As you can see below, delivering highly relevant content is a top goal for marketers, right up there with driving additional traffic to the website and increasing sales conversion and revenue.

Why content?

And it’s a good thing, too. After talking to Brindisi Chan, Marketing Manager-Webinars, Vocus, I learned that some of the top challenges facing the Vocus Blog audience are:

  • Writing effective subject lines
  • Finding the proper send frequency
  • Improving list sign-up

In each of these challenges, content plays a key role.

After all, effective subject lines accurately depict the content in the email. If the content is relevant, so is the subject line. The content gets you in the ballpark, and then A/B testing helps you narrow down your most effective messaging of that content.

Send frequency ties very tightly with your content calendar. Getting a better understanding of your audience (notice I said “audience” and not “customers”) through the content you produce helps you better understand how and when they want to receive your email. Again, once you’re in the ballpark, testing your send frequency helps you further refine your schedule.

There are two important factors to improving list sign-up. Creating value in the content you’re asking prospects to sign up for, and then communicating that value. Once you have those two things down, you can find some pretty innovative ways to get those messages in front of prospects and get them on your list.
