Harnessing AI to Supercharge Your Email Marketing: A Journey with ChatGPT
As digital marketers, we are always on the hunt for tools that make our lives easier and our efforts more effective. I found myself in this same quest when I was attempting to create an email drip campaign. The struggle was real – devising a schedule, crafting the perfect messages, maintaining consistency while keeping it engaging… the list of challenges goes on. It was exhausting and left me with little time to focus on other crucial aspects of my business.
This is where ChatGPT, an advanced language model by OpenAI, came in as a lifesaver. I realized that if leveraged correctly, ChatGPT could help me create a compelling and engaging drip campaign, and I wasn’t disappointed.
With my struggle and the potential solution in mind, I want to share how I managed to use ChatGPT to build a powerful drip campaign. The campaign comprised six emails, each serving a specific purpose, and while my product is a Powerapps CRM (CRM in a Can), the concepts can be applied to any product or service.
ChatGPT works best through a series of refinements and resubmissions. If you’re not getting the results you want, talk to it like an assistant who’s submitting a first draft. Tell it what you like and what you don’t until its perfect!
The Email Campaign Structure:
Email 1: Sent immediately after sign-up, this email is your digital handshake. This is your first interaction with the customer. Make sure it counts. Thank them for their interest, briefly introduce your product, and give them something valuable right away. This could be a guide, tips or resources related to your product.
Email 2: Sent 2-3 days later, this is your chance to get users engaged with the software. Highlighting the Features In the second email, highlight the key features of your product. Make sure to focus on how these features can make their life easier or their business more successful. We did this by sharing a link to our CRM in a Can training course.
Email 3: Sent 5-7 days later, delve deeper into how your product can solve common pain points in their business. If you have customer testimonials or case studies, this is a great place to share them.
Email 4: Sent 7-10 days later, focus on customization and advanced features This email should highlight advanced features or customization options. Show your customers how they can tailor your product to their specific needs.
Email 5: The Special Offer – Sent 14-21 days later, nothing sparks interest like an exclusive offer. In the fifth email, provide a special deal for your new subscribers, encouraging them to make a purchase.
Email 6: Sent 30 days after signing up, send The Follow-up. Even if a lead hasn’t converted yet, don’t give up. Send a follow-up, re-emphasize the unique selling points of your product, and remind them that you’re there to answer any questions they might have.
This process, while seemingly simple, was a game-changer for my marketing efforts. Using ChatGPT, I was able to not just create, but also fine-tune my campaign, making it more targeted, engaging, and effective. The best part? I was able to do this while freeing up time for other aspects of my business.
If you’ve been struggling to create an effective email campaign, or if you’re simply looking for ways to enhance your email marketing, I can’t recommend ChatGPT enough. The time you save can be spent on further refining your strategy or focusing on other crucial aspects of your business. (And yes, this blog was also constructed with the help of ChatGPT!)
