What’s the best email service provider for e-commerce stores?


If you’re an e-commerce store, you’re faced with a lot of choices when it comes to email service providers. 


Our recommendation is Klaviyo. It comes with the most out-of-the-box features, it’s user-friendly, and their reporting will give you all of the numbers you need to make profitable decisions for your brand. 

As of May 2021, Klaviyo is the only email service provider we work with. If you're currently on Klaivyo or considering moving to Klaviyo, we can help.

How big of a list do I need to make money with email marketing?


There is no magic list size. 


Even with a list as small as a couple thousand, you can start to see significant increases to revenue. If you have a smaller list, don’t worry (and don’t wait).

Sending to your list regularly and experimenting with opt-in forms and offers will help you see results faster than the “let’s wait on this” method. 


Take a look at this screen shot taken just one week after implementing the starter kit with a list of just over 2,000. 



 If your list is smaller than 5000, I suggest starting with a basic flow package. As long as you're sending qualified traffic to your site, your flows will continue to rake in revenue month after month. 


What kind of results can I expect?


If you’re brand new to email marketing, we’ll begin by aiming to generate 20% of your revenue from email using a mix of basic and advanced flows. Once we hit that milestone, we’ll continue to aim higher using segmented flows, targeted messaging, and live campaigns.

Can I afford The Email Lady’s Services?


We have a package to suit any budget. 


If you’re just starting out and not yet driving traffic or converting sales, we suggest starting with one of our DIY Toolkits. These kits provide all the guidance you need to create effective and high-converting flows so you don’t miss out on the opportunity to turn visitors into paying customers as your store grows. 


As your store begins to drive additional traffic and convert sales regularly, we suggest one of our Starter Kits. These custom kits will set you up with basic and advanced flows and provide a solid base for email marketing success. 


Although results will differ from client to client, many clients experience a total of 20% of their total revenue coming from email marketing once they have set up their flows and begin sending out weekly email campaigns. Again, this number varies and there are no guarantees, but this is a good starting point to evaluate whether you will get a return on your email marketing investment. 


This number typically increases once we optimize your flows, establish a regular sending cadence, and create highly-targeted emails for your varying segments. 


Typically, email marketing is highly profitable for brands who sell physical products, who consistently drive traffic, and who are able to convert visitors on their site. 


How long does it take to see results when I first implement email marketing?


If you are already driving traffic and converting visitors, email marketing could have an immediate impact on sales. 


In particular, 3 sequences will help boost your sales almost immediately. These are all included in the full-service Starter Kit or could be built out during your first month on a monthly email management package.
