With all the clients’ acquisition channels present on the market it could be erroneously assumed, that email marketing is no longer a top dog for the marketing campaign. The number of channels for reaching the audience has indeed increased.

The first thing that attracts attention – subject line, personalized with some sort of intrigue hint in it. When noticing an email from you, your addressee must feel as if it is solely created for him/her.

Enhance with video
When you add videos to your email you raise your chances to enhance click rates by almost 300%. Video marketing is a mighty business strategy ( 80% of businesses trust in the power of it ). Videos added to emails compile a perfect powerful combo for the message to be delivered and the desired effect achieved. you do not even need to be a professional video creator and video editor. You may turn to apps that allow you to elevate your visual representation to a quite decent level. For example, consider using a youtube intro maker full of various templates to make your videos lively and warmly perceived. Make it short, up to the point, with some humour ( if the case permits).
