An email marketing campaign attracts new customers, keeps and builds relationships with existing ones and up-sells or cross-sells your products and services. It is one of the cheapest marketing tools that you can use to communicate directly with your prospective, existing and past customers. Here are 10 steps to creating an effective email marketing campaign.

1. Test Your Subject Lines.

Your subject line is like a headline of an advertisement. if it does not attract the attention and interest of the reader, it will be ignored.

2. Write Your Content So That It Is Easy To Read.

The first few lines of your text have to be as interesting and relevant as possible. Many people set their in boxes to show the first few words or lines of an email to see if it is worth reading. If it's not, they will delete it and your message could be gone forever.

3. Don't Keep Sending The Same Message.

Your prospective customers will buy when they are ready to buy, not when you are ready to sell. If they always gets the same information and that information is always trying to sell them something, they will start to ignore your messages. Keep in contact with news and stories with relevant information.

4. Have A Call To Action

Make it obvious what you want action you want your readers to take. Use text that has a compelling reason to click on the link and try to avoid just saying 'click here'. Always remember the objective of your email marketing campaign.

5. Always Provide Value

People buy from people, organizations and brands they like and respect. If your only goal is just to just sell stuff and make money, you will not build any relationship with your list and lots of people will unsubscribe from your list.

6. Who Are Your Customers?

Know the fears, needs, desires or wants that your clients or prospects have and let them know how your product or service meets or solves it for them. Remember that no product or service can be all things to all people. If you don't know what your readers want, ask them!

7. Test Before Sending It.

Do not send your email marketing campaign without making sure that it is working. Send the email to yourself to check that it looks and reads as you intended, all your links work, and any personalisation is working correctly.

8. Let People Unsubscribe If They Want To.

Remember that people have given you their email address and their permission to send emails to them. If somebody decides that they do not want to receive emails anymore, let them unsubscribe easily. If a recipient has lost interest in receiving your emails, it is very unlikely that they will ever become a customer.

9. Remain Consistent.

There is no right or wrong answer on how many emails you should send each week or month. Have a plan of how often you will send your emails, stick to it and avoid irregular schedules. If you email twice a week and then start emailing twice a day, then revert to once a week , your recipients may well become fed-up and unsubscribe.

10. Get An Autoresponder.

Autoresponder software can manage many more emails than you could ever process yourself and makes it possible for you to stay in contact with your customers and prospects around the clock. It will follow-up prospects on auto-pilot with a series of pre-written email messages at pre-set times.

Tips For Shopping Online

1. When looking for a product online, take the time to read reviews. Try finding the same product on different sites to read as many reviews as possible. Reading many reviews will help you get a more general concept of whether or not the merchandise you are interested in meets high standards of quality.

2. If you want to spend less on the products you get online and want to make online shopping more fun, consider auction sites. You will get some good deals should you place your bids in the right moment and have some fun while browsing through auctions. Learn more about bidding strategies just before getting started.

3. Find out more about the payment methods offered by the online store you are interested in. Most stores supply you with the option to pay with credit cards or with PayPal. A charge card is a safe option only if the store includes a secure server. If you do not see any details about safety, it is best to go through a different store.

4. When you are shopping online, you should only shop at reputable stores. If the store does not have a good reputation, you may be asking for trouble. Many people have had their credit card and personal information stolen from shopping on lower than reputable websites. Be careful and protect your private information.

5. Online shopping is a great way to find items that are out of stock at your local store. As an example, if you are unable to find a certain size of jeans at the store close to you, you can look on the store's website and learn if they are accessible to be shipped to you.
