Did you know?
Lead nurturing emails get four to ten times the response rate compared to standalone email blasts!
Why is that, you ask? Because a reader in a trigger-based, targeted, nurturing marketing campaign is more likely to be interested in and respond to a brand’s message.
Strike while the iron’s hot
Also known as drip campaigns, lead nurturing email marketing urges your audience to get to know your brand over time with the right messages for their needs at the right time.
A successful nurturing campaign starts by targeting low-to-relatively-uninterested readers and transforms them into inquisitive and highly qualified sales leads. The goal of the campaign is to determine and segment interested readers and motivate them to take an action no matter where they lie on their customer journey.
In a recent study done by Jupiter Research, segmenting your audience and guiding them toward a relevant message can strengthen the effectiveness of your email campaigns. Automated drip campaigns that segment your audience and use adaptive messaging have proven to be a powerful component to brand strategy. In fact, according to the same source, relevant emails drive 18 times more revenue and a 5% greater click-through rate than standard broadcast emails.
