When someone subscribes to have your newsletters delivered to their inbox on a regular basis, the recipient is putting a great deal of trust in your company. That new subscriber is making a commitment based on their previous experiences with your brand or business and the content that they have already familiarized themselves with.
You should make the most of the positive sentiment that encouraged a particular user to become your newsletter subscriber. This is just like the need to capitalize on the good feeling that a prospective customer usually has before they make a purchase and become a fully-fledged client. One of the best ways to seize this opportunity is by sending a customer-centric newsletter sign-up email that stands out in crowded inboxes with a welcoming and personalized message while containing an added value for the recipient.
A newsletter sign-up email is a welcome message that you send to new subscribers. It is the first communication that you will have with a user when they begin the new phase of their relationship with your business, which in this case is agreeing to receive regular content via email. Leveraging email to nurture that relationship is an effective marketing strategy that can build trust in a brand by providing additional information and added value.
Unlike other kinds of welcome messages, a newsletter sign-up email doesn’t have to be the very first impression that you make on a user since they have already engaged with your content before deciding to subscribe. The purpose of these emails is to build up a connection between your business and the recipient of your newsletters, which is more-or-less the same as with any other type of welcome email.
Businesses can increase their click-through rates by sending emails from a specific person rather than just a generic company email. Moreover, emails that are personalized and address the recipient by name can increase loyalty, trust, and engagement.
Welcome emails can have much greater open rates. As such, welcome emails can be used to generate more revenue than other promotional emails in the long run (by providing valuable content that engages recipients).
First of all, since welcome emails may be the first communication that a new subscriber receives from a business, they should show gratitude to the recipient in order to create a good first impression. A simple “thank you” can go a long way in building trust and loyalty at the beginning of what will hopefully be a long and happy customer-business relationship.
