Email marketing is fast becoming the most effective method for any business to connect with both existing and potential customers. Traditional advertising methods are far from dead but the power of the simple email cannot be ignored. Printed postal mailings, billboard advertising and broadcasting all have their own merits, but not one of them can combine as many advantages as email marketing.
Email marketing has an immediacy that cannot be matched by other forms of marketing and radically reduces delays in communication. Customers’ queries can be dealt with speedily and orders processed almost instantaneously. Unlike postal mailing, there is no delay between the dispatch of a message and its receipt. It is ideal for triggering impulse buys and promoting short term offers.
But if you’re going to do email marketing, you need to do it right. An important part of email marketing is about understanding exactly who your customers and prospects are in order to get the right message across at the right time.
In contrast to a broad reaching medium aimed at everyone, like billboard, radio and television advertising, an email is personal. This is a one-to-one moment giving you the opportunity to address each customer individually. You can develop a relationship with them using your knowledge of their buying history and build loyalty in a way that has never before been possible.
Email marketing is obviously a lot cheaper and faster than traditional mail. It does away with expensive artwork, printing and mailing costs and is a lot less labour intensive than posted mail shots or telesales. At SEMSblast you will have quick access to our ready to use templates or you can create your own email campaign design in just minutes, that it can be implemented by any business, whatever the size, at a low cost. And if you find you need to make changes to improve a campaign, they can be made quickly - unlike printed or broadcast material.
One spin-off from the low cost and simplicity of email marketing is that businesses can contact customers more often. Many are taking advantage of this to send out monthly newsletters or bring attention to special offers, and it is an invaluable tool in building brand awareness.
Traditional marketing methods have been very general, one message aimed at every existing or potential consumer. Now it is possible for a business to target specific segments of its customer bank based on sales history or demographic information. This increased relevancy and efficiency can only lead to more successful marketing campaigns.
