Email Idea:

Weekly Roundup Email



Example
Email Template
Email Template Suggestion:

Roundup Email


Notes:
  • Roundup emails are extremely versatile and are a great way to curate content that is valuable to your audience and leverage email as a channel to get that content in front of your contacts.
  • The more content you create the more options you have to spread it throughout all your branded marketing channels. Today is an example of that. Take all the blog posts that you created last week and craft an email roundup blast. In the same way you create roundup blog posts where you grab a title, an excerpt and a link to an article, you will create today's email the same way. However since you were the author of the curated content you get to link your own content not someone else's! Nice work.

Today's Marketing Question

Question:

Can I buy a list when I’m just starting out with email marketing?


Answer:

It can be tempting, but you’ve got to resist that temptation. The only way to get an email subscriber list that will be beneficial to your company is to grow it organically. First of all, many email service providers won’t even allow you to use purchased lists. And secondly, the email addresses found on lists like those are not high-quality leads, to say the least. They will not contain people truly interested in your products or services, since these people didn’t opt-in to your specific email list, so they’ll also be much more likely to mark your emails as spam.
