Is your email marketing strategy effective enough?

Though various social networking platforms have emerged today through which you can expand your business, the classic email marketing continues to be one of the best means to reach out to your audience. It helps you remain connected with your prospective clients on a regular basis. Unless you are spamming the recipient’s inbox, email marketing can actually provide one of the best ROI and help fuel your brand’s marketing campaign.

But how do you measure the effectiveness of your email marketing campaign? Here are some of the aspects which you can analyze the data received after sending out your emails:-

Delivery rate

This is the first step to building your email marketing strategy. Delivery rate is essentially the number of emails which have been successfully delivered to your recipient list in percentage terms of the total emails sent out. It should ideally be around 95%. Even the emails which go to the spam folder are considered to be delivered.

Open Rates

Post your mail has been delivered it is important that the recipient actually opens and reads it. To maximize your open rates you should focus on having an attractive subject line. This is very important as this is what majorly determines your strategy ahead. The above metric is a strong indicator of how successful your campaign is. As per a recent study, open rates (worldwide) are usually in the 25% bracket. Even if your statistics fall below this line, it does not indicate that your campaign is failing. It is challenging task to get your subscribers, even those who are genuinely interested in your brand, to open your mail.

Click-through rates

Click through rate is another important metric which marketers heavily rely on. When a mail has been opened, it may contain various links, to say the website, blog posts or products for sale. Click through rates determine how many people among those who have opened the mail actually click on these links. Most marketers strive to achieve a high click-through rate but are important to remember that not everyone who opens your mail will voluntarily redirect to those links. It will probably be a very low fraction of people who would actually take action, based on your mail.

Unsubscribe rate

First of all, it is important that you have a convenient option for recipients to unsubscribe to your emails. People should not be forced into reading your emails if they are not interested. Moreover, they can later flag it as spam, which could be worse for your business. Now, this unsubscribe button can have many stories to tell. A user would unsubscribe if the expectations he had initially are not being met. Unsubscription rates are around 0.22 percent globally. Though it is common for the audience to unsubscribe, they should not be a very large number. This may indicate that your email content is not up to the mark and you need to redesign some aspects of your strategy.


These are some parameters which you, as an email marketer should inspect. If all this seems too overwhelming to you, you could go to a third party email marketing specialist. Email marketing is not a lost art, as many believe it to be. If done properly, it can yield results which will help your company acquire more leads.

Cheat Sheet to Create Effective Blog Content

If you are a small scale business venture or a startup in 2017 looking to make it big, you should definitely focus on writing quality content. Though paid promotions on Facebook, Twitter or Youtube have become a popular, viable option for startups, creating effective blog posts can also increase ROI, in the long run.

Having a blog for your website can actually be very effective for your business.

  • It increases the visibility of your website by directing traffic towards it.
  • Customers can connect with you through your blog, which strengthens their ties with your venture.
  • It helps you rank higher in SERPs if you have fresh, SEO optimized quality content.
  • It helps build good brand image and shows that you have sound knowledge of what you are doing.

Having a blog can prove to be effective for your business, only if you ensure that quality content is being published. Usually, startups focus most their resources on advertising across social media channels and devote very little time and effort to creating quality blog posts. The content needs to be exciting, engrossing and something which keeps the reader waiting for the next post. If you are maintaining a blog, or writing guest blog posts, and would like to increase the readership, consider the following tips below.

  • Write relevant content: If you are maintaining a blog for your business venture, it is important to write content relevant to your product. Remember, your blog is a means to increase consumer base for your company, and convert them to leads. Hence you should focus on topics which would target the right audience for your venture.
  • Do not use excessive flowery language: Unless you are writing for a literary venture do not use excessively elaborate language. Keep your sentences short and crisp. Remember that you are curating content for your company, not for a novel. Use simpler phrases, simple vocabulary and do away with all the ‘intricate stuff’.


  • No single piece of long text: Break up your content into smaller sections. Use bullets, points, headings and subheadings to retain the attention of the reader. Nobody has the time to go through long paragraphs of text. People need instant information, presented in a systematic manner.
  • Come up with a catchy title: Spend some time thinking about the title. Experiment with two or more titles to see which brings in more readership. Titles are what will make the reader open up your link. Make sure they are not very generic or too long.
  • Keywords are the key: You will have to learn the basics of SEO and keywords if you are serious about writing blogs. Even before you start off with an article, you need to think of the keywords you would choose. This is what Google uses to analyze what is being discussed in your post. There are numerous tools online which would help you with keyword research like SEMRush, Ubersuggest, Google Adwords etc.


