How do you make a newsletter?

If you want to increase subscriptions to your newsletter, it must be catchy and written in perfect English (or French)!

Here are some things to consider when producing a quality newsletter that complies with Canadian regulations.

THE LAW IN CANADA

According to Canada’s Anti-Spam Act C-28, in order for a company to send an e-mail message legally, it is mandatory to obtain the recipient’s consent, either implicitly or explicitly. In short, in order for your newsletter not to be considered spam, the person to whom it is addressed must agree and be able to easily unsubscribe.

TYPES OF NEWSLETTERS

Different types of newsletters are possible (commercial, informative, etc.). It is up to you to determine the type of content and graphic design – try different templates – that best represent your company. Your newsletter should be a reflection of you!

Measurement and monitoring of results of your email marketing campaign

Is your newsletter being read? Does it inspire your readers to take action? To evaluate the effectiveness of your email marketing, there are several measurement tools and KPIs (Key Performance Indicators). With these performance indicators, it is then possible to follow up in order to correct the situation if your efforts do not produce the expected results. Here are some important performance indicators:

  • The opening rate
  • The click-through rate (CTR)
  • The rate of deliverability
  • The churn rate
  • Click Through Rate (CTOR)
  • Reactivity rate
  • The sender score
