E-Mail Marketing


 

Bridging the gap between Inbound and Outbound Marketing 

 

Email marketing has a proven track record of generating revenue. When done correctly, it allows you to tailor content to where a customer is in their buying journey and when combined with market intel and social media analytics it can be a highly effective means of converting interest into purchases. However, if done incorrectly you can burn through contacts, switching them off to your messaging or even worse have them mark you as spam. This may sound rather dramatic, but when an e-mail is marked as spam it can lower your credibility not just with your audience but with search engines, potentially wasting your company’s previous SEO efforts.

E-marketing bridges the gap between inbound marketing and outbound marketing; it can be used for first contact or to provide information that your marketing-qualified lead has asked for. INCo’s approach to e-marketing leans toward the inbound methodology, in that we begin the process with good content. It is about creating something that your audience actually wants to read. INCo has had years of experience in crafting emails designed to address the challenges your customers face, not simply regurgitating company propaganda. This leads to greater open rates, greater click through rates and the identification of better qualified leads.

INCo’s digital team have a wealth of experience in email marketing, we understand that not all of your target audience members have the same goals or will require the same information to help them solve their own problems and our approach will reflect this. We offer our clients a range of email services on digital campaigns, direct campaigns and direct and digital campaigns. We provide various forms of e-marketing support in order to help you achieve your marketing goals from creating BASHO templates, managing an email marketing database or by sending requests for information.

Basho Emails

Basho emails can be a very successful way of putting you in front of the buying market.  However, they need to be properly structured to have the desired effect.

They are designed to engage the appropriate decision maker by attracting their attention, highlight and offer potential solutions to pain points within their business and clearly set out structured follow up practices.
