Here are 9 things to keep in mind to create an effective email strategy (click here for an in-depth guide to email broadcasts as well as 9 examples to draw inspiration from).

1. Build an organic email list 

You should only send your email broadcast to those who have opted-in. This way, you’ll target those who are interested in your content and avoid compliance issues

2. Segment your email list 

Organize subscribers into smaller lists based on characteristics that help define what products, services or messaging will interest them.

3. Identify your goals 

Nail down your goals before you proceed. Do you want people to click through to your site, subscribe to your service or order products? 

4. Send your email at the right time 

Studies suggest that Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. is the ideal time. Pipedrive can schedule your emails to arrive at specific times, including in different timezones. 

5. Balance the frequency

Sending too many broadcast emails will hurt your deliverability. Landing at the right frequency will lead to increased open rates and conversions. 

6. Track performance and adjust strategy 

Use A/B testing to check which design or copy works best for your audience and optimize accordingly. 

7. Get the tone right

Write different emails for different segments. 18 to 25 year-olds will respond differently to 45 to 55 year-olds. 

8. Have a catchy subject line

Your subject line should draw people’s attention. Use the sense of urgency and the fear of missing out to draw customers in.

9. Use a marketing automation tool

Using email marketing software to integrate your emails and track their effectiveness is essential to crafting a successful email campaign.
