Intelligent segmentation

The importance of knowing where your audience is in the buying cycle can’t be overstated. The power of email marketing lies in its ability to provide relevant, timely information that turns prospects into buyers, so it is vital to properly segment your database and reach the right people at the right time with the right message. 

Sending out the wrong message at the wrong time will at best see your marketing efforts ignored, and at worst will result in prospects unsubscribing from future alerts. Despite this, only 21% of marketers are using any sort of advanced segmentation, with less than half looking to implement segmentation in the future.

Emails for mobile

It’s vital to get it right when it comes to mobile-friendly eshots, too. Ninety-one per cent of consumers check their emails at least once a day, making it the most-used functionality. And with an average of nine minutes a day spent checking our emails on our phones, and almost half of all email ‘opens’ taking place on a mobile device, it’s clear that this is an area that cannot be ignored.

Despite the vast numbers of consumers opening emails on smartphones, however, they only account for 25% of conversions compared to 39% for desktop. This indicates that brands are not concentrating enough on ensuring their email campaigns are better optimised for mobile devices while keeping consistent with other marketing initiatives from the same brand – something an integrated campaign would help deliver.

How can Theme help?

Whether you need us to design a series of engaging eshots for your teams to use in future email campaigns, or take over the full running of your CRM – including segmenting audiences, creating automated email buyer journeys and crafting all the required emails – we can handle it.

Thought for the day

Certain UX issues can only be seen in the real-world, so set aside time for testing ‘in the wild’.

— Nick Capehorn, Digital Director
Is email still effective post-GDPR?

Absolutely. Email still returns a great ROI when done correctly – and in fact may be even more impactful now you know you’re only sending email to people who are engaged with your message.

Can Theme Digital handle my email lists?

Yes, we can act as a data controller for your email lists, segmenting your audiences, cleansing the database when necessary and ensuring the right message is reaching the right people.

Do I need an account with an email service provider?

Not at all. It helps if you already have an account with someone like MailChimp or Campaign Monitor, but we can easily set you up with one if necessary.

How do you design and build the emails?

It depends on the complexity. In many instances, emails can be built in a drag-and-drop system like MailChimp or Campaign Monitor. We’re happy to work with the email builder of your choice.

However, you may wish an email with a bit more flair – maybe with some fancy features – and it that instance we call on the expertise of our friends at Wax Media.

These dedicated email developers (and there really aren’t many out there who can say that) know all there is to know about building emails that work perfectly every time, and we wouldn’t entrust our design and hard-work to anyone else.

And for a perfect blend of both worlds, consider MailCMS, Wax Media’s own drag-and-drop system that goes far beyond your off-the-shelf email builders. For businesses that send out a lot of email and want to be at the cutting edge of what’s possible, it’s the only way to go!
