- Your subject lines are boring.
- Generic primary content
- Your CTA is weak.
- You don’t test
- Your emails go unanswered
Your subject lines are boring
This is the first thing a potential client sees. If it doesn’t pique their interest before they even open the email, you’ve probably lost them. When writing subject lines, keep in mind that they should be urgent to arouse interest. Keep the subject line brief and personable. Encouraging recipients to open emails can raise open rates by 10-14%.
Generic primary content
Clients detest being treated like a number. Emails that fail to connect with the reader are frequently deleted. This can be solved by segmenting your email list and sending targeted offers to each group.
You’re offering too much
To save time, including numerous offers in one email can be overwhelming for the receiver. Make it easy for them to buy your goods or service with a clear call-to-action (CTA). Try to confine your communications to one strong offer.
Your CTA is weak
You can have the best subject line, offer, and image. But if your call-to-action (CTA) isn’t clear and easy to understand (e.g., “click here”), you’ll miss the goal.
You don’t test
If your campaign isn’t performing as expected, the fault could be with the subject line, CTA, or content. To solve a problem, test it. A/B testing sends two identical email offers with only one difference. If one version performs better than another, replace it. Change the subject line, CTA, content or any other element of your campaign.
Your emails go unanswered
An email list takes time to build. With erroneous contact information, some emails will bounce back or go to recipients who cannot act on them.
