Top 7 Tools You Need to Write Emails Like a Professional




If you think email marketing is irrelevant and no one reads emails anymore, then you are wrong: research by Statista.com shows that the number of emails is growing from year to year. This means that they are still read – take a look at your mail: there will be letters about registrations, promotions of online stores, changing the password, etc.

In this article, we'll take a look at the trends of the outgoing 2021 and take a look at 7 useful email marketing tools to grow your business.

Trends 2021

1. AI technologies in email marketing software. AI is now ubiquitous and is heavily used to create emails and promote newsletters allowing marketers to be focused on their products and services. How is AI helping today?

- Smart dispatch. Thanks to AI, you can improve your rankings by sending emails at the right time when your followers are likely to open them.

Personalized content. AI can send smart recommendations based on customer behavior, location, interactions on your website or mobile app, and more.

Optimized themes. The subject lines can be inconsistent. AI can analyze your correspondence and identify the best topics for your clients.

2. Interactivity and gamification. Customer engagement is the goal of sending emails. Interactivity will help to achieve it, especially since it is now gaining momentum, and allows if used correctly, to raise conversion by three times, if not more. Interactive buttons, short videos, GIF images, animations, quizzes, puzzles, product cards with dynamic price tags used in your emails can encourage the user to interact with you. As practice shows, these elements can increase the engagement of readers at times.

The most winning engagement tool is a short video introducing a new product, presenting a team, or upcoming promotion campaigns. For example, you can make a video where the final part is blurred, as if creating intrigue for a potential client – so they will definitely go to your site, hoping to find out what is hidden behind the blurred screen. To get a high-quality video with such a technique, you need to master one of the simple, user-friendly mp4 editors.

3. Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) technology. Accelerated mobile pages open up new, convenient options for email recipients, for example, buying goods directly from an email without visiting the company's website. Thus, interaction with customers is accelerated, conversion is growing, and marketers receive up-to-date information about users, which they can use in the future when forming email newsletters.

Such templates for email marketing help to add various interactive elements to emails: carousel with pictures, pop-up blocks, dialog menus, feedback forms, lists, etc. The dynamic content can be implemented using email layout services. Any layout designer can also make an HTML template and use it.

4. User-Generated Content. These terms mean comments of real users about a product/service, their reviews, photos, reposts with branded hashtags posted on social media. That is everything that consumers themselves create. Such content inspires a lot more trust among potential users than a typical email marketing campaign.

5. Omnichannel. Nowadays, marketers are increasingly using omnichannel communication with the audience. Email newsletters are combined with posting in social networks and chats in instant messengers, linking all this into a single environment for interaction with customers. For example, when subscribing to a newsletter from social networks, you can offer the user a bonus, discount, gift certificate.

Email Marketing Tools

As we have already defined above, email remains one of the main channels of communication between companies and their audience. But even experienced marketers having an email generator at hand can have trouble preparing emails. How to "hook" the user and induce them to open your email among the whole heap of emails? How to make sure that it reads the letter to the end, appreciates and remembers your proposal? Here are 7 useful tools to help you get the most out of your email.
