EMAILS ASKING FOR FEEDBACK
Useful for: Providing an opportunity for your participants to give feedback after your workshop, so you can make changes for future participants. Giving out a survey or comment card to your trainees via email gives them an opportunity to easily communicate their feedback in a less direct way – which some may be more comfortable with. Keep forms short and simple in length and tone, directly ask for general comments in an email reply or use a survey platform like Survey Monkey and provide a link to a survey.
Subject: Let us know how we did
You are receiving this email because you have recently participated in the (Name of Course) Workshop.
Thank you for participating in this training, I hope it was informative and helps you work towards meeting your organizational goals.
As a trainer, feedback from participants like you is very important to me. I would really appreciate you taking the time to let me know what you thought of the training.

OTHER TIPS FOR EMAILING CLIENTS AND PROSPECTS
So you have your templates for your emails, now what? Make sure you customize your templates to your needs and optimize your marketing emails with these tips:
PROVIDE A CALL TO ACTION
A call to action is a step your readers should want to take after reading your email. Your email copy should inspire whatever action you would like them to make, whether it is registering for a course, providing feedback, or something else. Having a clear call to action on your emails will ensure that they have a purpose and warrant space in your recipient’s inbox. When sending an email to clients, always ask yourself, what is the point? Your “why” should be reflected in your call to action. Your build up to it can be more detailed, but your call to action should be clear and concise.
FOLLOW REGULATIONS REGARDING MARKETING EMAILS
If you use emails in your business, it is crucial you understand and comply with the CAN-SPAM Act. Make sure you review the email spam laws in your region. The laws from the CAN-SPAM Act are established and enforced by the Federal Trade Commission, and protect consumers from spam in their inbox. Be sure to regularly review CAN-SPAM laws to ensure you are following the rules, such as providing a way for your recipients to opt out of receiving your emails. This should be presented as a link somewhere visible in your email. While it may feel disheartening to see people opting out of your emails, it is highly beneficial to do this in the long run because it optimizes your open rates and reduces the amount of people marking your emails as spam.
Consider this: is an email with your name in the body/subject line more or less likely to grab your attention? I would be willing to guess that the former is true. People are naturally inclined to be drawn to messaging and communication that is directed toward them. Having personalized emails may be intimidating at first, but there are many ways to easily automate your personalization for your emails through email marketing software such as Constant Contact.
As someone marketing a service like corporate training, tracking your analytics is very important to measuring the success of your emails and adjusting them accordingly. The most important stats to review are your open rates and click rates to see how many people are actually interacting with your emails. By paying attention to your data, you can see what messaging works and what doesn’t, ensuring you have more success in your future marketing emails.
We hope these templates and tips for email marketing your training workshops will help you build a strong clientele. Get a head start on your corporate training content today with our Workshop Training Library.
