Hubcast 187: All Things Email with HubSpot Academy's Courtney Sembler

Hubcast 187: All Things Email with HubSpot Academy's Courtney Sembler Blog Feature

Carina Duffy

HubSpot Trainer, Co-Host of the Hubcast, IMPACT+ Instructor, INBOUND Speaker, Retains 12 HubSpot Certifications

August 2nd, 2018 min read

This episode of the Hubcast is brought to you by Needls.

Screen%20Shot%202016-11-30%20at%203.07.01%20PMWe’ve got a special guest co-host today to talk about all things email - HubSpot Academy’s Courtney Sembler.

Courtney is an inbound professor specializing in email marketing and contact management. Tune in to hear more about how Courtney got to where she is, and what she's been up to lately!

Property of the Week

Sends Since Last Engagement

“The number of marketing emails that have been sent since the last engagement (open or link click). Read more here.”

If you’re using the “Don’t send to contacts with low engagement” feature, HubSpot uses this property to determine low engagement:

“A contact will be categorized as unengaged if they meet one of the following criteria:

  • Have never opened a marketing email from you and has not opened the last 11 emails you've sent them.
  • Has previously opened a marketing email from you but has not opened the last 16 emails you've sent them.”

Use this property to monitor un-engagement, and create lists for re-engagement campaigns.

HubSpot Wishlist: Tools to Manage Email Frequency

“It would be great if HubSpot could create a tool that would allow us to manage email frequency more easily. If we send too many emails to people, they will unsubscribe.

Plus, people want to feel in control of their relationship with us. Maybe they wouldn't unsubscribe if they could limit emails to once a week/month.

If we could manage email frequency more easily, we could also do more automated emails without the fear of overloading the same people.”

Vote it Up!

This is an interesting one...

(HubSpot’s suggested solution was to add criteria to a smart list that the email send date is before last week.)

This Episode’s Sponsor: Needls.

Needls. determines the perfect target audience for your Facebook and Instagram ads by monitoring social media conversations in real time.

Simply put - Needls. makes it easy for businesses to create, target, and optimize Facebook and Instagram ads.

It's the most effective way to do it if you don’t have the marketing knowledge required to excel at it - and even if you do have the knowledge, we beat out the vast majority of performance marketers on Facebook with respect to all the key metrics Facebook tracks - conversions, CTR, CPC, CPM, etc.

At only $100/m plus your ads budget, Needls. makes their service attainable for any small business owner looking to grow their business.
