Email Campaigning Is Back On Track

05 April 2011 Written by 

I recently read about an online survey* carried out by Forrester Research about attitudes towards email marketing, and it’s pretty good news really. Consumers are actually reading promotional mails! The trend reveals that more people are likely to forward promotional mail than they would have done in the past. Also more people are likely to use their personal mail address to receive promotional materials than they had done in the past. A word of warning though, as the percentage of consumers likely to buy goods or services advertised has not risen, hovering at around 5% for the past four


I think this can only be a consequence of marketing mails being of a better quality than in the past. Blanket mails have been replaced by targeted mail campaigns. From personal experience I tend to only receive promotional mails from companies and campaigns that actually interest me. As a result, I read them and take the information on board. The fact that the sender has analysed and tailored the recipients list to pinpoint potential interest and ultimately sales makes such a mail campaign so much more valuable than a blanket mailout. It pays the reader a compliment by sending them information that is of value to them. As a result, in the bigger picture this increases the value of email marketing campaigns.

Earlier this week, we completed a minor release that will be bringing some exciting new features and enhancements to our customers’ systems over the coming weeks. You can find a little introduction to the two big ticket items over in our version release news story and further details will be available to all our customers in the release notes, published on our own customer portal. But I want to talk about one of the “minor” features that will be included in...

Business Efficiency –…

One of the main purposes of using a CRM is to promote your business efficiency – let you concentrate on running your business whilst the CRM takes care of processes and data management. Because of this, we are mindful that shortcuts and ease of use are keys to a successful CRM implementation and as a result we are always developing enhancements here and there to make the user experience that much slicker. As we prepare to launch the latest updates to...

Avoiding Holiday Chao…

Year end is here, hooray, you made it! But along with all the reporting and financial fun (not) that you have to tackle at this time of the year, there’s one more job that needs to be managed: the holiday rush. No, that the Christmas holiday rush, but the one where everyone suddenly remembers that they have a few days of holiday to use up and are desperate to organise “just a few days off.” In the last month of the financial year…and...

Being Part of the Com…

This can be a very difficult balance, do you do this just to gain some recognition or is a genuine effort to add something to your community or the place where you work? My son came to me recently as a coach of an under 8’s football team and asked if we would like to sponsor the kids with a new strip. After a short conversation, we decided that we would be delighted to and it would be a great thing...

Cloud storage is a big step towards streamlining your business. It allows you to store your client details and other information in a manner that is accessible from anywhere, at any time. You can build up a great web of data by interlinking Companies and Contacts with all manner of actions, sales details and support requests, helping you build a complete customer profile. Just like those clients, your own business is not a static entity - you are constantly evolving. Staff...

Having the Right Pers…

It is a common pitfall, especially in the tech industry, to assume that known tasks are therefore easy tasks. That just because you know how to do something (and that everyone in your office knows how to do the same thing), it is actually common knowledge. What do I mean by this? Let me give you an example: I was recently having a conversation with one of our developers about a new piece of software I wanted to introduce and had been...
