Is email marketing worth it?
Yes! Although social media and other forms of digital marketing are gaining popularity, email marketing remains an effective way to increase traffic and boost sales. It also generally requires minimal effort.
How do I get email subscribers?
One of the easiest ways to get email subscribers is to have an email list sign up option in clear view throughout your website. You can also get creative and offer incentives, such as a discount on your product or service, if users sign up.
What details should I ask for with the sign-up form?
Remember that with email sign up forms, less of often more. People get scared off by lengthy sign up forms with multiple compulsory fields so try to keep it as simple as possible. If you want additional information for a reason, such as birthday discounts, mention this on the form and make it clear if the fields are optional.
What are the different types of email marketing?
There are a number of different ways your business can embrace email marketing, including:
• Regular newsletters
• Product or service updates
• Discounts or bonus offers
• Event invitations
• Transactional and confirmation emails
• Welcome emails
How do I know if my email marketing is successful?
It’s all about analytics! If you’ve started an email marketing campaign, you need to ensure you have software with strong reporting capabilities so you can gauge just how successful your email marketing is and what changes need to be made. Don’t guess, use the available technology to get real data.
How do I stop people from unsubscribing?
Firstly, you must ALWAYS include an unsubscribe option in your email marketing – people will just get annoyed if they can’t opt out easily. The best way to retain subscribers is to keep your email marketing interesting, relevant and eye catching.
How do I keep my email marketing interesting?
The most important thing to remember is to provide value to your customers with your emails. You’re going to end up in the junk mail pretty quickly if your emails are boring or don’t offer anything appealing. Including offers, incentives and interesting information in your emails can make customers look forward to seeing what you have to say. An awesome design also doesn’t hurt!

Director Bodie is just absolutely fantastic - he was completely honest with me and could have easily taken several thousand dollars off me, but he advised my business was too small for a company like Dilate, and gave me loads of brutally honest feedback that I have actioned immediately on my site. I wish I wasn't a "DNQ lead - Too Small" but hey- And perhaps one day I'll grow up to be a real player like Dilate - but for now, here's some good karma for you.Lawrence Hobart
