Daily Buzz: How Influencers Can Help Your Email Marketing Campaigns
Work with outside voices to build a more trustworthy brand
Looking for a new approach to email marketing? Work with influencers, suggests a recent post on the Campaign Monitor blog. In an age when trust in traditional advertising is down and a focus on relatability is up, influencers can help your organization stand out.
“When influencers work with brands, their marketers are actually reaching out to the influencers’ followers. It’s a way to advertise products and services in a relatable and, ideally, organic way,” says the Campaign Monitor team. “It’s more than an advertising gimmick. People typically value outside opinions, especially when they come from unaffiliated third parties.”
To get started, you’ll need to find the right influencer—and it’s not always the one who’s most popular. Look for individuals who have personalities and values that align with your organization’s, says the Campaign Monitor team.
Once the right person is chosen, there are many ways to bring that person into your email marketing strategy. For one, you can use influencers to add an emotional element to your campaign. Let them share relevant stories and opinions related to your industry or organization.
“Any content strategy plan should center on a human connection before it’s optimized for online search engines,” the Campaign Monitor team says. “Even if everything else isn’t relatable, stories from these influencers work because they’re windows into their worlds.”
Influencers can also serve as effective advocates when you include them in reviews or testimonials. Your email could include pictures of your influencers along with quotes describing their experiences with your organization. This strategy makes your organization more trustworthy because readers can match a real person to the review they’re reading.
