2019 Email Marketing Conference Preview

by Karen Talavera

01 29, 2019 | Posted in Email Marketing, Events | 0 comments

One of the most common questions I see in every email networking and membership group I belong to is “If I can only attend one conference this year, which one should it be?”

It’s a valid and critically important question! Considering that most companies budget for marketing team members to attend just one single event per year, and taking into consideration time out of the office and travel costs, the decision isn’t easy. And feedback can be soooo biased!

Abandonment Recovery Email Strategies for the Non-Retailer

by Karen Talavera

01 26, 2018 | Posted in Email Marketing, Marketing Automation, Messaging Strategy, Response Improvement, Strategy | 0 comments

Cart Abandonment Recovery Email Strategies for the rest of us Shopping cart abandonment emails—aka cart recovery campaigns—have long been a mainstay in the campaign arsenal of retailers and e-tailers, but what about the rest of us? Can we benefit from abandonment recovery campaigns, and should they be an essential in email marketing programs? Brands, companies and products that don’t normally lend themselves to e-commerce or naturally have longer and more winding customer journeys than retail also have engagement and conversion points along the way. If abandoned, these missed conversion opportunities represent lost revenue. So even though “the rest of us” may not have online shopping carts on our websites or an e-commerce business model, it absolutely makes sense to be listening for abandonment signals and responding with recovery email campaigns. Let’s consider a few scenarios and—with insight from those early-adopter retailers— lay down best practices for abandonment recovery that are widely adaptable to nearly any email marketer (click to continue)

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!

Today, email continues to be the leading digital channel by which brands and organizations communicate with their customers. In an ever changing digital landscape, tablets and smartphones have made it easier for people to check their emails anywhere, all the time.

Despite email being a critical way for businesses to connect with their customers, commercial email may not always successfully land in the inbox let alone achieve its intended result of being opened, let alone read. In this post, we’re going to look at why your emails aren’t being delivered and how we can ensure they successfully make it into subscriber inboxes.
