  • We spent the past weekend in Berlin @wceurope! We asked attendees to pin where they’re from and their dream WordCamp destination on our map. So, now we’re asking you—where are you from and what is your dream WordCamp destination? Tell us in the comments! 🗺🌎
  • Amy’s Ice Creams (@amysicecreams) was established in 1984 and has since been known as one of the most quintessential Austin eateries. Know for their quirky interiors, flavors (Buffy the Campfire Slayer, anyone? 🔥🍨) and their delicious Mexican Vanilla flavor — this place embodies Keep Austin Weird, and we like that. 🍨 What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
  • @bygeorgiagrace started her blog almost four years ago. “At the time, I worked in finance, and I knew absolutely nothing about building a website or about how to “do” social media. All I knew was that I had a vision and a goal to build a blog as a creative outlet for myself and as a self-sustaining business that would allow me to have independence in my life.

The process of getting my blog up and running was a walk in the park because of Bluehost, and because of that, I unequivocally recommend them to anyone who is looking to start a website or blog or to anyone who already has one but who is looking to upgrade or switch over to a different platform. Bluehost is one of those brands that has earned my loyalty because their product is the cream of the crop, and their service just puts the user experience over the top.” We are honored that we could be a part of Georgia’s journey to building a successful blog from scratch and helping her find the perfect place to WordPress. 💙 Is it your turn next?

  • Asking a question

Personalizing

This can work in two different ways. You can use the recipient’s name if you have it in the introductory line. For instance, you can use something simple as ‘’Hi Mary’’. Most of the email marketing platforms including Constant Contact and MailChimp have special tools which allow you to automatically fill in the recipient’s first contact name in the email blasts. This can be followed by a friendly greeting in case you are having a working relationship with your recipient. This is considered to one of the greatest ways of personalizing your message.

By adding value

Nowadays, people are inundated with emails on a daily basis; day-in, day-out. This means that you need to think carefully before sending any email. Try to ask yourself what would distinguish your email from the rest. Remember that you are joining the email list to receive something valuable for being signed up. Your email list should be taken as something special. You also need to treat your potentials subscribers in the same manner.

 

Emails which are related to sales must include all the exclusive deals meant for your email subscribers. It is also important that you update your existing customers by giving them new tricks and tips which might be helpful to them.

Getting right to your point

Just try to figure out how people read emails. Most of the mails are scanned right from the subject line and the preview pane. They are not read entirely. You should, therefore, avoid inundating the beginning of the emails by use of over-abundance icons, images, and introductory language. Instead, you should try to utilize that space to address your critical points.
