Even though you’re an email marketer, you must have subscribed the email newsletter with other business or the brands. How many of the emails did you receive with email@example.com? To how many such emails did you responded?
None. Because you are not interested in those brands or the business who do not like to communicate with their customer. This is the lesson for you. Understand it.
It is important for you, as the business/ brand owner to have the engaging communication with your customers. It is the foundation to build a strong relationship with them. It is ideal to shoot the email with your brand’s personal ID. This is because to bridge the communication gap between you and your customer if there is any.
Chatting over the emails with the customers to solve their queries is ideal than communicating over the chat window available on your website. It is important to not to use the firstname.lastname@example.org and use your brand’s email address like email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Relate the customers to the relevant content, depending on the relation your business have with them. Instead of the multiple CTA, include the single yet powerful CTA on the email template.
