Posted by Sarah Wai on Dec 5, 2016 3:00:00 PM


Email marketing isn’t rocket science, but it also isn’t elementary addition. If you’re feeling lost and don’t know where to begin, we’ve got you covered.

The first thing you want to do is segment your contact lists. Initially, this will take quite a bit of time. However, once you set guidelines for segmenting, it becomes an automated process for future email sends.

Segmentation is one of the key elements to sending the right email to the right persona at the right time. This is not a step you want to skip.

5 Keys to Creating Emails You Would Actually Want to Read

Posted by Sarah Wai on Oct 24, 2016 8:30:00 AM


An email expert over at Hubspot once told me that, as marketers, we need to start marketing to people in the way we want to be marketed to. I could not agree more. When I start sifting through my emails first thing in the morning, the last thing I want to see is yet another email that brings absolutely no value to my day. I'm sure you think the same! So, why do businesses keep sending crappy (there really is no other word to describe them) emails that nobody wants to read?

If you are ready to put aside your old ways of viewing and implementing email marketing campaigns, you've come to the right place.

Email marketing can be a business's best friend. Keeping in touch with your customers and promoting special events and new product releases are just a few of the perks email marketing can provide. But that same medium of communication can quickly turn into a "frenemy" (you know, a friend/enemy).

Email is a powerful tool for communication employed by nearly everyone. It helps us stay connected with family, send friends cat videos, get offers from our favorite companies, and maybe even get notifications from our place of business. The fact that it’s so prevalent and easy to use, can lull us into a false sense of security, especially if you depend on it for business.

The Tuesday Tip: Marketing Advice at Your Fingertips

Posted by Corey Smith on Jan 27, 2014 5:18:00 PM


Last spring I was thinking about a key problem with small companies trying to do email marketing. I realized that most of the email campaigns companies attempt fail miserably. 

It’s amazing how often I get added to a newsletter list from a company that I don’t care to hear more about. Maybe it’s someone I know or maybe it’s someone I just met at one time. I know that the only reason the majority of the lists I get added to is because they found my email address or got my card at some point. (By the way, that’s illegal… just sayin’).

I unsubscribe from emails more often in a week than I can count. I find that so few emails I receive have any value to me at all.

So, last spring, as I was contemplating this, I had a hair brained idea. I thought, what if those emails were 100% educational? In fact, what if those emails were so selfless that there wasn’t even a “contact me” line or any sort of advertisement? What would happen?

What are Email Drip Campaigns?

Posted by Corey Smith on Sep 3, 2013 11:10:00 AM


Drip marketing campaigns (sometimes known as autoresponders) are not your traditional e-mail marketing campaign. Traditional e-mail marketing campaigns are built one message at a time and are sent to an ever-growing list of your business contacts. E-mail marketing is a great way to spread news and updates about your business to those interested in an easily distributed format. You don’t accrue costs the same way that you would with traditional mailers and have full control over how the end user will interact with your message.

The Rundown on Drip Marketing

Posted by Wally Narwhal on Jun 6, 2013 3:58:00 PM


Drip marketing isn’t your typical email marketing campaign. Unlike a regular email newsletter, drip marketing campaigns allow you to create a program to take your subscribers through. Drip campaigns traditionally run in either 12 or 24 email formats, however they can be of any length.

The primary differentiating factor of a drip marketing campaign from a traditional email campaign is that new subscribers to your list always start with the first email in the series, and not the most recent email as with traditional campaigns. This means that you have the ability to create a campaign once and utilize it as long as you would like, as long as you are updating your contact list with new email addresses.
