With you for the first time or you’re, running Advertisements through them, They don’t really know you that well yet, And so an autoresponder series is a series that you could Walk people from their journey from when they first come. Into contact with you to getting them excited to Take the next step with you, whether that’s buying an Affiliate product from you buying one of your own products or just setting them up for Something in the future, but helping them get some Quick wins in the process.

I was under-utilizing This’Cause, I was just focused on growing it and I would just blow through and maybe like write one followup In an autoresponder Series you should have for real legit. You Should shoot to aim from 10 to 20 email, followups That you’re literally walking people through a process You’re getting them to get to know you You’re entertaining them at the same time and you’re educatin’ them in a really really rock solid way.

Write this down a really rock solid way to build that relationship. To nurture them to get people to become A raving fan of yours, or at least to keep them comin’ back to opening up your emails, is to actually help them get a specific Result that they want a desired result that they want Help them get a quick win.

So you’re opening loops. That’s how our human brain works.

If you open a loop, we have a strong desire to close that loop. That’s why a lot of soap operas shows they always leave on a cliffhanger and they keep people waitin’ around’til, the commercial’s Over to keep comin’ back Or at the end of it, they always Leave it at the cliffhanger, That’s exactly what you’re Tryin’ to go for here in your subject line All right: cool man, you’re helpin’ people, gettin’ quick, wins as soon As they join your list and your email, followups and you’re, also creating Engaging subject lines that gets people to actually open up the email in the first place.

5 Email Marketing Examples

I’ve already made a article, a couple articles about what email marketing is and I’ll put those at the end as a reference. If you’d like to look at them, if you’re not sure – and I’ve also have a free course that you can hit below on how to set up your email marketing automated system now, what I’m going to do right now is review. What email marketing is very quickly before I give you five examples.

Basically, email marketing is a system, that’s automated. This is where passive income can happen and that’s what most people are looking for when they’re looking for online business, not everybody is looking for that, but this part of your business would definitely be passive income once you set it up, it keeps working when you’re doing Something else and that for me, that’s what I’m looking for now.

What is email marketing email marketing is, when you use your platform, your social media platform that you’ve decided to build up, whether it be YouTube or Instagram LinkedIn. Instead, Instagram didn’t I Facebook, okay, Twitter, all those different social media platforms. What you’re doing is you’re offering people on those platforms, something for free or maybe you’re running ads, and you said: hey I’ve got this small cookie book that I made of recipes that will help you lose weight.

If you follow these recipes for one week or thirty days, whatever it is, you could lose ten pounds and most people are going to say: hey she’s got all the recipes written out, I’m going to go ahead and and give her my email address. For that I mean that’s a no-brainer, it’s free, and what do I get out of it? I could lose ten pounds and I’m looking to lose 10 pounds see how that works. It has to be something that’s going to solve a problem for people and that they want to give you that email address.

Now. What do you do with the email address? Big whoop right, I got an email address. I didn’t sell anything. What does it do? You then set up an automated sequence of emails where you introduce yourself, you start warming up to people, get them to know like and trust you and then you can link some little sales things in there. So you might, you know, get that. Give them that ebook with the recipes and then you can keep talking about you know, introduce yourself and then start talking about other recipes that could be helpful or different nutritional foods that you want them to keep eating, and then you might say hey.

This is a shape that I use. That has been very helpful. I get all my nutrition and boom there you go. You try to sell that shake as you’re talking about the same content. So that’s how email marketing works. Let’s turn that off. Okay – sorry about that. Anyway, and then you have it all automated, I have a free course below where I show you how to set that up, but sometimes you want to do what they call a campaign you might might want to come in and use different styles and things of emails.

That’s what I’m going to show you today different things that you can do you don’t want to just keep blah blah blah doing the same thing you want to start putting in some different styles of emails. Now, why do we use email marketing? It’s proven that email marketing helps to improve, increase, subscriber engagement. Now, why do you want that engagement again, people buy from you after they get to know you like you and trust you and they might have to have seven or eight what I call touches or contacts from you before they’ll, even start to feel that way.

Think of yourself, I know a lot of people compared email marketing to dating when you date someone you don’t right away on that. First date fall madly in love. Maybe some people do they think they do, but in general most people need seven or eight different contacts. You need to go out with them and get to know them, and it takes a few days it takes. It may be a month. It takes some people longer than that, but the more you are in contact with someone, the more you either like them or you don’t right.

It’s a friendship works. The same way hey I like that person. I want to spend more time with them and that’s how email marketing is so. It really is a wonderful way to build relationships and get people to know you like you and trust you and then they’ll buy from you now here’s example number one. I call it after the free thing, so let’s say you gave them something for free. Maybe you gave them some workout exercises to do totally free.

