Email Marketing to Facebook Email Addresses

February 2nd, 2011 No comments

Facebook Messages – Facebook Email Address

The internet has been rife for a few months with the news of Facebook Messaging coming up.  Facebook is not just launching an email platform but a whole new way we send messages to each other. So it integrates your emails, sms, Facebook messages from your friends etc.

Given the amount of users Facebook has, and the fact that we use Facebook to connect to most of our friends, there is no doubt that this is the next big thing when it comes to emails and messaging. This could potentially be the next hotmail or gmail.


Facebook messages is live

Facebook messages is also now live, which means that some users are starting to get their Facebook email address as well. I have just recently got mine and started to play around with it. Over the coming days and weeks, more and more people will start having their own Facebook email address. You might start seeing Facebook addresses on your email subscribers lists soon.

Email Marketing to Facebook Email Address

With the introduction of Facebook email address, which we believe is going to be the next biggest email platform, the question for all email marketers is

How do we optimise our email campaigns for Facebook email addresses?

To make sure that when we are communicating with Facebook addresses, it all displays properly, we are doing some tests with generic emails to see which ones work well and which ones don’t.

Testing the new Facebook Email Address

So here is what we are doing. We are testing all the emails to our Facebook address. We are sending a text email, a html email with a signature, an email with an attachment and finally an email from the dzineMail platform to see how they show up on Facebook messages.  Here are the results.

Text Email to Facebook

This just shows normally like any other message you get in Facebook.

Testing Normal Email to new Facebook Email Address

Testing Rich HTML with Signature to Facebook Email

Rich HTML with signature gets stripped down to just normal text. What is also a bit weird is that if you have two contacts with the same name, then the display picture might be pulled from the contacts name rather than email address.

There is an expand button which we thought would show the HTML but just came with a blank email.

Testing PDF Attachment to Facebook Email

The next stage was testing a PDF attachment to the email address. Here are the results. This worked very well.

Testing Image Attachment to Facebook Email

The next stage was testing an image attachment. There was no doubt that this was going to work very well as well.

Testing an Email Marketing Email to Facebook

So we finally come to the last test where we are seeing how a normal email marketing formatted email shows up in Facebook emails. Not to be too dramatic but the result of this could very well change how we do Email Marketing forever.

Result: so we sent out an email and we got the email with the subject line.

And we clicked on expand

So a normally formatted email marketing email doesn’t show up in Facebook.

Update 7th Feb 2011 – emails now showing in Facebook

The emails are now showing in Facebook for properly formatted email addresses.

Based on the results we have created a Email Marketing Best Practice Guide which is a PDF download.

Social Media Integrated with Email Marketing

We are now integrating the Facebook Like button and Twitter Tweet button on all of our and our clients email campaigns.  This makes it much easier to share your email campaign on Twitter and Facebook. Here is how the report works:


Allow your user to share your email to Facebook and Twitter

You can use the existing platform and use the quick links button to drop your Tweet and Facebook Like buttons anywhere on your email. This way your email subscribers can click on these links and share your email on Facebook or tweet about your email campaign.

what is in an email address? heaps – email marketing Australia

So you have an email marketing list as most companies now a days. Normally you’d be doing any of these things based on time and resources

General email marketing process

  • you send email newsletters to them regularly

  • you send ad-hoc emails during promotions
  • you look at reports and try and keep your open rates high

If you are fairly bored with repetitive emails

  • maybe you look at bounces and try and correct them
  • you might change your subject lines and try and get higher opens

If you are an Advanced email marketing user

  • you might A/B test different subject lines and content to optimise user experience
  • you might connect your emails to your analytics and read ROI from emails rather than open rates
  • you might use social media tools and connect your email newsletters to your social networks to leverage

    Knowing your email subscribers social media details

      We all know that the better we know our subscribers, the higher our open rates and higher conversion, But I doubt many people look at the existing list and try and use external tools to enrich user data in them.  With all the social media and api’s that let you collect information about users, it has come to a point where you should look at your subscriber list and get information such as

      • age groups
      • social network involvements (facebook, twitter, linkedin)
      • How involved they are in facebook, twitter, linked in

        Imagine …

      Imagine that your list that you have today of just email addresses, lying in your email marketing platform can be grouped as active facebook users, active twitter users, social media influencers, age groups, gender, location etc The way you will be able to target the list will exponentially increase your email marketing effectiveness.


      What can you do with email marketing data like this

      • send emails to facebook users asking them to join your facebook fan page
      • send special offers to twitter influencers, where if they tweet your brand, they get special offers or discounts
      • target gender specific emails on product sales
      • target age specific emails
      • target location specific emails

      Contact us to Generate demographic user information from email addresses

      If you have an email marketing platform and you have a good social media strategy, we can help you get demographic and social media involvement about your users so that you can target them better and increase relevancy

      Integrating your Social Media with your Email Marketing creates an opportunity for your email content to immediately go viral. If your content is great and it gets shared by a Social Media influencer, you could reach a huge amount of users by sending out your normal email newsletters.

      Integrating Social Media with Email Marketing to reach viral customers

      inserting links to your social media account

      • follow us on facebook to your facebook account
      • follow us on twitter to your twitter account

      This will help you grow your fan base

      allowing email subscribers to share your email newsletter on their social network

      • inserting share link to delicious (link it to the online version of your newsletter)
      • inserting share link to digg (link it to the online version of your newsletter)
