Improve Your Email Campaigns by Removing Zombies from Your Marketing Database [infographic]

improve-email-campaigns

Marketers are always looking for ways to improve their email campaigns and generate quality leads. But if you’re emailing unengaged leads, known as email zombies, you could actually be hurting your deliverability rates and Sender Score.

An email zombie is defined as a lead that engaged with your organization at some point by opening your marketing emails, but hasn’t for a period of time. Sending messages to an email zombie puts your organization's IP address at risk of being blacklisted, preventing you from deploying any emails at all.

According to Return Path’s Global Email Deliverability Benchmark Report, only 81% of permission-based emails sent globally make it into email recipients’ inboxes. Additionally, one out of every five emails lands either in a spam or junk folder (7%) or go missing, which usually means these messages are blocked by ISP-level filtering (12%). This means that nearly 20% of emails are undelivered, hurting the deliverability of your email campaigns.

Simple Steps to Empower Your Sales Team

The Usual Method

Sales force compensation is the largest marketing investment for most B2B companies. In fact, U.S. companies spend over $800 billion on it each year. Traditionally, sales teams have been incentivized a bit differently than the rest of employees. They are on the front lines talking to customers, battling to bring in revenue for your company. Their efforts have been quantified based on the revenue they bring in. We often think of sales people as a different breed of employees: competitive, driven, and motivated by money. Continue reading

B2B Lead Nurturing

 

What is Lead Nurturing?

Most leads aren’t sales-ready when you first contact them. Lead nurturing is a process through which you can maintain a relationship with those leads, track them, and develop them into sales-ready leads rather than letting them go cold.

Why Nurture Leads?

73 % of sales leads are not sales-ready when they enter the top of the funnel but 65% of B2B marketers have not established lead nurturing campaigns. This leaves a lot of room for those leads to go cold over time. These leads aren’t ready to purchase just yet. But don’t forget that there’s a huge opportunity to create a relationship with potential future customers. Remember, they became a lead for a reason and saw inherent value in something you offered. Creating and nurturing long lasting relationships with these leads can help establish trust and loyalty for your organization. Additionally, you can ensure that these contacts are clean and up-to-date by engaging with them as part of a B2B nurture campaign. Continue reading
