Email marketing is an area many companies use and can get lulled into thinking creating an email and sending it to a list is all there is to it. More effective results can be achieved in terms of open rates, click-through rates and sustainability by relying on a firm that has deeper knowledge.
Things like email server reputation, an optimum subject line, concentrated content, professional graphic treatment, best practices for list building, list pre-scrubbing and reliable tracking are all areas that few people, even in marketing, understand well enough to know their importance and how to leverage them. If you would like to learn more on this marketing topic, read our newsletter, white paper or better still, talk to us about this or any other marketing subject.
Creating content for technology companies starts with content creators that have technical backgrounds enabling them to understand how a product works, what its advantages are compared to competitors’ products and what matters to potential customers.
Combining an understanding of technology with knowledge of the different communications vehicles and how to address technical audiences is key to creating content that is effective in getting attention, persuasion, action and cost-effective delivery.
In terms of delivery, AAI has found the effective use of PR, inbound marketing techniques like email marketing as well as advertising each have their use and getting the mix right produces the best results. These results are trackable on companies websites, email campaigns and through direct contact with prospects and customers.
Marketing update. AAI staff recently attended a seminar on marketing automation in Burlington to supplement our own research, experience and learn the opinions of other software and SAAS (software as a service) users.
A lot of information and opinions were communicated, and one of the biggest takeaways was that you have to spend the time day in and out to use the many features of various software programs available to input/filter data and 'tweak' your 'funnel model'.
Having a baseline digital marketing plan as well as digital implementation review and analytics tracking software in place are musts before the automation software will be of use.
Pick your hot topic. Email marketing, inbound or content marketing, marketing automation, social marketing and other hot areas are getting lots of attention right now. The real question is though, what can really make the biggest difference in terms of exceeding marketing goals for your business.
The answer is, having good marketing fundamentals in place starting with a plan, implementing them, then adding the 'newer' marketing tactics that make sense in a structured way.
What are the fundamentals I'm referring to? Taking a unified approach to marketing by... copy platform, brand, common communications, planning all marketing activities as a unified set instead of one-offs... more to come.
