Did you know that, “80% of business professionals believe email marketing increases customer retention.” (Emarsys) So, my question to you is — “How are you connecting with your customers?” If you are not using the power of email marketing to interact with your customers and convert leads into buyers, you are not using your full earning potential.
It’s a well-known fact that people will do business with people they know, like, and trust. If your customers or visitors take the time to visit your webpage or sign-up to hear from you and then they don’t, you are missing an opportunity to lay the foundation for a professional relationship and to convert those leads into customers.
You need to reach out and connect with your customers — regularly. Keep them engaged by sharing relevant and meaningful information with them to build their trust. Just like you would begin a relationship with someone you meet face-to-face, the same principles apply — you need to built trust and respect; and offer relevant and meaningful information.
Each time you connect with your customers, strive to communicate something of value to them. Offer a tip that they can use to simplify their workflow or increase their sales. Use this vehicle (email) to establish a rapport with your prospects, customers, to provide them with useful information that will enhance their business. This is one way you set yourself apart from the others and earn your prospects’ trust. It will also establish you and your business as the authority in your field.
