Clients will often come to you with preconceived notions of what their subscriber base looks like. However, it takes a robust marketing program—complete with plenty of testing and data—to truly pinpoint subscriber engagement. What content interests their subscribers? Where and how are they viewing your client’s messages? Are they forwarding or printing any particular campaigns? Answering these questions ensures that your team delivers a quality data-driven campaign that truly engages your client’s subscribers, thus positioning your team as a true “full service agency” and strategic marketing partner going forward.
While your email service provider is full of great metrics like open, click, and spam rates, there’s likely a gap in subscriber engagement. What do your subscribers do after they’ve clicked through to your website? What pages are they visiting on your site? Do they spend time on a particular page, or do they bounce immediately? Are they purchasing anything? By adding tracking to your links you can answer these questions—and more—for a full picture of your email campaign success.
