How do I build my email and text messaging lists? Why is this important?
Your email and text messaging lists are valuable, long-term marketing assets. Why? Because they are a low cost, high response way to directly contact prospects and customers with special offers, discounts and informative content – forever. The objective is to keep in touch and build relationships with people so when they’re ready to buy, they think of you.
A recent consumer survey showed that 77% of customers prefer to receive permission-based promotions via email, with only 6% of customers preferring social media.
Does the LSM Program work with my offlline advertising?
Note: Offline advertising refers to your print ads, direct mail, flyers, radio and tv ads.
Absolutely. In fact, we encourage businesses to guide people to their websites with their offline promotions. For example, rather than just advertising a sale, you can advertise a discount coupon that is available on your website. The viewer signs up to your list to get the download link to the coupon. This approach gets people visiting your website, increases exposure to your brand and builds your email and text messaging lists.
Are there any additional costs? What about enhancing my program?
There are no additional costs with the LSM Program. There are several ways to enhance your marketing program including:
Lead Magnets – A lead magnet is something of value that is offered in exchange for personal information, usually an email address or phone number. Lead magnets don’t have to be expensive, but they must be something your target audience will find useful and valuable. Examples of popular lead magnets include discount coupons, special offers, ebooks, free consultations, checklists, “how to” sheets and infographics. Every small business should have a least one lead magnet for building their lists.
Popups, Floating Bars, etc. – These are commonly used to build your email list and feature some type of lead magnet. Some include a signup form while others link to a landing page with the signup form.
Landing Pages – A landing page is a single web page that appears as a result of clicking on a search engine result, advertisement, social media or email link. The objective of a landing page is to convert visitors into leads or online sales and they usually include a “clickable” call to action.
Videos – Videos are proven medium to increase customer engagement and improve search engine rankings. Small businesses can use videos for product or service demos, company overviews and customer testimonials.
Pay Per Click Ads – PPC ads can be targeted to your local area and/or specific search phrases. For the best results, you need a compelling offer that will drive traffic to your landing pages or online store.
Ad Retargetting – Facebook ads can be shown only to people who have shown interest in your company by visiting your website. Here is a detailed “how to” article: Target your Website Visitors with Facebook Ads. We can set up ad retargetting campaigns for you.
Participate in Social Media – Look for opportunities to share helpful information, provide an answers to questions, or suggest a solution to a problem. Social media participation increases your brand exposure and builds your reputation as a trustworthy expert. You can also join special interest groups in Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+.
