1. Dress Up and Go out
Figuring out the goal and style of campaign content comes first so that language, images and offers are all tailored to pull visitors to a lead capture or purchase form – in messaging that
works for all social media pages, landing pages and emails.
2. Reasons to Believe
People need reasons to pass along and recommend content. Engaging imagery, coupons, discounts or referral programs give them that reason. Share and pin buttons everywhere keep that content moving.
3. Send it Once
In addition to mobile rendering, email template design should consider how the actual content will be repurposed as a Facebook tab and/or embedded into a blog post. Smart marketers take “create the message once and deliver it everywhere” with the click of a button, saving both time and money.
4. Safe Landings
Landing pages are where marketers ask prospects and customers to take action. They should have the same message, look and feel as the email marketing that drove the visit, and should include a prominent call to action. Shorter lead capture forms work better than longer ones. Email templates can double as landing pages to get the message out, and should then follow a schedule to automatically repost to social. Meanwhile, search engines will continue to find landing pages, social pages, and share boards for months to come. doorstep and giving the offer another chance to be seen, acted on or shared.
5. Connect Social Users to Email
Convert social network users into email subscribers by embedding an email opt-in form on social media pages, blogs and pin boards. A compelling call to action is crucial to opt-in.
