Emails as a Marketing Solution?

Emails as a marketing solutionWe market to attract interest, build desire for, and generate sales.

That includes email marketing as a must.

Which can be an extremely powerful and effective marketing technique for building prospect and client relationships based on value and trust.

–         Email marketing is really the foundation of your blog and information marketing.

  • If your subscribers can get benefits from your blog posts, they’ll want to receive your newest pieces of information.

Email marketing is helping you form a relationship, establish you as the expert, and your goal is to recommend products and services that will help solve their problem. And, keep your subscribers interested in staying with you because of your content and solution marketing.

But, if that’s not enough, why would you want to build a list to begin with?

–         Gathering your email list is your database of contacts. It is one your business assets.

From your list, you’ll get your targeted prospects. And, they’ve already shown an interest in your business. This is your targeted audience who has liked what they saw on your site and decided they wanted to see more and maybe even make some purchases.

–         I’ve heard many huge marketers say that the biggest mistake that they made, was not building their email list right from the beginning. Think about all the blogs you might see out there, with no enticing offer to join their list.

But how do you make sure that what you send out event gets opened?

–         Shorter subject lines get higher open rates.

–         A good subject must always be tickling the curiosity of your recipient. It must make the recipient want to open the email. A certain emotion must be ignited so you do need to be specific in the words used, to get the reaction you need. Keep in mind that the recipient scans over each subject of their e-mails received. You must grab your reader’s attention right away.

–         The more emails, the better. People always ask me if they send more than one email a week, won’t that bother their subscribers and have them unsubscribe? But the truth is the less you send, the unsubscribers will be more often.

Because they signed up for information. If you’re offering really good content, they won’t unsubscribe. And, you will still do your promotions, or affiliate offerings.

You’ve heard it a thousand times: the money’s in the list.

So how do you get people to sign up for your email newsletter?

– You’ll have an enticing free gift ready to offer. Like an ebook or just a one page report, or recipe of how to. In my case, I have the Business Savvy Kit.

– Then you have your autoresponder set up, one of the biggest and best out there that I recommend and have used for years is AWeber .

– Now you put your optin box on your blog or website (from Aweber, who has training videos) and you’ve started!

    Hi Donna,

    Great post as usual, I feel that e-mail marketing is something that is powerful because of the feeling of exclusivity that people feel when they are getting information that not everyone is getting. There is no possible way to make everyone happy so if people unsubscribe then worrying too much about it is not a good thing to do unless you are seeing a trend.

      Thank you, Jason – I like the thought of exclusivity, yes they are getting more from us and that is special – Yep at first unsubscribes bothered me – but you can’t take it personally 🙂 So glad to see you here, again!

      Yes, Nate, I agree with what you said – a bit controversial and surprising as times is fun – but you’re right, use sparingly! Thank you for stopping by 🙂

    Hi Donna,
    Email marketing is a blogger’s weapon of making sensible money on the internet. You have said it all, and I quite agree with all the listed points and advantages you mentioned.
    To be able to get readers to subscribe, what is working very well is to offer them a free gift in return. Secondly, you can also tell them that they will be able to download a book that contains information to help them if they sign up.
    I have also come to understand that to get more Email subscribers, it is a good thing to call for action by telling them to sign up for your email updates.
    Thanks for sharing.
