Selling via email is different from trading on a sales page. Sales listings must create the impression that they only have one chance to sell and must work out all the benefits and close immediately.
On the other hand, email has the advantage of relationship and constant contact. Here are some handpicked tips on how to use email for sales success.
Relationships first, then sales First
Engage and retain your readers. It will open your emails every time. Once your emails have been opened, and you’ve earned your readers’ trust, you can confidently sell aftermarket without alienating your list.
If you oversell without building trust, readers are likelier to give up than buy. So how do you make that trust? Provide original, unique, and quality content for the direct benefit of the reader.
Every time they read an email from you or buy a product from you, they should feel better. Do this consistently, and your readers will begin to believe in you and your products.
Use Multiple Selling Techniques via Email
Email allows you to use tactics that sales letters don’t. One of them is a problem > issue > issue > solution formula. Put.
You send emails about the problem and have yet to offer a solution. You can submit a lot of value simply by explaining the situation. After all, you offer an innovative and effective solution.
For example, you run an investment newsletter. You can send this series of emails:
Why can only some people beat the stock index?
Why do most people choose lousy money managers?
Why can only some people retire at 60, even if they manage their investments properly?
In the fourth email, you finally reveal your innovative investment product.
If you have a large readership and your readers understand your email “solution,” they’ll be happy to get their hands on the product.
Build the problem by providing value, then offer a solution when they’re ready to buy.
