Many small business owners have abandoned email marketing. Why? Because they think it doesn’t work anymore, they don’t want to bother their customers and prospects, or they’re focusing all of their energy on other online activities, such as social media. In reality, email marketing is not only still effective, it is one of the best ways to educate and convert your leads.

In this presentation, you will learn:
-The concept of building a Total Online Presence and treating your online marketing as an integrated system, vs. a series of one-off events – and where email marketing exists within this system
-How to choose the right email service provider
-How to build your email list and the best way to capture the greatest amount of email leads
-Email best practices, including how to get your email opened
-The difference between email campaigns and newsletters, and when to use each
-How to use auto-responders for automated follow-up
-How to integrate email marketing into your website, social media and other marketing activities as part of a lead generation and conversion machine.

  • 6. Converting Leads with Email Marketing Stop Spamming and Start Educating
  • 7. The  Email  Marke-ng  Myth   •  Email  marke-ng  is  old  fashioned   •  Social  media  has  replaced  email   •  Nobody  wants  to  receive  email   •  Email  marke-ng  is  dead  
  • 8. The  Email  Marke-ng  Reality   •  True:  People  are  more  sensi-ve  to  spam  &   unsolicited  email  than  ever  before   •  But:  With  inbound  and  content  marke-ng   (informing  &  educa-ng  vs.  selling  &   promo-ng),  opt-­‐in  email  is  a  powerful   conversion  tool   •  But  as  a  CONVERSION  vs.  LEAD   GENERATION  tool.  
  • 9. We  aren’t  talking  about…   Sending  Emails  to  a  Bought  List   of  Contacts  Who  Have  Never   Heard  of  You     (AKA  Lead  Genera-on)  
  • 10. We  are  talking  about     Using  Email  Marke-ng  to   Convert  Leads  Who  Have  Opted   In  to  Receive  Informa-on     (Lead  Nurturing  and  Conversion)  
  • 11. Why  Email  Marke-ng  “Doesn’t   Work”   •  Sending  one-­‐off  emails  to  a  bought/untested  list   •  Content  is  too  much  about  sales  and  not  enough   about  educa-on   •  Not  part  of  a  Total  Online  Presence  or  Inbound   Marke-ng  Plan   •  No  regular  newsleWer   •  Don’t  send  email  at  all  –  Replace  with  social  media  
  • 12.
