8 Best Practices to Elevate Your Campaigns and Boost ROI
Ready to take your CPG shopper marketing strategy to new heights? With so many digital channels available, it can be difficult to choose which one will best support your goals.
Don't overlook the power of email marketing! It may not have the instant gratification of SMS, but it still packs a punch in terms of reach and engagement.
In fact, a recent study by Campaign Monitor found that 99% of consumers check their email daily, and email marketing has an average return on investment (ROI) of $38 for every $1 spent.
If you're interested in incorporating email into your shopper strategy, here are 8 best practices to help you get started.
Segment Your List
One size does not fit all when it comes to email marketing. Segment your list based on demographic information, past purchasing behavior, or even interests. This allows you to tailor your message and make it more relevant to each individual recipient.
Personalize Your Emails
Adding a personal touch goes a long way in building trust and rapport with your audience. Use their first name, include relevant information about their past purchases, or send birthday and anniversary emails. The more personal, the better.
Write Compelling Subject Lines
Subject lines are the first thing your audience sees and can make or break whether they open your email. Keep them short, sweet, and to the point. Try using numbers, urgency, or humor to grab their attention.
Use Eye-Catching Visuals
Make sure to include eye-catching visuals that are relevant to your message. Whether it's a product image or a graph that illustrates your point, visuals help tell your story in a more engaging way.
Add Available Retailers
Add the retailer logos to your creative. This helps the customer visualize that the incentive is for in-store, not online. If the retailer has banner stores, we recommend you add those as well.
Make It Easy to Take Action
Include clear calls-to-action (CTAs) in your emails to make it easy for your audience to take the next step. This could be clicking through to your website, making a purchase, or forwarding the email to a friend.
A/B Test Your Emails
Make sure to test and optimize your email campaigns. Try different subject lines, send emails at different times of day, and experiment with different visuals to see what resonates best with your audience.
