Personal Emails – Why they will always matter

Marcus

Another Monday Morning Website Tip by Marcus Rangel

Isn’t email marketing great? 

You get to craft one message that goes to all of your client or prospects in one or two clicks. Have you set aside a day at least once a month to email your hitters or top clients directly?
 

One of the key things I’m doing is being proactive with how I run IMC.

Before I shot out the live chat feature to my email list, as my clients know, I sent them all a personal email on how I thought it would benefit them directly.
 

Did that take more time, you bet it did and it was so worth it!

Now, think about how many responses you would get by blasting out an email even if it’s a great feature or something people should take action on. Now think how many responses you would get if you emailed that idea with taking time to personalize it for that specific client. Which one do you think got more responses?
 

Email is such a powerful tool.

Don’t just get sucked into only sending blast emails out and forget to be personal and ultimately use email for what it was designed for, to have one on one messages instead of sending stuff through the mail! But if you do send something through the mail… well we’ll save that for another day.

P.S. A lot of people have asked me recently what it’s like to be my own boss and be on my own. I honestly love it – yeah I had to figure out my schedule for a couple of weeks to get it really defined (and figure out how to be a good science teacher at the same time to my daughter) but the work has been so much fun to get back into creating stuff – I’ve gotten to already so far shoot and edit videos, take photos, make websites, write for both email marketing and the web, work with some amazing clients… this pic kind of summed it up that my friend Kevin took of me while were doing a project in western KS coming down a giant grain elevator with what felt like 40 mph winds. I love it!

About Marcus Rangel

I've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.

I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.

When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Owasso, OK.

Where should you spend money on online advertising?

Facebook Ads, Google Ads and SEO may be where your head initially goes at when you think of spending money on online advertising. And although I would still recommend Google ads, there are 2 other strategies that are pretty standard if you were to ask me where to make sure they should head with spending money online: Retargeting and Email Marketing. Here’s why: Retargeting – bring people back. Did you know that those little ads that follow you around the internet asking you to come back to purchase that item you didn’t follow through with yet can be utilized on your site? That’s right, you don’t have to be selling those fresh new Jordan’s to get those ads to start working for your company for…

It’s the reason someone should “open your letter,” yet so many people don’t follow these simple steps to make sure their emails get opened. To make this fun and entertaining, let’s act as if we were writing subject lines for the 2020 reboot of the show Seinfeld… this should happen anyways, right? Let me give you a few examples and see which one you are more likely to open: Example 1: NBC show scheduleExample 2: NBC fall update…

What data should you look at with email marketing? Here’s the top 3.

With most of the country stuck at home and not able to go out they are turning to their phones and computers more and more… just look at your own screen time report and I bet you see an uptick (you may be a bit shocked like Chris Pratt in Parks and Rec). Here’s the 3 key stats to look at with your email marketing. Your email frequency. This actually isn’t a stat that your system is probably going to generate but if you just look at the dates to see how often you are sending emails out you should at least aim for once a week right now. If you are driving people to a webinar or offer and it’s timely stuff, aim for…
