Email Marketing Done Right

by Rahimah Sultan

Email marketing is all about building trust and relationships. There are rules that have to be followed, known as the Can-Spam rules, which state that no unsolicited emails can be sent to individuals. You can Google CAN-SPAM for a list of dos and don’ts. You want your email marketing done right.

 

So, you have set up your business and you need to let the world know. Just how do you do this?

 

You set up a lead capture page (LCP), which is also known as a squeeze page or splash page, and advertise it. When people see this page and opt in they are automatically added to your list. Now you can start building a relationship with the pre-written follow-up emails in your autoresponder that are scheduled to go out automatically at specified intervals.

 

Each email gives a little bit of information about your product or service. Make them short and to the point. Talk about how your product will make their life easier, what it will do for them. Remember, your goal is to build a relationship based on trust so people will buy from you and maybe become a repeat customer. Do not sell, sell, sell in every email.

 

Although it will take commitment, work and persistence to build your list, you must do it yourself. Build your own list.

 

Do not buy lists. They are made up of people who have never heard of you or your company. Think like a customer. Would you buy from someone you have never heard of and know nothing about?

 

Put your customers first by giving them helpful information and tips before referencing your products or services. Email marketing is not a get-rich-quick solution, although it can be a fast way to reach thousands of customers.

 

Email marketing done right is all about giving your customers useful information and building trusting relationships.

Content Marketing Strategy

by Rahimah Sultan

Content marketing is the art of communicating with your customers and prospects without selling. Instead of pitching your products or services, you are delivering information that makes your buyer smarter. At the core of this content strategy is the belief that if we, as businesses, deliver consistent, ongoing valuable information to consumers, they will ultimately reward us with their business and loyalty.

 

The elements of a successful content marketing strategy are creativity, spontaneity, improvisation, and experimentation.

Writing An Effective Autoresponder Series

by Rahimah Sultan

photo from blog

 

An autoresponder is a series of email marketing messages that get sent to subscribers in the order you choose and at the times you want.

 

An autoresponder can be the welcome message a prospect receives when signing up for your free report on woodworking, a three-part series on mango dessert recipes or a 10-day email course that tells people how to declutter their homes quickly and easily.

 

You do not want to stop with the welcome email. The smart move is to create a longer series of autoresponder messages.

 

Autoresponders:

 

Allow you to continually show your best content.
Allow you to deliver the same high-value experience to every new subscriber.
Are great places to mention related offers without sounding dodgy.
Allow you to slowly build trust with your audience and make sure your new subscribers do not forget you.

 

Use your autoresponders to:

 

1) Share a bit (do not over share) about yourself and your business journey.
2) Offer tips to your subscribers that they can implement immediately to help them.
3) Ask questions of your subscribers as to what related challenges they may have or how they found your site, and have them reply to your emails.
4) Offer them a short list of resources such as blogs, books, online tools, etc. that will help them meet their goals.

 

Deliver your emails via the autoresponder function of your email marketing program.
Write the best content you can for your autoresponder. The time you put in now can continue to grow your business in the future.

 

If someone joins your email list, it’s likely he or she will also want to connect with you on his or her favorite social media platform. So, share other ways to connect with you.

 

Before you start writing, make a short outline of how many messages you want to include and how far apart they should be delivered. This outline will keep you on track as you write the entire sequence. Begin with three to five emails.

 

Once you have written your emails, queue them up in your email service provider, and then test the series to make sure everything works properly.

 

Once you have completed the above, you can send visitors to your opt-in form and start getting subscribers.

 

The autoresponder’s most important function is to take people who are curious about what you do and turn them into raving fans. Email provides you the most direct line of communication for conversion to sales.

 

Good email content deepens your relationship with your audience through effective subject line writing (which get your messages opened); your distinctive voice (which gets your messages read); and delivering quality, niche-specific content your prospect needs and shares with others (which inspires referrals and word-of-mouth).

 

These tips will help you in Writing An Effective Autoresponder Series.
