Data is marketer's best friend

Undoubtedly, data is an email marketer’s best friend. It gives you the highest returns on the lowest investment. But bad experiences with email marketing can make you wary of it. However, let not failures bow you down. Take total advantage of the benefits of email marketing. As the year 2014 approaches, have a relook at your email marketing strategy to do the same.

Understand what works for you. Do not imitate the strategy of another company. What worked for that company may not work for you. You need to know your audience well and strategize accordingly.

Evaluate your successes and failures of last year. Examine every aspect, from the “from” line to subject lines. Were all the elements in your email like the images, copy, calls to action, offers, etc. effective and did they bring you the desired results? If not, what went wrong? How can you rectify your weak areas?

Keep in touch with the industry trends and make sure that you have access to all vital information and statistics like what types of devices your subscribers use to open your emails, which links got the maximum clicks, which emails had highest conversion, time of day with best open rates, etc.

Before you revamp your email marketing strategy for the coming year, here is a quick look at some tips and statistics regarding data:
  • Get accurate and detailed data from people who want to hear from you, then automate the numerous steps involved in sending them relevant messages. (eMarketer)
  • One of the top benefits of e-mail marketing is that it yields reams of data about who a company’s best customers are. Marketers can target those people in the social realm and offer incentives or discounts to encourage them to share with their friends and advocate on behalf of the brand. (eMarketer)
  • There’s a Big Data disconnect. In a recent study from Econsultancy, 77% of marketers said purchase history had a very high impact on return on investment (ROI), meaning they are leveraging that data for lead nurture and to aid the buyer’s decision-making process. (Joel Book)
  • 7 in 10 people say they made use of a coupon or discount from a marketing email in the prior week. (2012 Blue Kangaroo Study)

Are you a happy email marketer?

Email marketing, in spite of all the skepticism attached to it, remains the marketing tool that fetches the maximum ROI. Sometimes playing by the rules gets you the desired results, but then driving the change and thinking out of the box can take you a long way.

Email marketing is an ever-evolving field. Keeping in touch with the changes is not an option but a necessity. However, email marketing can be sheer fun if you have the right mix of good data, dynamic email marketing software and effective pitches.

In spite of all the precautions you take, things can always go wrong.  But the best part is you can always learn from your mistakes. When you go wrong you need to change your strategy.
Here are a few pointers to keep in mind while dealing with issues that arise while you run an email campaign: 
Do not let spam give you sleepless nights
All you should do and can do is take necessary precautions against spamming. Beyond that it is not in your control. Ensure that you follow all rules to keep spam as low as possible

Bounce rate worrying you?
Managing this issue is very important. However, there is no need to panic. Get your mailing list appended or find out from your ISP why this is happening. A good data list will certainly help in lessening your bounce rate.

Get tech-savvy
Technical issues can pour water over all your efforts. All your days of work creating the right content and design go down the drain if there is no proper technical backing for it.  Not every one of us is tech savvy. But you can take the time out to learn about common errors that can spring up. These errors though small may be making a huge dent in your parameters. Little changes can make huge differences.

Let your creative juices flow
The right mix of text and visuals should do the trick. That way you have less chances of missing out on a particular kind of audience. Keep the subject line compelling.

Do not get carried away
Always remember to keep your mail relevant, concise and precise. An honest communication usually is more appealing and elicits response. Do not make lofty claims or proclamations. 

An email marketer has to learn to take all the trials and tribulations that come his way in the right spirit. Instead of giving up, you have to learn to manage the system to make it work for you. And it will!

Take the Clean Data path to Success

Your email deliverability success depends on your database cleanliness.  It is vital that you have the correct email addresses of the recipients you are trying to reach. If your database is ‘dirty’, it will inevitably mean failure. It is indispensable that you regularly clean and maintain your list to remove invalid addresses and improve your deliverability rates.

