Improve Your Email Marketing Performance

Writers block is when you look at an empty document and have no idea what you are going to write. Nothing comes to you. It’s not particularly uncommon and most writers have developed methods to overcome the difficulty of pressing the first key. If you’re dissatisfied with your overall performance or just want to improve … READ MORE »

Do UK Companies Require An EU Representative

It is quite refreshing to be able to be definitive with regards a question on email marketing; not something which I am all that familiar with, but I’ll give it a go. You require a European representative if you are a UK-based controller or processor with no offices, branches or other establishments in the EEA, … READ MORE »

Convince Subscribers Of Long Term Benefits

There is a Simpsons cartoon which shows Homer struggling with whether to choose the immediate gratification of a tasty snack or a winning lottery ticket. It will come as no surprise to know he chose the former. The attractions of instant gratification trump delayed advantage. Don’t laugh. How many times have you left a website … READ MORE »

Ask An Engaging Question In The Subject Line

I did other stuff before ending up in email marketing. I used to enjoy lessons about roles new to me, but some instructors were less than engaging.

Moving on, Amazon email marketing is not an unending source of inspiration, but then they probably feel they don’t have to be as the … READ MORE »

Encourage Ideas Even If They’re Off-The-Wall

I used to work with a company where a mistake at middle management level could end a career. It was a deliberate policy, the hope being to ensure only those who never made errors were promoted. That’s not how it turned out. Those who ended up pristine were either the best at covering their mistakes … READ MORE »

The Key To Success Is To Give Something Away

There has been a trend in the emails and newsletters over recent weeks, particularly noticeable since the start of the New Year, that shows there might be a sense of desperation in some companies. I’m getting marketing emails that are nothing more than adverts for websites. In other words, I’m given lists of products but … READ MORE »

Percentage Reduction or Price Reduction?

According to a television news programme, one of the major high street retailers is considering doing away with percentages when referring to reductions in pricing.
