Automate Your Emails to Increase ROI
- customer satisfaction surveys X number of days after a purchase;
- tell-a-friend offers when customers becomes multibuyers; and
- customer reactivation emails. Instead of doing a query each time you want to send a reactivation message from your internal database and uploading a new list, just create it for X number of days/months/years and the message automatically goes out.
Of course, no new form of direct marketing should be done without testing. Test offers, creative and especially the timing of your messaging.
