It sounds great, but how do you go about launching an effective email marketing campaign?
The first thing you'll need is a client database. Build your own list by offering value and make it easy for people to subscribe.
You need a good reason. Come up with something enticing to break through the inbox clutter.
Make it personal. Customise to individual recipients to ensure your email is not binned before being read.
Cross-promote by adding links to your Twitter and Facebook pages, as well as your website.
Generate immediate action sales, downloads, enquiries and registrations. Send people to your offline store or event.
