Now let’s talk about email marketing audits.We touched on that subject in the last post, but we want to delve a little deeper.

It’s to our advantage to check out everything we are doing to make sure that we are making the most of our time. So why in the world are we spending so much time on email funnels, audits, and such?

Let’s take a look.

Email marketing audits are about reviewing everything it takes to create your email marketing campaign – from developing your goals to reviewing your content creation process. They also include identifying your strengths and weaknesses so that you can build an actionable plan for continuous improvement. You want to improve your conversions and make a better connection with your audience through email marketing.

The following are four important benefits from conducting email marketing audits:

Your Audits Can Improve ROI (Return on Investment)

Return on investment (ROI) is the most important metric when keeping track of any marketing strategy. If your return is low or less than what you put in, it is not worth your time or investment. Meaning adopting strategies that provide a high return on investment are where you should spend most of your time.

As it turns out, email marketing should be your top marketing priority since it converts more sales than social media and gives you as much as forty-eight dollars back for every one dollar you spend.

Your Audits Can Identify Winning Content or Strengths

Knowing your brand’s strengths and weaknesses is crucial to improving your content and in increasing your engagement with your readers. Your weaknesses are red flags, or indicators, that tell you what you need to do to better engage and connect with your audience. Your strengths can be used to improve your weak points.

Your Audits Can Highlight Marketing Holes or Weaknesses

Highlighting your weaknesses is a strength within itself, and vital to running a successful business. Of course, business is never perfect. You have to get used to that fact.

It is a roller coaster which requires constant evaluation and improvement to maintain your speed and stay on track. However, when things aren’t going well and you know exactly what to fix, you can make the fix and keep running smoothly.

Your Audits Help You Optimize Your Company Mission and Values

A valuable benefit of email marketing includes spreading brand awareness, authority, and credibility. These three factors are needed to convert your readers into loyal customers.

First, through email auditing, you can keep your message more consistent and ensure you provide the value your readers expect. Keeping a consistent message brings trust.

The more your readers trust you and value your authority, the more likely they are to make a purchase and become loyal followers.

These four benefits are significant.

By routinely performing marketing audits you are perfecting your ability as a marketer. Continuously tracking your results and committing to improvement are essential factors for a successful business.

You come away with a better understanding of your audience and a successful,  fully optimized email marketing campaign.
