How many times have you sent an email and waited …. and waited … and wondered what happened to it? We all have.
In the past, it was normal to have no idea what happened after we sent an email. Did our recipient receive it? Did it get lost in their inbox? Is it in their spam folder? Did they click on my links?
Ebsta’s software lets us know when someone opens your emails and clicks on any links.
This blog will help you discover the power of email tracking and find ways to work faster and smarter, whilst having the insight to improve the effectiveness of your emails and build stronger relationships.
The benefits of Email Tracking
1. Email Tracking saves time
No one wants to get multiple follow-up emails when they haven’t even opened the first one. Email tracking enables you to see whether your first email was interesting enough to your recipient to open. If they haven’t opened the first, they’re unlikely to open future follow-up emails, so you can and should stop there. By preventing unnecessary follow-up emails, email tracking saves time both for the sales rep and the email recipient.
Similarly, if you notice a contact is clicking on the links you sent then you know that you’re currently at the top of their minds. Reaching out to them at that point, when they’re thinking about your proposal, makes that conversation much more relevant and timely.
2. Email Tracking provides context
Email tracking provides you with valuable insight into your email interactions with prospects, customers and partners. You can use this insight to strengthen your outreach by catering to their specific relationship with you.
- If you see that a someone has opened your email multiple times in one day, you can follow up while you’re top-of-mind.
- If you included links in an email prior to a meeting, you can see if your contact has viewed them.
- If you sent a follow up email, you can determine if the recipient is reviewing what you sent.
