Business and marketing
When you are trying to market your business, it can be hard to know which marketing techniques to focus on. E-mail marketing can be a strong, fundamental part of any marketing plan. Here are some useful e-mail marketing tips to strengthen your overall marketing strategy, and to build your bottom line.
Always get permission! Unsolicited email is not welcome, and in certain cases, can get your ISP blocked. When contacting someone, always include a newsletter or an offer – this way the customer has the chance to agree to receive your messages. The last thing you want is to be branded a spammer.
The beginning and conclusion of your marketing email should include a call to action for your customers. Be clear about what you want your customer to do, and include at least two obvious links to your site. Use clear suggestions that direct your customers to the offer your email is promoting.
Use A/B testing to view the subject line. Split your email list in half and send emails to the two groups of addresses using different subject lines. This lets you know which subject lines are successful and which need some work.
You should send your emails as a plain text every once in a while instead of always sending them in HTML format. This gives things a more personal touch and helps the subscriber feel that you are trying to connect. Do not use it too much though because then you may be seen as being too unprofessional.
