Newsletters, Mail & SMS: how to improve your goals with them Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Newsletters, Mail & SMS: how to improve your goals with them June 5, 2009 Produced by
  • 2. The growth of newsletter and goals are the top priority • Email list growth is a top priority for 38% of email marketers in 2009, placing it ahead of integration of disparate systems with email, deliverability, coordinating marketing efforts with other channels, and lowering marketing costs. • The only things on the priority lists of more marketers are improving conversions and email relevance. Source:

  • 4. • Marketers new to email are more likely to have list growth as their top priority than those with more experience. For marketers with less than three years in email, list growth—along with improving conversions—is the most commonly cited priority. • Marketers with three or more years experience are more likely to be focused on segmentation and relevance. Source:
  • 5. Two factors contribute to the difference in marketers’ email program priorities. • First, email marketers with more experience have larger lists—a trend that holds true for both B2B and B2C marketers. They have already gone through the list building phase of their email program development which allows them to focus on optimization strategies. • Second, with experience comes the knowledge that building big lists is not necessarily the most effective way to drive increased conversions. Once critical mass is reached, optimizing the program through enhanced segmentation, relevancy, or integration may provide a smoother—and more successful—road. Source:
  • 6. What to do to improve your performance Survey respondents represent email marketers responsible for managing lists of less than 1,000 to over 2.5 million names. Marketers with large lists do three things more often than email marketers with smaller lists: 1) They diversify by leveraging a number of different list growth tactics 2) They track their sources of list growth 3) They evaluate their list sources frequently Source:

The new breeds of sms The ExactTarget Field Guide to SMS will help you determine which classification each type of text message belongs to*: • Alert: An opt-in SMS message that provides urgent, relevant information to a mobile subscriber (e.g. Fraud Alert from your bank). • Marketing: An opt-in SMS message that provides subscribers with a call to action for exclusive marketing deals, specials, or promotions. (e.g. Sweepstakes). • Update: An opt-in SMS message that provides convenient and timely—but not urgent—information to on-the-go subscribers (e.g. Daily News Headline). * All SMS messages must include an process that is similar to what some marketers call a“double opt-in.” With SMS, subscribers are required to opt-in, then confirm their opt-in using their mobile handsets.
