Mailigen’s new social features can help you connect to new clients via social sharing buttons. Mailigen has social sharing buttons for social websites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit, and others. Mailigen also offers in-depth statistics for your social media efforts, making it easy to see which social network has generated more clicks — and you know, once you’ve discovered where to put your focus, it’s all but smooth sailing.

Writing email subject lines is often guesswork, and, like copywriting, your ability to write a strong subject line can depend on “the flow of the moment”, not only your past experience.
This week’s chart from MarketingSherpa shows the results of a survey given to 1,100 email marketers on the most effective means of acquiring new subscribers.

Data from email marketing reports is often misjudged and even misused. Instead of using statistics to improve campaigns, marketers often use email marketing metrics to show the highest quarter (i.e. their boss) that email marketing is, in fact, efficient. Statistics are too often used to make excuses, not to benefit email marketing campaigns. For example, to avoid misuse of statistics, marketing expert Avinash Kaushik suggests an interesting approach to email marketing metrics: apply a “so what?” test to each and every web metric you look at.
Bounced emails are like all the supervillains in the world combined. They reduce your income, make your email support provider bill bigger, and can even cause blacklisting of your entire list. Fortunately, though, things are getting better in terms of delivery for the average sender: an Epsilon study suggests that about 4 per cent of email campaigns were bounced in the 3rd quarter of 2010 (mind that the email bounce rate relies heavily on the industry, though).
Relevant email makes users happy, makes them act, and makes you happy in the end, as sending relevant emails increases the ROI (Return On Investment) of your entire list.
