The first way is to make sure that when you’re sending out your emails, you’re talking to a small audience. Small is actually bigger when it comes to your email marketing. You always hear me talking about be something for someone. So, the more targeted and segmented you are with your emails, like you’re talking to one person, they’re going to be more likely to forward it. Because groups of the same kind of stick together. So, if you’re talking to accountants for example, and you’re really targeted in your messaging and you have great content, they’re going to be more likely to then forward that to other accountants that they know.
Tip number two is to make sure that you’re including personalization because that increases your reach. Now, I’m not talking about a first name merge, what I’m talking about is making your emails really personal. Like mentioning something that you know about them. In my coffee and smoothie business, I do this by taking a picture at an event that we’re at, and then sending them that picture with an email afterward. So, it’s really personal, and people love it, and then they’re more likely to share that because they love the picture. Like, “Oh look at what we had at our event, a tiki bar, or a smoothie bar, or a coffee bar.” So, making it more personal will help people then forward your emails along and expand your reach.
A small list that wants exactly what you’re offering is better than a bigger list that isn’t committed.
Tip number three is telling them what you want them to do. You kind of have to guide your email readers and be very specific, letting them know what you want them to do. Now, how most people try and incorporate email forwarding is having a button on the top, or something on the bottom, like forward this to a friend. What I’ve had really great success with my clients is actually telling them within the content. So, for example, if we’re sharing a really great blog post, then immediately afterward we’ll say share this with a friend, or tag a colleague. We’re very specifically telling them what we want them to do..
So, try that out. Try putting your email forwards, your calls to action, directly within your content, in your emails. And see how that increases your email forwards. Those are my three tips for how you can incorporate email forwarding to get better results.