Maybe you made a PDF with 30 different yoga exercises or weightlifting whatever you’re into okay, but now you’re going to say to them. Hmm see that maybe you’re starting to hurt – maybe you weren’t in in shape, so doesn’t feel too good. Does it? Are you experiencing sore muscles because you’ve been out of shape and yeah? Of course they probably are, and so then you can offer them a foam roller which adds to helping them still exercise, but the foam roller will have different, stretching exercises and things they can do and they can buy that foam roller from you.

That’s just an example. Now this person probably happens to sell all kinds of exercise equipment, but maybe you’re in the exercise or healthcare industry and you’re, not really selling products. You can always go to Amazon sign up as an Amazon associate and offer that foam roller to kind of complement. The business that you have, if that makes sense, and then you can make seven to nine percent off of each sale that you make so pretty cool.

So after you give somebody that free thing, what can you follow up with with something that you could maybe sell them that still helps solve a problem? Now this next one is from Rent the Runway and I couldn’t copy it because it’s kind of scrolling. So if you want to read it as I talk, but basically in this one they’re telling people don’t go, buy a dress and that’s I catching to me. What do you mean? Don’t go, buy a dress, I need a wedding dress or I need a dress to go to that wedding.

You tell me not to buy one well, this company, rents, dresses and what they’re saying is they use some of the catchy phrases? As do you want to be like the 27 dresses girl in that movie, you could rent a dress for the wedding for the rehearsal for the you know, for the bridal shower and you could rent three dresses cheaper than you could buy one. So that’s what they’re trying to sell is renting, but it’s kind of like reverse psychology, that headline because most people think oh, I have to buy and we’re in that mentality we’re not used to renting things like dresses.

So I thought this one was pretty catchy and I wanted you to see how they even had it scrolling, but that’s something you could do with your own business. Maybe say you know you don’t need to do such-and-such. You could do this and said um so kind of use some reverse psychology, especially in the healthcare industry. You know everybody thinks that they have to do heavy, lift with late weightlifting or cardiovascular exercise when you can still lose weight and still get in shape without jumping around.

If you eat right and move see what I’m saying you don’t have to jump around and do all those hard exercises, which is really why a lot of people won’t do it, they don’t want to jump around and have to do that kind of exercise. So I call that one reverse psychology tell them they don’t have to do something and then tell them what they could do instead. Now number three is share your pain. I thought this one was pretty good.

This person wrote this out again, you can stop the article and read it, I’m not going to read it to you, but share your pain on your journey on on on why you are where you’re at instead of trying to sell an item say this is where I was, and these were all the things that I did wrong to get to where I’m at today and you’re, sharing all the things you did wrong and somebody reading it might say. Well, what did you do right and that’s kind of where the catchy tagline is at the bottom after they hear about everything you did wrong, maybe in the next email the third email could be.

You know this is what I did to solve the problem. So the person that wrote this probably has a good 3 to 5 email sequences that they can write to finally get you where what is it that you did that worked because this person keeps sharing. I think it’s Paul Paul’s story. I know Daniel okay, so Daniel is it’s making them want more right at the end and he’s going to keep pulling you and hooking you along until you finally found out what did Paul Daniel do to finally solve his problem.

So that’s a kind of a short sequence of emails within your bigger sequence, or you could run it that way as a campaign now number four is using an email that requires a double opt-in. Here’s just an example from Chipotle. Of course yours would be different, but a lot of people there’s a lot of mixed messages on this I hear some people say: don’t do double opt-in because then you’re going to lose a huge amount of people.

Other people say they prefer double opt because then you really know that people want to be in your email list. So that’s just a decision you have to make, but the advantages of double opt-in are one. You know people really want to be there. It really cuts down on spam because those people opt it in twice to say. Yes, I want these emails and then three there are some countries in some regions of the world that require double opt-in, so you’re kind of losing those people.

If you don’t do it, but again it’s up to you if you want to do a double opt-in or a regular opt-in. It’s up to you. I would think that, as your list gets really huge, you could start doing double opt-in, because then you can afford to be picky about who comes on your list, especially if you’re new getting fifty people is exciting right and when you’re new or a 500 or when You hit that thousand, but when you start hitting 1520 thousand, I would say then double opt-ins, probably not a big deal so anyway, that’s another the fourth email and now share the fifth.

Now I found this one it again: it’s somebody that sells things, but maybe your email list isn’t about selling a product, maybe you’re into affiliate marketing or something like that, but you can still use this for any market. Show appreciation tell your customers that I really appreciate you, you know being on my newsletter and it’s been a year since I started this, and I really appreciate it know that now the person here said we’re going to donate three million pairs of of a product.

