How to keep new customers happy and coming back for more

It’s great to see all that effort you’ve put into your promotional campaigns is finally winning you new customers. High five girlfriend! Now the question is, once someone buys from you – then what do you do with them? Their shopping experience doesn’t end once they’ve submitted their order. In fact, it’s only just the beginning. Breaking down the shopping experience… Whether we buy in-store or online, our brains are chemically programmed to activate when we experience something new or exciting. In a nutshell, each time we buy something our Dopamine receptors are activated. You may have heard (or experienced) the term ‘shoppers high’. Well, it’s not a myth. Without sounding too geeky, Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain’s reward and pleasure centres. It enables us not only to see a reward, but to move toward it. Science out of the way – what does this have to do with keeping new customers happy? Short answer = everything. Longer answer = at the point of purchase, and the follow days after, it’s important to captialise on the shoppers high that your customer will be experiencing. This is especially important for online stores as physical products need to be packed and shipped, which leaves a time lag between the handing over of payment to the product arriving in their hands. Compare that to a buying experience from a physical store where the customer is able to walk away with their newly purchased item resulting in instant gratification. So, when it comes to creating an online shopping experience, how do you...

🎄👇🏻+ Free Download [27 Christmas subject lines]👇🏻🎄 The Chrissy decs can remain in the box, but right now you need to start thinking about your Christmas content and email campaigns. Before you break out in a cold sweat, I’ve got you covered with my 4-step plan for getting your email marketing shipshape and primed for one of the most profitable times of the year. The good news… it’s a time of year where people are already in buying mode, and even more good news… email marketing can contribute up to 20% of your sales*. The bad news… every other business will be promoting their Christmas campaigns too, so you’ll be competing for in-box space and your subscribers’ attention. That is why NOW is the time to get on top of your email marketing plan, so here’s my top 4 ways you can start doing that today. 1. Start with your subscriber list  Before you start thinking about what you’re going to send, it’s important to do some list cleaning. Ideally you should do this regularly, but if you don’t then now is the perfect time to start. Why? Because over time contacting ‘inactive’ subscribers (those that stop opening your emails), could have a negative impact on your sender reputation. This means that more of your emails could end up in the Junk folder and not get seen by as many people. Here’s 3 steps to cleaning your list: Step 1. Decide on what makes an inactive subscriber for your business. Perhaps it’s someone who hasn’t opened one or more of your emails...

Email subject lines to test

7 subject lines you need to try

What if I told you that over a third of your subscribers will decide whether or not they will open your message based on your subject line? It’s kind of a big deal. So what can you do to create kick ass subject lines? Glad you asked … Firstly, your mission is to find 2-3 subject line formats that you can rotate depending on what type of email communication you’re sending. It’s important to have a few options to hand because sending the same style of subject line over and over again will lose the magic you’ve worked so hard to create. So with that in mind, let’s look at 7 different styles of subject lines you can start using straight away.   Style 1 | Get to the point With 50% of Australians choosing to check their emails on a mobile device, it’s important to grab your reader’s attention by keeping your subject line short and to the point. Don’t make them think too hard, because when content is too hard to consume we tend to switch off and move to the next thing. Examples for short subject lines: 10 gluten free pasta recipes 70% off starts now Your welcome gift   Style 2 | Length If you’re not entirely convinced that Style 1 is the way to go then start testing short-form against long-form subject lines. Just remember that your subject line still needs to be engaging and to the point. Don’t just add in words that don’t add value. The idea for testing subject lines is to test ONE thing at a time.
