Email marketing is a form of promotion which is used for establishing or building a strong
networking relationship with the customers. It not only helps in brand promotion but also in
increasing the sales of an enterprise. A marketer can send an advertisement mail or a newsletter
to the potential customers for an organization. However, while preparing or drafting the copies of
these mails a marketer should keep a few things in mind. There are often common mistakes
made by an entrepreneur while organizing an email campaign.

One of the most common flaws is when a person does not make use of an updated list of email
promotion. An opt-in list is the one that carries authentic names and mail addresses of all those
who may show interest in the products offered. However, many times marketers select a list that
contains fake names and addresses. Such names and addresses lead your messages to be bounced
back or spammed. You can use different types of email marketing software to collect genuine
names and addresses from the server. Another flaw which is often conducted is that a person
makes use of unnecessary content or information in the messages. Avoid adding the content that
is not required by a customer. One should provide that sort of information which can be fruitful
or useful to a corporation. Therefore, write to the point and furnish details from a customer’s
perspective. Many times the subject line does not capture attention of the target audience towards
the letter. It for this reason, a person should keep the subject line of the message crisp, unique
and mind-gripping. Avoid using a lot of images or pictures simply for the purpose of making the
mail impressive in appearance. This may land you in trouble as your mails might get spammed
leaving the online reputation at stake. Check if all the links, including URL of the company
website, are working. All these are basic points to remember while organizing a flawless email
campaign.
