No more CTA
Most businesses often try to convert customers. They often suggest to put ‘a call to action’ element in the email. However, you can try the opposite of it. Do not try to convert your customers. Many businesses often go overboard with trying to convert customers. However, the effect can be the opposite of what expected. Instead of being drawn, customers may feel suffocated or pressured. You can try being less. Choose simple approach to engage your customers. Focus on what your brand is good at and make it the best point to show your customers.
Build secret society to build the hype
You can also try building a secret society to build the hype of your brand awareness. Get someone right to endorse your brand. Mega influencers might not be accessible for your brand but you can approach another person who have powerful influence.

Choose the right influencers who have their ideas aligned with your businesses value. So they can spread the value with their own followers.
