Building Campaigns That Convert
To score a winning goal, you need to take your shot at exactly the right time with precise aim. Scoring big in the email marketing game involves a similar focus on perfecting your aim – which means you need the perfect email campaign in place to pull off the right moves.
Set-up with the Drip Campaign
A drip campaign is a series of marketing emails delivered incrementally over a period of time. Once set up, drip campaigns serve as an automatic way to stay top-of-mind with your leads, build brand awareness, manage relationships, and increase your sales rates.
Once you’ve outlined the particular email sequence, a drip campaign is pretty easy to create. You can build an educational email campaign designed to provide users with valuable and relevant information. You can build a campaign to nurture leads down the sales pipeline, sending them emails with calls to action and incentives to convert. Other types of drip campaigns include upselling and cross-selling campaigns, welcome and onboarding campaigns, campaigns geared at increasing brand awareness, and much more.
Here are some examples of different types of campaigns…
Email Nurturing Campaigns
Email nurturing campaigns are the cornerstone of marketing automation. They help you nurture leads down the sales funnel, dynamically segment customer lists, and spread brand awareness – all while delivering exceptional end-to-end ROI. Simply put, nurturing campaigns are all about sending people exactly the right information at exactly the right time.
An email nurturing campaign is designed to engage leads with relevant content and frequent calls to action, pushing them to take the next step in the sales cycle. This type of campaign is ideal for longer-tailed sales cycles, as it enables you to maintain a high level of engagement and momentum over time. By combining this with lead scoring, you know exactly when to pass a lead from nurturing to your sales team.
Onboarding & Welcome Campaigns
From the very first moment a new customer signs on with you, it’s important to be attentive. Welcome and onboarding campaigns allow you to provide customers with helpful and relevant content right from the start, guaranteeing improved customer satisfaction and retention rates for your business.
