Stuck in a constant loop of manual processes, back and forth feedback, and repetitive tasks?
Your email team is probably ready to pull their hair out in frustration, and they’re not the only ones.
When you’re relying on an outdated, traditional approach to building emails, your customers and subscribers suffer as well.
Below we’ll examine how slow, manual email marketing processes negatively impact your customers.
Timeliness is everything
If it takes you days or even weeks to create an email, then there’s something fundamentally wrong with your processes.
Whether it’s too many stakeholders in the kitchen, tools that don’t talk to each other, or a plethora of last-minute revisions, these roadblocks delay your email campaigns and hinder your relevance and timeliness in the eyes of your subscribers.
Being able to send timely promotions to your customers or react to recent news or events is essential for an effective email marketing strategy.
If you’re current email marketing status quo needs days or weeks of leeway for a single email then it’s time to rethink your approach, and prioritize timeliness.
Mobile first, or else
When we see slow, manual email marketing processes, they often go hand in hand with a lack of mobile responsiveness.
For those building emails manually, it’s hard to build truly responsive emails (i.e. emails that automatically resize and adjust proportions and components based on the device that’s viewing the email) without a lot of hand coding and extra design work.
This deficit is then passed onto subscribers and customers who are becoming increasingly frustrated with the lack of mobile-responsive emails. A Liveclicker and Relevancy Group survey found that:
- 32% said the messages are too small to interact with on mobile
- 26% noted that website and landing pages aren’t mobile optimized
- 21% stated that emails aren’t well formatted for mobile devices
It’s clearly having a negative impact on customers, and that’s bad business for everyone.
