people to our process.
You ask, we answer.
Email marketing is a cost-effective and powerful way to reach your target audience, build relationships, and drive conversions. It can help you increase brand awareness, drive website traffic, generate leads, and promote sales and promotions. It is also a measurable and scalable marketing channel that can provide a high return on investment (ROI).
Yes, email marketing can be effective even if you have low traffic on your website when you follow the best email marketing practices. Email marketing allows you to reach out to your subscribers and customers directly in their inboxes, regardless of how much traffic your website is receiving. By crafting targeted and relevant messages, you can engage with your audience and encourage them to take action, such as making a purchase or sharing your content with their own network. Additionally, email marketing can help you build your audience and drive more traffic to your website over time.
While ads can drive traffic and generate leads, email marketing should be your top priority. Building a strong email list with basic flows and pop-ups can bring a high return on investment (ROI) and lead to long-term success.
One of the major benefits of email marketing is its high return on investment (ROI). According to research, email marketing has an average ROI of 42:1, which means that for every $1 you spend on email marketing, you can expect to earn $42 in return.
Don’t burn out your budget with ads and no email marketing. Before you run ads, make sure your email marketing is on the right track.
➡️ While freelancers may be able to work faster in some cases, an agency offers a dedicated team of experts who are focused specifically on each area of a project. This level of specialization ensures the highest level of quality, which is the ultimate goal of any project.
➡️ An agency places a strong emphasis on communication, which is crucial to a successful collaboration.
➡️ When it comes to quality, an agency has a clear advantage. It’s almost impossible for a freelancer to be an expert in all areas, including strategy, copywriting, design, and email service provider (ESP) implementation and management.
At IMPRO Email Agency, we advise against purchasing email lists and instead recommend building your own. To create an email list are different ways: lead magnets, website opt-in forms, quiz, etc. Buying email lists can result in unhappy recipients who are not familiar with your brand and can negatively impact email deliverability. Building your own email list ensures that you have engaged and interested recipients who are more likely to convert.
It is recommended to have an email list of at least 2,000 subscribers before starting to send email campaigns to ensure cost-effectiveness.
Additionally, it’s important to have a clear understanding of your email marketing goals and target audience before you start sending campaigns. Take the time to plan out your content and messaging strategy, and ensure that you have the necessary resources in place to execute your campaigns effectively. Once you have a solid foundation, you can start sending email campaigns on a regular basis to engage and nurture your subscribers.
To ensure the success of your email marketing, it’s important to follow best practices such as email delivery and email deliverability, segmenting your email list, personalizing your emails, creating engaging subject lines, using a clean and visually appealing design, and testing and analyzing your campaigns & flows. Additionally, make sure that you are compliant with email marketing regulations, such as the CAN-SPAM Act, GDPR and that you are sending emails to recipients who have given you permission to do so.
Since 2018, we have been helping e-commerce businesses grow, and, based on our 5+ years of experience in Email marketing, we have developed a checklist of vital setups that should be prepared in advance to ensure that our campaign management is efficient.
For instance, email deliverability refers to the placement of an email after it is successfully delivered to the recipient’s mail server. Good email deliverability allows your emails to land in your recipients’ main inbox (including tabbed inboxes, such as Google’s Promotions tab). Before you send the campaign, be sure that your email deliverability is on a good track.
Additionally, segmentation and list cleaning are important aspects of successful email campaign management. Segmenting your email list allows you to send targeted and relevant content to specific groups of subscribers, increasing the likelihood of engagement and conversions. List cleaning ensures that your email list is up-to-date and free from inactive or invalid email addresses, which can negatively impact your email deliverability and sender reputation.
While campaign management is the core of our services, we believe that taking care of these additional aspects will ultimately lead to better campaign performance and ROI for our clients.

The basic setup includes various aspects of email marketing, such as onboarding: ESP evaluation, migration, strategy creation & implementation, basic integration, email deliverability, list cleaning, audience segmentation, opt-in management, copy & template production, etc. and basic lifecycle flows.
These components are important for email marketing and ultimately increasing conversions and ROI. The basic lifecycle flows setup covers the vital stages of their lifecycle journey from welcome series and pop-ups to post-purchase and bounce-back emails. The full basic setup takes 3 months.
The basic lifecycle flows are crafted flows that cover all the the vital stages of their lifecycle journey. These flows help convert website traffic into loyal customers and are included in every plan.
Basic lifecycle flows are*:
Welcome series + pop-up – 5-10 emails
Abandonment cart – 4-6 emails
Browse Abandonment – 3 emails
Exit Intent – 4 emails
Post-purchase (segmentation) – 7-10 emails
Replenishment (predictive analytics) – 1-2 emails
Bounce back – 1 email
* depending on the type of the product, some of the flows will be changed to meet the brand’s needs.
