Email Automation Guide for Small Business Part I:

Let’s look at setting up your email automation with the goal of making your email leads feel pampered when they sign up for your email updates, newsletters, etc.

Email automation is what takes care of welcoming your fresh new lead with a well written, goodie filled, email when they first sign up with your offer.

Keep in mind that most offers you present to your audience will include a free incentive that gives them something of good value with NOTHING asked from you in return.

This is where most business owners miss sales marketing on social media. They relentlessly post product after product asking audience members to buy, without giving them anything up front to build the relationship. You are going to be different, you are going to make your audience feel special and rewarded!

Now it is time to create your goodie. A treat that your online audience will want in return for giving you their email address.

You are going to have 2 major goals at this stage of email automation.

  1. To show your lead (customer) that they made a great decision trusting you with their email.
  2. Get them to engage with you by either making a purchase, following your social media links, or agreeing to take any other number of steps with you.

Bottom line; once an email address comes through, automation features will immediately respond with a warm welcome and the promised gift the lead signed up for. Welcome emails solidify your business brand as sincere, and make your workflow easier by getting your lead to take the next step with you.

Building the Lead List

Growing your business through email marketing automation is going to depend on the quality of leads you get from your online marketing efforts.

If you’re just starting out or your lead growth has stalled, you might be tempted to consider buying an email list. Don’t do it.

Your business will only grow when you nurture an email audience that recognizes you and your brand.

To grow a healthy list, you need to put your brand and business in front of them and lead with nothing but pure value up front.

Give them everything you got! Instead of showing them product after product, start researching their problems. When you have a full list of problems, create videos that showcase solutions, write blog posts, create free downloads, anything that will make them see that you care about them first, and want a sale later.

This is called a lead generation engine, and my best advice to creating one that works for you, is to think about what you would want and then create it for your audience.
