Winning the Internet

Boost action rates with follow-up emails

After a great run, the Winning the Internet blog has been retired. However, you can still keep in touch with New Media Mentors here.

Today’s NOI Tip of the Day is a great one. It’s a very actionable and simple way to increase action rates—send follow-up emails!

In the post, Michael Crawford from Freedom to Marry takes you through a case study and gives concrete tips for boosting your action rates by as much as 100%. He writes:

  • Send a kicker 3-5 days after you sent the initial email.
  • The kicker should be short, to the point and have a somewhat more urgent message.
  • Reinforce your theory of change and why it’s critical that the reader takes action.
