10 THINGS TO LOOK FOR IN EMAIL MARKETING IN 2014

Email will not be the same as you have been looking at it till now. With the changing technology & the changing behavior, we will see lot of new things coming up in 2014.

1. Segment of One
Segment of One
The email marketing in 2014 will be heavily driven by the individualization we can bring in to the content. The individualization will not be limited to the static demographic data. It will be a much more complex system which will derive data from demographics, transactions, web behavior, etc. The old rule used for segmentation will go away. The new era has begun, where no one is alike & everyone will fall is completely different segment.

2. Personalisation
Personalization
The content needs to be personalized to everyone based on not only the demographics, behavior, etc. but also the data which is not available while sending an email, viz. location where email was opened, time when email is opened, device used to open an email, etc. Gathering live data & personalization based on this live data will be very important. As people will be travelling more than today & will have more than single device.

3. Creativity – Images, Music, Video & More

Creativity


We email clients like Gmail caching the content, there is now no limitation on the creativity used in the content. Initially Marketers used to send low quality creative so that they load faster. Now with caching, high quality creative can also be loaded in a fraction of a second. In addition, creativity will not be limited to the images. Much more involving content like music, videos, etc. will play a very important role in email marketing.

4. Live Social Angle to Email Marketing

Social feed


Email we no longer be a boring static medium of communication. It will now be possible to see live feeds from Facebook, Twitter, etc. You can see which of your friends opened or clicked on the emails. You can also share the emails with your friends on social networks. This will also open up a new angle to email marketing which will be more fun to interact with.

5. Advanced Analytics

Advanced Analytics


Email has this awesome property to be personalized based on who is seeing it. This allows us send unique content to their inbox. More we can analyse the data, better we can understand the behavior & hence we can communicate with people in much better way. With so much of data being generated every day, analytics will play an important role in email marketing.

6. Predictive Email Marketing

Predictive Email Marketing


Gone are the days of email broadcasting. Today you have to predict what your clients want. And prediction will not be done at the group level, but at the individual level. We will see lot of tools coming up who will predict what a person is going to buy, even before that person knows it. This will really help email marketing to be more relevant.

7. Multi-channel Marketing

Multi-channel Marketing


Email marketing will be used in conjunction with many other channels in 2014. A single tool which will support many channels of marketing will be very important. The data from various channels will be used to support email marketing & vice versa.

8. Single View of Customer

Single view of customer

With so many ways to interact with the brand, having a single view of every customer will be very important. This will help marketers to understand what their customers do at various other places & take quick decisions to keep them happy.

9. Data Enhancement

Profile Enhancement


Most of the companies take only email ids to make the checkout process faster. This creates a lot of problem when we have to communicate with them. Lot of tools will come out which will help marketers understand their customers much more than what data they have. Marketers will try to find out about their customers from other data sources.

10. Responsive Design

Responsive Design


Emails will be read on Mobile devices, more than the desktop. Additionally it will be opened on any size of mobile & in any mobile client. So the email sent has to be intelligent enough to be responsive & readable on mobile.

All this will make email marketing much more interesting & relevant for the Marketers & even the recipients.

Catapult customer engagement this Holi

Nothing says “It’s Spring!” like Holi. The ancient festival not only celebrates the beginning of a new season (while it farewells winter), but Holi also suggests that its time to enjoy spring’s abundant colors. The tradition represents something even deeper; it bridges social gaps, celebrates the triumph of good over bad, and most importantly renews relationships!

While the populace gears up for this exhilarating festival, you the marketer, can work on replenishing your engagement with your customers. Using the spirit of the festival, you can:

•         Show your appreciation for loyal customers and may be offer them some rewards in form of redeemable coupons, gift vouchers etc. (and boost your festive sales!)

•         Kick start engagement with new customers with the right tone and bring vivid colors

•         Ask the active non buying lot to figure out what might persuade them to start buying from you

•         Work on activating dormant customers

•         Don’t wait for customers to come to you for complaints or appreciation, go ahead and ask them! Even better send out a customer satisfaction survey mailer and gauge the feedback!

Furthermore, you can add a lot of relevant personalization to your communication. For instance, if you know the city / region of your customers, you can target them with region specific Holi offers or greetings (the rituals and celebrations vary from state to state!).  You can encourage your customers to play safe and environment friendly Holi and get bonus points for caring for the environment, in addition to improving customer engagement.

Whatever industry you represent, or type of customers you cater to (B2B or B2C), this is the time to reinforce existing relationships or re bond broken ones.

Though, before you can start thinking about improving engagement, you must identify who your customers are (as individuals), what is the level of their actual engagement with you, and how they prefer engaging with you. The second step is to target them appropriately with the right message via the right channel.

Get in touch to discover how you can identify and target: loyal, active, non-active, and other complex customer segments based on multi channel customer data (purchase history, web behaviour, email behaviour, demographics etc); without having to hire data scientists or loosing your sanity.

Make this Holi festival count!
