Do you currently have a cold mailing list, unresponsive, low open rates, even lower click through rates?
Don’t worry most affiliate marketers suffer from that very same problem.
It’s most likely that the reason your list is cold is because you have not effectively grown your relationship with them.
I will now discuss three ways that you can warm up your list and help you improve on your poor email marketing results.
First, you have to inject some passion into your email subject lines.
Try shock tactics.
Be very real with your subject line, ensure your email contents are relevant to minimize spam reports.
To improve your subject lines, check out popular sites so as Digg and mimic their headlines, or start a swipe file from more successful marketers and base your own subjects lines loosely on theirs.
Second, your email contents must be of value.
There is no point getting a person to open your email if the contents are useless.
It is simply not good enough to send people on your email list promotion after promoting.
The 2 to 1 ratio is quite a popular method, which means you send 2 emails containing free, valuable information and the third email is a promotional email.
Lastly, structure you email correctly.
Make it easy for the reader to know what action to take.
Always include a ps.
Try to write your emails as if you were talking to a friend, keep them friendly.
Story telling is highly effective too if you can take a real life situation and blend it into your email content.
Above all you should always be honest.
Never make false claims or lie in an email.
Keep it real!
Now you know three ways to improve you email marketing success, head over to your autoresponder and amend your current emails.
One last point, know your numbers, most autoresponders provide very detailed statistics on open and click rates, be sure to monitor them and adjust if required.
