”Email marketing is for everyone.” That’s always been my motto.

Email marketing has consistently been the best-performing digital marketing channel. It has remarkable ROIs and mind-boggling potential. It’s flexible enough to adapt to your customers’ needs without being overwhelming. Moreover, unlike its competing forms of digital marketing, it’s centralized.

So, it’s only reasonable to assume that your medical spa can benefit from a thorough email marketing strategy. And you’d be correct!

The Amazing Perks of Email Marketing

Let me start by praising the unparalleled efficacy of email marketing.

Today, email marketing campaigns earn an average 4,200% ROI. They power modern digital marketing strategies by increasing awareness, exposure, and customer loyalty. In fact, 87% of marketing professionals cite email-based marketing efforts as critical to successful campaigning.

Medical spas aren’t the only beneficiaries. Email marketing has supported countless businesses across a wide range of industries, including:

Easy to Use and Automate

Income aside, email marketing is incredibly convenient. For users, it’s a one-way ticket to the booking page. For businesses, it’s an easily configurable way to turn contact details into perennial revenue. You need little more than some email marketing automation and a basic template to build relationships and re-engage audiences.

Moreover, you can start sending emails for different purposes, such as:

Track and Monitor Campaign Results

The practicality of email marketing extends to its statistics. Unlike traditional direct mail marketing, emails have immediate and tangible results. You can track countless stats from a single page, including open rates and click-throughs.

So, you’re never sending emails at random. Your performance always informs your marketing. Your practice maintains complete control over its email list, and your marketing team has consistent access to leads.

Access a Massive Audience

Of course, it’s not enough to schedule a campaign. The best email campaigns target ideal leads with segmentation. This tactic guarantees your message lands in the appropriate inboxes.

Think of it this way: Your email subscribers are a diverse bunch. The best treatment specialties for one person may be a poor fit for another. Similarly, older audiences may not be as receptive to social media links as younger clients. So, make that call-to-action link more appealing! Use your email list wisely and separate your email communications according to the recipient’s needs.

Keep in mind that a targeted drip campaign is an effective way to capture and retain new patients. The moments after that first appointment are crucial; make them stick with a positive email campaign!

3 Tips to Amplify Your Email Marketing Campaign

With that in mind, you probably want to send emails immediately!

But wait one minute! You can’t go sending emails at random. A successful email marketing strategy requires data, customer insights, and tactical planning. You’ll need more than flashy, clickable content to grab attention. So, let me help.

Take a look at your patient database.

Who’s there? Who isn’t? Who do you want to attract? These questions will define your marketing strategy.

Then, consider these three remarkable tips to ensure your email marketing efforts are a resounding success!

1. Know the Law

It’s an obvious statement, but it’s still valuable information.

Know the law before you start sending emails. You’ll need both your phone number and a valid mailing address attached to every email. You must also have appropriate disclaimers and a clear unsubscribe link.

These elements are not optional.

Failing to include any of this information will lower your sender score and decrease your deliverability. You’ll also harm your reputation with your email provider and can easily find yourself in hot legal waters. Yikes!

2. Don’t Skimp on Visuals

Once you’ve sorted out that email template, take a look at your visuals.

First and foremost, it should play nicely with any mobile device. Most modern campaigns use one-column layouts to guarantee a neat and tidy mobile view. This tech-forward approach to email design is a necessity in today’s digital landscape.

Next, use eye-catching images. You can accumulate in-house photos or find posts on social media. As they say, a picture’s worth a thousand words. One photo can convey far more basic information than a lengthy paragraph about your services. It can lead users to your landing pages and incentivize additional interactions.

If you’re in a pinch, you can always use free stock photos until you’ve accumulated some professional photography.

3. Find a Professional Marketing Partner

Alternatively, you can find a team of dedicated professionals to help you shape your marketing dreams.
