4. E-mail Personalization:
Remember my philosophy of fashion, “YOU DON’T DEAL WITH CLOTHES, YOU DEAL WITH IDENTITY” yes, you should never forget that in the fashion business, every piece of cloths tells a story, maybe it is about the person who is wearing it or it is about the person who is designing it, and stories are part of identity and people love when their identity got recognized. Hence, always remember that name is identity, your users will love when you call them by their name and a salutation before it
5. Modern Salutation in E-mail:
Hi, Hello, Dear. STOP this right now, all these types of email salutations are outdated and irritating. Try some new ways to present your brand, remember you need to give your brand a spirit and voice. Hence, try our way;
- Hey Buddy,
- Hi Bro,
- Hey Pal,
- Hi Mate,
- Hey User,
6. Repeat & Retention E-mail Campaign:
Do not just go live and forget about the user, yes every user is important because it gives a brief of your last campaign. I have seen that maximum times people live campaign with new data every month or every week, believe me, such an act will not bring any healthy traffic to your store and not even single-digit conversion but in the end, your domain and IP address will get blacklisted on the internet. Follow the below tips;
- Use a small amount of data in the beginning, if you have 10k data then kindly select 10% and increase your data consumption after every 10 to 15 days.
- With the first 1k data, check and try to understand the number of open, click, and not open yet.
- Create three separate lists in the e-mail software and add accordingly from open, click, and not open yet, and start the retention campaign because open data needs click, click data needs conversion and not open yet required more healthy subject lines and contents to get the attention.
- Keep this circulation on and active, these three points are the main part of an e-mail campaign in fashion, neglecting anyone can become a huge loss for you.
7. Data Creates Data:
Remember that, if you are working with a new e-mail list then make sure that your Google tags and cookies and pixels tracking codes are active because these tracking systems will help you in developing re-marketing and retargeting list. This will help you in the digital marketing campaign for your fashion brand, like showing ads to customers without visiting your store or opening e-mail like the below images;
8. Compliance Matter:
Remember do not attempt e-mail marketing in hurry, it can become negative for your online store and brand. If you are planning to become a brand and already invested boom in your online business then make your follow all digital guidelines and laws like:
- Keep checking your domain & IP reputation online
- Check spam score from google postmaster postmaster.google.com
