Teamwork Produces Improved Delivery Results: A Case Study

Michael Wilhelm, Lead Computer Technician for The Elijah List, noticed a slowly declining trend in the number of The Elijah List email newsletter subscribers. Furthermore, it was taking up to three hours for his current Email Service Provider (ESP) to send out mailings. Rather than his email newsletter going out promptly each morning, some email was often delayed and went out that afternoon, that evening, and even the next morning (a full day late!).

The Elijah List faced these issues but did not have the available internal resources to resolve them on their own. They turned to Net Atlantic for help. The Elijah List needed:

  • Rapidly increasing daily email sending volume
  • Sophisticated support and technology assistance
  • The ability to process high volumes of mailings within minutes
  • Professionally collaborated data analysis of content to raise deliverability rates
  • Direct monitoring of blacklists and ability to immediately address server IP issues.

The results have been excellent. Net Atlantic has been able to assist The Elijah List in sending out their email newsletter quickly, getting more responses to their advising-supported newsletters, developing more consistency in their mailing schedule, and also lowering blacklisting rates.

Numerous challenges are faced throughout email marketing and the development of more compelling campaigns. Without consistency, a solid strategy, and both proper precautionary and response plans, deliverability is a challenging endeavor. A key first step for successful email marketing delivery, inboxing, and response is a strong, experienced ESP (Email Service Provider) as a key partner working together with the sender.

Many high-volume senders face the same challenges as Michael. By working with Net Atlantic, Elijah List’s delivery rebounded, while also creating more consistency, reader engagement, and increased returns on advertisement. Rapid improvements and results were seen in as little as one week.

Should you use video in your email campaigns?

Lots of people are talking about using video in email marketing. And many  love the idea.

6 Simple Ways to Integrate Email and Social Media Marketing

Why should you encourage your email subscribers to engage with you on your social networks?

Well, not all your customers and prospects want to engage with you at the same level. And each medium (email, blog, Twitter, Facebook, etc.) gives your audience an opportunity to connect with you in a different way. For instance, email is great for some, but others might prefer the lower commitment of following you on Twitter (especially if they are new to your brand). Rather than lose them altogether if they decide to unsubscribe from your list, you can make them aware of the different ways they can stay in touch with you. They can decide what’s best for them – and you can keep them in the loop.

In addition, by giving your customers and prospects many different ways to connect with you, you’ll broaden your reach over time. This contributes to the growth of your brand – and your bottom line.
