admin answers:

I’m an email marketer for a financial analysis company. We provide investment/trading-educational products and services to individuals and large financial institutions.

As someone said below, email marketing cannot be taught in this short space and time, but I’ll share a few of the things that have been successful for me and my company.

OBTAINING LEADS
Before you craft a powerful email message, you must 1) have an audience and 2) understand their motivations (know what they want).

So you must obtain an email list. You can buy them, but purchased lists are almost always expensive and frequently saturated (emailed so frequently they they become worthless).

Instead, we employ a lead-generation program, in which we offer a free product (a 20-50 page ebook — something like that) for download. All we ask in return is an email address. We employ a “double opt-in” [look it up if you're unfamiliar] lead-generation method to ensure our list is highly qualified and kept clean. If you don’t want our emails, we don’t want you to get them, bottom line. Without explaining in too much detail we’ve found that our delivery rates increase when we make sure we only send to people who specifically tell us they want our stuff. If they click the “SPAM” button when we email them, this hurts delivery rates to other people who truly do want our messages.

MARKETING MESSAGE
Ok, now that you have a list (audience), you must decide how to market your product/service. There are several successful methods, but via email, the long-copy sales letter approach is in my opinion the very best.

Here’s what we’ve been doing with great success lately. We craft a very compelling, “you”-focused (emotional if appropriate), 500-1000 word email message that focuses SOLELY on getting a CLICK. This message is NOT designed to sell your product; it’s designed only to get people to want to learn more about it, i.e. Click a link to your long-copy sales letter landing page.

Once people click to that page, they should see today’s date (there are easy HTML codes to facilitate this); it provides a subtle yet important feeling of legitimacy. They should also see similar imagery to the email message (same logo, same copy style, same coloring, etc. — they must know INSTANTLY they’re at the correct site.)

Highly qualified buyers make the best subscribers (high retention rates) and repeat customers, so don’t be afraid to share EVERY MINUTE DETAIL (no matter how small or insignificant you think it might be) — and I mean EVERYTHING!

I’ve seen successful long-copy sales letter pages run anywhere from 5000 words to 20000 words (a general guideline is: the higher the commitment, the longer, more detailed the copy.)

Readers MUST be immediately hooked into a message designed specifically for them, for example …

But DO NOT make the letter all one font with huge blocks of copy. Break up the copy with bigger, bold subheads, use images of people using your product along with “cutlines” to describe what’s in the images (real images are preferred, stock are acceptable), show the product itself, include a short letter in a sidebar from the products’ creator/manager about what it will provide, how it was created, why it was created, etc.

THIS IS IMPORTANT: Provide direct steps to checkout throughout the copy, not just at the end.

Some marketers prefer to use long-copy sales letters directly in the email, but this multi-step process (short email > long-copy sales letter > checkout process) has been the most effective for me. I believe it’s because we tightly optimize each step for a very specific purpose:

– Email’s purpose is to gain credibility, qualify your lead and get the click
– Long-copy sales letter’s purpose is to strengthen trust by getting readers to your website, share details about your product, share testimonials from your current customers, tell readers how you’ve eliminated the risk to trying your product and then facilitate an order.
– Checkout process must be as clean, simple and fast as possible. Take their money and get out of the way — eliminate anything that might create someone to stall during the checkout process.
- As soon as the checkout process is complete (and not before), tell people about similar products the

Lizzie asks…

How to start my company’s email marketing campaigns?

Our company recently prepares to start email marketing campaigns. There is so many email marketing service provided online. I want to know which one is much better? There are also lots of email marketing software. Which is better for our company had about 6000-10000 subscribers?

admin answers:

I’m not too familiar w/ email marketing, but I assume that a large percentage of emails that people get go unread. Has your company done any online advertising? Online marketing is the trendy thing to do nowadays, whether through social media sites like FB or Twitter or through online listing websites, you can really expose your business to the right consumers. The best part about online marketing is it’s free, if done correctly.

Create a Facebook page for your business to increase awareness. Also, you should list your business online, specifically on websites that direct users to local businesses in their area. Zipzoom.com is actually a pretty cool online service; it is an online shopping website where users/customers can search for local businesses that offer products and services ranging from babysitters to electricians to flowers. Users can communicate directly with businesses they choose to buy services/products from after getting recommendations from zipzoom.com, and from there, your business can gain business. Usually, I believe they charge vendors for signing up, but since they’re new, they are offering a special promotion for vendors who are interested: register as a vendor for free. It’s a good option for those who are on a tight budget but still need exposure to grow their business. If this is something that appeals to you, you should just try it out and see what happens.

