Where to obtain an email address
A common question I get asked is "Do you provide us an email list for contacts in our industry?". The short answer is no, when working with permission based email marketing, you will be working your own personal list(s). We do however work with our clients to educate them on how they can grow their list through their marketing efforts.

No matter what kind of business you're in and no matter what your size, your goal should be to make the most of every visitor and every customer. By having an email marketing system in place you will have more of an incentive to grow your list and put a place  and purpose to those contacts you meet

Ask for email addresses at every point of customer contact:
  • website sign up boxOn your company website, add a sign up box along with an enticement to join
  • In a guest book at you place of work
  • On customer service or support calls
  • On invoices, brochures, customer surveys, feedback forms
  • At tradeshows, networking and other marketing events go prepared with more focus on making a connection not closing a sale.
Marketing Tip: Your Biggest Marketing Expense
Visit eWomen Network websiteMeeting and getting the customer to call that very first time is the biggest marketing expense in any business.
After the first call, our ongoing marketing expense is tiny to continuously keep us 'top of mind so that they only think about getting their service/product with us when they become ready to buy.
As a result of understanding this, businesses not only reap big rewards immediately with the prospects that are ready to buy right now but they also continue to reap big rewards from prospects that they literally paid to call them years ago. They know how important this is..
