Email Marketing: How To Market Effectively Without Becoming SPAM

Email Marketing: How To Market Effectively Without Becoming SPAM

Before marketing with email, be sure that you know what you are doing. Eluding junk mail filters and making sure your messages are actually read are critical tasks, but are there ways to enhance the effectiveness of your communications? Keep reading if you want to get the most useful tips around!

Review some real-life spam for pointers on what you should never do. Get a free email address, post your new email address in various places on the Internet, and it won’t be long before your inbox is jammed with spam. Note what is done wrong in those emails, and avoid making those mistakes in your email campaigns. Take measures so your emails look distinct from spam.

There is no quicker and more personal way to reach your audience than through email. When you communicate by email, make sure your email is easy to read by being brief, and staying on topic. People likely won’t read a large 500 or 1000 word essay about packaging or some other aspect of your business. Provide links to your web site so your customers can get the details there.

It may sound obvious, but it is very important to ensure that you store correct email addresses. It would be a waste of time to have to find the correct email address and resend your emails. Doing so is a time waster!

Use the subscription information that you have to personalize your customer’s shopping time. Use the customer information from the subscription to auto-fill purchasing forms. This eases the sales process and makes them more likely to buy.

For maximum effect, it is advisable to offer many options to your email marketing customers. Subscribers should have the option to select how many emails they want to get, when they get them and how much information they want to give. The greater amount of control that your customers have over this, the more comfort they will experience.

Use an appealing, personal style as much as you can in your email messages. As in many businesses, people like a personal touch. They will do business with a person they feel friendly toward. For instance, if you are aware of the reason that the person decided to join your email list, mention that reason when you write the email.

Always make sure that your emails contain a way for people to unsubscribe or opt out from your mailings. Certain emails cost money, even though it may be a small amount. You’ll also damage your reputation, causing your profits to reduce and potential backlash such as appearing on an email blacklist.

Use a personal tone to relay your messages in email marketing. If messages are impersonal, they will not have a positive response. Having the messages come from a prominent figure in your company, such as a CEO or President, will make a stronger impression on your customers.

A marketing email should be short. You should use direct language that gets right to the point. This signals to your readers that you value their time. If your message is brief, your readers are also more likely to read the entire thing. This can be important since emails often contain important information, even at the very end of the text.

Make sure you build and follow a strategy. Having said that, you should ensure that this is with the correct customers. Otherwise, it won’t matter all that much. Wasting persistence on an uninterested audience not only is a waste of your time, but it will also annoy people.

Proofread anything you send out via email. All correspondence should be completely coherent and error-free. Before you send the message, test the layout of the email so you can ensure everything shows up as intended. Also, check any links you include in the email to ensure they work.

Set up your data entry to include subscriber birthdate information and send a message of celebration. This process can be done automatically and will easily get your good wishes to your subscriber on their special day. You may also consider including a special discount good for a week or so after their special day.

A great way to get clients to look forward to your emails is to include a coupon or other special offer in them. Include a link to the offer, so the recipient can take immediate advantage. Include a final message that highlights the money saving benefits of following the link to your site.

Using a double opt in strategy for your email marketing strategy is the best way to see if your customer is truly interested. This might seem difficult, but it will ensure that those are customers who want to get your emails. As a result, you are less likely to get in trouble in the future.

These tips can be used to turn spammy emails into spectacular work! You can improve your bottom line more quickly with this solid advice on email marketing in any running campaign or future project that your have in mind.

Secrets of Online Marketing #3

Article writing and News Releases are the topics of the third in my series of posts about how I market on the internet so that you are not stuck with no prospects like you have been in the past.    So read on and learn some of my secrets learned from my experience working online.

The Article Writing is related to blogging as some of your blogs can be expanded upon then recycled as articles and some of your longer blogs can be recycled as articles.

The format that is well accepted as a reliable article source that has wide readership is www.Ezine.com   They do have rules about the type of content and what self promotion they will accept in the article. You can put a link in an article on your blog provided the blog post is 90% informational!

