Subtle Email Marketing
Internet users receive hundreds of emails every day asking them to purchase those items or visit certain websites. Although these emails arrive every day in the inboxes of unsuspecting Internet users, these emails pay very little attention to any of them. That is because emails that are blatant ads are also seen as spam. The majority of Internet users have very little spam tolerance. Spam responses appear to range from completely ignoring the emails and banning the email addresses from sending future emails to submitting the emails for further review to their Internet service provider. We know that many Internet marketers fail to keep their email marketing subtle. This article will also include some valuable details about how subtle email marketing can be maintained so that it is not perceived as spam.
One of the most critical requirements for ensuring your email marketing is subtle and will not be seen as spam is to provide the recipients with anything of quality.
This could include informative posts, fun quizzes, or other useful information that are sure to be useful to the target audience members. When email recipients understand that an email they have received offers them something valuable, such as expertise or information about a specific niche topic, they are much more likely to spend some time checking the email because they do not consider the email to be spam. In addition to using this copy to reassure recipients that the email is not spam, by offering subtle ads, business owners may also take advantage of this copy. This includes product references in the email in the articles or links to your website.
It can also help to keep ads very discreet by avoiding language which makes outrageous claims.
It is likely to be seen as blatant advertising to use superlatives to explain the greatness of individual goods. When this happens, website owners are unlikely to assume that anything found in the email is legitimate because they think the whole email is just one big advertisement for your goods or services.
In running an email marketing campaign, another way to keep ads subtle is to only give your email to those who are likely to be highly interested in your goods and services.
This is critical because they are not likely to take the email seriously when email recipients receive an email that does not represent their interests at all and may interpret the email as blatant advertising. If the email is sent only to those who share a mutual interest, however, the email seems more personalized. In this situation, the recipients of the email are not likely to interpret and product references as blatant advertising because they understand that goods or services often need to be listed.
Finally, when the content of the email is written as though it is not coming directly from the company owner, email marketing remains subtle.
The copy may talk of the goods and services as if a third party was offering them. This makes the ads seem more discreet, as it does not seem to come directly from the owner of the company.
Finally, by holding reference to your own website to an absolute minimum, business owners can help ensure that their email marketing campaigns are not perceived as overt advertisements. Many Internet users also perceive links simply as an advertising from one website to another.
For this purpose, keeping links to a minimum and carefully weaving these links into even the most reasonably innocuous copy may be worthwhile for business owners who are marketing an email campaign.
The links should be given as if they were just included to give you the chance to learn more about the goods and not as a way to persuade you to buy these products. To ensure the copy conveys the correct message and has the desired impact on the email recipients, it may be worth considering hiring a writer with this sort of experience.
