Email marketing is a very useful tool for online businesses, but only when it is done right. If done in the wrong manner, you will drive potential clients away. It is therefore very important – as a small online business owner – to known and understand what makes an effective marketing email, and how to write one.
Many companies use fancy email formats and pay big dollars to get ‘professionals’ to write their marketing emails for them. Fortunately for you, you don’t actually need to do anything more than write a few paragraphs of content and press send.
The first thing that you need to do is identify the topic of your email. Failing to do this will set you up for failure immediately. Identifying an email topic will help you decide what you are going to focus on, and will help you decide on the right content for your message.