The links that I have provided in the past for images to use on blogs may be of assistance to getting pictures into your article face page.  Speaking of face pages: our face is always a good thing to promote. No, I’m not kidding get a good quality head shot picture of yourself!  It should be only head and shoulders and just a little more of you.  That way folks can actually see your face well [that’s why they call it a head shot.] and feel that they are getting to know you.  These head shots can be used with some of your ads as well as your blog as well as other places.  You must be smiling, no one relates in a positive way to a scowling face!  You want to look friendly and helpful and reliable – so dress for it and put your best face forward.

Ideas for article topics.  Remember that list of keywords, I suggested you investigate & save?  Well they can help you write articles also.  You can take one of those keywords and google for sites or articles that show up with those keywords.

  • You can use any of the keywords or long tailed key word phrases to spark an idea for an article that is just your own.
  • You can do more research and expand on someone’s article and publish your own.
  • You can review a product:  Pros & Cons type article about any topic or product. {Be careful not to create liable though.]  Just use product advertisement info like product 123 had X & Z and this other product has X & Y but not Z.  This would be of benefit to readers who might have specific needs in a product.
  • Another type of Comparison articles could be the top ten home based business – then list what they are and the pros and cons from a variety of views.  Keep it non-company specific like franchises in general not a specifically named one.
  • Folks love to know “How To” all sorts of things.  Pick one that relates to your business or business development in general.  Even an article with the step by step details on how to do a hyper-link in an email or a blog or article could be of interest to people just getting started in online business.

 

 

The second tip is to Do a News Release.  Something special happen to you in your business, specific accomplishment?  Yell it out to everyone in a press release.  You can share the PR link with your social media or on your blog.  www.24-7pressrelease.com     Is a good press release site to use.

Ideas for press releases:

  • Just joined a new online company?
  • Just completed a special training with flying colors?
  • Just got back from your companies conference?  What you learned that was special?  Were you honored for something special?  Did you get too meet a marketing gruru while you were there [and what you learned or what impressed you about this meeting.]

You get the idea – there are newsworthy things to share –

So toot your own horn and increase your credibility as an expert.

Secrets of Working Online #5.

Pay Per Click [PPC} and Autoresponder Systems  are the focus of this last one in my series of posts about how I market on the internet so that you are not stuck with no prospects like you have been in the past.    So read on and learn some of my secrets learned from my experience working online.

In the first area: The concept of pay per click advertisements is similar to the free advertisement information. 

  • There is a restriction on number of characters in each section of the advertisement.
  • You must have a catchy header to get folks to read on and something to pique their interest in the body.
  • The job of the advertisement is NOT to sell but to get folks to click to your capture page.
  • It is the job of the capture page [your own design or one sponsored by your company] to get folks to provide their contact information and to click to receive their free what ever.
  • The page they go to after the capture page will be the one with the free offer [webinar or material or book] there is opportunity when delivering those free items to sell your product or related ones.

When using pay per click you want to make sure you are NOT using pay per impression.

  • An impression is anytime that your advertisement is shown regardless of clicks.  Pay Per impression is very expensive as it is easy to rack up thousands of impressions with NO resulting clicks.
  • You only want to pay for clicks.
  • There is some controversy about using search vs content advertisements.  I use both.  Search advertisements will show up when a person uses your keywords in their search engine.  Content advertisements will show up next to or on the same page with articles that people are searching for information about.  Content ads show up on article pages with keywords similar to the ones in your ads.  Remember both use keywords so take time to build good lists.
  • The exception to pay per click is better than pay per impression might be if you have such a narrow focused niche that only those folks would see it.  This is a rather advanced technique for Social Media Advertising and not for beginners.

Regarding bidding on keywords for your pay per click make sure you bid enough that you are going to show up on “above the fold placement” or the top half of page one of the search.  Most searchers do not scroll down to the bottom of the first page or move on to second or third etc pages.  Mind your budget though.

Watch your ad network for the statistics.

