Top 10 tips to a successful email marketing campaign.
Are you trigger happy? Consider this...
Until recently, you had to sign up for this stuff. By giving up your email address you were making a conscious decision about a brand. Do I trust them? Are they responsible? Do I want to hear from them? But with social triggers, and increasing tie-ups between brands and social networks, access to your profile gets easier and easier.
There are huge consumer and business benefits from intelligent and timely trigger communication, but like other aspects of email marketing, it is easy to get carried away. Too many irrelevant emails, too frequent, wrong message, wrong target and you are going to wind up in the spam box.