At our agency, we offer advanced flows as part of our ongoing email marketing services for existing clients. These additional flows are designed to enhance your email marketing strategy and leverage your technology stack to further drive results.
Our advanced flows include custom flows that are tailored to your specific business needs. For example, if you have a loyalty or product review program, we can create 2-5 flows that will help improve the performance of that programs.
In addition to creating new flows, we also update and iterate on existing flows to ensure that they are optimized for maximum performance and are highly personalized for different segments of your audience. For instance, Abandoned cart flow (started checkout) will have an advanced conditions based on customer lifecycle, AOV, location, product preferences, etc. So, one person will get a differen emails each time with higher personalization.
With our advanced flows, you can rest assured that your email marketing strategy is always up-to-date and delivering the best results possible.
We offer two options for going live with flows, depending on your preferences:
- Quick and Incremental: This option involves gradually rolling out flows in small pieces over a period when they”re ready of up to 6 weeks. Initially, we will go live with 1-3 emails for each flow, and the remaining emails will be developed over a period of up to 12 weeks. This approach has the advantage of quickly generating sales and covering all segments of your audience.
- All-at-Once: This option involves turning on all flows at the same time and takes up to 12 weeks to complete. This option is ideal for clients who already have flows in place and want to improve the results.
We work closely with our clients to determine which option is best suited for their business needs and goals. Our goal is to ensure a smooth and seamless transition to our new flows while delivering the best possible results for your email marketing strategy.
A campaign is a completed email that is ready to be sent to your customers. It has been strategically planned, with the copy written and the design completed.
Essentially, one campaign equals one email. However, to test and improve personalization, we send the same campaign to different segments with minor but significant changes such as congratulations, offers, expiration, etc. This allows us to gather more details and statistics.
Our onboarding process takes approximately two weeks, and to start from the third week we’re ready to deploy campaign management.
Please inform your account manager and we will start crafting the campaign in advance and charge per extra campaign based on your package. If you frequently require extra campaigns, we suggest upgrading your account to ensure that our team can devote the necessary time to meet your brand’s needs.
We’re happy to offer up to three revisions for your copywriting and two for design. Any bug fixes or minor tweaks needed will be handled at no extra cost. However, if there are major changes or additions required, we will provide you with a separate quote for those. Our goal is to ensure that you’re fully satisfied with our work and that your email campaigns are successful.
Each week, the account manager provides regular updates about planning, progress, and a summary. After the first month, a dedicated team prepares a summary report that is delivered around the 5th of each month with the prior month’s statistics and data.
As an organized team, we plan our months in advance, and a new project typically begins 7-10 days after signing a contract.
The pre-onboarding process starts immediately after your confirmation that you’re ready to move forward with IMPRO Email team. So, your account manager immediately prepares a questionnaire with up to 50 questions to gain a better understanding of your business, brand, product, target audience, tone of voice, design preferences, and any specific requests you may have.
We assign a dedicated team consisting of an experienced account manager, a data-driven team lead, a professional email & graphic designer, a dedicated copywriter, and an email marketing technician.
Together, they develop and implement a personalized email & SMS marketing strategy for your brand. The account manager ensures timely delivery and updates, the strategist ensures the email marketing strategy is on track, the designer creates an eye-catching design, the copywriter personalizes content for your audience, and the email marketing technician optimizes your results.
The monthly progress plan for our email marketing services is designed to ensure that our clients receive the best possible results from email marketing. During the first month, our focus is on setting up the account and developing a tailored strategy. This involves optimizing email deliverability, copy & template production, cleaning and validating the data, segmenting the audience, and preparing content and assets for flows & campaigns. We work closely with our clients to gain a deep understanding of their business, target audience, and email marketing goals.
During the second and third months, we shift our focus to creating and executing effective email marketing campaigns and flows. Our team of experts in email copywriting, design, and technical configuration works together to develop a series of email sequences that are triggered by specific user behaviors or events. We also create and send standalone email campaigns based on a calendar of campaigns (Pro package includes campaign management from the third week).
As we progress into the fourth month and beyond, we strategically optimize our email marketing flows and campaigns to achieve even better results. We analyze data, test and tweak campaigns, and incorporate new tactics to continuously improve the email marketing strategy. Our ultimate goal is to help our clients achieve their business goals through email marketing.
We believe that long-term email marketing projects yield the best results, and we are committed to working closely with our clients throughout the process to ensure their satisfaction and success. With our monthly progress plan, our clients can be confident that their email marketing strategy is always up-to-date and delivering the best results possible.