Online advertising through social media is just a suggestion. Who knows? Your company may have better luck w/ email marketing. Good luck.

Your Questions About Email Marketing Companies

David asks…

I want to start a direct email marketing company and would like to know how do i go about it?

I have searched on the net but was not able to get any solution.
Can someone help me with this?

admin answers:

Regardless of the industry you are in, if you are going to have success online you need to build your own list.

You should include an opt-in form on all of your webpages. Offer your subscribers a gift for signing up. This can be a unique article or e-book, a mini course, plr reports, etc.

Use an autoresponder service to manage your list and send regular emails. The information that you send must be useful and helpful, or you will get a lot of opt-outs.

Once your list is being built and you have built rapport with your subscribers you will have the ability to promote and grow just about any business.

If you have any further questions or need more clarification feel free to contact me using the email in my profile.

List of Webhosting companies to allow email marketing through there server?

I need to buy server at competitive price so that we can run email marketing script through our domain. I just know many of webhosting companies dont allow such activities. I need the names of companies who allow such services.

Thanks..
sorry for spelling mistake. The question is: List of Webhosting companies to allow email marketing through their server?
@Arie,

Thanks, but webhosting companies provide SMTP, POP etc. which we can use to send emails from our domain. But in our knowledge, there are some limitations in email sending through hosting server when we are sending to many emails. I know that we can setup an email server in local PC to run the email marketing. But it would be better if email sender script is hosted under a webhosting company. Since we can access that from anywhere. Plus, Lynux hosting has CRON which we can use to ensure the delivery. Currently, we don’t have any situation to setup different things or create our server or hire more people to maintain that.

admin answers:

You are mixing up two things here: web hosting and an e-mail server. A web hoster does not have an e-mail server for its clients normally, you are confusing a hosting provider with an Internet Service Provider (ISP). You can set up an e-mail server yourself using Postfix for example.

I would recommend doing all of the above.

But also bear in mind, when you sign website guestbooks etc, These pages are utilised by spammers, hence why you ma receive mails from companies that are of no relevance.

Your Questions About Email Marketing Software

Sandra asks…

Email marketing software?

I run a small catering business in Orlando. I have a huge list of email for potential clients, which i purchased from trusted source. I am looking for some cost effective email marketing software to manage my email campaign.
Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks

admin answers:

Be careful – it sounds like you are getting into spamming, in which case you’ll end up with a lot of irritated people, a rotten reputation and no business. How do other similar businesses in your area operate? Advertising in papers, magazines, flyers with menus and prices delivered to potential customers? Ultimately word-of-mouth recommendations are the best.

Laura asks…

Email Marketing. Which is best? to buy software and install or use third party company?

Hello People

I just started small online business. One way of getting in touch and offer the service to my customers/ subscribers is to send them emails each week. I would like to know which is the best way for cost effective in email marketing. Is it best to buy email marketing software and install on my system or use the third party company where I would have to pay monthly.

What I see is that email marketing software range from £200+ and third party companies range from £10 for about 500 email/month.

Yet I don’t see any reason to pay monthly to get limited email sending why not buy software install and send as many as I want with no rising monthly cost.

Does anyone knows the down side of buying email marketing software compared to use third part companies.

Regards

Cyberfx

admin answers:

I would buy software. It would definitely be a lot more reliable and more cost effective (as you are already aware of in terms of the monthly costs). The only downside I can think of software is if you use a poor program. Use a company like Vai and you should be fine. Hope this helps!

Nancy asks…

Email Marketing Software Problems..!?

I seem to be going from one extreme to the other. Started off my email marketing a few weeks ago, which basically meant emailing any one who had ever contacted me, which worked ok but I needed to reach more people or companies within the Health Care sector, so I started using this email address finding software which is good, too good in fact, I now have too many emails with out a really good sending software.
If anyone knows of such a software that will not get me blacklisted then please let me know.
I have already tried Sandblaster, Dark mailer.
Email harvester I use can ne found at www.get-email-addresses.com
Many thanks
Shazza

admin answers:

You will definitely get blacklisted if you send any email to people you don’t know regardless of which software you use. There are ways to get around this problem, but for that you need to get help from an expert who understands how blacklists work.

