These rates fall right in line with what I see inside my newsletter emails.
But if you don’t see great click-through rates for your email, there are several reasons why your email rates may be falling.
You might think that people are only checking Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok — but in reality, email use is higher than ever.
According to Optinmonster, 99% of consumers check their email every single day.
A solid email open rate is one of the first indications of success when sending an email marketing campaign or newsletter. It shows that your subscribers are engaging and paying attention to your content.
Whether you are using email to distribute content, nurture leads with newsletters, drive conversion or increase customer loyalty, these four tips will help increase your open rate.
Your subject line should promise your subscriber something they want and make them so curious they have to click.
While many don’t put much thought into this step, it’s very critical whether a subscriber will click open your email or not. They can’t consume your excellent email content unless they OPEN your email first.
So make people so curious they can’t not click it open.
You could do this by asking a curiosity-inducing question, start an unfinished story, violate their expectations, or imply you have information they don’t.
It’s a fact that your open rates can decline over time if you aren’t refreshing your list with new contacts. You are negatively impacting your open rate if you aren’t implementing a lead magnet strategy to increase your list count.
On the other hand, maybe your list could use a clean-up?
By removing nonengaged subscribers from your list who haven’t opened your email in the last 12 months, you can increase your overall deliverability rate.
Inboxes look to see how engaged your subscribers are, and a considerable amount of inactivity can be a red flag and hurt your deliverability rate.
Perhaps you are sending too many emails or not enough. While there is no perfect answer to how many emails you should send every month, you should know what your audience expects.
The best way is to test sending emails once, twice, and then four times a month to see how your frequency affects your open rate.
For a consumer to open your email, they need to trust and enjoy emails from you. But know, it may take time to increase your open rate as you build your reputation as a reliable sender over time.
But the quickest way to build trust with your readers is by sending them elevated content that they love and is exactly what they need.
Refer to your brand strategy and the needs of your niche audience to make sure your content is aligned with your audience.
So to recap, the four tips to help increase your email open rate are:
1 – Write a great email subject line and preheader
2 – Make sure your list is constantly growing with new leads
3 – Test the frequency of your emails
4 – Your content is valuable to your niche audience
