Top Email Marketing Mistakes Entrepreneurs Make

  1. Relying too much on discounts – Only offering frequent discounts to your email audience can train your customers to only buy when a sale is available. While discounts can be useful, don’t make them the sole focus of your email marketing strategy.
  2. Not determining the right email frequency – It’s essential to strike a balance between too many and too few emails. Aim to send at least one email per week to maintain customer engagement and familiarity.
  3. Not segmenting the email list – As your list grows, segmenting it based on engagement, past purchases, and other factors can help you send more targeted and relevant emails.

How to Create Engaging Emails

Understand Your Customer Avatar

To create engaging email content, it’s crucial to understand your target audience. Research their pain points, aspirations, challenges, and goals. Use this information to improve the content of your emails so that they add value to the recipients.

Develop Your Brand Voice

When crafting emails, make sure to infuse them with your brand’s unique voice. Confidence in your product or service will shine through the copy and create a more engaging experience for the reader.

Personalize Your Emails

Use segmentation to make your emails feel more personal and tailored to the individual recipient. This can also involve occasional surveys or polls to get a better understanding of your subscribers.

Create Valuable Content

Share content that is relevant and valuable to your audience. Offer tips, insights, or information that can help your customers and provide a natural segue into promoting your products or services.

Maintaining Email Deliverability and Reputation

With email algorithms becoming more sophisticated, maintaining good deliverability and reputation is crucial. Consistently sending emails that provide value and engaging content means that recipients will open them and click on links, which can help preserve your domain reputation and ensure your emails land in the right inbox.

Email Marketing in the Service Industry

Email marketing is especially effective in the service industry, where sales cycles can be longer. Regular emails help maintain relationships and increase the chance of winning customers if they’re in the market for the service at a later date

Preferred Email Marketing Systems

When selecting an email marketing system, consider the following recommended options:


  • Perfect for e-commerce businesses

  • Offers excellent automation and segmentation features


  • Works well for any type of business, including the service and content marketing industries
  • Provides exceptional automation and segmentation features

Before selecting a platform, make sure it caters to your specific business requirements and the technology you’re currently using. This helps ensure a seamless integration with minimal complications. Ultimately, the best email system is the one you will use and grow with.
