Email Marketing Sales Tips (my latest podcast interview)

by Karen Talavera

10 02, 2017 | Posted in Email Marketing, Marketing Automation, Marketing Vision, Messaging Strategy, Strategy | 0 comments

Karen Talavera Podcast - Email Sales Tips I was recently interviewed by Doug Morneau for his Real Marketing Real Fast Podcast and invite you to give it a listen.  Here are some of the highlights we hit upon:

  • Email is going through a massive renaissance
  • Let behavior drive what you send. Track subscriber engagement with and response to your email, then follow up with messaging relevant to their content, offer and/or product interests
  • Think in terms of normal human dialog vs. "blasting": talk to your subscribers, not at them!
  • Have realistic expectations of what email can do. Use it to nurture and build relationships over time vs. expecting single messages to accomplish conversion in one fell swoop
  • Understand your customer's journey and align email messaging to key points on it
Click to listen or read the transcript. Then tell me - where do you see email marketing going? What do you agree or disagree with? I'd love to see your thoughts in comments blow. Enjoy!

  • Are reactivation campaigns worth it, or should I just cull unresponsive subscribers from our list?
  • How much marketing automation do I need? Do I need an ESP or MA platform?
  • Do multi-touch campaigns (like a welcome series) outperform single message-campaigns? Is the extra effort to create a series worth it?
  • Would my company benefit from reputation management and delivery services? What’s it worth?
  • Does dynamic content really pay off?
. . . and the list goes on. It’s often said

Machine Learning Enables Email Optimization

Time for a guest post this month from Kath Pay, fellow email marketing industry pro and panelist with me at the Email Innovations Summit hosted by Only Influencers. Read on as Kath shares her wisdom about how computer learning empowers email marketing innovation and response for optimal results.

Science Fiction or Reality?

"Machine learning" has moved out of science fiction and into real-life applications, like powering Tesla cars that run on autopilot and robots that can beat humans at the Japanese game of Go. For marketers, it gets them closer to their email nirvana: true 1:1 personalization on a mass scale. Machine learning, at its simplest, is a method of data analysis that allows computers to learn – to analyze, predict and act – without explicit instructions or programming. That last phrase – "without explicit instructions or programming" – highlights the difference between today's rule-based marketing automation and systems that use machine learning.
