I’ve just given the only email marketing presentation at the Associations, Societies & Institutes Conference. It was good to see so many Adestra clients in the audience networking with their peers.
The focus of the presentation was to help attendees improve their email marketing to gain more delivered, opens, clicks and conversions. This was particularly relevant as most membership organisations see their members as an online community.
What struck me most at the event is how much associations benefit from using email marketing to keep in contact with their members.
They all have strong brands. These brands have real meaning to their audiences. In many cases, the members want to engage in a relationship based on using relevant messages.
Most people I spoke to report that their members are asking for relevant information to be sent to them on a regular basis. Perhaps more importantly, recipients are reading and responding to them.
Many marketers are experiencing first class responses to campaigns. It goes to show the positive impact a strong brand can have on your campaign performance. If you can increase the delivery, open, click and conversion rates of these already successful campaigns, you will see some significant benefits.
