re-engagement email campaigns

If you’ve used different subject lines, tried different send times, mixed up your content, and your subscribers still won’t engage with your emails – it’s time to launch a re-engagement email campaign.

According to a study by Salesforce, 63% of marketers said that re-engagement campaigns are “very effective”. A study by Return Path found that 45% of recipients who had received win-back emails read subsequent messages. By sending a re-engagement email to your inactive subscribers, you’ll see who is still interested in your brand and is likely to generate some immediate sales!

To get you inspired, here are a few awesome ways different brands have approached re-engagement emails.

What’s the worst-case scenario? They’ll want to unsubscribe and that’s all right too. At least you’ll be able to clean up your email list. It’s really a win-win.

If people do choose to unsubscribe from your emails, you can always use the opportunity to connect with them via different channels. At the end of the day, that is the point of marketing – creating multiple touchpoints.

Here is a video from Hubspot that pops up when somebody tries to unsubscribe. Not only is it super hilarious, but it also directs you to different ways people can continue to engage with the brand.
