Tips on how to create effective promotional emails

To prevent your marketing efforts from being useless and help you work out the promotional process, we're going to share a few ideas from our professional experience in email marketing.

1. Keep it simple

Keep in mind that your message needs to bring immediate value to the recipients, and you definitely don't want them to miss the point of the campaign.

However, you shouldn't send a blank email, either. Fill the email template with relevant content for a better understanding of the offer, but do it wisely and make sure you trigger the pain point of your potential customers.

2. Avoid spam

Creating promotional emails isn’t all about beautiful design. You need to consider all factors that can influence your deliverability rates, such as a reliable email service provider and a clean email list.

To learn more about email deliverability and how to avoid a spam folder, read the blog post below.

3. Grab subscribers’ attention with a clear subject line

Good promotional emails should start with an interesting subject line. Just as any other email. But, to make more sales, you really need to do some analytics, find your customers’ pain points, and work out some eye-catchy subject lines.

4. Set a clear call to action

The call to action in your promotional email must be appealing and clear. Again, there's no need to come up with something extraordinary. You just have to make it clear what email subscribers will get after clicking your CTA button.

5. Work on your signature 

As we mentioned before, personal connection always makes things smoother. And it will be a bit more difficult to ignore the message if it's sent from a real person, not just a company.

Equip your signature with your name, company name, position, links for social media, and contact number to the footer of your promotional emails.

6. Don't forget about follow-ups

If you've ever worked with sales in email marketing, you probably know that it's quite hard to sell something without a follow-up. Your subscribers may forget about your previous email, so you need to remind them about yourself with extra messages.

Don’t be pushy, though. Your follow-up emails should be a friendly reminder, not a demand.

Why you should use Stripo for email marketing

1. Pre-designed promotional email templates

Even if you import a template from one email builder to another one, you can still edit it with Stripo without coding skills. You may replace pictures, edit text, and modify the entire email structure. To learn how to add your personal touch, please refer to these links:

2. Synchronized modules

This is a game-changing feature for email marketers because it allows you to edit text across various templates.

It is a lifesaver when you need to update contact information or edit a footer, and for some reason, you don't have time to edit dozens of email templates.

3. Templates for follow-up messages

With Stripo, you can create several email templates for your campaign right away. For instance, it is crucial for event announcement emails to remind subscribers about the date and venue.

You can always use our Brand Guidelines and make the templates fit your brand's style in a few clicks to speed up the design process.

Check out the blog post below to learn how to boost your conversion rate with follow-up messages.

4. Responsive design for every email template

We know that people use smartphones most of the time, so we did our best to help you deal with it. Here's what you can do with Stripo:

  • enable or disable some elements on mobile devices;

  • inverse email elements on mobile to display it properly on small screens;

  • design two completely different versions for desktop and mobile.

5. Collaboration tools for your email marketing team

It usually takes a few people to create an email, so we added the ability to set different roles with various access levels to users within your projects on our email design platform.

Another important thing is that you can review the version history and restore any previous version if needed.

Wrapping up

Effective promotional emails always increase your lead generation efforts, sales, and revenue. However, it's not always easy to develop an effective and attractive message.

We hope that our promotional email templates will help you empower your next campaign and impress your subscribers.
