  • Tagging 101 Here I have tagged Wember Inc in my message so that this message not only shows up on my wall but also to the Wember Inc. Wall. Also the tag becomes a link to that page’s wall. Steps: 1.Your PAGE must like the page you wish to tag prior to doing a tag. 2.Start typing your message and when you want to tag you use the “@” sign. So if you wanted to tag Stellar247 you would type @stellar247. 3.Once you start typing the @username the page you wish to tag will show up in the drop down menu. Select the page you want to tag. 4.Continue sharing your message as you normally would.Thursday, October 13, 2011

  • Email Marketing Common email-marketing rookie mistakes, including: • Not having permission • Confusing transactional emails with email marketing • Assuming people remember who you are • Writing like a used-car salesman • Ignoring campaign reportsThursday, October 13, 2011
  • Mistake: Assuming People Actually Want To Hear From You • They didnt specifically ask for emails from you. • Know that its different if someone sends one email directly to you, with a sales pitch. But when that same person crosses the line and "blasts" his sales pitch to an entire list of people, it quickly becomes spam. • If they know you, but they havent exactly opted-in for newsletters from you...Thursday, October 13, 2011
  • Mistake: Writing Like A Used Car Salesman Dont use pushy sales copy, like "BUY NOW!!!!" or "LIMITED TIME OFFER!!!" in email. Its obnoxious. Spam filters will penalize you for using what they consider "spammy" content. What flag’s a Spam filter: • Going crazy with exclamation points!!!!!! • USING ALL CAPS--ITS LIKE YELLING IN EMAIL. • Coloring fonts bright red or green • Using the word "test" in the subject line • Creating an HTML email that’s nothing but one big image, with little or no textThursday, October 13, 2011
  • Mistake: Ignoring Campaign Reports Check your email stats after every single campaign you send. Look for trends. Make changes to campaigns to see if you can improve your open rates, click rates, and most importantly, conversions. Whats the best day to send your emails? Whats the best time? How can slight adjustments to your template affect sales? Remember: Always be checking.Thursday, October 13, 2011
  • Mistake: Not Having Permission Email newsletters, coupons and promotions are considered marketing or commercial emails. If you send marketing email to a list of people without their permission, then youre sending unsolicited commercial email (UCE), otherwise known as spam. Understand where that line is drawn, because if you cross it, you can expect a call from the FTC for violating their CAN-SPAM law.Thursday, October 13, 2011
  • The CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 Never use deceptive headers, from-names, reply-tos, or subject lines. • You must always provide an unsubscribe link. • Remove recipients from your list within 10 business days. • The unsubscribe link must work for at least 30 days after sending. • You must include your physical mailing address in the email (PO Boxes are not sufficient).Thursday, October 13, 2011
