Tip Make every effort to strike a personal tone in your emails. Like all marketing, customers are more likely to sign up for those who add a personal touch.

If you want to stay in touch with your existing customers and attract new ones, marketing with email is the way to go. However, it can feel overwhelming to start up an email promoting campaign because there are a large number of different strategies you can utilize. The advice in this article will help you to navigate your way through marketing with email, allowing you to understand the advantages for both you and the business you run.

Tip Avoid bombarding your recipients with the “Buy now!” approach. People can recognize this kind of approach easily.

Harness all of the resources available to teach yourself about email marketing strategies. You may find many books online and in libraries. You may even be able to find a local workshop or class to get hands-on teaching to help you learn.

Tip Before sending any emails, be sure to proofread them thoroughly. You have to make sure all your newsletters and emails are letter perfect.

Marketing with email is about getting people to buy your products. Each email that subscribers receive should move them closer to making a purchase. This can be done with an email that provides new product information, that goes over the benefits of an existing product or that talks about a new promotion.

Tip Find out as much information as possible about email marketing. There is a wealth of information available online about this.

Avoid sending more than one marketing email per week. Your customer base is likely made up of people who are busy and receive many messages each day. If you send too many messages, your customers may begin deleting them unread.

Tip Keep track of the subject lines on e-mails that get opened and those that do not. To do this, simply select an email and then send it to one half of your mailing list with one subject line, and the other half with a different subject line.

Avoid using too many graphics in your marketing newsletters. Quite a few email reading programs available block graphics, making it possible that many of your intended readers can’t read the email properly. Too many graphics can also trigger the junk mail filter present in email programs, preventing your message from ever being seen.

Tip Experiment with different formats for your email newsletters. The beginning of your emails should include new information and offers.

Develop a strategy that addresses your customer base. Persistence is a critical part of any marketing with email strategy, but misplaced persistence can be quite damaging; so, make sure to understand the difference between good and bad persistence. Customers who have proven unresponsive to your emails are unlikely to be swayed by continued efforts, and may even get frustrated with you, instead.

Tip Be sure to get permission before you use email to contact anyone. Most clients will simply look at them as spam and delete them right away.

The introductory paragraph related the idea that you can use email marketing to both communicate with existing customers and find new customers. What you’ve read here will help you to get off on the right foot, creating emails your customers both read and enjoy.
