News from the past week
- Market soars as Zoom falls. As the stock market surged in the wake of a promising vaccine announcement, some tech companies were hurt by the news. Zoom and Peloton, which have thrived during the lockdown, saw a sharp drop.
- The return of TV ads. After a long pandemic slowdown, the TV ad market is making a comeback. This is partially due to a record-breaking year for political ads, which gave networks a healthy Q4 boost.
- Spotify steps up strategy. Keeping with their podcast acquisition strategy, Spotify has announced plans to buy out Megaphone, a platform which provides tools for podcasters and connects them to advertisers for brand deals.
- Privacy problems in streaming. TV streaming is a promising new frontier for marketers, but they don’t want to make the same mistakes they saw in online advertising. They hope to utilize dynamic audience targeting but without invoking another user privacy controversy.
‘Tis the Season for Email Marketing
Strategies to aid your marketing
With the at-home holidays fast approaching, businesses are wondering how to tailor their email marketing strategy so they stand out from the record-setting amount of promotional emails flooding inboxes. Here are a few ways to ensure your email marketing reaches the right people for the best chance of success.
1. Start now. If you haven’t already begun your email marketing efforts, you should do so immediately. The usual Black Friday and Cyber Monday mentality has shifted this year and many businesses now consider the entire month of November to be the time for holiday promotions.
2. Make a list (and check it twice!) Make sure your email list and content are optimized and up-to-date. Remove unknown users to protect your sender reputation and check for mistyped domains.
3. Use action verbs. Your subject lines are the most crucial element to your email marketing since they are the primary driving force for open rates. Use action verbs to promote a call-to-action as much as possible without looking like spam.
4. Keep it personal. Personalizing email content goes much further than just having your customers’ name in the subject line. Take steps to study their multi-channel behavior. Use this data to create triggered messaging prompted by actions such as cart abandonment or what product/product groups they showed interest in.
