Making the most of Email Marketing

Workshop overview:

With real life case studies, you’ll be shown the way to excellence in email marketing, not just for the short term but for the long term.

If you’re not sure where to start with email marketing or what to do with an existing subscriber list, our Making the most of Email Marketing workshop will heighten your marketing campaigns.

Not only covering the basics, you’ll be thrust into the profitable world of designing your templates, setting up subscriber lists, reporting and assessing performance and uncovering tricks and tips.

Plus, we’ll demonstrate a recent Adelaide case study that saw new clients and over $5000 income generated in one year from just eighty subscribers.

This workshop will cover:

  • benefits of email marketing as part of your digital marketing strategy
  • best practices for creating and sending email campaigns
  • Australia's Privacy Legislation, anti spam requirements and email etiquette
  • hints and tips on how to get started with your first email

  • creating an email in MailChimp
  • discussing effective ways to build your email list and grow subscribers
  • segmentation, what data to collect and how
  • uploading subscriber data and matching fields
  • campaign report metrics, with a focus on open and click through rates.

Please note: this workshop focuses on email marketing best practices in general, regardless of email marketing system being used, however most demonstrations and examples provided will use MailChimp. We will ask what email marketing system you use during the online registration process, and if possible, cover it during the session.

Workshop objectives:

  • to provide practical skills in how to get started with your email marketing
