How many emails should you send out to your subscribers?

According to Direct Marketing Association’s National Client Email report, most marketers (35 percent) send two to three emails a month. Nine percent of marketers send six to eight emails a month, and 19 percent send just one email a month. Which one are you?

May I recommend looking into your competitors stats. Be nosy! Get into their business, no shame in this. No copying though, but heck ya who’s to blame you for checking out what works. Strategize and get to work for both you and what you love the most, your customers.

 Tips on how to set your frequency:

  • Encourage and engage with your existing customers to choose how many emails they wish to receive by giving them an option when they signup.
  • Pay attention and listen to metrics and your customers conversations.
  • Implement.

The harsh truth!!

Boxes are overflowing, be the life preserver and bring a smile to their day. Have fun!

Be honored, but careful not to take your subscribers for granted.  Go back to Marketing 101 – Customer Focus Marketing = Listening to the customers and tailoring the products and services to their demand. Avoid pushing what you want – it is all about your customers.

Last but not the least, time is more precious now than ever. Be that “pick me up” they may be needing. Offer a note in their box that they will be looking forward to and then push SEND and grow your business and relationships. Seeking and Connecting.

Transforming

Artificial Intelligence is transforming ERP Solutions

Yes ERP is inevitable, let me offer you some insight where ERP seems to be blending well with e-Commerce.

  • Improved Data Transfer

big data

You deploy your ERP system with accuracy and reliability in mind. However integration into your e-Commerce store is vital and if not properly implemented it can create fragmentation and customer information being removed or misplaced. Therefore it is recommended to fully – automate where data is taken from an ERP system in its original format and then you can of course convert this to an XML format. Then move this into a compatible e-Commerce with pre-established business rules.

  • The FAMOUS Cloud ERP

 Data.

Cloud ERP is a enormous server hosted by a third-party vendor which stores all the integrated data. A vendor charges upfront, with mostly no maintenance or upgrade costs. e-Commerce, an on-premise and cloud-based ERP solutions, but as we are seeing more than ever now a days the cloud ERP has increased due to its popularity of the third-party solutions.

Millennial Earthlings 

Millennials

Oh Yeah, Phone in Pockets!!! 

Millennials, a dynamic population sharing a defining characteristic, born early 80’s and the mid 90’s to early 2000’s. Growing up with social media as their best friend; trusting word – of – mouth hype. Needing immediate gratification, love customization to all their IT gadgets and living in the now all with the contemporary technology there is to offer today.

You may ask your-self, how do you market to this generation? Well, branding with this targeted audience in mind should consist of a trendy canvas online site with optimization of mobile viewing in which the Millennial can relate to and trust. Meeting in their spaces with organic two-way chats. Weight recommendation is Millennial 80% and You 20% through images and content marketing using the review sites such as Yelp is imperative.

It’s all about the experience to this generation, taking an Uber, discovering the new tune on a digital playlist and chilling out with a view. You will need to touch a chord through their receivers promoting your clients products by reaching into the Millennials hearts. Allowing an empowering emotion is your best bet. Being socially consciousness of your brand and its message especially on review sites and apps is another great way to catch the attention you want. Your graphic images shout. For example your Mac screams artistic and sensitive. Understanding this may not necessarily be true, but this vision via your graphic is driving consumption as much or more.

Go to the beat of the music, believe in word – of – mouth and engage!!

They are an amazing human!!!
