Share your Best Emails

Sharecodes-2-2

Some emails simply outperform others. 

We’ve all sent them. The email that just feels perfect as you’re writing it and then gets a great response from the recipients. Whether it's a perfectly composed thank you or a finely worded follow up, those are the emails that you use over and over again with maybe just a quick edit.

In the past, you could always clone a message after scrolling through your list of sent emails in Ace of Sales. But now you can add it directly to your saved messages with a click of a button, and avoid digging through your Tracker to access it later.

Better yet, you can share it with another Ace of Sales customer to use with just another click!

3 Ways to Build Relationships with Shared Messages

1. Work with team members to create the ultimate email.

Share a message back and forth with your team to gather suggestions for improvements, and then share the final version for everyone to use. You’ll show that you value your team’s input, and that you’re invested in their success.

2. Share email starters.

Not every email you write is going to be used word for word by someone else, but often the hardest part of writing a good email is just getting started. Help people out by giving them a point to jump off of and you’ll make their day a lot easier.

3. Say thank you. A lot.

Send your team members, clients and contacts thank you notes for every reason you can think of. Save them and then share them with the same people. It’s like buying a box of all-occasion thank you notes without forking over any cash.

3 Tips for Email Subject Lines that Work

3-email-subject-line-tips

The time you spend writing and creating your emails is a complete waste of time if your customers don't open them. Here are 3 tips for writing subject lines that work:

1. The Element of Surprise - Use words and phrases that aren't expected in the business world, like "10 Business Tips from the Super Mario Bros." or "Why There's No Crying in Marketing."

2. Strike a Juxtapose - Use a combination of words not typically read together, like "Kindergarten - a Year in Prison?" or "Social Media:  The New Fax Machine."

3. Keyhole View - Trade creativity for clarity by simply summarizing the subject matter inside your email, like "Ding! Your Proposal is Ready" or... "3 Tips for Email Subject Lines That Work."

Customer Insight: Less Creation. More Creativity.

By Ace of Sales Customer and Champion, Jeff Blair Over and over, I hear small business owners groan that despite all the work they put into their email marketing efforts, customers don’t respond. But when I peek at their emails, they look like all the others – noisy catalog-like pages or spammy solicitations!

They’ve spent too much time fooling with the technology, building their templates, automating the process, but not enough on creativity. For your emails to be effective, they must be simple, fun, value-focused, and express your unique personality.

I’m full of ideas, but like many small business owners, I lack the technical ability to build graphic-rich emails. When Ace of Sales was introduced, the light bulb went off because this program does all the technical and design work for me. My emails appear clean, branded, and legitimate – not spammy. All that’s left is to have fun.

I use Email Greetings and Ezines as canvasses to express my expertise, ideas, suggestions, promotions, and personality to my customers. I send at least one email to my contact list each week (or at least every other week). I simply plug in my ideas in the form of pictures and words and Ace of Sales designs and delivers them as beautiful, crisp communications.

My company sells closet and garage organization products to contractors. In order to stand out, I bring my products to life! For example, I'll have one of my featured products speak for itself. I use the custom designer in Ace of Sales to add word bubbles to my tie racks and hamper baskets.They may tout one of their benefits or suggested uses. This little shot of personality surprises my customers, endears them to me, and creates dialogue.

My recommendation to small business owners: spend less time creating emails and more time sending creative emails. Use Ace of Sales to connect with your customers by being personable and professional.

Focus on two areas: delivering value and building your personal brand. Let Ace of Sales handle the design and technology for you. It will help put you on your customer’s radar ahead of everyone else.
