Do you know what is email marketing?

Today on Planet's blog we will talk about email marketing, due to its importance in the automation of tasks, which can be of great interest for your eCommerce.

We will begin by defining email marketing, which involves sending communications via email, generally for commercial purposes, to specific subscribers.

In the previous post "3 tips to optimize your ecommerce", we highlighted the importance of creating segmented email lists based on your audience's interests and buying behavior. In this article, we will deal more specifically with the topic, emphasizing and explaining three tools that will facilitate segmentation.

Why use email marketing as a strategy?

First, it is a tool that you can use by investing a small amount of money, which is an opportunity for small businesses or those with little capital. In addition, it helps you to generate a database of your subscribers, and we already know how important data are.

On the other hand, it allows companies to use email marketing as a content marketing strategy, using a new channel to expand and complement the strategy through the periodic sending of newsletters to their subscribers.

How to use email marketing?

To implement your email marketing strategy you must start by establishing your communication and business objectives, that is, know why you want to use this strategy based on the needs of your company.

After you have a clear idea of what your objectives are, establish a strategy. To do this, you must be clear about the frequency of your publications, the type of content you are going to send, your communication style, etc.

After establishing the strategy, we move on to the "creative part", which consists of creating the emails. In this case, the tools we are going to explain below come into play, which will help us to give the right shape to our emails. In this part, we take into account the typography, text size, layout, wording, etc.

Finally, we come to the part of the measuring and analysis of the results, a fundamental part to determine what we are doing right or wrong in our email marketing strategy. The most important data to take into account in email marketing metrics are the opening rate of our emails, the clicks on our CTAs, the visibility of our website and the number of emails and the frequency of sending.
