Benefits of Email Marketing: Personalization

July 1, 2015 / by Jessica Miley

Spam_folder_in_emailHave you checked your email yet today? Let me guess there were about a dozen or so spam emails that you didn’t want to have anything to do with. But why not? I am sure there were a few of those emails that could have been helpful, so where did these companies go wrong?

Most businesses understand the benefits of email marketing but know little about personalization of those emails, which is interesting because emails that are personalized generate 6 times higher transaction rates than those emails sent that aren’t personalized. Do I have your attention now? Let’s dive in and take a closer look.

What are the Benefits of Personalizing Your Email Marketing?


Benefit #1 - Increase the likelihood of being read

When you see an email in your inbox that is sent to “Dear Customer” and has a subject line that is even less appealing, you are more likely to delete said email. But if you are greeted with your name and the subject line offers something that would interest you, would you open it? Heck yea you would!

Benefit #2 - Increases trust

Building trust is not an easy task for a business to achieve. Start with ditching the spammy emails and you can be one step closer to earning that trust. How do you know that you aren’t sending these crappy emails? Are the emails helpful to the recipient? If you answered no to this question, then my friend you have a spammy email!

Benefit #3 - Increases engagement

So what happens when your email attracts the attention of your recipient and they open your email?     Having personalized content that continues past the subject line is key to increasing engagement         within your email. That means they will be more likely to click on links, accept an offer or share the       email via social media links. Click here to learn more about writing personalized content for emails.


So there you have it, you now know what a few of the benefits of email marketing with personalization can do to help your business. So why aren’t businesses making an effort to change their marketing strategy? It might be easier to automate spammy emails and maybe the companies just don’t care.
