Keep It Simple and Easy
When a user sees a long email, there are great chances that it will be deleted. People don’t have much time or patience to read long emails. So keep it Simple and Easy to read. Write less but be concise. Unlike the lengthy content needed for Search Engine Optimization, your email should be simple, conveying only the most important message
you want to get across.
Include Obvious Links
Your email is a perfect aid for search engine marketing since one of its purposes is to redirect your clients to your website or product page. It wouldn’t hurt for you to add the link of the page of your website you want them to visit.
Adhere to Spam Tips
Last thing you want to happen is to be perceived as Spam right from the start. Some email security measures can detect if the email received is coming from an email address that sends out lots and lots of emails, and sometimes, automatically tags the email as Spam and your email goes to the Spam folder and doesn’t even reach the inbox of your future client. At times, it’s your future client who tags it as Spam and any other messages you send will go to the Spam folder, unread. So do not send too many emails per day from one email address and keep your email simple, interesting, if you have to have an image, one will do. If you need to put a link, one will do. And do not bombard one email address with many emails. That can be really irritating, even to you.
