Create a strong Opt-In form presence on your Website o Build an opt-in form on your Home page, the About Us page and in your Checkout process (If you sell products online) o The less information you require to opt-in, the more sign ups you will receive o You get better results if you offer a reward or bonus for providing email address 3.

  5. 5. List Building Systems: Jigsaw What is it? • Jigsaw is an online directory of decision makers and business contacts targeted especially at sales and marketing professionals who need to locate specific contact information on decision makers at accounts they are looking to target. How do you locate business contacts? • Before you start out locating contacts you need points in your account which works as credit. You can either earn points by contributing data that you already have or simply buy credits for money. What are the pros of Jigsaw as a business contacts service? • The Jigsaw database has accumulated over 9 million contacts with a large range of contacts at almost all levels of an organization from executives to those at a deeper level which makes it one of the larger databases of its kind and provides a great source for contact information What are the cons of Jigsaw as a business contacts source? • Since the data is not added by the contact themselves, updates don’t reflect in the data when people have moved from their positions or companies
  6. 6. List Building Systems: LinkedIn What is it? • LinkedIn is an online business network built to connect business professionals much like social networking sites such as Facebook.com, Orcut.com & Bebo which are a network of friends and social relationships. How do you locate business contacts? • Once you have built your network by adding connections you can search through your network of contacts by various criteria such as company name, location, industry, keywords, contact names, titles and so on. What are the pros of LinkedIn as a business contacts service? • Sign up and setup is free, you can get started and build a business network of contacts over some time without any upfront investment. What are the cons of LinkedIn as a business contacts service? • Linkedin profiles don’t provide complete contact information such as postal addresses, phone numbers and email id’s. So it may not be as well suited as a direct information source to run direct mail, telemarketing or email campaigns
  7. 7. Email Marketing: CAN-SPAM Act Compliance What is CAN-SPAM? • Law the sets the rules for commercial email, gives recipients the right to have you stop emailing them and spells out tough penalties for violations. Main Requirements of CAN-SPAM • Don’t use false or misleading header information • Don’t use deceptive subject lines • Identify the message as an ad • Tell recipients where you are located • Tell the recipients how to opt out of receiving future email from you • Honor opt-out requests promptly • Monitor what others are doing on your behalf
  8. 8. Email Marketing: Mailing Service Providers Here is a short list of some of the more well known providers: • Constant Contact • iContact • MailChimp • Vertical Response • Campaigner • Boomerang • Benchmark • Stream Send
