Did you know?
Email marketing is a valuable communication tool for content marketing.
When you mix in email content for your readers, you’re getting even more power for keeping your message consistent.
- You’re delivering valuable insights of what you offer to your prospects without directly selling to them.
It goes something like this…
Someone visits your health blog, they take a closer look at the information you’re sharing on Candida Support. She finds information that she thinks her neighbor would also find very useful. She makes a note to herself so she’ll make sure to come back.
Now, what are the chances that she’ll actually be back?
Fortunately, your health blog has a newsletter sign-up that offers some free tips on a diet that helps control Candida in exchange for her email address.
Now your reader is ready to give her information. She’s been CONVERTED from a casual reader to a prospect that wants more information from you.
- You’ll now email her consistently with ideas to continue her health and Candida exploration.
- Even sharing exciting news, more tips, or sales going on, plus giveaways to enter, and coupons, also you’ll give her information about where she can check out products to purchase.
During holidays or special events, your subscriber will receive an email from you reminding her to get her shopping done early.
BOOM! Your subscriber buys.
Now she’s CONVERTED from a prospect into a happy client.
Your new subscriber sees a transformation in her energy and health from the information she received through you and the purchases she made because you shared.
She even sends you a note that you can use as a testimonial about the results she got because of the information you gave her.
Your subscriber also included a before and after picture showing her weight loss. And starts sharing her results on social media and with her other friends offline.
She describes how she was trying to find a reason for her exhaustion and weight gain. She told everyone that she found your health blog and got on your list for more tips and information that transformed her life.
NOW others see this and realize that this may be helpful for them or a friend.
Some may head over to your health blog because they saw a social media post shared where your subscriber was highlighted.
Seeing such a wonderful change in her health and weight, they wonder, “This Candida could be a health issue for me, also.” They read about how great you take care your clients and sign up for your list. Then, start making purchases from the sites you’ve suggested.
All of this is helping you stay in front of your ideal audience as you used content to generate leads and sales.
Better still …
You’ll be sharing content that will stand out and build your authority on all of your social media platforms ~ including your email marketing.
You’re using content to generate leads and sales.
