Body’s Content

Email body content should be informative, brief, and enticing. For creating an effective body content, you have to know the answer to the following questions:

  • What do I want to communicate?
  • How can I make it interesting?
  • What should I do to convince subscribers?
  • How to make it to the point?

Once you have clear answers to the above-mentioned questions, your email body content becomes automatically interesting. Use pointers and short paragraphs instead of long paragraphs as they seem boring. If you want to captivate a reader’s attention, then you have to think like one. Optimized Body content is the ultimate key of lead generation.

Personalize Email

A Human Being thrives for human touch. Instead of sending automated emails, send personalized emails. You can include:

Image

If you want to keep your subscriber’s concentration intact, then use images. Visual Content attracts more attraction than text content. You can use images to tell about your offer or purpose. Make sure to use relevant images because a non-descriptive image is like a “Holes filled with Mud in Rain”. An image should be

What if your content is so compelling that your subscribers want to share it with others. They want to share it on their WhatsApp or Instagram stories, but is it good to share a screenshot of their emails that doesn’t take new viewers on your website? You should include links of things you want to get shared in your emails. It is good that your existing subscribers know about your latest offer, but will it harm if new potential users know about it too.
