The Client

Daily Maverick is one of South Africa’s most stimulating free-to air high-end online publications with a unique blend of news, information, expert analysis and opinion. Their main focus is quality reporting told in a unique writing style and is known best as a 100% original content publisher. Their readers largely consist of decision-makers in business, government and entrepreneurs.

 

How does Daily Maverick utilise Email Marketing?

The objective of Daily Maverick’s email marketing strategy is to:

 

 

Statistics show that 74% of South African email users only subscribe to newsletters that have relevant, expert and exclusive content. With this in mind Daily Maverick sends out the “First Thing” email every weekday morning. The email will tell you what happened while you were sleeping, giving subscribers a heads-up on upcoming events for the day as well as access to selected articles on Daily Maverick’s website.

 

Quality signups and readership loyalty are the key drivers behind Daily Maverick’s implementation of subscription forms. Daily Maverick builds their database by making use of online subscriptions where subscribers consent to receive email communications.

 

Daily Maverick makes use of Everlytic’s double opt-in subscription forms to ensure a quality database of their most interested and active subscribers. Double opt-in is the process of sending a confirmation email following an opt-in request. The confirmation email requires the subscriber to confirm their subscription by clicking on a link within the confirmation email. Once subscribers have clicked on the link they will be considered confirmed and will start receiving the “First Thing” email.

 

Expectations are set upfront when subscribers signup for the “First Thing” email. They are informed about the following:

 

Benefits of Subscribing: Daily Maverick outlines the value of opting in by focusing on subscriber benefits with access to exclusive content
Content: The type of communication subscribers will receive
Frequency: “First Thing” newsletter is sent every weekday morning
Preview: A preview of the most recent “First Thing” email is included as an example of what subscribers can expect and what they’re opting into.

 

To boost subscriptions, Daily Maverick ensures that their email communications remain relevant at all times.
