3 Emails You Should be Sending (In Addition to Your Regular Newsletter)

Emails are five times more likely to be seen than a message on Facebook or Twitter. And they're still, after all this time, produce a better ROI than social media (and almost any other channel).

Chances are, you're already familiar with sending out a standard email newsletter. A semi-frequent round-up sent weekly (or monthly) to a general audience.

These help, but only to a point. 

If you're only sending a single weekly or month newsletter, chances are, you're leaving money on the table.

Event-triggered messages can boost results 600% according to one study from market research firm Gartner.

Adding these into your regular email marketing workflow can give you tremendous leverage with a tiny amount of effort. Because the best news is that you can automate these messages. Just create and set them up once, and then set them on autopilot.

Here are three quick examples that most companies can (and should) begin sending this week.

1. Welcome Emails

These are simple introductory emails to welcome new people and begin building trust. Typically new contacts need 7 'touches' before they start to recognize who you are. So start building familiarity as soon as possible with a 'welcome' email sent immediately to new subscribers or contacts.

2. Post-Purchase Emails

Sending emails to new customers and clients is a smart move to confirm their order and expand on what comes next.

But they're also a powerful way to continue earning trust, moving quickly to squash any potential buyers remorse before it strikes.

Following up after purchases also presents a new opportunity to capitalize on their interest to upsell, cross-sell, or encourage referrals to friends, family, and colleagues.

3. Past Customer Emails

We're all going to lose customers or clients at a certain point in time. Unfortunately, that's a given.

The good news is that you don't have to completely abandon the relationship. Instead, you can send out emails to 'win back' or recover lost customers and clients by highlighting new or different offerings.
