YOU NEED A REASON TO WRITE – otherwise, there is no point.

It’s not the first, and it certainly won’t be the last time I say…

“It really does take 7 to 15 interactions with someone before we are willing to consider buying from you”

This makes keeping in touch really important, and a must for your Marketing Plan – and Email Marketing is perfect for this. But the thing is….

YOU NEED A REASON TO WRITE – otherwise, there is no point.

With Valentines Day around the corner, I’ve had some great emails from a various companies, linking a promotion to this date of “lurrrrve” in the calendar – such as gifts, clothing, dining and the list goes on. A great fit for those businesses to this occasion.

So… do you have a REASON to write, and a way to clock up those 7 to 15 interactions?

A reason to write might be:

– You have news or articles of interest to your ideal customer
– You’re the first in your industry to do **something**
– You have a new product or service to talk about
– You’ve won an award
– You’ve got some relevant events coming up.

And the list goes on.

Why not also link your communications to the calendar of events that are relevant to your industry? There is a National Day for just about everything… for example, in February alone there’s…..

– National Dog Biscuit Day
– Computer Security Day
– International Networking Week

Guaranteed, there is something tied to your industry, giving you a reason to write, and another communication on the journey to becoming a known and trusted source of support, help, products, services…….

So here’s a task:

Why not piece together a content calendar that links to important days in your industry’s diary for the next month? Pop it in your plan!

And finally, to demonstrate the points above…