John asks…

email marketing software?

I need an email marketing software package that will do its thing i.e. set up a list of emails and what emails to send but actually send them through through outlook 07

i need it sent through outlook becase i have an access database set up that imports replies from the emails sent through out look directly in to the database

this access database is then uploaded to an sql database

so i need what i said above or a email marketing program than can export all replies to an excel sheet or something that i can then upload to sql

helpp

admin answers:

Actually, you can import or export Excel spreadsheets with most of the major autoresponder companies such as Aweber, Get Response of Email Aces. One problem though is that with Aweber or Get Response you cannot start sending mail to these people unless they re-optin and accept receiving mail from you once again. So if you are a marketer it can be somewhat of a hindrance after already building a list of subscribers else where. But the good news is that Email Aces allows you to import without those repercussions.

You might also check out a company called GoldMail. I’m sure you would find it in a search. It’s a very professional business Email service that could help set you apart from most other companies. Hope that helps.

William asks…

where can I get a good email list for newsletter marketing of my site?

I would like to find a good email list for my marketing. My wife recently signed up for this auction site and immediately started getting emails from other auction sites. How do they do that. She never went on the sites she is getting emails from and the site she joined is not affiliated with those sites. Im positive on that. I would like to get lists like that

admin answers:

The emails you are receiving sound like borderline spam, while it’s acceptable to send a promotion for someone else’s product to an email address you have a relationship with, it’s not considered ethical to share email addresses with other companies.

There are email list brokers, often the same companies that collect snail mail lists too. Many list cost thousands of dollars. Spam Can regulations specify that emails are to be send only with the recipient’s permission, internet postmasters are on the lookout to halt multiple mails from a single source. You might look into buying ad space in targeted emagazines.

Marketers will set up campaigns solely for the purpose of creating their own email list to which they send useful information, promotions for their own products and products of joint partners who swap mailings. Marketers may value their mails list ot be worth $1 per person, per month. The email sign up campaigns will generally offer an enticement, like a 20 page report that people have to sign up for, later a first contact email is sent asking them to verify that they have signed up to the list, this best practice is refereed to as double opt in emails.

Services that automate the email marketing process and also improve email delivery rates called auto responders, aweber is the biggest name in the field, charging $20/mo to send out predefined sequences on emails.

Sharon asks…

What is the best solution for sending messages to my email lists?

Is using Bcc a good option to sending out large amounts of emails to my mailing lists? I have tried using direct delivery, but that is not working. I have also tried the bulk email marketing servers, but I had too many spam complaints and they terminated my account. I’m not spamming, just responding to emails from my ads.

admin answers:

I use BCC but found that my Yahoo account only allowed so many in a given 24 hour period. I would suggest, if you haven’t already, to get more than one account, or ante-up and get an email that allows for as many bulk emails as you need.

Good luck.

Carol asks…

how can i get people to opt in of my email marketing list.?

i have a few sites, which are normal sites, selling good products.

how can i make people opt in to the site, so that i can send them emails on various updates to the site.

admin answers:

For that you probably need a auto responder service like aweber or get response.

If you are using something like zencart to make sell products, then there is a plugin available for that.

You should first give your potential ( clients) a lot of good valuable content before singining up, after signup.

And make them buy something really good.

How to charge and what amount for consultancy of Social Media Marketing services?

We will provide Social Media Marketing services to customers on mainly platform of Facebook, Orkut, Blogger, Scribd and other portals. How to charge for the services mainly per addition of a Friend, per marketing email or some other parameters. Kindly let me know.

admin answers:

Generally these services are done on an hourly basis. You set and hourly rate and charge for your time. Your rate will depend on your abilities and time in the marketplace. You could also develop flat rates for specific tasks such as sending an email or setting up a Facebook page.

Charging per friend would probably not be a good method for you or the customer.

For ongoing work you could consider a monthly contract.

What is the best Email Marketing software/service for a company with multiple mailing lists?

We are a mid-sized business growing our customer base. Our emails range from customer assistance to product promotions.

We need to be able to send approximately 40,000 to 60,000 emails a month. We prefer to be able to update our own customer and prospect databases with the opt in and opt out information rather than duplicating the data from our service. And we would like to handle opt-outs per list type, (opting out of product promotions does not stop the regular newsletter, and opting out of the newsletter does not opt the client from service notices.)

