1. First and foremost, define your goals. Whether it’s revenue growth, newsletter signups or an increase in subscriber base, an email marketing strategy have specific goals and objectives identified. Without an understanding of what you are trying to achieve, how will you measure success? Let alone, continuously analyze and optimize your efforts.

2. Test, analyze and repeat. Always A/B test the subject lines. It’s one of the most efficient ways to see how recipients are engaging with content. Let your audience dictate what is working and what’s not. Best practice is to evaluate this on a monthly and quarterly basis to proactively optimize for the greatest ROI.

3. In today’s mobile environment, email marketing campaigns should always be responsive, ensuring a positive user experience. Additionally, always check that URLs are active, click-to-call is implemented and hyperlinks are embedded.
