Written by Cody Beavers

One of the most essential campaigns in your email marketing strategy is the automated Welcome Email. When new subscribers join your list, you’ll want to welcome them to your community with an email immediately after they join. Having an automated Welcome Email can help you foster better engagement with your brand, products, and events. It’s also an important first step when building a loyal subscriber base.  


Convert your prospects into engaged community members with these Welcome Email tips.


Have A Great Introduction  

Your subject line and introduction should stand out in your participant’s inbox. Make sure to incorporate your organization’s branding and personality from the start.


Call-out The Benefits

Consider reinforcing your subscriber’s decision to sign up for your emails by offering a quick list of community perks. This reminds subscribers why joining your email list was a great idea. 

Offer a Deal

By offering a discount or gift, you create excitement and goodwill between your organization and your new subscribers. It may even encourage them to make a purchase! 


Include a Clear Call to Action

Every Welcome Email should have a clear call to action that stands out. Make it easy for your readers to understand what it is that you want them to do next, whether that’s to learn more about your organization or to register for an event. Inspire your subscribers to act immediately by using words like “Purchase Now” or “Sign Up Today.”

 

Include eye-catching images

As you welcome your new subscribers to your community, consider placing your product or event front and center. Use professional and bold images that can drive interest and engagement.


Be helpful

Educate your subscribers about your organization and mention any upcoming events. This information is especially crucial in the early stages of your customer’s journey.


Go Social 

Including links to your social media sites is another key component of an effective Welcome Email to fuel engagement from your new subscribers. 

 

Welcome Emails are the start of a lasting bond you’re going to have with your participants. A bond that will ultimately become a part of their experience with your organization and in future events. Make it a beautiful one!
