How to Conduct a Successful Bulk Emailing

Aug 17, 2007
There are four major steps to conducting a successful bulk emailing. If you carry them out carefully and in order, you will notice a considerable increase in the responsiveness of the lists to which you email, whether they be your own or someone else's.

Step #1: Create Anticipation for Your Bulk Emailing

Effectively creating anticipation is a two-step process. If, for instance, you are planning to advertise a product in your bulk emailing, your first step should be to let your target audience know it is coming long before it does. This will require you to create a buzz and to send out multiple mailings to different lists, obviously including your own. This should also include releasing samples of whatever product you are planning to release in the future.

The second step in the process of building anticipation is to give the readers/subscribers some reason to actually care that you are releasing this product in the future. One easy way in which to do this is to actually target the right audience - one that will be interested in your offer. Another easy way in which you can do this is to give them some specific stake in your project by providing a one-time only offer that they must take you up on or miss out forever. For instance, all members of a certain list will get a discount between certain dates. Or all members of a certain list can be affiliates during a certain period of time; if they miss out, they never get that chance again.

Step #2: Create an Irresistible Offer

Creating an irresistible offer has a lot to do with how you create your product and how you craft your copy. One way in which you can create an irresistible offer is to give subscribers the chance to beta test your product and give feedback. This will help you to implement all of the features that will be irresistible to other subscribers. Another way in which you can create an irresistible offer is simply to over-deliver to a ridiculous degree. Provide excellent bonuses, a reasonable price - and hammer it home again and again with clear, powerful copy.

Another way in which to create an irresistible offer is to make it exclusive, time-sensitive, or one-time only. This immediately induces a rush to purchase the product while it is still available or while it still has certain bonuses.

Step #3: Test Your Subject Lines and Copy Ahead of Time

Before you send out your bulk emailing on the big launch day, you will want to test every single aspect of your copy, of your sale page, of your conversion rates. You may want to email a number of experts in your field who you respect and offer them a free copy of your product if they are willing to review your sales page. Additionally, you may want to mail your product out to a certain segment of your list before everyone else to determine how well it will convert.

Step #4: The Last Step, Send Out the Bulk Emailing

When you're finally ready to send out your bulk emailing to the public, make sure you have coordinated it properly. Get setup with e-zine owners, check your spam rating on the email, and then coordinate the final emailing. If you followed all of the four steps properly, your emailing should succeed.
