Email Marketing

Let's dissect a good specimen and learn from it

Most wineries have been utilizing email marketing for a very long time, as part of their mailing list or membership program (Club/Release/Offering methods alike).

Each email is an opportunity to accomplish several goals:

  • generate direct sales on the website: new releases, big sales, Cyber Monday, etc.
  • generate traffic to the tasting room
  • release-related: either notice of a Club shipment or opening of an offering period for a release
  • increase customer loyalty - reduce attrition
  • generate RSVP's for an event
  • announce news: great score, upcoming events, winemaking updates
  • brand building

It's tough to hit on multiple goals without getting lengthy. Brevity is key: the likelihood that someone will read something is inversely proportional to its word-count.

A few days ago, I received an email from the good folks at Impossible Foods, and I felt we could all learn something from it. So I tacked on my comments and I present you right below, the dissection of a solid email.
I liked doing this so much, I might start doing it with winery emails next.

Note: Leyack Group is not associated with Impossible Foods in any way (although we do like their burgers)

  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I
    could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some
    time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with
    something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.

    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    1. Hi,

      I’m not very active on Twitter and therefore, haven’t found a need to connect this blog with my Twitter account automatically.
      If you find one, let me know!

  2. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally
    educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about.

    I’m very happy I found this in my search for something concerning this.

  3. We absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post’s
    to be what precisely I’m looking for. can you offer guest writers to
    write content for you personally? I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or
    elaborating on most of the subjects you write related to here.
    Again, awesome web log!