Elements of a dirty email list include:
  • Incorrectly formatted email addresses
  • Addresses that have previously “hard bounced”
  • Addresses that have previously unsubscribed but are still active in the list
  • Addresses from expired, invalid domains
You may be surprised to know that 75% of commercial businesses believe that they are losing as much as 73% of revenue due to poor data quality (Experian QAS) and Poor data quality costs US businesses more than $600 billion annually (Data Warehousing Institute).

List management is an ongoing procedure as people do not stay put. They move jobs, change their phone numbers and create new email addresses.  It is highly recommended that you keep your database updated with the latest information. These are few tips that will help you do just that:

Maintain consistent format. You should have consistent terms and formats across a given field. E.g. the date field: Ensure you maintain DD-MM-YYYY or MM-DD-YYYY throughout the database.
Do proper segmentation. Break down strings of data into multiple fields so you can more effectively standardize data elements with greater accuracy.
Verify content. Fields may appear populated but are not accurate (for example, a phone number may contain letters). Your data-cleansing process should identify and correct these anomalies so your data is fit for use.
Eliminate duplicates. Identify matches and eliminate duplicate records. These records cause unnecessary strain on your resources.
Do away with hard bounces. In the case of emails, even a few hard bounces will get your IP address blacklisted. Take extra precaution in this regard.

Email deliverability success relies completely upon clean lists. Prepackaged Marketing Data makes sure the lists are fresh, updated and always accurate. Contact us today.

Is your message relevant and readable?

You need to take some time to think and know the aim of your email campaign clearly before you begin to write. 

  • What topics would interest my audience?
  • What subject line would compel the readers to open and read your mail?
These are some of the pertinent factors to consider while framing your email. Instead of writing salesy subject lines, keep it relevant to the reader. Only include helpful information that serves the interests of your subscribers, not you! Before you begin to write, it helps to create a brief outline of the topics, with some ideas and notes to keep you on track. Include tags to tell you where to place buttons, images, etc, to help rough out your design.
Mark where to place call-to-action buttons such as “Sign up now”, “Download new version” or “New product information”. Use enough to be convenient, without being annoying. Strategically placed “action” buttons can make a big “dollar difference” in your campaign ROI!

Now, readability! Try to achieve a balance of color, images and text so nothing overwhelms the message as a whole. Half text and half images is a good ratio, but always use your best judgement and customize for every audience and type of message.

We know how challenging it can be to come up with fresh topics and ideas for every email. But there are things along the way to give you a solid head start. For example, you can create a list of potential topics that cross your path every day. If there’s any content attached, just cut and paste it and include the source or URL so you can verify the content. It doesn’t have to be original every time, just valuable to the reader.

Prepackaged Marketing Data specializes in database marketing. Along with making your emails relevant and readable it is vital to start off with the right database. Without the relevant database all your marketing efforts will go down the drain.To know more about our services, contact us.

12 Email Marketing Tips You Need to Know

We have put together some email marketing tips together for your ready reference. Hope it helps you with your marketing efforts.

