How To Create An Effective, Engaging, And Creative Email Campaign
If you’re like most businesses, you’ll probably want to take a step back and analyze your current tactics before you can begin implementing new ones. You need to know how to create a well-optimized email marketing sales funnel that works for you. This will involve tracking everything that you do, from the way that you write your creative email campaign to the way that you schedule follow-up calls with your prospects. It will involve a close examination of both your communications strategy and your sales model. To create a successful creative email campaign, there are four primary factors that you should keep in mind. They are as follows:
Identify Your Target Market
First, know who you’re trying to reach. There are many types of individuals out there buying and selling products and services through email. You need to identify which prospect segments you want to focus on. For example, if you’re a service provider or a mortgage broker; your emails should be geared to targeting homeowners in a specific geographical area; a loan officer focusing on a specific zip code; and a realtor targeting potential home buyers within a certain geographic area.

Finally, know your target audience. While you want to do your best to appeal to as many prospects as possible. Don’t waste time trying to reach a group of people who would be better off purchasing other products or services from a different company. You don’t want to saturate your email messages with offers that will lose your best prospects and drive them elsewhere.
Build an opt-in list and find out what their interests are
Second, know your end goal. Whether you’re using a lead generation system or simply sending out emails to your list of subscribers to encourage them to purchase a particular product, you need to have a clearly defined objective. Who do you hope to make money from? If you’re attempting to sell a home to a homeowner, you’ll want to focus your emails on the homeowner and how they could benefit from a home. Whereas, if you’re attempting to sell a loan to a new mortgage holder, you might want to focus your emails on the loan and what it would take for that person to secure a loan.

Third, know your product. You’ll want to identify the problems that your prospects have that are making them ineligible for your product or service. The sales funnel will allow you to offer that product or service to those prospects who are most likely to become your customers. After all, people who are serious about making a buy are not going to open your sales funnel if it’s full of sales pitches and worthless information.
As with any good marketing campaign, creating a well-optimized email marketing campaign starts with solid product knowledge, detailed planning, and a strategy to execute the plan. When every factor is in place, you can let your email marketing campaigns begin to reap the benefits. Your prospects will eagerly wait for your next message, knowing that what they’re receiving is honest from you about what you can do to help them. They’ll also know that you’re not going to try and sell them on anything. Your emails will be informative, yet not pushy.
