Starting Engagement From Day One Will Help With E-Mail Deliverability

by Nelson Tan

E-mail marketing is a great way to grow your business and make sales. Before that can happen you need to build a relationship with your readers and earn their trust. I'm sure you've heard that readers have to know, like, and trust you before they consider spending money with you. That's why it is so important to create engaging e-mails that start a conversation between you and your target audience.

The best time to start that conversation is on day one. Not only will it help you build your business and learn more about your ideal customers, it also helps with e-mail deliverability. I don't have to tell you that spam filters catch more and more e-mails, particularly if you're marketing a product or service in them. Add to that the Gmail promotions tab, and it's a wonder anyone actually sees and reads your e-mails.

The key to much higher deliverability rates into the main inbox is to get your subscribers to hit reply and e-mail you back. This starts a conversation and it the eyes of e-mail providers makes you a much more legit and trustworthy contact. In other words, the chances of future e-mails landing in the main inbox are much higher if you can convince your readers to reply to one (or more) of your messages.

Can you take a guess what your most read e-mail message is? It's the first one you send to your readers after they sign up and confirm their subscription. This e-mail is often called the welcome e-mail and you usually than your readers for signing up and deliver your lead magnet or opt-in freebie. Because it is the most opened e-mail and the first message your readers see from you, it's the perfect place to start engaging with your readers.

If you can get them to hit reply to this e-mail, your chances of getting the rest of your messages into the person's main inbox skyrocket. Making that happen is a lot easier than you may think. All you have to do is ask your readers a question. Seriously, that's it. What you ask them depends on your market, your niche, and what you plan on e-mailing them about.

Keep it simple. Ask them to hit reply and ask a question or share a little something about themselves. Make sure it is relevant to what your e-mails and lead magnets are about. For example, if you're building a list in the weight loss niche and are teaching them about eating low carb, you could ask them if they have any experience eating this way, share their favorite low carb food, or e-mail you their biggest question or concern about this diet and lifestyle.

In addition to helping with e-mail deliverability and subscriber engagement, you'll also be pleasantly surprised how much you'll learn about your future customers in these e-mails. Pay attention to them and learn from them.
