what is it and how to create an email marketing strategy?

An email marketing strategy is the approach, tactics and actions that are implemented to achieve pre-established objectives through email. 

Of course, you can perform a mass email marketing action without further ado, but if this is not based on a strategy, it is very likely that you will get a very low open rate and that your action will not achieve relevant results.

The contacts in your database have agreed to receive your emails because they expect some kind of valuable information from you, and to tailor this information you first need to know and segment your audience. This way you will carry out personalized campaigns that will interest them enough to open your email and perform the action you propose in it.

Therefore, for the email marketing strategy to make sense and be effective, the following steps must be followed:

Study of the situation

It doesn't matter if it's your first email marketing campaign or your fifth. Analyzing the initial or current situation is vital to avoid repeating ineffective actions or making mistakes. Knowing how to identify our opportunities is essential for setting SMART objectives SMART

Likewise, reviewing the actions followed by your competitors is another decisive point to know how to start and where to approach our leads.

Audience segmentation and contact list

As we said, to achieve a solid email marketing strategy, it is essential to segment your target audience. In this way, you will be able to understand the end user, their tastes, needs and demands. 

Compiling information and implementing it in your database will be as important as the emails you send.  

Customized content

If you do a good job of analysis and research, customizing content should not be too difficult. 

Maximum email personalization is one of the most effective and beneficial methods. Therefore, one of the main objectives of any email marketing strategy is to offer individualized and high-value content to your contacts. 

This is a vital point where you can develop an emotional connection with your contacts and build trust through effective communication.

Choosing the right CRM platform

The platform you use to manage your contacts must adapt to your needs in terms of design, organization and information management. Some email marketing software is not powerful enough to handle so much data. 

Managing and controlling all your email actions through a single email marketing tool will help you optimize and focus your efforts on the quality and effectiveness of your campaigns.
