However, leveling up your marketing strategies to compete with corporate giants is easier said than done — compared to small businesses, they have a lot more money and much bigger teams. So, how do you break through…

Marketing teams are continually searching for the perfect email cadence. Since audiences and industries vary, and consumers continue to adjust their expectations and preferences, this is a common question without a single definitive answer. However, it’s important to analyze because email workflows that aren’t optimized can miss opportunities to convert more, or even offend recipients.  If you send too many emails too quickly, your list and most internet service providers (ISPs) are more likely to…

Email is the lifeblood of e-commerce brands. Why? Because email marketing is one of the most engaging and (if planned well) cheapest marketing strategies out there.

An all too true marketing axiom is that it’s cheaper, faster, and easier to get business from an existing customer than to win a new customer. When subscribers aren’t engaging with your email, it’s essential to re-engage them before they’re gone for good. Not only will you lose business from those…

Let’s say you’re searching for a set of stainless steel mixing bowls on Amazon. As you’re about to check out, you see items that you’ve previously looked at — oven mitts with a llama pattern and a variety of non-stick baking pans. “Well,” you think to yourself, “my oven mitts are getting kind of old…and my baking pan is getting a little crusty…” So, you also add those items to your cart. The cycle goes on…

When it comes to businesses and dealing with customers, first impressions really do matter — so it’s no surprise that most companies consider the welcome email as one of the most important emails in the customer onboarding journey. However, many brands don’t go that extra mile to invest time in creating an automated onboarding email sequence, which is what distinguishes a good impression from a lasting one.  A New Way to Stay Engaged Let’s take…

In the Sex and the City movie, Big can’t find his own words to apologize to Carrie for jilting her at the altar, so he plagiarizes love letters from famous men to their paramours. While these missives helped win Carrie back, it was the simple, sweet letter from Big that actually swayed her — and it will be your original words that win over your customers and drive your holiday sales.