  1. Do you want to help your bounce rate? Locate the emails that generated the high number of bounce-backs and investigate the source of the list.
  2. Comply with the guidelines in the federal CAN-SPAM legislation. Most importantly, make sure that all requests for removal from your mailing lists are honored.
  3. More people read emails that deal with their finances and travel than any other category. (Return Path)
  4. Desktop and smartphone email opens happens most often between 10am and 4pm—during the typical workday. (Harland Clarke)
  5. Recipients often only read the subject line or the first few lines of an email. Include your CTA early on in your email.
  6. Use autoresponders to automate simple, recurring emails. Since welcome and thank-you emails will be sent over and over again as you gain new subscribers and followers, they are perfect for testing the marketing automation waters. (Mastering the Art of Marketing Automation)
  7. Bold, beautiful imagery is slowly taking over our inboxes, as we take cues from Pinterest and social hubs like Facebook and Twitter. Images help tell your brand’s story, so consider taking the time to choose artful shots that complement your message. For B2B emails, think outside the realm of traditional stock photography to make your messages unique.
  8. The smart B2B marketers are personalizing their communication based on a prospect’s interests—using behavioral data and a whole new generation of online personalization technology.
  9. Start building your landing pages, forms, and email templates using industry-accepted best practices. Many automation providers offer implementation services that will walk you through creating these assets, from template design to the content included in each.
  10. Get accurate and detailed data from people who want to hear from you, then automate the numerous steps involved in sending them relevant messages. (eMarketer)
  11. One of the top benefits of e-mail marketing is that it yields reams of data about who a company’s best customers are. Marketers can target those people in the social realm and offer incentives or discounts to encourage them to share with their friends and advocate on behalf of the brand. (eMarketer)
  12. Email sharing is extremely important to any digital marketing campaign. It is important to include social sharing buttons at the top of your email. When the recipient clicks the share button, have the social post populated with interesting copy and a shortened link.

How to Win back the Customers you Lost

You have a 16% chance of selling to someone you never did business with before, a 50% chance of selling an existing client more products or services, and a 25% chance of reclaiming a lost account. The Brooks Group

And to top it, the cost to reengage your former customers is a fraction of what it costs to acquire a new customer. DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF NEGLECTING THIS SEGMENT OF YOUR CUSTOMER DATABASE. Unfortunately, about 50% of this database that was acquired with significant cost goes inactive. You must realize that this costs you substantially. The cost of acquiring new customers is higher; customer retention programs are definitely much more attractive. It is critical that you develop appropriate strategies to reengage these valuable lost customers.

Here are some strategies to win back your lost customers:
• Make an irresistible offer like a heavy discount or aggressive giveaway to lure people back
• Send out a survey to better understand their needs and preferences
• Deploy a message that gives them the option to opt out so that you’ll really know who is inactive

However, before you start employing these strategies, it is vital that you make sure that your message is sent to active email address accounts. No effort will generate any ROI if you don’t ensure this. More often than not, your inactive list is simply the result of sending your marketing campaigns to your customers’ inactive email addresses. So the critical step of any successful win-back program requires you to find the current preferred email addresses of your customers. Combine your best win-back strategy with a list of updated customer email addresses and reap the benefits.

Optimize success with accurate SAP Lists

There has been a call for better overall support from SAP for its products. UK & Ireland SAP User Group's annual survey found that users of SAP Business Suite and SAP Business Objects have expressed dissatisfaction with the service provided by the enterprise software company.

There has been a rapid growth in the number of companies opting to use SAP Business Objects as their analytics platform. It has increased from 7% in 2011 to 30% in 2013. Many want to integrate their core Business Suite software implementation with business Objects, however, lack of support from SAP is an issue. Many users have voiced out their frustration with the overall support provided by SAP for its products.

SAP has responded to this criticism by planning to implement a number of changes. "SAP takes feedback from our customers very seriously," said Pam Ireland, vice president, Analytics Customer Success, SAP.

'Do nots' of Email Marketing

It is not surprising that emails have become a nuisance for consumers. It is an expected outcome of excessive emails flooding every inbox and intruding into the uninvited space of an individual. Obviously, consumers are not charmed, in fact they are irritated. And this is a big cause of concern for marketers who see email campaigns as an affordable communication medium but are not sure about its effectiveness in the given scenario.

Therefore, it is most important to make sure that your email campaigns are effective and do not end up as spam or go unopened.

Following are some tips on what you should not do when it comes to your email marketing campaigns:

*Do not opt for mass mailing. Sending an email to multiple recipients at a time is not a great idea. This can only lead to spamming and should be avoided. You should try to achieve maximum personalization in your email. This is the only way to ensure that your mail stands out in the clutter and appears relevant to the receiver.

