Are your subscribers getting your emails?
Today I’m sharing FOUR things you can do to make sure your message lands in your subscribers’ inboxes.
This simple introduction will ensure your readers “meet” you — so that when you land in their inbox a few days (or weeks) later, you’re not some stranger and they’re left wondering, “Who is this person and how did they get my email?”
So first things first, make sure you find a way to introduce yourself to new subscribers — here are some ideas:
Send content that you promised your subscribers that you would — and send it consistently.
If you fall off the wagon of emailing your list, it’s harder to get back into the swing of things… and your subscribers may forget who you are during your absence. Eek, we don’t want that!
RSS feeds are not a cop-out. If you’re too busy to craft and send an email each week, it’s a solid way to stay in your subscribers’ inboxes — so they get an email with each new blog post you publish — and you only have to set it up once!
If you’re only waiting to email your list until you’ve got something to sell them, that’s going to skyrocket your unsubscribe rate. Plus, it’s just bad for sales — what you should be doing is keeping your list warm, happy and engaged ALL the time, not just when you have something to promote.
Here are some more ideas on how to stay connected with your list consistently:
A “cold” subscriber is someone who is no longer active on your email list. They don’t open your emails, click your emails or fully engage with what you’re sending out.
Keeping cold subscribers on your email list has its downsides — like impacting your engagement data and the actual delivery of your emails. If they’re not getting opened, inboxes think you’re sending spam (oh no!)
Here’s how to fix that:
Your best defense against the spam folder is to use an email service provider with high delivery rates and standards. ConvertKit is what I use, and deliverability is only one of the many reasons I love this platform.
ConvertKit’s high deliverability rate guarantees my messages land right where they need to be — your inbox.
When more of YOUR emails get delivered, that means more opportunities for your subscribers to see your name and email IN their inbox, so they can open it and engage with you!
