If you’re an ecommerce marketer, you send tons of emails regularly.
Black Friday, Valentine’s Day, BOGO, order confirmations, thank you mails, cart reminders—the list is endless. And if you aren’t promoting the right product to the right people at the right time, all those mails are useless.
Generating revenue (and not simply opens and clicks) via email marketing requires a strong strategy. It’s not about batching and blasting or promoting as many products as you can cram into one email.
Cloudways, a cloud hosting provider that connects with cloud services like Amazon and Google, recently reached 48% YoY growth shortly after being acquired by DigitalOcean for $350 million.

Now, should you pump out gated ebooks and “state of the industry” lead magnets that generate low-to-no intent MQLs, or tap into existing demand to build a pipeline of high-intent leads?
Do you use Google Ads? For many businesses, it can be one of the most cost-effective channels for driving leads and sales. If you do it right, that is.
Google estimates that for every $1 a business spends on Google Ads, they receive $8 in profit. And yet, even with those potentially impressive margins, there are five common mistakes that lead to lost revenue.
Are you sold on the idea that it’s beneficial to understand your customer personas?
Hope so. If not, it’s guesswork. When you know who your customers are, where they are, what they love, and what they hate, you can market to them much more effectively.
You’ve worked all quarter on a new content marketing series and conversions are ticking upwards.
Do you attribute these conversions exclusively to your content? What about the customers who clicked through to your article from your social media page—do you attribute those conversions to socials or to the article (or both)?
It’s a cultural trope to “want what you can’t have,” but it’s also a principle based on decades of psychological research.
That principle, scarcity, is incredibly powerful in marketing, persuasion, and conversion optimization—when done right, especially in a free market with limited resources. If people believe that they’ll be missing out on something, they’ll be prompted to act more quickly to get it.
No business starts out with the goal of blending in. Yet, standing out from the competition is one of the biggest challenges entrepreneurs and marketers continue to face.
