CrowdConnect Email Marketing Who Clicks Matters

Email Marketing: Who Clicks Matters

Who clicks matters.

Your email subscriber data can help you understand your patrons, their interest in your events, the content that they care about and more.

Planning to market your next event?

Consider looking back at your previous emails with an Event Report.

An Event Report can help you identify which of your contacts have taken specific actions such as opening your email, clicking on individual links, and even unsubscribing.   Plus, an Event Report can be run for specific email campaigns or for a given date range.

Once you know who is engaging, you can improve targeting for future marketing efforts.

Who matters?

The ones who clicked and the ones who did not.

If you promoted multiple concerts in the same email campaign, then you can use reports to identify which contacts clicked on each variation.  You can then decide who to follow up with on one concert, both concerts, or none based on that information.

For those who did not click, perhaps a new marketing message will be your plan.

The email readers and nonreaders.

Open rate can also tell you a lot about your marketing message.  For instance, if you are testing your subject lines with multiple email campaigns to sample audiences, email opens can provide you with insights on the strength & success of your subject line.

Read more about the value of the A/B test to improve your open rates.­­­

With CrowdConnect you can quickly run Event Reports that will help you better understand your subscribers as well as your patron marketing strategies.

Email Preferences

Email Marketing: What Do You Prefer?

Do you want to deliver carefully personalized, deeply engaging content to your patrons and subscribers?  All you have to do is ask them.

A preference site campaign is a great way to provide your subscribers options.  That way they can decide exactly what type of content to receive from you.

The more you know about a subscriber, the more targeted content you can create to increase their engagement.  Sell the right event to the right patron.

What is a preference site?

An email preference site (or center) allows your subscribers to choose from a variety of settings to help improve your communication with them.  Preference centers build trust and relevance into your marketing campaigns by giving your subscribers greater control over the communication flow. The more control you give recipients, the more likely they are to engage positively with your brand.

Consider what to ask.

  • Frequency of messages
  • Kinds of messages (newsletters vs. special offers)
  • Their personal interests: events / genres of events you offer (concerts, sports, etc.)

Did you know?

Personalization increases subscriber and patron loyalty. And as a result, subscribers are willing to  share more information with you.

In CrowdConnect you can quickly build a preference site campaign that will help you reach your communication goals.

Email Sign Up Form

Email Marketing: Sign Me Up!

Big event coming up?  Without potential patrons to get the message, you are losing sales.

 Establishing a direct, personal communication with your patrons is vital to increasing your ticket sales.

 One of the easiest ways to increase patron acquisition is to create a sign-up form to capture email addresses, mobile numbers, and more.

What is an Email Sign-Up Form?

It’s a web-based form that helps you to collect email addresses of potential patrons.

Did You Know?

Even if you have a subscriber base – Marketing databases naturally degrade about 25-30% every year?   Sign-up forms can help you with an acquisition strategy and ultimately improve your ticket sales. 

Considerations.

The Look & Feel of the Form

Think about the patron experience you want to create. While pop-ups are very noticeable as they take over your webpage, some patrons may find them to be a nuisance.

Based on what you know about your patrons, you should choose the creative that works, for example: creating a lightbox or an iframe.

What is a Lightbox?

A lightbox is another word for pop-up.  It is a module that takes over a webpage browsing window and prompts a patron or prospective subscriber to take an action.

When you use a lightbox or a pop-up, consider limiting its presence to the homepage and/or using a promotion offer.

For Example: You can get X% off your first ticket purchase if you sign up for our email newsletter.

Depending on the sign-up form, you may want to limit this to new site potential patrons rather than everyone who lands on the page.

Another option is to embed your form onto your website as an iframe.

What is an IFrame?

An iframe also known as Inline Frame is code that allows you to embed content into your website.  With an iframe you can add your sign-up form onto your homepage or on a contact us page while keeping your full website branding(?).

Other options.

You can also create full page forms that you can customize and host in CrowdConnect.

CrowdConnect has an easy-to-use  options so you can quickly build pop-ups, full pages, and iframe forms that can be hosted either in the CrowdConnect cloud or installed directly on your web page.

If you are a current client learn more about setting up the form that works best for you.
