This week’s tip is one that I discuss on nearly every call with
companies needing help with email, and it’s asking for a reply.
We all know there’s a list of things that will affect whether or
not you inbox, but today’s tip is something you can control
on every deployment and it’s a HUGE deal to our friends at
100% of the time, on the first and second email you send
to subscribers (warm or cold), ALWAYS ask a simple
question that will encourage them to hit “Reply” and email
Google’s algorithm and “weight” on replies is a secret, but
experts all agree that it likely plays a huge role in going to
the inbox vs hitting the promotions tab.
It’s estimated that Google controls almost half of all email
addresses in use today (US). I personally believe it’s much
higher than that.
Here’s a sample template that you can use to accomplish
the goal. This is a generic template, but you can tweak it
to your liking. I call it the “warm and fuzzy” email because
it can be welcoming to warm or cold leads.
