Giving up the goods...
How many times have you gotten an email that was so irritating you immediately unsubscribed?
I think I lost count at 2 million!
It can make you cringe just thinking about figuring out what value, motivation, or exciting thing you can provide to your readers. So, they’ll see you as and someone they’re looking forward to receiving emails from versus someone on the verge of an unsubscribe.
Don’t think that because writing emails to your audience can be dreadful that it’s not important.
A recent Oberlo article says For every $1 you spend on emails marketing; you can expect an average return of $42.
Another report says $44 per $1, so we’re going in the right direction!
The same article says email users are expected to grow to 4.3 billion people by 2023.
That’s half of the world’s population!
So, if you’re like me you’d want to know some storytelling techniques to get more sales. Right? We gotcha covered…because email land is crazy! (Laughing not laughing ;-))
Winning email storytelling techniques:
- What’s the purpose of the email? What are you trying to convey?
- Forward/Backward Method – What are the objections, pain points, what myth can you prove wrong?
- What’s a core feeling or emotion?
- Tie in your life events
- Use segues not to sound salesy
- Remember, you don’t have to be perfect, just relatable.
Email marketing best practices:
- Write your emails like you were writing to a good friend.
- Act like you’re going on a date with someone you want to marry.
- Don’t be stuffy and overly traditional; keep it casual. Think of it more like you are going to hang out with some friends for a cookout versus a formal black-tie gala.
- Avoid thinking of your audience like a money tree. Focus more on how you can relate and bring them value.
- Be confident that your unique voice will resonate with them.
