Email marketing is the go-to message delivery method for most businesses and organizations that need to reach large audiences. Modern email marketing takes place in an environment complete with email designers, AI content creation and automated journey building tools. Whilst it might seem complex and overwhelming, with the right tools from Click and a well-thought-out approach, email marketing will achieve excellent results.

This article explores the top three most important aspects to consider for email marketing.

Optimized Email Templates 

Did you know that mobile users check their emails three times more than non-mobile users? What about the fact that one out of every three clicks on an email comes from a mobile device? With these statistics in mind, the goal of a marketer is to not only create engaging emails but also make sure these emails are optimized for mobile.

What Is Mobile Optimization?

Optimization refers to a webpage or email’s ability to adjust to different screen sizes (in this case mobile) without skewing designs or rendering content unresponsive.

Email templates that promote a mobile-first design are leading the way by giving marketers the ability to edit emails easily in multiple formats, seeing their designs on both desktop and mobile screens. Designing your emails to work correctly in both formats provides a more seamless customer journey across devices.

Deliverability 

Email deliverability, and the changing standards set by key players such as Gmail and Yahoo, has been one of the top news stories within marketing this year.

What is Email Deliverability? 

This term refers to “an email’s ability to deliver into your contacts’ inboxes, and not get caught in spam or blocked entirely.” Changes in deliverability standards have evolved as customers demand more personalization and an inbox free from spam. Failure to adhere to the new standard reduces your own businesses deliverability score meaning your emails are more likely to be black-listed and automatically sent to the Junk folder.

The three key factors to look out for in this area are Email Authentication, Easy Unsubscribe Options and Email Relevance. – Watch our recent Ask the Expert: Deliverability webinar on-demand to find out more.

Email Authentication ensures that your emails are sent from credible sources, identified through IP addresses.

Easy Unsubscribe Options focuses on the customers’ ability to perform a one-click unsubscribe using a clearly defined link held within an email.

Email Relevance refers to the connection between company and customer. Sending emails to inboxes which have a history of not engaging with your content will damage your deliverability score – so make sure you clean out any cold leads from your email lists!
