You don’t need another blog post telling you how important building your email list is.
I’m willing to bet you’ve heard every marketing expert on planet earth tell you that email marketing is one of the first things, if not the first thing, you should spend your time and energy on.
This is information that you already know!
And you are savvy enough to be reading this blog so, yeah, I am assuming you understand the importance of email marketing.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s dive into a hidden benefit that no one seems to bring up.
Here’s the situation, using your autoresponder account here at Rocket Responder you will be setting up email series. In these series, you will communicate with your subscribers. You will be highlighting the benefits of you and your company while trying to build life time relationships with these subscribers.
So far so good…
What happens during these communications can lead to sales but let’s be honest, most emails you send won’t be opened. And our job as email marketers is to become better with those open rates.
However, like mentioned, most emails won’t be opened.
So one would ask, what’s the point of even sending emails at all, if we get 80-90% of these emails to not even be opened at all.
This is why…
Did you catch that?
By embracing email marketing we become top of mind to our customers.
First the bad news…You may get some people unsubscribing from your mailing lists if you stay in front of them continuously.
Here’s the good news…They more than likely wouldn’t have taken action on your emails anyways.
You see, the more you embrace staying in front of your subscribers the more you become top of mind. In a world where we are bombarded with thousands of piece of marketing messages competing for our attention, it just makes sense to be…In front of people as often as you can, as much as you can, everywhere you can.
A side note though…You MUST lead with value. So you are not just in people’s inboxes for the sake of being in their inbox. However delivering quality content, engaging your subscribers and providing value to your lists is always a good game plan.
The added bonus…You become top of mind in their eyes!
