Every business owner knows the difficulty of marketing and the expenses that come along with acquiring new customers. If you have the money to put into it, getting new customers becomes easy after a while.
But most businesses struggle when it comes to “keeping their customers coming back and getting repeat sales.” Getting repeat customers is a piece of cake compared to generating new customers.
Many companies make the mistake of getting stuck in the process of attracting new customers and forget to take care of the ones that have already purchased from them.
We live in a world where there are thousands of players in any given industry and customers will continue to buy from businesses they know, like, and trust as long as they see value in the product or service.
Although it is ignored by many people, email marketing has the power to popularize company brands and keep customers coming back. The problem is that most businesses focus on “lead generation” and totally ignore “repeat business.” However, the more loyal customers you have, the more sales you can make while reducing your advertising expenses at the same time.
If you want your company to come to mind every time someone needs your type of product or service, you must use email marketing effectively. You first have to start by asking your existing customers to join your list; followed by new customers.
Never stop adding people to your list and think of creative ways to get people to join your list. Then you have to use email marketing to keep them informed with information related to your industry as well as special promotional offers.
The nice thing about email marketing is that while it is effective in keeping existing customers updated and coming back to you, it will also act as an effective method to recruit new customers. For instance, you can have people join your newsletter list and slowly build a relationship with them via email with an aim at converting them into new customers.
Emails contain more information as opposed to other forms of advertisement and marketing. This is because in an email, you can include a lot of information whereas other methods usually have a limited amount of small space that you can use to get your message across. The inclusion of a business logo and images can attract even more attention and create brand awareness.
