Tuesday Tips Email Marketing

"When I was assigned our weekly Tuesday Tips blogging task, for the first month, I just did what had always been done: I wrote a compelling marketing tip in blog form. The only thing was… no one was engaging, and we weren't seeing results.

I quickly realized that we needed to revamp our Tuesday Tips."

-Sarah Wai, Inbound Marketing Specialist

In November 2015, Tribute Media realized their Tuesday Tips campaign needed an overhaul. For some time, they were writing compelling tips in the form of blog posts with the hopes of engaging an audience they had built over the course of a year. However, they didn't see the engagement they hoped for, and so the journey to improve Tuesday Tips began.

In January 2016, Tribute Media created a new and improved way of sharing their marketing expertise through Tuesday Tips as an email marketing campaign.

THE CHALLENGE

When the Tuesday Tips blog was up and running in 2015, Tribute Media saw too few views and limited engagement. To engage the audience, Tribute Media went through a series of brainstorming sessions and implemented new processes that integrated the Inbound Methodology to create a campaign that consisted of a series of branded and personalized emails that pointed to blog posts as resources. These blog posts then reached a variety of buyer personas via smart content, persona-applicable CTAs and landing pages that brought them further along in the Buyer's Journey.

THE SOLUTION

Tuesday Tips marketing email

The initial email in the campaign informed blog subscribers that there was a change, and there were many positive responses and feedback from leads that confirmed to Tribute Media that this was the right direction. As the email campaign continued, the Tribute Media team did a variety of A/B tests to continue improvement upon the initial model. Some tests were successful, and others gave Tribute Media the opportunity to learn and utilize different tactics for future email sends.

Through the A/B testing process, Tribute Media was able to identify different segments of recipients and get a glimpse into how those segments could be targeted in the future. Those lists were then used (and still are) to retarget and re-engage leads. The A/B testing still continues and will continue to ensure that Tribute Media is always improving and always drawing in valuable leads. The return on this campaign to-date has been very positive.

THE RESULTS

The industry average for a marketing services provider is currently:

  • 7.2% email open rate

Current Tribute Media averages for this campaign are:

  • 14% email open rate
