Email Marketing Investments that pay off

With endless approaches christened “best practices” and infinite blog posts on the latest email optimization tactics, it can be difficult to determine where it’s worth investing your email marketing money and manpower. Questions like these abound:
  • Does my company need abandoned cart/browse campaigns if we’re not an ecommerce or retail marketer?
  • 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.

Email List Segmentation: How Much is Too Much? Not Enough?

by Karen Talavera

07 27, 2015 | Posted in Email Lists, Email Marketing, Response Improvement, Targeting & Segmentation | 0 comments

You probably know by now that segmentation improves email marketing performance significantly, so if you’re still operating primarily in “batch and blast” mode it’s time to start slicing and dicing your subscriber file. Marketers who practice list segmentation see better open and click-through rates, fewer unsubscribes and better deliverability. The reasons are obvious: segmentation creates discreet audiences we can laser-target with offers, creative, and information crafted specifically for them, at just the right time. This in turn improves relevancy and

Three MORE Email Marketing Improvement Challenges for 2014

by Karen Talavera

05 09, 2014 | Posted in Email Marketing, Marketing Vision | 0 comments

Last month we looked at three email marketing improvement challenges for 2014. This month I want to give you three more that can maximize email’s contribution to your bottom line. Although improving email open and click-through rates seems an ever-present task, I encourage you to expand your focus beyond mere campaign-by-campaign process metrics and try these program-level objectives on for size instead: 1)     Increase Subscriber Engagement Truly increasing subscriber engagement with your email campaigns means much more than merely boosting open and click-through rates, although both are important measures of engagement. It means analyzing open and click-through reach – that is, the proportion of your subscriber base, among all subscribers, who have opened or clicked at least one message over a period of time.

As a marketing channel, email is coming off a banner year! 2013 boasts some of the most significant investment and acquisition activity in the industry’s 20-year history (Salesforce.com acquired ExactTarget for almost $3 billion, Oracle offered $1.58 billion for Responsys).

Help! My Email Open Rates Are Falling and Can’t Get Up

by Karen Talavera

08 28, 2013 | Posted in Email Marketing, Messaging Strategy, Metrics | Measuring Results, Response Improvement | 0 comments

email open rates In my ongoing series of email marketing conundrums, I couldn’t possibly overlook this one: declining email marketing open rates. Although much has been written on the subject, my goal is to provide you with not just a diagnostic checklist for investigating why open rates are falling nor to hand you a “best practices” list of what to do to reverse the decline, but to go beyond that by (most of all) giving you a “reality check” on the subject and presenting a new, more constructive way to see this situation, as well as a new mindset on email marketing performance measurement altogether. In short: while we do need to pay attention to declining open rates, there’s too much focus on them at the expense of more meaningful email marketing performance measures.

Measuring Email Marketing Impact; Email Marketing AnalysesToday it’s not enough to know how an individual email campaign performed on a one-time basis.  To learn whether or not your company is deriving true value from email marketing, you need the both broader and deeper perspectives offered by program- and list-level analyses. While standard email campaign performance metrics like delivery, open and click-through rates have their place, without looking beyond them the true impact of your email marketing – and opportunities for continuous improvement - will go undetected.
