Email Profits Basics: Lesson 8

In the last lesson we talked about choosing the right type of
content for your emails. In this lesson we are going to go over
some simple yet effective email marketing strategies you can use
to get better results.

Email marketing is becoming extremely popular but this doesn’t
mean all business owners know how to run an effective email
marketing campaign. However, those who are well versed in the
subject of email marketing and have experiencing using popular
strategies effectively are likely to gain a huge advantage over
their competitors who do not have these skills. This lesson will
provide useful information for business owners who are hoping to
improve their sales or website traffic through effective email
marketing.

If you do not have a great deal of information about email
marketing and do not fully understand the principals involved
one of the best ways to orchestrate a truly effective email
marketing campaign is to hire a consulting firm with a proven
track record in promoting business through email marketing to
assist you in your endeavor.

Similarly, to traditional marketing such as radio, television
and print media, the popular strategies governing email
marketing are changing constantly. As a business owner you
likely already have enough to deal with trying to stay up to
date on business practices that you do not have the time, energy
or finances to also stay up to date on the latest changes in
email marketing.

For this reason, it’s certainly worthwhile to hire a
professional in the email marketing industry who can devote
himself full time to keeping up to date with the most effective
email marketing strategies and designing an email marketing
campaign for our business to help you achieve your business
related goals.

However, selecting a consultant from the many options available
can be downright overwhelming. In general, you should look for a
consultant who has a great deal of experience, a proven track
record, listens to your questions carefully, explains concepts
simply and makes your project a priority.

Another popular strategy for email marketing is to offer an
email correspondence course on a subject closely related to your
website or the products or services you offer. These
correspondence courses should include a number of short
segments, provide useful information, be of interest to your
intended audience and should also help to promote your business
in some way.

The simplest way to promote your business without having your
correspondence course deemed to be spam is to use a soft sell
approach to subtly urge readers to make a purchase or visit your
website for more information.

Publishing and distributing period courses is another example of
an email marketing strategy which can be highly effective. A
course is very similar to a course which is printed and
distributed by conventional methods such as mail delivery. The
bulk of a course should be quality content in the form of
featured lessons, short lessons containing useful tips or
product reviews. The course may also contain graphical elements.
These elements may simply be graphic designs or they may be
graphics which also serve as links. The links may direct traffic
to your website or to other websites.

Finally, your courses should contain some type of soft sell
sales approach. It’s important to not make the sales pitch
blatant as this may result in the course being considered spam.
Finally, the course should contain a call to action urging the
readers to either make a purchase or visit your website for more
information.

Regardless of the method of email marketing you opt to utilize,
one of the most important strategies is to evaluate the
effectiveness of your email marketing on a regular basis. This
is critical because elements of your email marketing campaign
which are not working should be weeded out. Likewise, elements
of your marketing campaign which are enjoying a high degree of
success should be utilized more often.

For example, if you notice there is a spike in sales or website
traffic each time you lesson a course, it might be worthwhile to
begin issuing courses more often. This type of evaluation and
feedback can turn a moderate success into a huge success.

Make sure you look for your next lesson soon. We will be talking
about combining email marketing with other types of marketing.
