The What, Why and How of Drip Email Marketing
Posted on 04/09/2018
Imagine a world where nurturing leads into sales was wrapped up into one pretty, automated routine. The emails businesses send out to potential leads would always be relevant, the sales pipeline would have few leaks and conversion rates would increase. Does this sound too good to be true? Fortunately with drip email marketing, this ideal world can become a reality.
Drip email marketing, otherwise known as drip email campaigns, is the perfect way to automate the marketing and sales process, easily converting leads into customers. If you’re not sure where to start, then you’ve come to the right place. Today we dive into the what, why and how of drip email marketing.
Instead, through a drip email campaign, you can introduce the leads to the business, insert new information and include relevant calls to action. Perhaps the first email to the new leads goes out the day the sign up, the second goes out a few days later and the last goes out a week or so afterwards. Or—in the behavioral parameter—your new leads could receive an email when they sign up for the list, then if they respond to that call-to-action and later if they purchase a product or service. No matter which type of drip email campaign you set up, they can have an important impact on marketing efforts.
Also, they tend to have pretty great results. According to research conducted by the email-marketing suite Emma, relevant, targeted emails produce 18-times more revenue than those broadcasted to the entire client base. People who read drip emails are also more likely to click the links within them than in regular emails, with a 119% click rate increase.
