“But Everyone Should Get This!” (More Email Marketing Takeaways)

Posted by Kate Rosinski

February 8, 2018

How many times have you sat in a meeting, on a call, or just in a conversation and wondered… “Why me?”

(OK, that’s a little dramatic.)

How many times have you sat in a meeting, call, or conversation that seemed extremely irrelevant to what you do, know, or care about?

We’ve all been there—trapped in a meeting that starts with, “Now I know this doesn’t apply to a lot of you, but…” You might feel annoyed, slightly disrespected, or just anxious to get back to what you actually have to do. That’s part of life for a professional of any kind.

Now, what about when you receive an email that seems irrelevant? Unlike a meeting you need to attend, you can opt-out. You can delete, unsubscribe, or even report it as spam.

Who Dreams of Being an Email Marketer?

Posted by Kate Rosinski

February 1, 2018

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”

“Well… I dream of writing subject lines and emails that get people to open, click, and ultimately become sales-qualified.”

Those were my exact thoughts, stumbling the halls of Klem North Elementary in the late-90s.  

No, but I did want to be a writer. And even though it wasn’t exactly my dream, the truth is that emails are most of what I write today. As a former copywriter turned marketing consultant, I regard email writing as a craft.

If you’re in marketing or advertising, I’m willing to bet you also understand the importance of solid, purpose-driven email writing. (If you’re not in marketing, you probably at least appreciate it, or notice the difference between a good and bad email. There are a lot of examples of the latter.)

3 Email Tools That Enable Your Salespeople to Send Smarter, Faster, and Better Emails

Posted by Dani Buckley

June 26, 2017

Email is one of the most important pieces of technology that we use today. While we might even rely too much on email, it’s a necessary part of the sales process. However, if you really think about it, the way we use email hasn’t changed all that much over the years. Sure, we now have email in our pockets (via our phones) but the actual tools we use are pretty much the same.

Or so you may think…

This is where some of the leading sales enablement companies (like HubSpot Sales) come into play. They are helping make salespeople smarter, faster, and able to improve one-to-one email communication in some big ways. Let’s take a quick look at some of the tools your salespeople shouldn’t be doing business without.

Email Marketing for Businesses: How Not to Write a Follow-Up Email

Posted by Matt Sunshine

October 26, 2016

In marketing and sales, we send a lot of emails. We thank people for downloading our content, we offer additional resources, we ask them if they have any questions, we follow up with them to see how they’re doing, and we ask for their business. We know that most people are dealing with full inboxes, so we try to make our emails short, relevant, and valuable.

Of course, I’m also a buyer of things, so people send me follow-up emails asking how I liked the eBook or whitepaper I downloaded. A recent email was a perfect example of what NOT to do when sending marketing emails.
