When composing email marketing subject lines, templates and landing pages, marketers will use their knowledge, skills, research and instinct to create content for subscribers. But how many are testing their content? Split testing should occur at every phase and process of email marketing, otherwise there's too much guesswork involved.
CRO (conversion rate optimisation) is a marketing term often used in relation to website pages and UX (user experience) design. However, CRO can be applied to any marketing channel, throughout the different stages of the buyer’s journey. In email marketing, the importance of open rates can be overstated. Click-through rates and conversions are still the key metrics to judge success.
Facebook has long been a leading channel for paid social activity, with brands tailoring and targeting users, according to behavioural triggers, whilst promoting their key content or boosting their best performing organic posts. Other social channels are falling in line and enabling businesses more opportunities to promote their brand and products, as the necessity for paid campaigns increases.
Once you've grabbed your subscribers' attention and they're opening your marketing emails, you need to do everything you can to convince viewers to click on links, consume content and click on calls to action.
Using dynamic content and innovative technology in your email content or web pages is a great way to keep customers engaged, whilst increasing your chances of persuading customers to click on your calls to action (CTAs) and convert.
Calls to action (CTAs) are crucial elements of successful digital marketing campaigns. Whatever industry your business sits in, your marketing content and web pages need to carry clear, relevant and click-worthy CTAs. Optimising calls to action is a multi-layered process, which requires psychological research, as well as strategic tactics and testing.
There are many different reasons why customers engage with marketing content and marketers employ an array of tactics to boost this engagement. When it comes to CRO (conversion rate optimisation), your focus should be on the best way to get customers to click through to content and (CTAs) calls to action, which are often triggers to purchase.
Successful marketing requires good content. In digital marketing, the content needs to engage the customer with persuasive copywriting, bold visual impact and effective calls to action, in order to drive conversions. Whether the goal of your call to action (CTA) is a sale, email sign up or to direct customers to a piece of content or webpage, your customers need to be encouraged, nudged or instructed to click.
