There’s nothing more frustrating than spending time and energy on an email campaign only to earn a dismal and depressing open rate.

What’s the point in stealing time out of your busy schedule to send out carefully crafted emails when no one’s going to even read them?

That would be like me writing this article and then leaving it in my Google Drive folder never to be seen by another pair of eyes. What a waste of my impressive skill and creativity!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but If no one is opening your emails there’s likely a reason (or 5) why.

This article will show you 5 reasons why your emails are not being read and how you can start your open rate on the upward climb.

Your band is an investment. You’ve probably already spent hundreds or thousands of dollars on equipment like PA systems, stands, strings, new instruments, and a plethora of other equipment, right? It’s normal to put money into something you care about and invest in something that helps pay the bills. So, just as we put money into our equipment and sound, we should also set aside money for marketing our work.

Naturally, this seems like a daunting task, as no one wants to take a gamble on marketing if the outcome is unsure, especially when labels and wealthier artists dump thousands upon thousands into their marketing. But it’s actually easier than you think. Even better, it can also be cheaper than you think.
