5 Secrets to Engaging Email Copy

emailEmails should convince readers to take some sort of action, whether it is to sign up for a special offer or respond with specific information.

The purpose of your email is its Call to Action (CTA), and it should be clearly stated as unambiguously as possible within the body of your email. 

Keep It Brief

shrot but sweetMost people find emails to be an inconvenient yet necessary part of interacting with other people online. So they don’t have a lot of patience for emails that are long on content but short on substance.

To connect better with your customers, make sure they get to the point quickly, use brief sentences or bullet points whenever possible, and clearly state your CTA so that your readers understand your intention as quickly and clearly as possible.

Every Word Matters

words have powerGiven the short attention span and impatience of email readers, you have only a few moments to get the point of your email across. That means ever word has to count.

Good persuasive writing understands what motivates the reader. As you compose your email, consider what your readers want when they are reading it. Convince them that their best interests are at the heart of the email. 

Call to Action

It’s best to give your readers a motivation to follow your CTA by always explaining exactly what’s in it for them. 

Proving High-Value Content

When people read your email, they are giving you both their time and attention. Respect the value of each. Make it worth their while by providing high-value content that includes information they will actually find useful.

Remember, you don’t always need to be promoting or selling products or idea in your emails. Your readers will be more likely to open your future emails if you give them something of value, such as how to do something or important facts and information they can use.

Sharing a personal story is a great way to do this. People love stories and are more likely to read to the end of your email if there is some personal lesson to express or point to be made.

You also can add to the value of your emails by including details about your personal life, your family, your career, education and other experiences. That way, readers will genuinely care about what you have to say.
