10 Section I page 10 Best Practices The future? Responsive design

11 Section I page 11 Target your audience

12 Section I page 12 Segment your target list Why? Whenever possible it is recommended to segment your list, the more targeted you are the better your response rate Don’t worry about the total number of recipients, worry about the possible number of conversions You can segment: By demographics (geographical area, job title, company name, etc.) By behaviour (opened a previous email but did not take action, etc.)

13 Section I page 13 Segmenting with Neolane You can segment (include or exclude) by: Job title, department, industry, company name Country, postcode Users that have clicked, opened, not clicked or not opened previous emails Mix several subscriptions and de-duplicate users

14 Section I page 14 Be extra careful with sending frequency Why? Every industry reacts differently to emails, but they all have one thing in common: they already receive too many emails. Commercial pressure should be taken into account when booking a slot for a client When? Time of the day and day of the week have an importance on the responsiveness. NEVER SEND TWO EMAILS THE SAME DAY.
