If you haven't used Click Segmentation or the Social Share Bar before — don't worry! Let us explain how these features work and can help you succeed with your email marketing.
Click Segmentation- Send people emails they’ll really want and get better results with targeted emails. Our segmentation tools empower small businesses and nonprofits with an ability to easily identify and group like contacts in order to send only the most relevant emails that deliver big results. Your email contacts likely aren’t all alike and want different messages depending on their needs. Segmenting them is an easy way to improve results, drive more business and keep customers happy.
Read More Action Block- Wondering how to make a newsletter that drives action? It comes down to using two simple words: “Read more.” Why? If your business or nonprofit is in the habit of sending jam-packed newsletters, filled with updates, articles, and tips — you might be unintentionally turning your readers off. Rather than overwhelming your subscribers with text-heavy emails,add Read More blocksto let readers quickly skim your emails and find the topics that interest them.
Personalized Subject Lines- A lot goes into crafting the perfect subject line. The subject line of your email is one of the first impressions someone gets from your brand, especially when you’re sending them an email for the first time. That’s where personalization in email subject lines comes into play. Are you on a first name basis? Do you know what their interests are? Using what you already know about the customer in your favor should be your No.1 priority while sending marketing emails.
Social Share Bar- You can make it easy for your contacts to share your email on their social media pages by including branded buttons for Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. When your contact clicks on the button, they'll be prompted to log into their social media account so they can share your email in a post to their social media feed. The clicks are also added to the Email Details page and to the Reporting tab, so you can see which of your contacts are the most socially engaged.
