How can you effectively manage email marketing
Managing email campaigns can be quite time consuming and can cause unnecessary stress. Along with that there are concerns with the handing of data and GDPR. BDP can now manage your email campaign on your behalf, removing your concerns, stress and saving you valuable time to spend elsewhere.
Whitelisted Email Platforms
If you wish to manage your own email campaign, we recommend using a whitelisted email platform. You can see one of the platforms which many of our clients use and recommend here. Using a whitelisted platform within the EU also ensures that you stay compliant with GDPR. Using this whitelisted email platform, you are also able to see the statistics of your campaign in a report which shows you information from your campaign such as which contact has opened the email, to the contacts who have clicked on any links included within your email.
Within the whitelisted email platform, you are also able to set up automated emails in order to save you more time compared to if you were manually sending out follow up emails yourself. For example, you can send out your first email, and then set up a follow up email for contacts who have interacted, such as clicking a certain link, or opening multiple times. You could set up a follow up email for contacts who have shown interest in a certain product or service you offer from clicking a specific link, but then send out a different follow up email for contacts who have expressed an interest, however they have not clicked the related link to a specific product or service.
Another effective tip to manage your email campaign is the usage of a CRM. A CRM, customer relationship manager, is a platform where you can manage the interaction between your company and contacts. In this platform, you can safely store the contact details of the prospects who have shown interest from subscribing or have expressed their interest from the call to actions within your email campaign. A CRM is also useful for focusing on the retention of clients and following up with potential prospects, if you don’t already have a CRM in place within your business, we highly recommend investing in a CRM system.
