1. Email is not dead

Email marketing is still one of the most effective ways to influence and communicate with customers and potential customers. If used right, it can be one of the best ROI strategies you use. The key is to influence at such a high level that you build raving fans. You can’t do that without bringing serious value to the table. 

Email marketing is also a relatively low-cost way to reach a large audience and with extremely targeted messages based on their interests and behaviors and also with personalisation, such as using a recipient’s name in the subject line or body of the email, to make the message feel more personalized and relevant to the individual.

It is measurable with detailed tracking and reporting, so you can measure the success of your campaigns and make data-driven decisions. A well-designed email marketing campaign can reach a large number of people fast and you should be sending emails frequently, even daily to weekly.

2. SMS Marketing

SMS marketing is one of the most effective ways for businesses to reach their customers and promote their products or services. Here are some key benefits of SMS marketing:

High open rate

SMS messages have a high open rate, with most people opening and reading their texts within a few minutes of receiving them. This means that your message is likely to be seen and read by a large portion of your target audience.

Targeted Messaging

SMS marketing allows you to send personalized, targeted messages to specific groups of people based on their interests or behaviors. This can be particularly useful for targeting specific demographics or for promoting specific products or services.

Cost-effective

SMS marketing is generally less expensive than other forms of marketing, such as direct mail or paid advertising. This makes it a cost-effective option for businesses of all sizes.

Convenient

SMS messages are convenient for both businesses and customers. Customers can easily opt-in to receive messages and can choose to opt-out at any time, and businesses can send messages quickly and easily through a variety of SMS marketing platforms.

SMS Marketing Use Case

One way to use SMS marketing effictively is what we call a reactivation campaign. A reactivation campaign is where we take a list of past clients and reactivate that list. It works unbelievably well where you have clients from the past that may not have received any communication and you send them an SMS with an offer. As an example here is what we have sent out for a mortgage broker client:

SMS1

Hey it’s (your name) from (your details), we currently have spaces available to review your finances. Do you want to schedule a time? just reply with a Yes or No.

YES or Positive Response

Using Ai Technology if the client responds with a positively, such as Yes or Would love too, then we send an automated response with a calendar invite or confirmation.

NO or Negative Resp

Using Ai Technology if the client responds with a negative response such as No or Not right now, then we send them another SMS thanking them for their time.

Results: A recent reactivation campaign, for a client with 240 clients on their old client list, received 36 new appointments in his calendar and resulted (so far) with 8 new sales valued at $8,900. Best of all we also added a nurture campaign via email that over time will produce even more results from those that said no.

3. Reviews

Review Tools

Imagine if your clients complete a new sale, transaction, settle a new deal or sale of a new product and the reviews where automatically sent to the client via SMS or Email. What if you have never asked for reviews in the past and you had the option of sending a bulk review request to all your past clients also via email or SMS? There are a number of tools you can use to complete reviews, even sending links from Google, FaceBook or Trust Pilot.

Issue with this is it’s not automated or if you use a software to complete it is another software solution bolted on to your existing operation, meaning miultiple duct taped solutions and multiple costs.With Customli you can build your reputation and brand easily with automated Google or Facebook reviews via email or SMS.

For example, if a user frequently visits pages about a particular topic, a company might show them ads related to that topic. Understanding how users interact with a website or app, companies can make design and functionality improvements that better meet the needs of their users and Increases conversions.

Using pixel data helps you understand user behaviors and interests, and you can optimize your website and apps to better meet the needs of your target audience, which can lead to increased conversions (i.e., sales or other desired actions).
