Campaigner® Provides Prep Course on Back to School MarketingEmail marketing service offers tips on how to get an A+ on your Fall promotions (August 17, 2011)
The school bell is about to welcome back this years class, but while students enjoy the last days of summer, their parents are hurrying to find the best deals on school supplies. To gain a bigger share of the National Retail Federations projected $68.8 billion to be spent this back-to-school season, Campaigner®, an email marketing service provider brand from technology leader j2 Global Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: JCOM) that empowers companies to better attract and retain business through creative email marketing campaigns, offers the following refresher course:
Let history be your guide If you have demographics within your email list, use them to target your campaigns. Experience shows that shoppers with young kids are looking for crayons and lunchboxes, while teens want clothes and college students need laptops. Campaigner® can segment your list by historic buying patterns to match your subject line and product links to what the consumer is looking to buy. If you dont have this data already, start gathering it this year so you can target better next year.
Divide the high from the low With Campaigner, retailers can segment their customer lists based on typical order size. This can help you create targeted emails for low spenders, average spenders, and high spenders. Use these sub-lists to personalize offers for each group with the right incentives to entice them to fill their carts a bit fuller this year.
Dont forget your geography If youre near a college campus, sort your list by state or zip code to identify your customers that are from out of the area. Campaigners segmenting feature can target these students with ?move in specials for dorm room essentials and their parents for hotels and restaurants.
You best earn extra credit By using Campaigner to identify your most loyal customers, you can personalize campaigns to keep them up-to-date on your latest deals and offers. They will appreciate special treatment that lets them know how much you value their business. For example, you can include a loyalty promotion, like free shipping, or advance notice of your next sale.
