Email marketing… seems to be an ideal way of reaching a wide consumer base. Emails can be used to talk about a new product or service not only to new potential customers but to existing customers as well as you would like to reaffirm their loyalty. What more you can also add advertisements in emails as well.
Sending emails is relatively cheaper option than using regular mail option too. With email marketing software easily available, you can send a huge number of mails within short time. Additionally, you can track the status of the emails sent by you as whether than have been replied to, delivered as spam, read or simply lying unread in the mail box. This helps in knowing the feed back of your email too.
Importantly, marketing strategy lies in the content of the content of the email. It makes sense to reach out to your customers in a friendly way, better still talk of a daily mundane issue which could be a daily problem faced by your customers to which you promise a wonderful and magical solution. It would be best if your mail chats with them on a one to one basis as if you really do understand the issue and are assuring them a sure shot remedy to their issues.
Meanwhile if you have new service or product to sell, offer them it in the most attractive and appealing style that they surely do spend time going through the email or your website. Better still they should respond to the email in your positive way…. If in touch with previous customers being slightly more personal helps….it can go a long way in building loyalty and enhanced customer relationship.
All this works if your mailing list mostly targets personal email addresses. This is important when a user reads through his or her personal mailbox; the individual is usually doing a regular run through of the mails received while on a look out for other diverting options as well. Thus do make sure your email and its subject line are catch enough to catch attention and a click on it as well!!
But if you are selling a business product or service and targeting corporate email ids, you definitely need to be much formal in presentation and service while prompt in responding to emails as well in case of interest evinced regarding your product or service.
Email marketing can definitely work and show positive results if the entire campaign has been well thought of and presented and don’t miss on the follow up part …. it is perhaps the most crucial one….
