Email Marketing

Lets sell something...

Email Marketing is used by thousands of businesses every day to promote their products and services as a low cost alternative to mainstream marketing. With no print or postage costs and no fees paid in exchange for exposure on advertisement boards, radio or TV, why wouldn't you get yourself a slice of this business?

So where do you start? - When you start to look into Email Marketing you realise that it isn't as simple as just sending out a few emails to some of your previous customers, while this could work, it will most likely have a very limited unsatisfactory result. The art of Email Marketing is to produce a dialogue between you and your clients that allows you promote your services in a way your clients want and appreciate.

Types of Email Marketing

There are three different and distinct types of emails that can be sent to your existing or potential customers, as part of your email marketing strategy:

  • Email Newsletters - Regular emails sent out to your email subscribers. Used primary to develop and maintain brand recognition and to facilitate other forms of customer interaction.
  • Dedicated Emails - One time emails sent out to a target audience, usually to promote a product or service. These emails have the best results when sent to recipients who have agreed to receive emails from you. e.g. 'New Course', 'Product Price Change', 'Limited time offer'.
  • Transactional Emails - Usually generated at important stages of a transaction between you and your customers. They are useful to keep your customers informed, reassured and up-to-date. e.g. 'Thank you For Signing Up', 'Order Confirmation', 'Your order has been Dispatched'.
