News That’s Worthy: An Eblast Marketing Checklist
Chances are your architecture firm occasionally sends out a mass emailing—announcing a new commission or project completion, a significant award or recognition—to your contacts. [That’s your carefully-curated list of contacts, right? Not simply everyone in the company address book.*]
To get the most out of your digital marketing efforts, check your eblast to see that it fulfills these four strategic points:
- Personalize your content based on the mailing list segments you’ve created
- Keep things fresh by linking out to different sources, such as blog posts, landing pages, videos, etc.]
- Pay attention to all elements of your eblast. Subject lines, headlines and sub-heads, calls to action—they all impact engagement and shape impressions
- Make sure your content is helpful, valuable, or informative. If it’s overtly promotional or pompous, it will alienate the very people you are trying to connect with
