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. If you like a web-based store, sign up for their email distribution list. You will probably receive some coupons and information about deals in your mailbox. Check these emails regularly to stay up to date with great deals and promotional offers. Most online stores often offer free freight or discounts on certain products.

2. When you're shopping online you should be sure that you know who you're buying from. If you're buying on an online auction site, only order from people that have positive feedback. On other sites look to see if they are a reputable company by searching for reviews on them online.

3. Be wary of the emails you receive, even if they appear to be coming from a retailer you trust. Never click on a hyperlink that directs you to a web site other than the main one you shopped on. Should you do, you may become vulnerable to a scam. Rather than clicking on an email hyperlink, just go up to your browser and enter in the web site you want to go to. It is actually much safer that way.

4. Discover the online store's return policy. If you are considering building a purchase on an item that you might want to return, be sure you find out if returning the item is surely an option. Sometimes when you shop online, items cannot be returned and you may not want to be stuck with an unwanted item.

5. When shopping online, most places only accept debit or credit cards. Take this into account when you are selecting a site to shop from. Should you don't feel at ease providing the company with your bank card information, try to find another site. Try to find a website that offers a secure page when you're adding your credit card information.
