abbeyxty: Although email marketing is not a brand new strategy, it is still a powerful and often overlooked tool for building and retaining your customer base. Even though email marketing has been used for some time now, it hasn't gotten old. New techniques and strategies are constantly evolving to keep marketing emails fresh and effective. Read on for tips on how you can use email marketing to grow your business.Always get permission! Unsolicited email is not welcome, and in certain cases, can get your ISP blocked. When contacting someone, always include a newsletter or an offer - this way the customer has the chance to agree to receive your messages. The last thing you want is to be branded a spammer.Continue offering incentives to customers after they sign up for your email list. For example, give customers a 10 percent discount if they remain on your email list for a month. This keeps customers from losing interest in your marketing materials and unsubscribing or deleting your emails after just a couple of newsletters.To use email marketing to build confidence in your company and products, avoid turning your emails into gimmicks. Don't tarnish the professionalism of your image by using irritating tactics like writing all in caps or incorporating symbols like dollar signs. Most importantly, never talk down to your customers or make grossly exaggerated promises about your products.Email is a great marketing tool, but it is not an arena where the hard sell is appreciated. Never pressure your subscribers into buying. Put sales pitches at the tail end of your emails, especially if your readers signed up with expectations of informative content. Consider email as a tool to cultivate interest, not instant sales.There is still life left in email marketing. If you take this article's advice into consideration and stay on the lookout for more ways to innovate and improve your email marketing efforts, there is no reason the strategy can't continue to serve you admirably for years and years.
