Dos and Don’ts of Communicating with Subscribers

A subscription billing model gives businesses the benefits of reduced customer churn,

due to the nature of the recurring billing process. However, to maximize the benefits

of subscription billing, companies need to establish solid communication processes. Here

are some dos and don'ts of communicating with subscription customers:

Do use email

There are many channels companies can use to communicate with customers, but email

is the best choice. Why? Because it's what customers prefer. According to

MarketingSherpa, 72 percent of customers prefer email as their primary means of

staying in touch with a brand. On the other hand, slightly less than 50 percent enjoy

receiving snail mail from companies, so it might be wise to mix it up once a while.

Do reinforce value

Consistent communications with customers help businesses continue to sell the value of

their services. Companies should reinforce the benefits of the service in every email they

send. This can take the form of helpful emails that highlight product features customers

may not be aware of. It could also be news of updates that improve functionality, or other

content that would simply be useful to your user base.

Do personalize messages and promotions

Use the data you have about customers to personalize their experiences. Send loyal

subscribers promotions and low-priced upgrades to increase retention. Take a look at

how individual subscribers use your platform and use this information to send targeted

offers. If you don't take advantage of this data, you lose the opportunity to increase

conversions and revenue.

Don't send too many messages

Customers have a love/hate relationship with email. They enjoy receiving updates from

businesses, but if they receive too many, they will unsubscribe and you will lose the

opportunity to engage with them. Strike the right balance with your communication

frequency. You may also want to segment your email list depending on user behaviors.

Some customers will be open to daily emails, others won't be. Divvy up your list based

on how individual subscribers respond.

Don't make it hard to unsubscribe

Even if you do everything right, you're going to lose a few readers now and then. Making

it hard for customers to unsubscribe will leave a bad taste in their mouth, which will make

them less likely to return. Make sure there's an unsubscribe link at the bottom of

messages and that it doesn't take too many steps to complete this task.

Don't be boring

Every message is an opportunity for engagement, from transactional messages to

newsletters. Each email presents a chance to get customers excited about your

products. Try to use colorful language and provide helpful information in every message.

The more interesting your communications are, the more likely you are to hold onto

subscribers.

Communicating with subscribers helps businesses increase the lifetime value of their

customer base and retain customers for longer periods of time. An email marketing

program is a great way to stay in touch, but it's important to make the most of every

message.
