Struggling to find a marketing strategy

Email Marketing - Iris Carter-Collins, Speaker and Coach

Are you struggling to find a marketing strategy that works? Marketing with email has a long and profitable history, not to mention that it’s a great way to keep in touch with customers. In the following paragraphs, you’ll find some tips that will help you use e-mail marketing effectively.

You want your email to be as personal as you possibly can. As with other types of marketing, customers will be more likely to purchase items from you if you add a personal touch. For example, if you know why they signed up to get emails from you, include that reason in your email.

Email should have one obvious message

TIP! Do not send out unsolicited emails. Messages sent to recipients who did not request them are at risk of being marked as spam.

Each email should have one obvious message. You don’t want bored customers or ones who are overwhelmed by too much content from your newsletter. Each email should have one specific focus. Customers will be more likely to read, visit your site and buy if they don’t have to sift through a lot of extra information.

Learn as much as possible about e-mail marketing from different resources. Books on the subject may be available in libraries and online. There is surely a course or workshop in your area that can help as well.

Keep your emails consistent. For every email, use the same colors and logos. Always use a legible font. After a few messages, people will start to recognize when you send an email and will pay attention. Familiarity is vital in any business, more importantly in email promoting.

TIP! If you’re embarking on an email campaign, the fact that you need permission to send people emails cannot be understated. If you do not get their permission, you will get a lot of spam complaints and perhaps lose customers altogether.

It is advisable to get permission from customers before contacting them by email. Unwanted emails are normally seen as spam and they will be deleted. You could also violate ISP’s policies by sending out a lot of emails to your customers who do not want to receive them.

When creating email marketing programs use few graphics

Use few graphics when creating email marketing programs. Some email programs may block graphics, so if your email is heavily dependent on pictures some of your audience won’t be able to read your email. Also, a lot of these email programs may just send these emails directly to the junk folder if too many graphics are used.

TIP! Make sure that everything you mail out has been proofread. Be certain that anything you send out is grammatically correct.

Ask your customers for expressed permission if you want to send them email messages. If you don’t do this, people may not trust you and that makes your business look bad. You may even be blacklisted, which really hurts your company’s credibility.

Marketing via email is a cost-effective way of promoting your company. Apply the advice given in the above article in order to cause your email marketing campaign to stick out from the rest of the competition. Continue searching for new methods of making your emails relevant to your customers.
