As in any type of email marketing, a tip to get you closer to success is to clean your email lists. No matter how big or long your list is, it won’t make any difference if it’s not made with good quality.

  • Personal emails

Make your emails personal. You can not only do this by using your recipient’s first name, which is a good start. But you go that extra step towards success, you should include other personal information, maybe refer to preferences or past orders. Make sure your emails sound human, and not like they were written by a robot.

  • Use great subject lines

You’ll need great subject lines. As mentioned and discussed in our previous blog post, subject lines play a huge role. Your subject line is what needs to stand out in your recipient’s inbox.
