5 Easy Steps to Becoming an Email Marketer

5stepsWe’ve all know the buzz about email marketing and how cost-efficient and easy it is to do.

Sharing your value takes a lot of communication as well as applying your compelling marketing message and content.

  • E-mails are a good way to communicate your value to prospective clients and current clients.

What are the right steps for email marketing?

Have compelling emails to your list of customers and prospects that want to hear from you and have given you permission to contact them.

1. But, how do you get a list to send emails to?

To start with, write a short report to give away, to use as an incentive for people to join an email list.

  • You can’t do much email marketing unless you have email addresses of people who want to hear from you and have given you permission to contact them via email.

Building your own list of current customers, past customers, and prospects (versus buying names and addresses) is the goal.

2. Spend more time developing your email skills.

Craft an email, write it, and send it. Building up your experience.

Do you get emails from internet “gurus”? I’ll bet you do, lots of them, right?

  • Study them. Learn how they communicate. Model. And continue to grow in your skills.

Slowly but surely you’re improving your writing skills.

3. Create visibility and be on top of their mind

Email marketing, is information marketing, and it is an excellent way to reach out to your list and communicate your brilliance with them.

  • You’ve probably heard that research shows people need to hear from you 7 times on average before they buy from you. Right now, it would make sense that the number would be higher, because people see so many ads, and emails in their inbox, every single day.

4. You now are an Email Marketer! Congratulations. 🙂

But, wait…there’s more:

So you have a group of people who are passionate about your topic.

Now you can spend time and a bit of money on your own information products related to your topic.

  • And, then write some emails to send your list of subscribers to your sales page.

You continue to work on your sales message over and over until it’s really super effective and you start seeing some sales come in from your email marketing.

5. The Steps to becoming an Email marketer….

  1. Building your list of your prospective clients and current clients.
  2. Learning how to communicate your information in a compelling way.
  3. Be consistent in your email campaigns.
  4. Create and sale your product, or service.

==> Now you make a decision to block out time every day to learn, practice, and make it happen consistently.

  • Every day you chip away at learning and growing in your marketing, writing, and email marketing skills.

      Thank you Susanna for stopping by and commenting!
      Well – our abilities to improve our email list building, information marketing, and how we ‘speak’ with our community takes times, a lot of time when we do it alone. I’ve had a lot of coaches that helped me through to a great community!
