Creating a Strong Relationship with Customers via Email

Oct 17th 2013 at 2:42 PM

When it comes to online marketing and advertising, there are many everyday tools that you can put to use for your business. In the last few years, technology has evolved by leaps and bounds, and business is not far behind. Companies who utilize as much technology as possible have, more often than not, the competitive edge over those that don’t.

The Web allows for so much more productivity and social connectedness between companies and businesses that it would be a huge mistake not to get in the mix as soon as possible. Every company, large or small, should have some kind of digital strategy in place.

At the least, businesses should have primary websites that serve as central hubs for all their online content. In addition to a main site, a company should also invest in subsidiary pages, like social media profiles, blogs, and SEO articles in the works. But these are just the baseline things that companies need to get competitive in the global marketplace—much more important is how you decide to take advantage of these useful tools.

One great thing about advertising online and online marketing is that you can be in permanent communication with your customers. Build your website and social media pages, so that customers can communicate with you directly. When this level of intimacy is established, you can achieve more customer loyalty than you could otherwise. Brand loyalty is extremely important in this day and age, and the good news is that it’s easier to cultivate than ever.

The Web is a great place to establish and reinforce a strong brand identity. By designing your primary website with a strong visual and tonal style, you can begin to create a web of content that all plays into a particular online personality. Everything from your logo to your font choices should be aligned behind the brand’s identity. Social media pages should also be in line with your main site. This uniformity will make customers feel like they know you, and lead them to reach out. Once customers reach out to you directly, you can start reciprocating.

Building an email list for customers who have gotten in touch with you is an excellent idea. Email is a great, personal way to communicate with customers and foster loyalty. You only want to email people who have reached out directly, and even then you should be careful.

A corrupted email can cause you a lot of trouble, so be on the lookout for the following:

  • Never open email attachments from addresses you don’t know, as they can contain viruses.
  • Never open any emails that look like spam, as these can lead to your own account getting hacked and sending out messages to your email lists. Something like this would look extremely unprofessional and hurt your customers’ opinion of you.

Be careful when using your company’s email address, as this can be a power tool for marketing. Put your email account to good use and make sure that you keep your email lists safe and sound.