*Do not use incorrect information. Fake company name, email address, or other such information is a strict no-no, and tarnishes the reputation of your business for ever.

*Do not send an email without obtaining permission. You can land yourself in trouble by sending unwanted emails to anyone who has not given you his/her email address personally, or consented to receive mails from you.

*Do not ignore people who opt-out of your email list. Respect the opt-out request, and ensure that campaigns from your email address are not sent to that person.

*Do not send your email as an attachment: The receiver of your mail does not have the time to download or open an attachment. There are chances that the format maybe incompatible.

*Do not make it salesy: Nothing can be a bigger turn off than a mail that tries to impose something on the receiver. The mail should not be about you; rather it should benefit the receiver.

Email Campaign: Make the impossible possible

It is quite a challenge to make an email campaign successful. We are all quite aware of this. However it’s not an impossible task. Following are some tips to ensure that your emails are well received and opened:

Use a great subject line
Your subject line is the window to your mail, so make it very attractive. Be concise, to the point, and relevant. If you plan to send out same subject matter in multiple campaigns, create different subject lines that are similar to an extent but not exactly same. Your readers won’t open an email if they think they are getting the same email again, so avoid using the word ‘reminder’.            

Be Concise & Precise
Your readers are busy people and do not have the time or inclination to read long-winded emails, just like you. They don’t want to sit for hours to read your mail. Therefore, keep your mail interesting short and to the point.      

Let your website and social media speak for you
Make your website look professional, keep on updating it with great content. Create a campaign that has useful information and links to your website and social media. Similarly, your social media should contain links to your website; and all of these communications should create a channel of conversation between you and your market.

Add Quality to your Data

We cannot speak enough about the importance of quality data. We know that it is the foundation of your marketing effort. So here are some tips that will help you improve your data quality.

Audit is a must
Have a process in place to track your mail deliverability. It is vital to know which emails bounced back and update your database accordingly. This will help improve the effectiveness of your communication and overall planning in the long term.

Verify information at the start
Procure all required information when the contact is engaged. This is the right time to get information and make corrections if necessary.  This can be done through a web form, a telephone call, or even a live web chat. Incomplete information will hinder the work of your sales team. Ensure that you get all elements in the contact form filled.

Know your data inside out
Understand your data. Be on top of it. You should be able to identify data entry trends. Find out the sources of your bad data and eliminate it with right data verification and standardization processes. Tracking your mail deliverability will help you understanding your data quality challenges.

Get all involved
Get all departments involved in the data management process. As data quality leads to huge business benefits, this effort should be shared by all employees who capture, access, manipulate, and update CRM records. Look for tools that empower your staff to enhance data quality.

Refresh database
Data expires very quickly, especially in this fast-paced digital world. Regular database check-ups is therefore a must.

Find your footing in US Healthcare Sector

The healthcare system in US is very complex. It is a known fact that it spends more on healthcare than all other countries in the world. Efforts of the government to bring down this expenditure are showing almost negligent results. What is more, spending within America varies dramatically from one region to the other. Why is there such disparity in America’s prices and those of other rich countries? A new report from America’s Institute of Medicine (IOM) helps find the reasons behind the increase in the health expenditure in US.

A major perplexing factor is the geographic variation in spending. The Centres for Medicare and Medicare Services (CMS) sets a price for Medicare services, adjusted for various regional input costs. In contrast, private insurers negotiate payment rates with hospitals. The IOM reports that price mark-ups account for 70% of the variation in commercial spending.

The fee-for-service system, in which a doctor is paid more for each service he provides, is the leading problem for both Medicare and private insurers. As a doctor gets fee depending on the service rendered, he keeps finding reasons to provide more care and charge as much as possible.

Hope is now fixed on the Affordable Care Act or “Obamacare”. CMS is working towards making a shift from the fee-for-service system. However, it is a slow process. In the meantime, it would be really helpful if the people and the insurers took the effort to find the details about charges in different hospitals. The need of the hour is more transparency.

