In this blog, I’m going to share with you one of the keys to successful email marketing campaigns.
This is something that a lot of business owners don’t do and by not doing it, they are missing out on a major opportunity to promote their business.

So what is this key to success? Well, its consistency.
If you are not sending regular emails to your contacts then you’re not going to be able to build a connection with them. The great thing about email marketing is that, unlike social media, you can talk personally to your contacts and share information that you know that they are interested in.
But if you are only sending out emails every 3 to 4 months or less then any initial connection that you had with your list will be lost.
By leaving it so long to get in contact with your subscribers, you will find that many people will have forgotten about you and will unsubscribe from your list. Remember that people subscribe because they are interested in what you have to offer.
You are therefore wasting a major marketing opportunity by not keeping in contact with those people on a regular basis.
So if you want to stay ahead of your competitors and build a list of people who are engaged with you and your business, you need to be consistent with your email marketing activities.
Send out an email at least once a month or ideally once a week if you can. Also ensure that your emails contain valuable content related to your services or products and aimed at your target market. By doing this, your contacts will start to look forward to receiving your emails and then when they are ready to buy, they will think of you first because you have spent the time building a relationship with them.
So now you know the essential key to a successful email marketing campaign.
