How to Get Started:

Guidelines and Tips for Email Marketing

1. Segment Customer Contact Email Addresses

This segmentation allows the business to be able to send "targeted, relevant messages" to the customer. Personalizing a campaign for certain types of customers (ie. frequent customers vs. one time buyers) will aid in making the customer feel special, as well as keeping their inbox clutter-free from emails that aren't relevant to that customer.

2. Make Sure Customers can Subscribe to the Emails

Email subscription is a big part of marketing. Tying together all the business' social media should make it easy for the customer to subscribe to the email newsletter, "like" the Facebook page, follow the Twitter and participate in ALL of the social media the business uses. Being able to easily access this information allows the customer to fully participate and be informed on what the company is doing.

3. Make sure Emails include the Brand

Email Marketing is marketing for the company. Therefore, by including the brand logo and using colors associated with the bran,d the customer will start to think about and recognize the business in other places outside of where the business is normally available to them. Think of how many great brands are associated with colors that become their colors.

4. Make Them Concise and Simple

People do not have time to read wordy, lengthy emails about the company's newest employees or the change from one paper company to another. Keep the information within the email simple and relevant to the customer. Include promotions or enticing things that will grab the customer's attention and make them want to read further and learn more about the company.

5. Use Promotions that Involve Multiple Consumers

By using promotions like "Bring two friends and get a meal free," the business encourages the customer to forward the email to their friends to tell them about going. This will bring more customers and more subscriptions to the email, because they will want the opportunity to have same the promotions and deals.
