While newbie believes email marketing is not converting to leads easily like before, it does not mean is not effective.
The fact is that people now spend more time on social media and can connect to friend and businesses on social media and other channel better than email.
However, if you want to get better results with email marketing and outreach, there are important things to do to get results. This is not rocket science but a fact-based approach.
Set Your Own Goals
What do you want to achieve with the email marketing?
You must not neglect your own goals when looking at your customers. Moreover, it is of no use to you if you make your customer happy but don’t reach your goal yourself, e.g, selling your offer. Regardless of financial goals, you should always have other goals as well. E.g I really want my client to move forward and achieve their goals. It’s also important to me that this happens with methods that correspond to my value.
The point is that you listen to yourself and think carefully about your goals, desires, and values. You have to be absolutely clear about what you want to achieve in order to achieve it.
You should definitely take with you, “you and your customer” will only be satisfied in the long run if you act by your value and achieve your financial goals.