Are you looking for ways to find a footing in the strong and vibrant healthcare sector in US? Prepackaged Marketing Data's in-depth lists help healthcare marketers identify the most active, influential, and responsive hospital executives. Talk to us to know more.

Plan for your Email Marketing Success

Great news! The 80 year-old ban on general solicitation finally ends. Thanks to the JOBS Act! Now, companies can solicit investors and advertise that they’re raising capital legally. You will not be breaking the law if you seek funding or advertise your shares openly. What a welcome change! This will definitely help growing businesses in a big way by giving them the freedom to seek financing. A big boost to entrepreneurship indeed!

Just as we need the right conditions to make a business flourish, the same applies to having your email marketing efforts succeed. Getting your strategy right along with the right investment is essential. Before you begin an email campaign, proper planning is pertinent. Here are a few quick points to keep in mind:
  • The content should be of real interest and value to your audience
  • The design of the email is very important
  • Have a clear and defined purpose
  • Send mails according to the convenient time of your recipients, not yours

Respect your prospect's privacy

Email marketing loses its steam if it is not based on social data. After all, how can you aspire to achieve personalization of the highest possible kind unless you base it on your prospect’s interests, background and friend networks? The more data you have on him, the more you know him and what better way to know your prospect than through his social data.

Depending on your business goals you can segment your audience based on their behavioral data or profile information. And this audience segmentation would help you send highly targeted emails. However, to go ahead and do this segmentation it is vital that you are clear about your goals.

Businesses need to align their social data requests to their goals. For instance, a list-provider company that wants to launch a new list of dog breeders in Arkansas, has to do its data accumulation based on this requirement. The company should be very clear about their business goals from this launch and who would be its target.

It’s important that you do not get intrusive when you gather the data you require. Do not do the mistake of getting too personal. You should treat data collection as a mutual exchange. It is about respecting your prospects. Respect is key to successful data collection. As users share their information with you, your duty is to safeguard it and use it to provide value for them.

We at Prepackaged Marketing Data can help you find what you need. We have been doing it for years now.

Smart Marketing during uncertain times

The day definitely didn't begin on a high note for the US investors. The US Federal Reserve has refused to commit to reducing bond purchases this year, saying it is still concerned about the sluggishness of the economy. As a result, the US dollar fell to a seven-month low against major currencies and the price of gold rose more than 4 per cent. The economic growth forecast for the year 2014 remains quite low. However, 2015 is expected to witness a steep hike.

In the given scenario, marketers have to take measured steps to make their businesses succeed in such hostile environment. The first thing most businesses do is to cut down their marketing budget. However, that’s not such a good idea. Studies have shown that in previous economic slowdowns businesses that continued to invest in marketing saw growth in their businesses, while those that pull their budgets saw a decrease in sales.

There are low-cost and even no-cost ways to market your business during these tough financial times. Email marketing is one such way. It is a very cost-effective way of reaching out to your market and if done well, it can pay huge dividends. The investment in this form of marketing is minimal; however to ensure maximum output out of it it is always recommended to go in for a well-defined and relevant prepackaged list. And, this is definitely a low expenditure that can get high returns.This is as smart and as efficient as you can get during an economic slowdown.

Why buying email lists is a great idea

Some argue that purchasing email lists can mean disaster for your business and give very vague reasons to justify this declaration. Nothing could be further away from the truth.

The truth is that you need people to email, and you need them quickly. And there are people out there working for this requirement of yours for years. These are people who have made procuring these lists their business. So, just consider this, what will be better for your business – an in-house list made up in less time in an unprofessional manner or a list prepared by experts who are specialized in getting data exclusive and specific to an industry or a requirement?

Moreover, money matters! There is no denying the fact that buying a list is pretty cheaper than investing in an in-house team to collect data. And the mindset that 'costlier the better' is not really very smart thinking.
