Sales promotion and e-mail marketing

Sales and e-mail marketing

Every entrepreneur faces sales. No matter what he is doing, if he is small, if he is large. He has to sell his services or products. You, as an entrepreneur can make jewelry, perhaps natural cosmetics. Alternatively, you can sell fruits, vegetables, cook marmalades, juices. Maybe you sew, write, translate, advise, or you are a coach. You may have a digital product. Whatever. You must sell products or services at the end. If you are large enough, you may have someone to do it better than you. Perhaps you are your own boss, and you have to do it yourself.

Do you have a store, studio, online store?

How are you getting customers?

It is also necessary to attract customers into the store.
Advertising? Expensive.

Flyers? Redundant paper.

From mouth to mouth? Great way.

Do you use e-mail marketing? Excellent!

Today, in the modern world, there are many other options. The Internet allows us a lot. Social networks like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest allow us not to spend too much on advertising. We have the option of choosing how much we spend. Unfortunately, Facebook’s algorithms are not working for the benefit of free publications recently, as a few people see them.

Gaining customers

The most effective way to get customers is to build your own database of followers. By creating an email list. That way, you will be followed by people who are interested in precisely what you are offering. For building a list, you need to have a platform that can operate with databases. I use GetResponse. This platform is user-friendly. To get the most out of the program, you have 90 days of free training, which deals with everything you need to know about email marketing.

Providers of e-mail marketing services
