▶️ VIDEO TUTORIAL: How to write your 3-part email drip sequence with CopyAI

What is an email drip sequence?

A drip sequence is an automatic series of emails sent to your subscribers over a period of days, weeks, or months. They’re great for maintaining and nurturing relationships with new customers, increasing repeat purchases, and encouraging referrals. But what's not to like?

Drip email sequences are a great way to build relationships with new customers, creating a reliable sales channel. Drip email sequences tell your story, gradually increasing in value for the customer, and eventually promoting your products.

The goal of your email drip sequence:

  • Keep their attention
  • Spark their interest
  • Build up desire
  • Create an emotional connection
  • Demonstrate that you can solve their problem
  • Move your lead into action

Types of content you can include in your email drip sequence:

  1. Information - Welcome, updates, news
  2. Education - Case studies, facts, resources
  3. Connection - Stories, Q&A, empathy
  4. Promotion - Specials, freebies, invitations

Ready to Write Your Own 3-Part Email Drip Sequence?

👉 Preparation: Write a great input in CopyAI

In this example, we will write an email drip sequence for Marvel, a blog writing service for startups.

Here is an example of a good input for the AI:

This input clearly explains the product, who it's for, and how it works. One way to make it even better would be to include a sentence describing the benefits of the service and why it matters. Example: "This will help you rank on Google and attract more customers."

Steps to write your input:

  1. Decide what your goal is for your emails. What action do you want them to take at the end of each email?
  2. Write a short description of your business and specific offer using the Product Description tool.
  3. Get clear on the unique selling points of your offer. You can use the Feature-Advantage-Benefits tool. List out 3-5 unique selling points that you can highlight in your marketing.
  4. Get specific on who your audience is. Test this out using the Target Audience tool.

👉 Email #1: Your "Welcome" Email

Send this out immediately after they subscribe to your email list.

Run your input through the "Welcome Email" tool.

This is the first email they get after taking an action. You can use the Welcome Email tool to get started.

  • This email should give them a quick overview of what you do and why it matters. The Product Description tool can help with this.
  • Explain the problem that you solve and the mission of your company. The Brand Mission tool can help with this.
  • Include some social proof using the Social Proof tool. This will increase trust and credibility.
  • Add a few bullet points to list out the key benefits that you provide.
  • End the email with a strong conclusion. Tools you can use to create a strong conclusion/call to action:
    Blog Conclusion
    Call to action

The Result:

Email #1: What is Marvel? — Welcome Email

Email #2: The value of blogging — Educational Email

Hey {{first_name}}!

If you’re starting a business, one of the most important things you can do, even before you have a product, is start a blog. A blog is a great way to build credibility and relationships with potential customers and partners.

With Marvel, it’s fast and easy to set up, so there’s no reason not to.

If you’re still not sold on the value of company blogs, here are three crucial reasons why blogging should be an important part of your startup strategy:

1. Blogging helps you get attention for your product launch.
2. Blogging establishes your thought leadership in the industry.
3. Blogging builds relationship capital with your target audience.

It’s time to stop thinking of blogging as an extra part of your business model, and start thinking of it as a necessary tool for getting your startup off the ground.

Marvel at how easy it is, with Marvel. 😜
