Improving engagement for drip emails
Based on insights from Matt Sornson of Clearbit. Lightly edited with permission.
Personalizing your marketing emails increases conversion. But doing so at scale takes a lot of effort. Here’s how to get around that:
- Run lead generation ads to your blog posts and to other long-form content on your site. Then tag users based on the posts they’ve read. Plus, prompt them to fill out useful quizzes. Store their quiz answers.
- Push their engagement data into an automated emailing platform like Customer.io. And enrich their contact details with Clearbit to discover their job title and the industry they work in.
- Now you can send automated yet personalized drip emails based on a person’s role, company, and interests. This results in higher conversion rates. Show recipients you know who they are and what they care about, and you’ll seem a whole lot less like spam.
