Strangely enough, sometimes the best way to see whether your email marketing campaign is doing well or not is to do some internal testing. Just for a moment, you can disregard what your metrics and analytics tell you and put the changes you want to make out to your subscribers directly.

But, first, let’s figure out how to set up testing so that it provides you with honest-to-goodness results.

  1. Pull 100 random email addresses from your list
  2. Divide them into two separate groups
  3. Only test one change at a time
  4. Set one group as the control (what you’re already doing) and the other as the change
  5. Monitor the results
  6. Request feedback through directed surveys about which your subscribers prefer

We’re going to look at 4 of the most common places that marketers like to update in their emails and walk you through how to do it.

Like any social contract, though, there are consequences if you break that trust: the dreaded unsubscribe button.

If readers unsubscribe, you can pretty much guarantee they won’t be coming back to your blog. Most people passively cut through their email content. Once they’re annoyed enough with you to actually go through the process of unsubscribing, they’re annoyed enough to stop visiting your site. Email marketing is only as valuable as its content.

The worst thing you can do is tell your readers every single time a post goes up. The truth is, they may love your site, but no one but your mother cares that much about your site. The trick, then, is to find a balance between overwhelming your readers and not communicating with them at all.
