measure performance over time
Every word matters.  Make it memorable every  time (and possibly epic). @susangrayblue @emmaemail
