    A prospect’s email address is a precious commodity.

    With a prospect’s email address, it’s all systems go to start engaging them to become a qualified lead. 

    The Value of Lead Nurturing Through Email Engagement

    Lead nurturing emails are a great way to connect on a 1-on-1 level with a prospect. Buyers are still amenable to emails -- 60% say marketing emails guided them to make a purchase.

    The Do’s and Don'ts of Email Lead Nurturing in Healthcare Tech 

    Nurturing leads through emails requires a certain amount of finesse to keep a prospect engaged and elicit a response. There’s a fine line to walk between keeping exchanges valuable and relevant to downright annoying. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

    The Do’s

    • Be helpful
    • Be concise and direct
    • Be friendly
    • Invite further conversation
    • Be a resource
    • Use personalization

    The Don'ts:

    • Be pushy or sales-y 
    • Inundate inboxes 
    • Provide unhelpful information 
    • Send emails from a generic address, e.g. info@yourcompany.com

    Pro Tip: Be aware, prospects are generally more receptive to lead nurturing emails when they’ve opted in to receive them. If you’re sending emails to contacts on an email list you purchased, don’t expect the same level of engagement.
