Email Marketing -  Iris Carter-Collins, Speaker and Coach

It’s imperative that you only contact people who are interested when using email promoting

It’s imperative that you only contact people who are interested when using email promoting. One of the fastest ways to destroy the trust of your customers is to spam them with unwanted email. The following tips are all designed to help you make sure the people on your email list have genuinely opted in. Ensure that your audience is targeted correctly. When you have a substantial number of readers, brainstorm ways to have them sign up friends. You should also be sure you have a subscribe link sent out in your email. This will help your existing customers send a link to their friends. After this, your base should begin to grow on its own.

TIP! Never send out unsolicited marketing emails. When you send out your emails to everyone, many people will mark them as spam.

If you plan to use emails as a marketing tool, you must first gain permission from each customer you would like to include in your campaign. If you don’t get permission first, you may get lots of spam complaints and even lose otherwise loyal customers. One great way to get people to read your direct e-mail marketing messages and newsletters is to include special offers available only to the recipients. Using email marketing in this way will give customers a return on their time for reading your emails and will most likely gain you referrals as well.

Consider giving even greater discounts to those readers who do refer to new customers. Experiment with, and evaluate different email layouts. Include the information that is most important, as well as new offers, at the very beginning of your emails. You must try different types of formats in order to determine which gives you lots of response. When you know which format works the best, stick with it. This will help your customers know what to expect from you and know where to look for the information they want to read more about.

Do not send emails to random addresses or people who have not authorized you to do so

TIP! Tailor your message to your audience. Once you have established some readers, you should then think of different ways that you can entice them to sign up their friends.

Do not send emails to random addresses or people who have not authorized you to do so. All unrequested emails are spam, whether or not that was the intention of the sender. Violating your ISP or web host’s policies can lead to major catastrophe. Create emails that contain great content. Give people useful information and don’t just spend your time only trying to sell them things. Offer special articles to your subscribers that may not be on your site. Including offers that only readers can get are also much appreciated. Also, send emails to offer bonuses and best wishes for the holidays.

Sending emails only when you want to promote a product is short-sighted

Sending emails only when you want to promote a product is short-sighted. Give different options to your customers for an effective campaign. It is a good idea to allow subscribers to select the number of emails they will receive, along with the frequency at which these emails are sent. Any information provided by the subscriber should also be at their discretion. Giving control to the subscriber will make them feel more comfortable. They will be more likely to sign up.

TIP! Try using different techniques when you are email marketing. You can read books at the library, check out blogs and join forums.

It is critical that all customers who have subscribed to your list actually want to receive your emails. If you’re bombarding uninterested parties with your uninteresting emails, there will be complaints, and you will lose business. Use the advice you have learned to target your emails to the people who want to see them.
