eMarketing Savvy workshop

eMarketing Savvy workshop. Mass email (eMarketing) isn’t sexy or new but for most nonprofits it can reach more people, more reliably and create more response than other communications options, including social media. Yep – better than social media.

Why the hell do Coles, QANTAS, Ticketek, Facebook and Amazon keep sending you emails? Because they work. Right now we guarantee there are improvements to be made to your eMarketing.

So why aren’t you communicating more, saving thousands of dollars on direct mail and getting to know whether anyone actually reads what you write? Could your current emails be doing more for you? Yes. A lot.


  • Why bother? Advantages, costs and other benefits.
  • Moving from Outlook to a genuine mass email system such as MailChimp.
  • Selecting an eMarketing platform such as MailChimp
  • Designing a gorgeous eNewsletter template; we’ll look at many examples.
  • Creating and building databases – we have 12 + ways to make it big.
  • Boosting your open rate – another 12 or so ways to inspire the double click.
  • Analysing statistics and making changes as a result.
  • Finding the right content and tone.
  • How often and when to send? Does time of day matter? (Hell yes.)
  • Robo-emails – what are they and how can they help you?
  • Creating serial emails.
  • Subject boxes.
  • A / B testing for better results.
  • Email as the basis for a sales funnel.
  • Tweaking your website design for maximum conversion.
  • Tricks of the trade – re-sends and killer introductory messages.
  • Lots of time for Q&A and open discussion.
