Like logistics, marketing has many channels and considerations in order to be effective. Today we bring you email tips for manufacturers and other industrial companies in order to continue the spirit of giving best practices to manufacturers and the industry at large in order to have a more effective company overall. In fact, if manufacturers or industrial companies aren’t effective at marketing, they aren’t able to gain new customers to ship freight to! We hope you enjoy this educational article.

Email marketing is a powerful tool for growing and developing different types of businesses. However, many industries are still unaware of the power of using an appropriate email marketing strategy. Many manufacturers and industrial companies are still stuck in the one-off batch and blast mode of email marketing. That strategy is not likely to work very well in industrial marketing where most of the purchases are expensive and complex products with long sales cycles, multiple decision-makers and stakeholders are involved, and they involve a much higher risk if a wrong decision is made.

Here are seven email tips for manufacturers to improve your email marketing strategy in the manufacturing and industrial sector:

1. Avoid SPAM at all costs

The last thing that you want is for your emails to end up in someone’s spam folder or have your emails banned from someone is in the box. Before you even start an email marketing campaign, you should print out the latest copy of the CAN-SPAM act to remind yourself of some email marketing principles such as any recipient must have given their consent before receiving commercial email, have an option to unsubscribe from receiving further emails, do not mislead the recipient about the content or the origin of the email, use approved methods to get a recipient’s email address.

2. Personalize Your Emails

You should avoid sending generic emails. Your recipients are not all the same, and you should make distinctions between them by segmenting your database. This means sending the same type of email diversified in some key aspects depending on the type of recipient. The content and filters of platforms such as Litmus and Reach Mail, which is based on personal data, geography, activity, and devices used, let you automate the entire process to narrow your focus and identify the ideal sub-section of your list.

3. Increase your Traffic and Clicks

By creating the perfect email marketing campaign, you will have the power to turn emails into clicks and traffic to your website. Sending relevant links to your subscribers will drive them to your website, and this increases the potential for new sales. If you want to give a real boost to your click-thru rates, you should keep in mind that you have to get rid of the clutter. Having an email that has too many graphics and banners will confuse your readers and leave them wondering what they are supposed to click on.

4. Offer Quality Content

You should always provide useful, quality content in an email, and links to further information. Your emails should be more informative than sales-related, especially in the manufacturing industry. Talk about your company’s safety standards, advertise interviews with experts and discuss pressing matters in your industry. Not presenting your information in a clear and accurate way will put off your recipients. You can take advantage of online tools to help you with your content writing, use Australian Help and Oxessays as copywriting tools for writing your emails and Bigassignments to help you to edit your content.

5. Optimize Your Subscriber List

Do not rush out and buy an email list to get started with email marketing. You should grow your in-house subscriber list and get to know your customers and what they need from you.

6. Link your email platform with other channels

Email platforms, external databases, e-commerce, social media, and business intelligence systems can all be linked to optimize your business and reach more potential clients. Platforms such as Mail Chimp and Mad Mimi allow you to connect and integrate every system, synchronize the information on each and have them communicate with each other.

7. Automation and tracking

You should try to make your email marketing strategy as efficient as possible with email marketing automation. Platforms such as the mentioned Litmus and Reach Mail will let you automate the entire process. Analyzing and tracking your campaigns’ performance is also essential. Using the analysis tools and reports available from the platforms we suggested will allow you to check and optimize your clicks, traffic, and sales.
