Steps to plan your email marketing and make improvements in the New Year.

  1. Analyze your goals

If you set expectations for 2020, now is the time to determine whether you have achieved them.

Focus on the goals you set in the last year and address the given questions:

  • Did email marketing help you generate more revenue? How much your sale increased as a result of your email marketing?
  • Have you built relationships with your subscribers? How was that?
  • Do you achieve your targets?
  • What targets do you want to achieve by focusing on email marketing in 2021
  • How are you going to find your potential customers by communicating with them by email?

Use the answers to direct your SHARP goals in 2021. This is an essential first step in preparing the email marketing campaign for the upcoming year.

SHARP stands for

Straightforward: The target is supposed to be difficult but within reach.

Humble: give yourself a deadline to achieve your goal.

Achievable: You need to be sure your target is ambitious. However, it can be done with your existing budget, resources, and specialized skills.

Realistic: Make sure that you set milestones to monitor your success.

Precise: be precise while setting your goals.

  1. Examine your ideal subscriber

The chances are that you have a particular target demographic that you want to see to buy your services or goods. That's what we call your 'ideal subscriber.'

But selling people can change over time. And if you have specified demographics to lead your email marketing, it might be time to consider whether that is really the right representation of your ideal audience.

It is tough to manage your email campaigns to the best of your abilities without knowing who you're selling to.

Consider the challenges you will solve in your email strategies, your product, or services to assess your demographics.

  • Are you going to address their trigger points?
  • Who's newly added to your email list?
  • Have they had any big improvements in the last year?

It is necessary to build a good understanding of the target audience you want to reach in your marketing campaign. It will enhance your content formation and email marketing strategies.

  1. Understand the current problems, desires, and needs of your target audience

People's interests are naturally changing over time. The challenges they have encountered in the past could not be the same they are now having.

Care about it. How did your subscribers improve in the last year? How to help them overcome their issues right now?

You have to do some research to answer all the above questions. 

  • Get conversations with your subscribers to learn about the personal challenges they face, what they need to fix their challenges, and how your product solves these challenges.
  • You can ask for this in your email marketing campaign. Add an emotion widget at the end of your emails and get detailed feedback on what they liked and what not in your email.
  • Your email analysis will also tell a compelling storyline and give you an idea of what information you need. ; Check your open rates and CTRs
  • Identifying your content strategies in advance with an editorial calendar will help you find out what you're going to be sending and when. It will also help you organize new lead attractions and create email campaigns around each of them.
  1. Determine the required frequency of sending emails

How many emails did you send to your audience? Does the frequency appear to work? If so, it's great! If not—or if you get complaints that you send too much or too little— it's time to rethink and do some study.

Don't worry if you' don't know which ideal frequency email is appropriate for your company; try looking at what other email marketers are doing in the market. Do you think they're working for them?

Understand, the volume is not the absolute way to go. More emails do not mean better conversions. If you did not fully understand what the right frequency is, try testing it.

Check what days of the week would give you better outcomes, time of day, and even how much you deliver. With split checking, you can test something in your inbox and make better choices to boost your marketing.
