Email marketing is one of the best ways to promote yourself and your business, whether you have a brick-and-mortar store or a strictly online business. It is relatively simple and easy to use, and it can help you reach an unprecedented number of potential customers while staying in touch with current customers.
When you’re talking about inbound marketing, there are many ways that you can use email beyond just sending a company newsletter. A regular newsletter that’s full of valuable information is a great start. But there are opportunities to send individual marketing emails will offers, to create multiple drip campaigns based on the customer’s interest, and even create complicated automated campaigns that help work a customer down the funnel to a sale.
One of my favorite email automation tactics is the simple abandoned cart email that’s sent after someone has added something to their cart, but didn’t finalize their order. This simple tactic is a great way to use email to close a sale and all you have to do is setup the functionality and never touch it again. It’s just really surprising to me how many companies aren’t even using the most simple email techniques available to them. So I wanted to spend a little bit of time here today talking about email, and to hopefully get you thinking about the opportunities.
