Whichever type of email you are creating, these 8 tips compiled by Clevertap are essential in maximizing interaction with your emails, including conversions for sales. With more than 2 in 3 emails being opened on mobile devices,  there is no excuse for B2B email marketing that doesn’t follow these rules.

2. Draw them in with text that makes the offer clear and compelling.

3. Personalize! Just including a first name, either in the subject line or as a greeting in the body of the email, has been shown to increase click-through rates from 5.8 percent to 7 percent.

4. Focus on just one call-to-action.

5.Clear out the clutter.

6. Maximize readability by keep copy concise.

7.Test! Testing can not only ensure your emails are readable on various devices and apps, but also ensure they don’t fall into the spam trap.
