Email is now the primary channel for marketing communication, yet reader engagement has never been more challenging. How can you be sure that your results are as good as they can be? And how do you persuade new potential customers to sign up, open up, click through – and do all of this on a regular basis?

This workshop takes you from promoting your e-news service to creating emails to engage and get those readers clicking. You will learn how to transform your email marketing to be a cut above that of your competitors, reaching that elusive audience, and more.

Course Outline: 

  • The sign-up process: what makes people subscribe - and stay subscribed?
  • A non-technical guide to firewalls, spam filters and sender reputation.
  • How to write killer subject lines and grab attention in the preview pane.
  • Establishing your email "voice", and judging how much you need to say in your emails.
  • Format and design, as well as the balance of copy, visuals and links.
  • One-off marketing emails, regular newsletters, and the value of automated emails.
  • Metrics and benchmarks - how well are your emails performing?
  • Customer engagement strategies.
  • Managing challenges, from balancing "creative" with templates, to negotiating with colleagues over email content.
