Offer a contest and give the winner a quality prize that they can’t find elsewhere. Get your clients involved and this keeps them interested in your emails and products.
3. Limit the number of marketing messages you send out
Nobody wants hundreds of emails from you, advertising your products and services. Your clients want to receive quality emails from your company. Sending out too many emails or giving out too much advice makes your clients angry. Don’t give your clients the impression you only want their money. When sending out your newsletter limit the advertising you include. Give good quality information and keep the newsletter short and to the point.
Send one newsletter weekly to your clients. Do not send out advertising each day to your clients. With emails you want to build your customer loyalty and not scare them away. Keep your customer loyalty and trusting in your company. Send them a well crafted newsletter once a week introducing a new product or promotions for the week.

Your clients need to know you as a real person. Give them a sense of who you are in your newsletter each week. Add a little something personal in your newsletter talking about their favorite sports team, family, or an event that is taking place. Get your readers involved and ask them to write you back. Your goal is to create a bond between you and your clients. When the bonds created, your clients feel comfortable buying your products and reading your weekly newsletters. If your newsletters’ done correctly, many of your clients will look forward to receiving your newsletter each week.
