What is e-Marketing?

Essentially, e-marketing is all about keeping your existing customers 'on board' - with the word 'customers' in its broadest possible sense.

You can do this by emailing them regularly with an 'enewsletter' of tips, special offers and news - anything that will keep you in the mind of your customer.

The other great thing about enewsletters is that they are only received by people who want them - so its good to keep them interesting!

Krann Ltd offers a full enewsletter service. From setting up the subscription form on your website, adding your customer's emails to your subscriber database to writing articles and typesetting the newsletter itself - we can do it all!

Alternatively, maybe you want to do it yourself - that's OK,we offer that service too - simply log into our system, choose a template and start writing!

Why eNewsletters are a Good Thing

When the right offer or circumstances come along, you want your customer ready to buy - and if he's been receiving those emails which remind him you exist, he's more likely to buy from you than someone else.

Also, because he's been receiving the newsletters, he's already interested in you - if he loses interest, he will 'unsubscribe' from the list.

Your 'club' of customers

It helps if your customer identifies with your business - maybe you're a local shop, maybe he bought from you before and was impressed with the service. Maybe he heard that his favourite footballer had bought something from you a year ago...there's a million reasons for buying anything!

If he is interested enough in you to visit your website, then you need to do whatever you can to convert him from a casual one-off visitor to a member of your 'club' of customers.

Rewarding

If he signs up to your club, you need to reward him with something, and that is where e-marketing comes in - you reward him with information designed to help him make his buying decisions.

Messages about your business, its products and offers, plus tips on how to get the most out of the products you sell are exactly the sort of this which costs you little, but adds a great deal of value to purchasers (and would-be purchasers) of your products.

Large corporations such as the Post Office, Co-op Bank, Tescos etc. do this via magazines that are full of interesting articles about their business, without any obvious hard-sell in them. These magazines are there to keep the brand visible and to position the brand as one which represents a friendly, assistance-giving resource for the customer, helping them make their buying decisions rather than appearing to exploit them.

Any business can do it

Thanks to the internet, you don't have to be a large corporation to communicate with your customers.

An e-mailed newsletter is a colourful, branded piece of 'push' marketing which is only sent to those who request it – the user must 'opt in' to the free subscription service and 'opt out' if he doesn't want it.

So, this is not junk mail! This is mail the receiver has asked for, and the opportunity to unsubcribe from the list is always there.

 

Rolex expertise

For example, if Rolex were to release a new range of watches, a jeweller with a eNewsletter system in place could start writing about the lauch and promote his own 'See the New Rolex' event at his shop to customers who are already interested in what he sells.

Such an article would be exactly the sort of item someone interested in buying a Rolex might want to read before purchasing one. In some cases it might be a deciding factor.

If the jeweller can position himself as an expert on Rolex watches in this way, then the customer will be more likely to visit his shop when he is ready to buy.

Manage your Time and your Team

To effectively e-market, you need to be able to organise your time to create articles every month or so about your business - you will need to write about your products and services in a methodical way. You may already be doing this - perhaps you have an email list on Outlook Express which you send emails to from time to time.

This is good news, becase all you need now is a system that can turn this valuable content into a polished e-marketing management system that benefits both your business and its customers.
