Strategic Planning & Email Program Assessment

The truth: Email campaign planning and overall strategy will define how successful your program is. That’s where we come in — we have the expertise to develop a highly effective email-marketing strategy. We will use our proprietary email methods to analyze the current state of your email-marketing program, identify where you can boost your return on investment (ROI) right now, and build an effective email-marketing strategy from there. Because building without a foundation is, well, a shaky idea.

Start building your foundation here.

Campaign Map

You know where we’d all be without maps? Lost. That’s why we map every touch point of your customers’ journey. (Basically, we take off your marketer hat and encourage you to walk a mile in your customers’ shoes.) We find the holes (read: opportunities) by looking at everything: Frequency. Timing. Calls to action. Offer. Messaging…the works. So we can find out what works. Then, we map out what the customer journey should be – and the campaign you need to get there.

We haven’t had a client yet who didn’t say, “OMG, I didn’t know that!” or “How did you figure that out?”

Your OMG moment starts here ›

10-Point Assessment

Over the past 10+ years, we’ve identified 10 critical aspects of an email program that drive ROI. We’ll conduct a methodical review of each of these 10 points, give you a decisive plan of action for short-term gains, and provide an outline of exactly what needs to be done in the future to experience long-term gains.

We’ll go behind the scenes, analyze your existing data, and break down your current email-marketing strategy to arrive at your ROI Road Map, which will:

  • Uncover sneaky issues hiding in your email that negatively impact performance
  • Identify critical areas of improvement that need to be addressed
  • Tell you what you’re doing right to ensure you keep doing it
  • Give you a prioritized list of changes to implement moving forward

Email Program Management & Ongoing Optimization

Email Program Management

Your email program should be running like a well-oiled machine (and it juuuuust so happens that we are email engineers).

Depending on what you’re looking for, we’ll do any (or all) of the following:

  • Lay the groundwork: We’ll look at everything from your historical email campaign data to your value proposition. In doing so, we’ll figure out how you can nurture your prospects into long-term clients/customers.
  • Develop the strategy: We’ll create a blueprint of your current email marketing campaigns. And then? Create a roadmap of where we’ll take your program, backed by a rock-solid, data-driven strategy.
  • Create the campaigns: We’ve got a full team of copywriters, designers, and developers. The one thing they have in common? They’re obsessed with ROI and know how to get it!
  • Develop custom financial models: You’ll see what levers to pull and know exactly where to focus optimization to maximize your email program’s value.
  • Report on the metrics that matter: We’ll move beyond the opens and clicks to the metrics that matter to you (such as revenue, page views, and list growth, to name a few).
  • Act as your production house: If you need someone to just make it happen, look no further.

Ongoing Optimization

Once you have a rock-solid email-marketing strategy and well-defined campaign objectives in place, then we build on that foundation. We use a process of continuous testing to improve conversions and other key performance indicators.

We create the treatments (subject lines, creative, you name it) and call the statistically significant winners. Plus, you’ll see every peak, valley, and trend along the way — all part of our policy of transparent reporting. All you need to do? Put your feet up and watch your program grow.

Email Creative

Great email campaign creative does more than just sing–it soars. Successful creative connects with customers in ways they may not even be fully aware of. But you can do that only by truly understanding their journey. So our mantra is: Understand. Engage. Convert. The result is a rewarding, long-term relationship. We just hope you’re not afraid of commitment.

List-building & List Management

Maybe you’re just starting off and not sure where to get names. Maybe you bought a list and aren’t pleased with its performance. Maybe you’re dealing with list inactivity or attrition. We can fix any list problem that you can list. The only catch? We’re permission marketers. That means that we won’t just grow your list for the sake of growing it—we’ll grow it only with quality names. Because a smaller, more active list will trump a larger, less active list any day of the week. Just ask your bottom line.

Email Service Provider Selection and Implementation Services

For more than a decade, our email junkies have been getting their hands dirty with Email Service Providers (ESPs) that run the gamut. The result? We know what’s out there, we know what it can do for you, and we know what it costs.

You invest too much time and money into your ESP not to get all you can from it. So whether you’re looking to start from scratch, get more from your current ESP, or transition to a new one, we have you covered.

Get the most from your ESP here.

The Services

ESP Selection

The fact of the matter is this: An email program can only be as sophisticated (or limited) as its ESP. It only makes sense that you would put as much effort into selecting the right platform as you do your email programs. The trick? Finding an ESP that really suits your business needs.

Download a free ESP guide ›

First, we’ll meet with you to uncover your business goals. We’ll identify exactly what you want and need from your ESP to allow your email program to scale in the future. Then, we’ll work within your budget to find an ESP that meets your objectives–not just for where you are today, but where you want to be tomorrow.

  2. IP Warm-up: We’ll make sure that your engagement metrics don’t suffer when you’re ready to launch. Whether you’re new to the world of ESPs or transitioning to a new platform, we’ll develop a custom IP warm-up plan that maximizes delivery.
  3. Customization and Automation: We’ll look at your current email program, identify how to save your team the most time and effort, and figure out which tools best serve your needs and budget.

Email Deliverability Services

Do you know if you have an email deliverability issue? You may know what percentage of your messages is successfully delivered, but do you know if your prospects ever see them? You might have spent thousands of dollars (and countless hours) putting an email campaign together, but if it lands in limbo, your future revenue just landed there, too.

From technical infrastructure to blacklists to engagement, spam, foldering, and beyond, we will dive into deliverability best practices to determine where your emails are going and why they are going there. Nobody wants to give a speech to an empty house — we’ll make sure that every time you grab the mic, the place is packed.

Stop getting derailed by deliverability.

Ongoing Deliverability Monitoring

Good deliverability doesn’t belong on your wish list. Because bad deliverability? It’s a deal-breaker. The kind of deal-breaker that not only blocks you completely but also puts your email in a far-off land that we call the junk folder.

That’s why our deliverability experts have one job: Get you out of the junk box and into the inbox. And they’ll do it by focusing on:

  • Establishing the authentication process
  • Strategic sending recommendations
  • Good email sender reputation monitoring
  • Fostering ISP relationships
  • Whitelisting process recommendations
