Mailing lists and newsletters are one of the most effective and efficient marketing tools for establishing a relationship with existing customers and your potential audience.

Creating a mailing list and building a newsletter system is one of the basic and growing components of a digital marketing strategy.

Why should you use email marketing

The purpose of the mailing list and sending emails is to keep in touch with your customers, brand awareness for your business and setting your business as an authority. Whether your goal is to increase website traffic or increase sales, building a mailing list and sending out newsletters is a significant part of the business marketing strategy.

Ownership – Most of the businesses invest in building a community in social media, but the control of these followers connections don’t belong to the business, it belongs to the social media platform and can change with any algorithm change. A mailing list is owned by the business and can be used as a marketing tool independently.

Authority – The newsletter can be used to update current and potential customers on everything new in the business  but also to deliver new information about the industry. This will help establish your business as a professional, expert and authority.

Personal Connection- Personal connection helps build trust and is the foundation of every marketing. Email is way more personal than any social media post. The action of registering to an email list is way stronger than page like or follow.

Focused Audience – The people that will sign to your mailing list are your focused  targeted audience. They already passed some steps in your business marketing funnel and are warmer potential clients.

Better exposure – We scroll through many posts in different social media platforms each day, but we read only a hand full of emails. Emails are perceived as more important and serious than any post, therefore the chances that people will read the message you are distributing in newsletter are higher.

Higher Conversion Rate – The conversion rates for purchase through email marketing are much higher than conversion rates for sale through social media. The audience is warmer, more down the marketing funnel and more ready to act. Therefore, if you provide real value in your newsletters you have better chances to convert a potential client to a paying client and a current client to a loyal client.

SEO – Every time someone will click from an email newsletter link and will get to your website, Google will know about it. Traffic from emails to the website will cause Google algorithm to understand that your readers like your content and that will help with your SEO.

Newsletter Types

Welcome email – After someone signs up to your mailing list, send them  thank you message. This email should include a short explanation of what to expect, and maybe a freebie. Welcome emails have high opening rates so don’t waste them with just “thank you for signing up”, use them to deliver all the relevant information. A welcome email can be a series of 3-4 emails.

Promotional Newsletters – This type of newsletter are a must. If your business has any promotion or coupon, send it to your customers straight to their email inbox, where it will stay, allowing them to return to it at a convenient time.

Summary of webinars, workshops and tutorials – On the way to becoming an authority in your field you will give your clients lots of knowledge. This type of newsletter is a great way to summarize the highlights of any webinar/workshop/event you had. You can even add a link to a landing page with more info about a related product/service.

News and Updates – One of the greatest ways to maintain a long-term relationship with your recipient is to inform them about the important things that are happening in your company.

Bi-weekly Newsletters – No matter the information you have on your biweekly newsletter, be consistent and send it on a regular basis. That way your clients remember you are there.
