Email marketing is a great way to share your care business’ message, connect with your current and potential clients. But, it can be hard to keep coming up with fresh, interesting newsletter content each day, week, or month.
Plus, after working hard to grow your email list, it can be disappointing and frustrating when your subscribers aren’t interacting with the emails you are sending.
With these email marketing content ideas, you can keep your newsletter content strategy exciting and your subscribers will love seeing your new messages in their inboxes.
1. Getting to know us
A great thing to share on your newsletter is a little behind the scenes of your business so that your subscribers (current and potential clients) can get to know you and your USPs a little better. This personal touch may make them more willing to invest in you as a business, choose you over a competitor or perhaps if they are a current client, it may encourage them to recommend you to others.
This is a great opportunity to show members of staff, show the faces behind the brand, which may also indirectly help with recruiting new staff!
2. Case Studies and Testimonials
Including case studies and testimonials within your newsletters will act as social proof for your business.
In fact, social proof statistics show that 92% of people will trust a recommendation from a peer and 70% of people will trust a recommendation from someone they don’t even know.
Remember, both staff and clients should be giving you either written or (even better) video testimonials. They are a huge part of the decision making process for pretty much anyone paying for anything nowadays. It makes people feel comforted that someone else had a good experience and makes them think that they are likely to share that experience if they choose your care business over another.
These will also serve as a great tool for recruiting more staff.
3. Frequently Asked Questions
Answering frequently asked questions within your newsletter will be both informative and engaging. You can even debunk common myths/misconceptions when it comes to care homes or home care.
