Email marketing is one of the most effective ways for keeping in touch with customers and prospects alike. It also is unarguably one of the most effective forms of marketing that exist out there. There’s something so special about email marketing than other forms of marketing have not been able to match and that’s why if you are an entrepreneur and you currently do not put email marketing as a priority, you are simply leaving money on the table.
That being said, I know how hard it is to use email marketing. The pain of building a list, knowing what to write and the amount of time needed to put everything together can be discouraging. I’ve seen many entrepreneurs tell me that they’ll rather spend time building their followers on social media rather than spending time building an email list. I do not entirely agree with this strategy most especially because social media is a rented lot which means you do not have control over the data of the followers. Also, most people on social media are easily distracted by several other things vying for their attention on their timelines as opposed to when they open up your newsletter via email.
With all these obvious benefits of using email marketing, if peradventure, you are still dragging your feet because of the extra work you think you’ll have to do, I have good news for you that might help you decide to take a leap. Relike is an app developed by a French Startup, Ownpage and it has been said to be a great way to get started with Email Newsletters.
The app automatically extracts your latest Facebook post from your page and gives you the opportunity to convert that into an email marketing campaign within a few minutes. It also gives you the option of selecting your most popular posts or any other post of your choice. In addition, the app allows you to choose between several templates, create a database of email addresses including importing email addresses from other platforms and giving you the opportunity to choose the time and day you want to send out your posts. Now, I’, sure you are thinking, this is so good, what’s the price tag.
Interestingly, Relike is free if you send less than 2,000 emails per month and you only select basic features. You can get on the Relike website here for more information and let me know what you think.
