The Value of Permission Based Marketing

In my last post, I talked about how we, as marketers, have to provide value with our messages. As Rich commented on my last post, “New ad techniques try to provide added value to complement whatever you were already focused on.” Providing value is absolutely essential to an effective email campaign.

If you want your messages to be powerful, you have to make sure you send to the right people. As consumers, we all know how annoying receiving spam can be. When we receive unsolicited emails, we immediately ignore or trash the message. I know I personally use extra spam filters to make sure the message was sent by an actual human being.

While spam messages may make money for people selling fake Cialis, any legitimate business must send messages that avoid falling into a bulk folder. For this reason, I strongly recommend sending only permission-based email, aka opt-in email. An opt-in campaign requires your users to click a separate link to activate their subscription. This helps ensure your messages go out to the right people. Why waste time sending your emails to the wrong people?

Permission-based marketing ensures that your messages will reach a person’s in-box, not their bulk folder. It helps you build strong relationships with your customers. Most importantly, it helps you provide value along with your advertisement. I have found that permission-based emails can often be the key to converting a one-time customer into a lifetime product evangelizer.

Next time, I will show you how to conduct a permission-based campaign in five easy steps.
