As you probably know creating a relationship with your customers and clients is huge in regards to creating a successful organization, off-line or on the web. People purchase from people they understand, like, and believe in.
So, it is important to develop a solid relationship with not only your customers, but your potential prospects also. When I consider the easiest method to build that relationship I usually tend to look back at building an opt-in e-mail list of prospects and customers.
Not only will creating a list help you build relationships, but it will also let you drive traffic towards your websites. So, it only makes sense to take a look at tips on how to easily build relationships with your prospective customers and clients by developing a responsive e-mail marketing list.
If you would like to develop a list you need a subscriber box on your blog. So, that is the very first thing you will want to do. An subscriber form will let you capture your customers name and e-mail address. Getting the subscriber box on your site is the very first step to building a list. Again, my suggestion is either Get Response or Aweber.
The next step would be to start your follow-up sequence so you can start selling your prospects. Your follow-up sequence should give attention to highlighting your products and services while building a relationship with your customers as well.
A good way to focus on your products and services would be to send testimonials and things of that nature to your list. Make sure that you make sure you’re building a relationship inside of those e-mails at the same time. So, do not make them hard sales. Make them conversational sales pieces that build relationships while doing so.
Do not make your e-mail strictly pitch e-mails, but also give fantastic information. As an added resource, it is HIGHLY recommended that all communication between you and your subscribers complies to the CAN-SPAM act of 2003.
Testing your e-mails is extremely important, and that is the last thing I want to discuss today. The last thing you would like to do is send an e-mail that has a link that is not clickable or insert a bad tag into the e-mail.
Imagine what your prospects think of you when you send an e-mail that refers to them as a tag instead of their name. It simply makes you look silly. That’s why it really is so important to ensure that you test your e-mails before you send them out. It only takes a couple of seconds and can save you from looking like an idiot if you just take this extra step.
One thing I regret when I started building my business as I did not begin to build my subscriber list. That is why if I could go back in a time machine and do it all once again I’d personally begin to build that list the very first day. So, be sure that you pay attention to building your list first and building your relationships second.
