Happy Monday! At Sanctuary we love creative marketing. How do you get people to buy more of your product? Challenge them to explore what outer space tastes and feels like! According to the official press release, Starlight Coca-Cola “includes additional notes reminiscent of stargazing around a campfire, as well as a cooling sensation that evokes the feeling of a cold journey to space.” In our experience, space tastes like cherry Coke with a sprinkle of cotton candy. Go grab a cold one and ponder how you can be a little more creative in your marketing this month too!

How to pivot from Low Open and Click-Through Rates on Emails
Every marketer knows the value of a quality email list. With a good list on your side, it’s almost like you have a license to print money every time you send out a message.

Here’s Why a Post-Sale Check-In with Customers is a Must
Learn about the value of staying in touch with your customers after a sale has been made. There is a lot to gain by going the extra mile post-sale, so read on!
In marketing, nearly all of your efforts are typically focused on bringing in customers and making sales. That’s the goal of the job, after all… to sell to as many people as possible and drive revenues up. There’s nothing wrong with that goal but being focused solely on selling can cause you to miss a valuable opportunity.
This article is going to discuss the value of staying in touch with your customers after a sale has been made. There is a lot to gain by going the extra mile and checking in with those who have already bought at least once, yet many businesses fail to take this step. We hope the content below will encourage you to stay in touch and you’ll even get a few ideas on how to accomplish that.

NEW PODCAST SERIES
How to start a business or new endeavor
We recently took a short break from our regular business growth advice to find inspiration around how to “start” something new and great.
This might be a new business. But it could also be a new product, division of your company, or even starting a new hobby or reaching a personal goal.
Running a successful company, year after year is hard. But starting a company is where most people ultimately fail. Our company is now into its second decade of success and growth and we’ve learned a thing or two along the way. We’re still learning on all fronts. But there is one area that we’ve successfully completed and that is how to start.
The beginning of every new endeavor is different. We don’t claim to have the perfect roadmap. There is a little bit of magic, luck and fairy dust involved when someone actually starts a company and it becomes something that’s viable.
So, for that reason, we created this podcast series to pass on some stories and advice to people who are thinking about starting something new. The stories and advice here will likely be different than the next business owner’s experiences, but these are our stories and advice (an origin story?) and this is how we took our company from nothing to something viable.