We have found www.ConstantContact.com to be an effective solution for our clients.

What is best email marketing company for a small business?

I’m looking to send monthly newsletters to my customers. I’m not a techie and just want to send a few simple emails. An easy to use program/service is my most important consideration, with affordability a close second. I have the emails, (I don’t need a list). What I need is the service/function.

Thank yoU!

admin answers:

I know of a couple of options:

1) Constant Contact (http://www/constantcontact.com) – their plans start at $15/month for 500 e-mails per month.

2) Cooler E-mail (http://www.cooleremail.com) – starts at $19.95 for 250 e-mails per month.

I believe both of these services walk you through setting up your e-mail in HTML (if you want to).

Do you have a website for your business?
Even if you aren’t a “techie”, you can build a basic site which would give your business even more exposure. The company that I built my site through also offers e-mail marketing and it is included in the price of the web service. They also have a block-by-block site builder so you don’t need to know HTML and they submit all of your pages to the search engines so you get traffic more quickly. If you want to see the site I built with the block-by-block builder (with very little HTML knowledge) and find out about the web service/e-mail marketing, go to http://www.eatingwithfoodallergies.com/aboutthissite.html

what is email list marketing?

i have read a few things about this email marketing, basically what i understand from it is that you take my email address, and then what?

i mean what do you do with my email list? and how can i make one like that?

admin answers:

This email marketing thing works like this –

you give some valuable content to the users, in return they give you their email address,

then you give them some more valuable content, and within that email give them something to market, that is – you give them something to buy, and earn commissions from them.

Targeted email lists are extremely valuable.

Robert asks…

how do i get people to optin to my email marketing list?

i have a small course in my subject matter, i want to make a list of like 2-3000 people who would be interested in buying material related to my subject matter.

how can i do that.

admin answers:

The trick is to give them a part of what they want for free, and give the other part for a fee..

You can use something like aweber or getresponse type email marketing lists.

Having said that, i cannot stress the need to give more, i mean there are only like 2 lists that i have remained subscribed to, and both of them are the emails i look forward to reading, because they give so so much more.

Any of the auto responders will explain it to you.

Maria asks…

I am lost on through what medium to go about putting together email marketing lists. Thanks…?

I have tried many things from traffic to blogs to ppc. I am also au courant to joining. I am so disappointed! Can someone please give some information on the subject matter and tell me what I need to do to get going? No one opts in at my site and I feel like no matter what I try and put up to captivate them nothing works. Please DO NOT SPAM ME!.

admin answers:

You need to offer the visitor something of value, like a free e-book, video or report in exchange for their opt-in subscription.

Many people have this free content on the next page after the visitor opt-in. However, people may give you fake info just to get the free content without subscribing with a real e-mail.

Awebber is an e-mail marketing system that allows you manage your opt-in subscribers, verify their e-mail address and automatically sends them your free e-book after they confirm.

Its the best way to stay on the up and up with e-mail marketing. All the pros use them!

Hi, I was wondering if there is a way to read my email marketing statistics correctly and see how it can do to an email marketing campaign?

admin answers:

If you are using an auto-responder like aweber or constant contact, you can log into your account and see the open rates for html sent emails. (does not work for text messages). That gives you some information, but the better strategy is to create more than one version of each email you send and test them against each other to see which one gets more opens.

The key element will be the SUBJECT of the email, and that is what you want to test.

I use Aweber and they will give you a lot feedback on how likely you email is to be delivered, as well as the actual delivery results. In fact they guide you through the process extensively. This does not work as a solution if you are trying to a mass mailing to people who have not opt-ed into your list. In fact, that is probably a real waste of time and resources.

The best way to make a mailing, if you do not have a list, is to contact newsletter owners (writing about your niche) and pay for them to drop an email(s) for you to their list. Just check out their readership counts to make sure you are getting what you pay for.

Good luck!

How to get email addresses for marketing my business?

