Transcript of The power of Pardot FINAL
Junk folders are rarely checked, emails that are marked as spam are not even received
- Don't use spammy words like "free" and spe"cialis"es or include !!!!!! for emphasis in your subject line!!!!!!!!
Email is a personal form of communication, remember that!
Subject line and sender name
- People are more likely to open an email from a person rather than a brand
- People are more likely to open an email from a woman rather than a man
- Natural, honest, less than 50 characters
- Relevant, intriguing, use questions?
Where do people look on your email?
You do not need to include so much content, less is more!
Every email needs to have a purpose, what would you like the recipient to do? What is in it for them?
Get your customers clicking on links, taking them to your website or landing pages where sign ups and purchases can happen
Use Pardot tracking on your website, people don't want to be sold to but love to buy.
Email best practices
Two things can be achieved on an email that has been opened.
- recipients can read
- recipients can click
Emails are far more restrictive than web pages.
Compelling calls to action (CTA) buttons, text and sub headings.
Marketing Sherpa* Research
You have between 15-20 seconds on average per email that is opened.
In 20 seconds the average person will read 40 - 60 words
Most people will leave a web page in the first 10 seconds, those that stay on a webpage for more than 30 seconds are likely to stay on the page for over two minutes (an eternity for the web!) Nielsen Norman Group - UX training and research
Top left is vital and often the only place your customer will look!
Images are blocked so even the ones in the top left are not looked at.
Sub headings are important!
As shown in example three, more sub headings can lead to higher levels of content consumption.

Pardot plans - how you can help, and benefit
Let the customer's actions dictate the marketing messages they receive next
Build drips as welcome series/re-targeting/recapture/lead nurture etc.
Use emails to collect data!
Results can be used as feedback to target more specifically in the future
Personalisation should add relevance to your message
Track your email recipients' actions from the email onto the website
Retarget with automated emails depending on the actions that they have taken
If somebody clicks the "share" button at the bottom of the emails their Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn account details will then be stored in Pardot
