Effective email marketing campaigns for building relationships with prospects and customers
We Know What Works
What is Email Marketing…
Third party E-mail Marketing Services are essential tools in your Digital Marketing process. These marketing automation platforms enable the efficient management of your e-mail subscriber list and the ability to send e-mail campaigns to hundreds or thousands of recipients at once. While Image Market Inc. is experienced in working with many different E-mail Marketing Services, including Constant Contact and JangoMail, our preference is to work with the MailChimp platform.
Why You Need Email Marketing…
You absolutely need to have an E-mail Marketing Service account for managing your e-mail list otherwise you’ll be spending all of your time just managing your list instead of running your business. An E-mail Marketing Service provides tools to capture subscriber info and automatically add the info to your e-mail list. To be in compliance with the United States CAN-SPAM Act, your subscribers can easily edit their preferences, or unsubscribe anytime with the simple click of a mouse. One useful feature is the ability to send e-mail campaigns to a well-defined segment of your list using professionally designed e-mail templates. Another awesome feature is the ability to schedule your e-mail campaigns to automatically be sent weeks or months in advance. In summary, an E-mail Marketing Service does all of the dirty work and heavy lifting for you. The amount of time saved in not having to manually add, edit or delete subscriber e-mail addresses alone more than pays for the service.
