The Most Important Email You’ll Ever Send

cover

The Welcome email, it all stops or starts there!

Collecting emails and building up a database of names is arguably one of the most important steps you can take in building your business. 

The more names…the more opportunities you have to sell. 

And if you are collecting email addresses – then you need a strong Welcome email. 

It’s the most important email that you will send. 

Here’s why: 

According to Omnisend

  • Customers expect them: 74% of email subscribers expect a welcome email after providing an email address. 
  • High open rates: Welcome emails have an average open rate of 30.45%. That’s a 202% lift over usual email campaigns.
  • It builds trust: Many customers don’t trust newly discovered brands. A strong welcome email will help warm up new members faster and push them further through the sales funnel.
  • More customer touchpoints: many brands invite new subscribers to follow them on social media, or to respond with their questions.

But many brands and advisors don’t effectively use welcome emails. 

Let’s change that. 

Below are three examples that stood out to me. Let’s take a look.
