Win or Bin? How to stop your emails going straight to trash

Here at the Tree Group we don't adopt an outbound, scatter-gun approach to sales. We simply don't spam strangers with emails that offer nothing to them.

We use an inbound approach - know your ideal buyer, target them with the right content at the right time and build a relationship with that buyer. So when they reach a stage in their buying journey where they are ready to buy, you are top of their list.

It sounds easy, doesn't it?

I always put myself in the position of a potential buyer when I am designing an email campaign with these questions. Would I open it? Do I trust it? Do I know this person or brand? Why would I open it? What is it offering me? Why should I spend my time reading it? And the list goes on.

If you are anything like me, I scroll through my emails first thing. You have a few nanoseconds to impress me or you are going straight to my deleted items. If you've really hounded me with the same old content I might even complain about you to my ISP.


Get Personal

I want to think that a brand knows me. Knows what I like and don't like. Knows not to email me at the busiest time of my day. Knows why I might engage with them. Knows what rings my bell. 

I really like this article on personalising emails because it highlights how to start creating a relationship with your buyer via email.:
