How To Build Trust With Customers In Your Email List
Be Trustworthy In All Things
First and foremost if you want to build trust with your customers you have to be trustworthy. You have to show your honesty in everything you do.
Your reputation online matters as well. It is a huge factor when a customer decides to opt-in to your list in the first place. If you do anything shady it can come back to haunt you.
It is pretty much impossible to get people to trust when you are not honest in all things. Remember that you have work harder to build trust online than meeting someone face to face.
Your email subscribers deserve quality. A sure way to get your emails reported as spam is to send them the same garbage they already get in their spam folder.
Write your own emails. Put your personality into the quality content that you send your customers. Remember we are trying to build life long customers.
You have to be better than everybody else if you want to be successful with email marketing. The same old ends up in the spam folder.
Don’t promote shady product either. Make sure Quality is first and foremost in all you send to you subscribers.
Bogus Subject Lines Are Bogus
Don’t use false or gimmicky subject lines we are not trying to trick people into opening our emails. If you want to know how to get your emails opened and read check out the infographic I got from GetResponse
You want everybody that receives your email to easily understand what it about. Jargon can easily alienate customers that don’t understand what they read.
Alienating people will not build trust with customers so just avoid jargon and slang terms. Make sure the message you send is easily understood by all.
Highlight the Best of Your Company
Always show your best side and highlight the best things about your company. The people that actually open and read your emails will remember the positive.
Don’t exaggerate or make dishonest claims but telling customers about the good stuff is a good thing when trying to build trust with customers.
Show Full Contact Details
Show people who you are and encourage interaction. Remember you are building relationships. We want people to ask questions of us. You want to be their go to person when it comes to the content you are sending.
Make sure it is easy for your customers to send emails to you and respond back in a timely manner. Knowing you are there for them will go a long way when building trust with customers.
It is important that your readers know all the ways they can contact you.
When your content is shared it endorses it making it even better. Make sure you have links in your emails and on landing pages to all popular social media platforms.
Sharing gets your stuff out there and you will get recognition for it.
Timing Is Everything
In the second infographic it shows the best times to send your emails. I had a hard time with this one, my belief was that when you send doesn’t really matter.
But as I sit and think about how I react to the emails sent to me. It is making more sense that when I send is important to building trust with customers
Let your subscribers know what you will be sending next. Explain what you will be sending in your newsletter, when to expect delivery, and who will be sending.
Give Without Taking
You don’t want to oversell with your emails. Make sure that more often than not you are sending quality educational emails. Every email being a promotion will be annoying to your subscribers.
The more you give the more you get this is true in email marketing as in life. It will make your promotions more important the less you promote.
We don’t want to appear spammy, everybody hates spam. When everything is a sales pitch it is just spam.
Make Your Opt-in Obvious
Transparency builds trust but more than that you want your opt-in to stand out. You want every thing you do to be open and transparent not just your opt-in.
Let your subscribers know what you do with their information remember transparency in everything. Don’t say one thing and do something different that is dishonest.
Real user testimonials are great when you are trying to build trust with your customers. If you don’t have real honest testimonials don’t put anything.
Again you don’t want to be dishonest or your readers will pick up on it. Don’t create testimonials with stock photos use the real deal.
Make It Easy To Unsubscribe
People are going to unsubscribe it is going to happen no matter what. You only want subscribers that want to be on your list because those are the ones that will buy from you.
Make it easy for the people that want to unsubscribe. Good bye I say to them and focus on replacing them.
I personally feel like it should be 1 click to unsubscribe.
First and foremost I would like to thank GetResponse for the awesome info graphics. I hope this all made sense. Remember if you want trust be trustworthy.
I know for myself that the reason I even do email marketing is that I want to sell products to my subscribers. Sometimes I get focused on sell, sell, sell.
Try to focus on providing a service first. I truly believe that when you are helping people getting success selling comes naturally.
