Abandoning sale after click through

It is the most irritating of results in email marketing. The customer clicks through to the further information page, spends some time on it, presumably assessing the technical details, and then goes through to the landing page. We think it's all over. But then they abandon the purchase.  The reason can be difficult to fathom. … READ MORE »

Frustrations of email marketing click throughs

It is a peculiar, not to mention frustrating, fact of email marketing that some subscribers will click through to the landing page and then abandon the transaction. The question that comes to mind is: Why? The correct answer will show the way to increase completions.  It is not as if the shopper is feeling the … READ MORE »

Hide Adverts And Click-Throughs In Full Sight

I’ve stored an advert to subscribe to an email marketing list for a little over nine months. It was in an enewsletter, with a hotlink to a landing page for ‘regular offers of products, often at a reduced price’. Whilst I didn’t expect to be offered anything I particularly wanted, I thought I’d give it … READ MORE »

Testing your click-through rate

There’s only one way of assessing the overall success of an email marketing campaign and that is by the return on investment. It’s the only metric that matters. However, you need to concentrate on the details rather than go for changes to the total.  The function of a marketing email is to get your subscribers … READ MORE »

Issues with email marketing click-through rates

Some years ago I paid to attend a problem-solving course. In many ways, it changed my life despite the methods I was taught being all too obvious. I was given a model, with lots of sub-routines, but the main thrust was to break a problem into many smaller ones. The model works for wars as … READ MORE »

I used to edit a magazine. The layout, design, images and copy are there to encourage the person to read the article and become lost in it. It means, hopefully, that they will come back for more. The problem is that editors and graphic designers look at the page from their specific skills point of … READ MORE »

The New Normal For Email Marketing

There’s no way to sugar this pill; much of your email marketing data, secured over many campaigns, and the basis for your business, is probably out of date. It’s not useless, though. Far from it. The post-Covid and post-Brexit marketing world comes with changes for us. The success of email marketing is in its data, … READ MORE »

Write Copy Your Subscribers Want To Read

Some years ago, when history was my main pastime, I belonged to a group which rented a rather well-known TV historian for a talk on the British Civil Wars. It was fascinating. However, the most memorable part was the post wine and finger buffet Q&A where, loosened by the rather decent vintage, the speaker wandered … READ MORE »

Be Clear About Price In Your Campaign

A couple of years ago I was going to buy a new car. Following my normal exhaustive procedure before spending out on big ticket objects, I checked the reviews from various sources, such as motoring magazines, eventually coming up with a shortlist of three vehicles from two manufacturers. It was then a visit to see … READ MORE »

‘No-reply’ In Non-Marketing Emails

Don’t you just hate them?  There are very few absolutes in email marketing. It means you normally have to discover what’s hurting your RoI yourself, but some factors are obscure, and if everyone else does it, why shouldn’t you? That’s the mantra of failure. You have to find out what works for you. I am … READ MORE »
