Are you a business owner actively utilizing emails in the marketing strategy? I am pretty sure you dread the thought of your email marketer or campaign manager going on a vacation. On the other side, if you are an email marketer, you are scared to approach your boss even for a single leave.

So, what can you do to enjoy a vacation without worrying about the dependencies? The best way to make sure that your absence does not hamper any of the email marketing endeavors is to GET ORGANIZED.

Let’s learn how to make your email marketing processes more efficient and time saving.

1.Be proactive

Study your email metrics thoroughly and plan your strategy well in advance so that you can rise above mediocrity and create better converting email campaigns. Have an email marketing calendar handy so that you know the activities that need to be taken care of, before deployment. BTW, have you got your holiday email calendar ready for this year?

2.Stay prepared for retail holidays and seasonality of your products

This is a valuable tip especially for ecommerce stores and retail business owners. More often than not, email marketers tend to draft the Christmas email right before they are supposed to close the blinds, pull down the shutter, and leave for the winter holidays. Taking into account the enormous potential for conversions in these occasions, it is imperative that you have enough time to get creative and plan something out of the box.

3.Adopt an omnichannel approach

Social advertising, content marketing, and emails should be incorporated together in your marketing efforts. Once you have an email marketing calendar in place, plan the related content resources and social ads.

According to a study, a leading retailer in the United States targeted 925000 subscribers with their emails and Facebook ads. It was found that email subscribers who received both were 22% more likely to complete the purchase rather than the ones who received just the emails.

Create an entire strategy that revolves around this idea and see how your email conversions skyrocket.

4.ALWAYS – Have an error management plan

To err is human!


You never know when you face a personalization blunder or some other human error. Therefore, it is important to have an email template in place that helps you to make up for the blooper.

Look at the example below to get some inspiration.

Rather than apologizing, you can even give a funny twist (with a cute hero image) to the entire episode if it matches your brand personality. See the email below.

5.Streamline your approval process

Most of the time, the approval process for email campaigns gets in the way of timely deployment of the email campaigns. If you want to enjoy a vacation without the baggage of work responsibilities, streamline the entire process starting from strategizing the emails to approval.
