Last whole month I have been talking and researching some of the important aspects of any business company. And I got a serious yet interesting issue to discuss with you guys. Okay, let’s start with a small question answer session. Are you getting traffic on your website? How many of them are new and how many of them are your regular visitor to the website? How much time they are spending on your website? Oh, the list is long so I think I should stop here!
It’s been seen that people come to the site for once, and then they forget to come again. The term can be used as Traffic leak, as the company is unable to hold back their precious visitors. So, what we can do to hold the traffic so that they can remember where you are? This is where mailing lists really works. If you get their address, then, you may send regular mails so that you will be in contact with your customers, hence, they will keep visiting to your website. You can also share promotions and offers, and like this you can also build a great reputation.
Okay, now it’s time to elaborate some benefits of mailing lists that would create wonders to your business. Here we go…
The mailing lists can be helpful on the following facet:
High ROI
Latest studies have proved that Email marketing has an incredibly high return on investment (ROI). The studies give the evidence that email marketing has a much higher ROI than direct mail, telemarketing and many other outreach strategies. In an economy when most marketing efforts are being curtailed, spending on email marketing is increasing and has been giving fantastic results.
Converting Prospects
As I said on the introduction part also, mailing lists are the great line of attack to be in touch with your customers. Not all people are ready to make a purchase with your company on the first time they visit your website. Being connected with them through email newsletters and reminding them of your services with promotional emails and messages, would be great mode to convert many of those prospects down the road.
Expand your Business
Business is all about of chain. If one person like your product and services then it’s obvious that he will be spreading the feedback to other people also. This gives you a chance to build a good relationship with them and to show them that you will only provide them with quality products that can really help them. Once you have gained their trust, your subscribers will be more than happy to purchase the products you recommend.
Knowing your Audience
For any business, knowing the audience is the prime objective. When you stay in touch with your audience via email lists, you'll gain a much improved understanding of what they are interested in and what they respond best to. Providing them their needs, and getting their feedback helps a lot in understanding them. Applying this you'll be able to tailor your efforts to more specifically match the needs and desires of your market.
Statistics shows that people need exposure to a product a minimum of four or five times before they buy. But how to provide them exposure without any contacts! But when you have their name on your list, you have the opportunity to send them emails to remind then about you and your products/services. This is how a business lists can create wonders to your business. Though, its need a perfect care, but if you delivering well, then, you will be seeing the boom in your business which never happened before. Just try it!