  • Write longer articles with quality content: Longer articles rank higher as per BuzzSumo analyses. Usually, articles around 1500- 2000 words seem to do fairly better than smaller articles. However, you must ensure that the 2000 word long write-up is well worth the read. It should be in your subject domain and should stand about among the many articles of the similar kind up on the world wide web.

These are some important things to consider before starting out to write a blog. Of course, you can get your blogs done by a third party franchise, which specializes in this. However, do remember to pay well. Many freelancers who to do blogs are paid a meagre amount, which reflects in their work.

Get started with advertising on Pinterest

Before you start advertising on Pinterest, keep in mind certain principles which will go a long way in deciding your success and growth.

When you advertise on Pinterest, remember to:

  • Be authentic
    Promote content that expresses who you really are and what you actually offer.
  • Create ads that make you proud 
    Your ads should be some of the best stuff people see on Pinterest.
  • Don’t promote spam or other bad stuff 
    People should be safe from that on Pinterest.
  • Obey applicable laws and regulations 
    Keep it legal and get started with advertising on Pinterest 🙂

Pinterest advertisements are known as Promoted Pins. They are similar to the regular Pins, except that you are charged to promote and publicize them among a bigger audience. Pinterest has three chief kinds of campaigns:

  • Awareness campaigns aim to get your Pins in front of new people who don’t know about your business yet or aren’t interacting with your brand yet.
  • Engagement campaigns seek to encourage Pinterest users to engage with your content by repining or clicking on your Promoted Pins.
  • Traffic campaigns direct visitors or potential clients from your Promoted Pins directly to your website link.

Targeted Audience

Pinterest has methods which help you select your audience in a variety of ways:

  • Interest targeting allows you to target users based on over 400 different interests some of which range from street style, sustainable architecture, clean environment and more.
  • Keyword targeting targets users based on keywords they type in the search box.
  • Business data targeting lets you target existing customers, users who have previously visited your website or a “mirror image” group of people who look and act similar to your existing audience.

There are also options to target users by area, location, language, types of device used, gender and more.


How much you have to pay and how will you be charged will depend on the type of campaigns you want to run. Awareness campaigns are charged by CPM, engagement campaigns by engagement, and traffic campaigns by click.

Pinterest employs a “second-price auction model” for bids on ads. This means you can set a maximum bid that you are willing to pay, but you will only be charged the amount needed to over-take the next-highest bidder. You could be charged as per your maximum bid, but you can also pay less according to the situation.

Before you can create an ad on Pinterest, you are required to set up a Pinterest business account. And since you can only publicize Pins you’ve already posted before, you actually have to post the Pin you want to promote before you start the process of buying your ad.

Action 1: Set your goal

From your Pinterest profile, click on the + button and select Create ad—or just go straight to Select what type of campaign you want to create: awareness, engagement, or traffic, then name your campaign, select the start and (optional) end dates, and set your daily budget.

Action 2: Decide on your Promoted Pin

  2. Any person can write something about you in the virtual world anonymously, irrespective of whether it’s the truth or not. Anyone who is upset with you- an ex, a fired employee, someone you got a bonus over can virtually go anywhere and write negative comments about you. It happens a lot of times and there are a few rules and regulations to guard people against these circumstances.
  3. Each and everything we do is documented online eternally, because of which we need more methods to ensure this doesn’t hurt us. We post excessively online and we now have the means to record and stockpile all that activity. That means everything we upload on social networking sites and everything we look up, websites we visit, online transactions we make and communication we have through email or chat is present somewhere. A Facebook post you wrote years ago may get you fired. Even scarier is, a private image or text you sent to a friend even after being deleted could come back and haunt you. There are hackers who assault the privacy of everyone from public figures on Instagram or Snapchat to politicians contesting elections. But, it isn’t just hackers you need to scared of. Obsolete laws that haven’t developed with technology can make it simpler for people to get the information you thought was confidential or deleted.
  4. Having good results online helps you, but the majority of the people are unaware of this fact. In an ever growing aggressive economy, more and more companies, people and clients are searching for affirmative information regarding you online. However, most people are unaware what they can do to enhance the encouraging results online and build a positive online reputation.

In the era of cyber-bullying, vengeance, hatred sites and insufficient online privacy regulations, people need the control to comprehend and shield their reputation online.