  • Are any of your keywords not showing many clicks?  Might want to put that keyword on pause.
  • Do note which keywords are working and in which type [search vs content].  If any are not producing well take time to evaluate why.  You may want to pause them, revise them or just pause and scrap them.
  • Are you showing up high on the page and still not getting clicks?  Make sure your headline is catchy but not kinkey and that your copy is designed to pique interest.
  • Getting lots of clicks and hardly any follow up to your capture page – people not signing up?  It might be that your ad is not congruent with your capture page.  Make sure they match in wording and theme.
  • Getting folks providing contact information but not going further into the marketing process?  Make sure your landing page is congruent with your capture page as well as your landing page and advertisement.
  • If a person clicks through an ad and the capture page does not look like an extension of the ad – you lost them.  If the landing page does not look like an extension of the information on the capture page – you lost them.  If your follow-up to the landing page does not relate to the landing page – you lost them.
  •  Congruent – Congruent – Congruent!!!

Each Ad Network will have its own pricing and way of presenting their information.

  • Some networks allow you to schedule your ad for certain geographics only, certain days or times only.  These features can be helpful to budget your ad money and keep it spread out.
  • Don’t forget that some of the social media have their own Pay Per Click Programs.  Check them out to see what they have to offer.
  • Comment on this blog to request an extensive list of Ad Networks for you to look over and explore to find the right match for your business and your budget. I’ll send it to you free, no obligation!

The second area of information is regarding Autoresponder systems.  If you are new to online marketing you may wonder why you would need one.  After all you can copy and paste emails to respond to folks who give you their contact information right?

  • Well the joy of an autoresponder system is that it can be programmed to send 1st response immediately after the lead sends you their contact information.  Are you going to watch your inbox 24/7?  Probably not.
  • Also follow up letters or information may be promised to those who opt-in to your promotion.  Do you want to keep track of each person and what has been sent to each person so they get what you promised?  Definitely not – especially as your list grows.
  • And growing your list is what you want.
  • You can separate your list by specific catagories to facilitate product related follow-ups.
  • Having an autoresponder allows you to send a special broadcast to all should you have a special offer or bit of information to share.  Want to do that manually when you get thousands in your lists?  Most Definitely not.
  • Although there are many autoresponder systems available I do recommend Awebber for folks just getting started with list building and email notifications.  The reason is their presentation is very straight forward, not too teckie for the beginner, but has a lot of pops & whistles that the experienced marketer wants.
  • Awebber also has an excellent support system to help you figure out anything that is not clear.  Here is a link to check out what they have to offer.  http://aweber.com/?387426  [Hint if you have been to Awebber site before clear your cookies before using this link.  This link provides information about services that are newly posted.]

Happy Marketing and Growing Your Own Business.

1st of Four Global Trends – Economy & Employment

Recently I shared with you information from Jay Kubassek information about 4 global trends happening right now that are poised to help you create an Internet Lifestyle.

Today I will continue sharing information from him  and talk about the first trend…
The First Trend:

Massive long term shift towards buying online continues [15% Year-Over-Year-Increase in Online Spending]
Overall, 10 million people bought online on Cyber Monday, representing the first time
on record that threshold has been reached in a single day. The average online buyer
conducted 1.9 online transactions on Cyber Monday for a total of nearly
$125 in spending.

November 28, 2011 was a new record in online spending according to comscore.com, the
global leader in digital business analytics. In fact for the first time in 2011, there
were three consecutive days with over $1B in online spending. This is a whopping
year over year increase of 15%

ComScore.com, a leader in measuring the digital world, recently reported holiday season retail e-commerce spending for the 2011 holiday season, marking a 15-percent increase over 2010.

This includes November 28, (aka Cyber Monday,) which became the heaviest online spending day on record at $1.25 billion. Tuesday, November 29 reached $1.12 billion, while Wednesday, November 30 reached $1.03 billion.

These three billion dollar spending days currently rank as three of the four heaviest
online spending days in history.

The Result?

People are now perfectly comfortable buying their books, clothes, flowers, flights, and
everything in between online and there is no reason to believe this trend will slow down.

Online advertising projections, an indication of how much businesses are expected to spend is projected to increase 14.4 percent this year.

The trending info comes from eMarketer.com CEO Geoff Ramsey, a noted authority in the online space.

This surge of billions and billions of online spending being transferred from brick and
mortar stores to the net has created an incredible opportunity for online
businesses.

More on the next trend next time.
