Your email address database should be your biggest asset and something that should be your core focus. With email marketing you own the audience and don't have to rely on anyone else. Having an effective email marketing strategy is what is going to set you apart from your competition
Your email list is gold, and it contains people that have permitted you to whisper in their ear whenever you like about your company’s products and services. You can send targeted emails to your ideal client who wants to hear from you and the best part is that's it's free, you don't have to pay for advertising or jump through hoops to show your message.
Email marketing is personal and you get to see exactly how each person reacts to your email campaign and what products or services they are interacting with in your campaign.

Execution: Creating elements and writing copy for your email campaign
There is an art in designing an experience that your clients consume when they sit down to enjoy the feast that you've put in front of them. If you serve up something to your audience that is not constant with the "meal" or has too much "broccoli" tucked away under the meat then you are most probably not going to have the same people sitting at your table the next time around.
Consistency is key in growing your audience and that extends to the style that your write in, how you present your newsletter, and the imagery that you use. We have been creating content for over 20 years now and can help you design your feast and have your target audience coming back for more.
Build your email campaign and testing
The pressure is on when creating a campaign and you walk that fine line of are your clients going to open the email, are they going to like what you've got, are they going to unsubscribe from your email list? You can have the perfect design and your copy editing can be on point but bringing it together in the right way is key. There are a multitude of different email platforms that your clients will be reading the email on and the design development that goes into the creating your campaign is important.
How to build an email campaign
There are a lot of different elements that you need to consider when building your campaign. We can help you or teach you these elements and maximise the effectiveness of your email marketing campaigns.
Sending and tracking your EDM
You want to be able to optimise the best time to send your emails so that you get the maximum open rates, and it correlates with what you're trying to achieve in other areas of your marketing.
There are different days of the week that have been shown to work better than others and time of day is always important, whether you make the call to catch your audience during their lunch break or give them something to sip on whilst they're enjoying their downtime after work.
Analysis of email campaign
Reviewing your campaigns and spotting the trends will help your business grow. You will be able to pinpoint what content your readers are enjoying and what content gets them to engage with your products and services.
If you run an email campaign, you want to know if it was successful and what your ROI was so that next time you know where to put more focus and time into building that part of your campaign.
Capturing Data & CRM integration with your email marketing
Your email list is what is the heart and soul of your business but it all depends on what you do with that list.
If you put something out there to someone and they interact with an element of your business, you want to be able to capture that, so that next time you have something you want to say to them you can be a couple of steps ahead of them.
This is part of your Customer Relationship Management (CRM) where you keep all your notes on the clients in one place. Your email marketing strategy must include an integration into your CRM if you want to leverage the most out of your email marketing data.
Marketing automation and automated email
When someone leaves something in their shopping cart you can send them an email to try and get them back to your website and if someone joins your email list you can send them an automated email introducing your company, letting them know what they can look forward to.
You can send an email automatically when it's their birthday, their anniversary with you or any other special criteria that you can think of.