Okay, to show our appreciation and you’re like wow – that’s a lot, but how could you use it even if you’re a small company, you could have a an organization that you send ten percent of your profits to, and you could say for this particular email, everybody that Clicks through because you can see that click-through rate I’m going to donate $ 1 to this organization. That’s nonprofit, because I really appreciate you hanging in there with me and – and you know, becoming my friend blah blah blah and everybody that clicks through on this email.

I’ll donate an extra dollar, so that’s just a way of showing appreciation and then showing them that you’re the type of person that likes to give as well. So, hopefully, those five different emails will start making. You think outside the box and not just sending sequences and and kind of being the same, all the time change it up a little bit, do something different and make it a little bit more exciting.

Before you go make sure you subscribe to my blog, I would really appreciate it and don’t forget to hit the free course link below. Definitely if you haven’t started email marketing, I have strongly recommended the course is: free, there’s, no gimmick or anything and it’ll help.

Proof My Weekly Email Marketing Strategy Works

Because I create this email every single week. I did a training on this I’ll put a link below. I did a live training. I screen share my computer and showed you exactly how I do it. Why I do it and answered a bunch of questions? So if you haven’t checked that out I’ll link it below, you can also start a free trial with constant contacts below. I think they give you three months off. I think they even have like a 30 % discount right now, so you get several months for free, plus a 30 % discount and all kinds of stuff so check that out as well, because that’s the very best system that I’ve found to do the weekly email.

It’s it’s very user friendly, but when I’m calling my past clients right now, these are people who I haven’t talked to in a long time. Some of these people haven’t talked to in in several years up to 5, 6, 7 or 8 10 years. I haven’t talked to some of these these clients, these past clients, acquaintances, people that might have shown property to never bought anything stuff like that. I’r just calling everyone from my past right now, I’m taking full advantage of this situation and just trying to make the best out of it and see what I could do to help people.

That’s the name of the game. So I’m loving this moment. I am to be honest with you really excited to get back to work. I’r excited to get back into the office, I’m excited for the market to come back full force. It’s not dead, I’m still selling a few things, but I can’t wait for it to be full force. But the point is: is that as I’m calling these past clients and acquaintances they, it sounds like there’s this feeling there’s this there’s this moment in the call where we feel like we just really really know each other, and it’s because they’ve been getting this weekly email And they know what I’ve been up to.

They know how consistent I am. They know how hardworking I am all these past clients are talking to me like I’m, their long-lost child or their best friend from high school and and that Effie that I always talked about that friend or family effect that you want to give people the weekly email Is doing it for me on a large level, I’m able to scale that I’m able to scale my business like this, because I create the email I hits in and it goes out to thousands of people and I can send it out to millions of people.

If I wanted to – and it doesn’t take any more effort – so this is a scalable effort, a scalable activity, that’s so powerful and when you do it the way, I do it and you actually create it every week. Instead of trying to do a drip campaign that has generic information on it, you know what really wins – and I’ve talked about this before what really wins on social media and emails, and any kind of content that you put out is originality and your two cents.

Your opinions stories inside information, that’s what people want, not the generic market information or you know the, how to’s and all this stuff they want real, authentic original content that comes out of your brain and your mind, and – and it comes to them in the form of Digital, it shows them who you really are and who are you and you’re? Somebody who really cares about them wants the best for them.

You want to help them through whatever it is that you’re they’re going through anyway. I just wanted to share with you how much power goes behind this weekly email and that benefits you in so many different ways. It takes your past clients and keeps them connected. It takes you, know, new people and shows them how hard-working and honest you are and dependable and consistent. It does so much for you and if you, if you lose connection with someone for a decade, but they still been getting the weekly emails, they still when you talk to them.

Ten years later, it still feels like you know, you never missed a beat you. It feels like you almost talked to him last month and what I love about the email part as opposed to social media, which I feel like you need to do both. But what I really love is the fact that the organic Reach is so high with social media you’re. Looking at you know, 10 % even 1 % on some some platforms – 1 % organic reach up to 25 %, probably as high as it gets, is about 25 % organic reach.

When you look at email, you’re, probably looking at 90 % organic reach, you know you got 10 % that might go to spam folder or something like that. But you have a huge huge advantage in the organic reach Department with email. That’s why I feel like email should be the foundation of your business and then build all the social medias and all the other different things on top of your email strategy. Anyway, I’m going to get back to work.

I’r just wanted to share this with you for just a second I’m out here enjoying the it’s really nice today. It’s like 65 degrees, it’s really a beautiful day, and I’m just trying to take advantage of every little second of this opportunity and there’s always always always an opportunity. You just have to look at it the right way, so I hope you guys are taking advantage of it, and I hope that my articles and my content is really helping.

You understand what you need to be doing right now, what you should be thinking about and how to continue to thrive through this time and get ready for the rush. That’s going to happen on the other side anyway, we’ll see you guys on the next article. Let me know if there’s anything in the world, I can do for you and we’ll talk to you. Then let’s go
