Business Email Best Practices

Getting the right business email database is obviously a critical component when connecting with the right audience and boosting sales for your business. However, the management of your company emails list is nearly as important. So let's dive into some business email best practices.

1. Make a positive first impression

As with any other interactions in life, first impressions are important. So make it a good one! After all, according to a GetResponse study, the average open rate for welcome emails is 82%. A great first impression can be accomplished by personalizing emails using your subscriber's first name, providing an introduction on your products or services, offering a welcome gift or discount, prompting them to follow your social media accounts (provide links!), and asking them to make sure your email address doesn't find its way into their spam folders. All of these actions can better acclimate your customers or prospects with your brand and encourage them to open and engage with your future emails.

2. Allow your audience to manage their own subscriptions

One sure-fire way to turn off an audience? Send too many emails. It's a fact--email users do not want to be spammed with an overabundance of emails. So, how often should you send your emails? It all depends on your business and what it offers or sells. Some companies email daily (some even multiple times a day!), others space them out on a weekly basis. You may need to just try a cadence and see what works, then adjust from there. But there is a way you can be proactive about how often you're sending emails--subscription preferences.

Subscription preferences are ideal when subscribers:

  • Want fewer emails
  • Get a new email address
  • Aren't sure which type of emails they subscribed to
  • Prefer not to receive emails on certain topics

3. Make your inactive subscribers active again

Subscribers who don't click on links or even open your emails are considered inactive or disengaged. No one likes being ignored, so the solution is to get subscribers engaged with your emails again! How?

  • Catch their attention with something beneficial for them--a coupon or a contest or a discount!
  • Remember when we were discussing first impressions? Nothing makes a better first impression than a catchy, intriguing subject line! It's the first thing subscribers see in their inbox and your chance to get a quick click. If you're not getting the open rates you were hoping for, perhaps it's time to rethink subject line strategy.
  • Give your subscribers a heads up that you're going to unsubscribe them if they don't respond within X amount of time. Yes, you'll lose some subscribers who don't care that they're being unsubscribed--but, really, they're just helping you out because you'd be scrubbing them from your list anyway.
  • Make your campaigns personal by customizing emails to segments of your business email address listings. By speaking specifically to certain groups within your list of company email addresses, you're more likely to re-engage your subscribers.
