Businesses struggle to find budget-friendly, effective methods of communication.

We realize that we cannot make phone calls to all of our clients to share news and information in a timely manner.

How would we create and send a mass email to our client list? Stop asking yourself these questions and start an email marketing campaign today!
Email Campaigns are:
Email plays a significant role in our lives. We communicate via email for personal and business reasons every day. It can often be the best way to reach a person. At some point in time, the majority of your clients have an email address that they shared with you. They did this because they WANT your business to share updates, sales and other need to know information with them via EMAIL.
Cheap & Easy
Email marketing campaigns give you the opportunity to communicate with a significant number of your clients in one shot. There is no better way to get your message out quickly and for little to no cost.
Like print ads, you can include your logo or other graphics to help get your message across. But, unlike print ads and social media posts, emails allow you to address each client by name as well as to personalize the subject line. You are able to segment your email list, providing the opportunity to tailor a message to each of your specific audiences and provide each reader with something of value.
People have been taught to handle their emails. They open an email message, skim the contents; then reply, forward, or click on a link. Each email message you send should encourage action and direct traffic to your website.
Instant feedback and statistics are everything! Email marketing campaign software allows you to track who opened your message, which links were clicked through and how many people unsubscribed from your mailing list. From this information, you are able to learn if your campaign is performing well, what worked in the message and what can be tweaked to make future campaigns more successful.
