  • Explain why it ’s so important, tell the story of Zaiwalla & Co. Met on 3-Nov-04 Few follow up calls to Jun-05. Email newsletters until Dec-07 .
  • Ideally you need to segment your audience. We think the three categories above are a good start. Larger firms might segment their customers into smaller groups based on the areas of law they practice.
  • Personalise your salutation. Everyone knows it’s a computer that’s doing it but at least you’ve acknowledged that you know who the recipient is. All of these are real examples that we’ve seen our clients do. The big problem is the quality of your data in your practice management and/or CRM system. We even have one client who’s PMS does not allow them to export email addresses without physical address data at the same time.
  • The importance of good subject lines in the email. Get the words “free” or “win” into the subject line. You need to be careful of words that spam filters are going to pick up on.
  • Must be consistent with your website and offline use of your brand. Get the important information at the top Get a name and preferably a photo into the design, make the newsletter come from “someone”