Hi,
I am looking into doing some email marketing for my business. My list of emails is relatively small at the moment and these are made up of existing customers and enquires etc. I have tried searching at Google, sorry Yahoo and going through website after website to get emails but it is taking ages.
My web designer gave me some software to help but it is so complicated that I am still no further on.
Please any help in this area would be great.
Many thanks
Sharon

Hi Sharon
I am not totally surprised by what you are saying about that email harvesting software your web guy gave you, there are lots out that are way to complicated and just don’t work.
The software I use lets you do a complete search and save plus use the data completely free, so worries about wasting money on duff software.
When you first install the software it pops up a wizard that guides you through the process but it is really just typing in one box, so not rocket science.
If you are looking for thousands of email addresses then you can import a merge list which will increase the number of searches done.
Try it and I will be shocked if it doesn’t work you.

Your Questions About Email Marketing

Lisa asks…

How effective are email harvesting softwares when it comes to email marketing?

Are there people who are having success by using email harvesting softwares for email marketing? I want to buy an email spider but they are very expensive. So I want to be sure of their effectiveness before I buy. Also advise me on which email harvesting software is best to buy.

admin answers:

Building an email list with an email spider is not the best solution. Your list we not be “clean” a lot of people will mark your emails as spam. This will cause more problems than results. You need to find intuitive solutions to get peoples email that are interested in the product you have to offer. Give something in exchange for example register for my email marketing tips and tricks newsletter.

Another good way to get users is to create contests and give away something.

admin answers:

Legit email marketing involved having an opt in list for people to sign up for.

Then, mass email is sent (per day, week, month, or whatever) with content. The person signing up may also be able to customize by saying how often they’re open to receiving emails.

Aweber is probably the most common one. They offer a free 1 month trial and I find it quite useful:

Michael asks…

Do email marketing services really work?

I have heard good and bad things about email marketing services. They claim to allow users to send spam free messages to thousands of leads. I don’t want to spend the money if no one will ever get the message, or if it really is spam. Does these email marketing services work? Or does anyone have a low cost service they recommend?

admin answers:

This is kind of tricky. The services your talking about MAY indeed only send your email to people on a ‘clean’ list that have said they would accept this type of mail.

….BUT, what good does it do you? These people (recipients) probably have no interest in what you’re selling at all. They have shown no prior interest in your products or services.

The odds of you selling something to these compiled email lists is almost ZERO….and selling them something at a profit is even harder.

In general, the industry refers to these lists as “The Sucker Lists”
because they are attractive to new internet marketers.
Instead start working to build your OWN lists online that will be far more responsive to what you’re selling.

Charles asks…

What is the best program for email marketing campaigns?

I am about to launch a new computing goods website for the business and wish to inform customers on file about it.

What is the best program to use to conduct email marketing campaigns?

Have any of you lot got any suggestions, preferably we’d prefer one that has statistics such as read, deleted, un-subscribed, etc.

Looking forward to your suggestions.
Thanks

admin answers:

Well, I have spent a gazillion hours looking into this myself. I’ve learned a lot through the trial and error method and the school of hard knocks because I’ve actually used several different ones.

I’ve also gotten opinions from some of the “super affiliate” top marketers on the web who have big lists they email to all the time.

So here goes a brief rundown of what I’ve learned:
1. I contact is the cheapest and most basic. Very few frills.
2. Constant contact is a step above icontact in terms of bells and whistles but if you boil it all down they are not that different (cc costs a bit more).
3. Lyris is a lot more than just an email program. They offer some pretty awesome data and lead-tracking capabilities through their own software. If you want to be able to track the buying behavior of all website visitors, such as those who buy in a store vs. Online vs over the phone, etc. Then this is the one for you.
4. Almost EVERY super affiliate with the big email lists strongly recommend Aweber for the highest open rates in the industry. (And the thus the highest % read and the lowest deleted %, etc.)

They’ve got the greatest autoresponder programs for you, which provides the most important element to making money: Continual followup with different people in the right way.

Full Disclosure: I have no commercial relationship or interest in any of these (or any other) email programs.

Conclusion: If you’re building a big list strictly for web marketing, then Aweber is the best. If you’re using the email list and the website to complement and support a bricks and mortar store, then Lyris is the best. If you just want to send out less than 1,000 emails once a month, perhaps in newsletter format, then Constant Contact will work just fine. And icontact is similar but the budget choice.

If you want to be #1 in Google (and other search engines) in your local market, for what you sell, I can show you how. It’s pretty easy if you know what you’re doing. Http://www.thetaxdoctor.info; http://www.thetaxdoctor.info/custom7.php or email me at ucanbenumberone@gmail.com
