## What is Email Marketing?
When you think about email marketing, you probably think about sending emails to your friends and family. However, email marketing is so much more than that. Email marketing can be used for a variety of different purposes, including:
– Promoting a new product or service
– Letting your audience know about an upcoming event
– Keeping your audience up-to-date on the latest news
You can also use email marketing to keep your audience engaged and interested in what you have to say. For example, if you have a blog, you can send your audience a weekly email that contains a blog post that they can read. This way, your audience doesn’t have to go to your blog every time they want to read a new post. They can just click on the link in the email and read the latest blog post right from the email.
## How to Set Up an Email Campaign in Mailchimp
Mailchimp is a popular email marketing platform that allows you to create, send, and track your email campaigns. You can use it to create email campaigns for your blog, social media, or any other type of website that you want to promote.
To get started with your first email campaign in MailChimp, follow these steps:
1. Click on the “Campaigns” tab at the top of the page.
2. Click “Create a New Campaign”.
3. Enter a name for your campaign.
4. Select a template for your email.
5. Add your email list.
6. Add a subject line.
7. Add an image.
8. Add content.
9. Save your campaign and send it out.
Now that you have your first campaign set up, it’s time for you to start sending out your emails. Let’s take a look at some of the things that you need to keep in mind when you’re writing your emails:
## The Importance of a Subject Line
The subject line of your email is going to be the first thing your audience sees when they open your email, so it’s important to make it stand out. You want to make sure that your subject line is short and to the point. You don’t want your audience to have to read your entire email just to find out what the subject is.
In addition to being short, the subject line also needs to be relevant to the email that you’re sending out. If you’re trying to promote a new blog post, for example, you might want to include the title of the blog post in your email subject line so your audience knows exactly what the email is about.
Here are a few examples of subject lines that you might use for different email campaigns:
Promote a New Blog Post: “New Blog Post!”
Let Your Audience Know About an Upcoming Event: “Upcoming Event!”
Keep in Touch: “Just wanted to let you know that I’ve been thinking about you lately.”
## What to Include in Your Email Body
Your email body is the part of the email where you’re going to tell your audience what you want them to know about your business and what you’re offering them. This is where you can tell them about your new products or services, promote your upcoming event, or anything else that you think your audience would be interested in.
When writing your email body, keep the following things in mind:
Keep it short. Your audience doesn’t have time to read long emails.
Make it easy to read. Make sure that the font size is large enough for your audience so that they don’t have to squint to read the text.
Use bullet points. Bullet points are easier to read than long paragraphs of text, and they also make your email look more professional.
If you’re promoting a new service or product, make sure to include a link to the page where your audience can learn more about it.
Don’t forget to include your contact information. Include your email address, phone number, and any other information that you feel your audience might need to contact you with.
Let’s look at an example of an email body that you could use for a blog promotion email:
“Hey, I just wanted to send you a quick email to tell you about a new article that I wrote for my blog. I’d love it if you could check it out and let me know what you think.
## Including Images in Your Emails
Images are a great way to make your emails stand out from the other emails that your audience is receiving. Images can also help your audience connect with you on a more personal level.
Images can be added to your emails in a number of different ways. You could include an image at the beginning of your emails, at the end, or in the middle.
You could also add an image to your email that links to a page on your website that contains more information about the product or service that you’re promoting. This could be a picture of the product itself, a video, a testimonial, or even a photo of the person who is promoting the product.
For example, here is an email that I sent to my email list that includes an image:
I wanted to share with you a new product that I recently added to my website. It’s called “The 5-Minute Workout,” and it will help you get in shape in just 5 minutes a day. Here are some testimonials from people who have already used it:
Here’s what one person had to say:
“I’ve been working out for years, but I just didn’t have the time to get to the gym. Then I discovered the 5-minute workout. Now I can get in a quick workout in the morning and still have time for everything else that I need to do during the day.”
