Email marketing - legal and ethical
Why use ListServ?
Well, because it works. Actually, works is an understatement. Based on our research over the past ten years, we see that regular use of ListServ can increase turnover by as much as 30 percent!
Ask yourself this: if you were using ListServ these past few years and had stored the email addresses of people who had enquired about your products / services, would your turnover not increase by 30% if you were today able to reach out to all those people to promote a new product / service or offer them a discount?
Of course it would.
Why does email marketing work?
- It is cost effective: while the cost of designing a newsletter can be comparable to direct mail, the big savings happen because there are no printing, postal or other overheads.
- It is immediate: email generates an immediate response. The majority of your recipients will view and respond to your email in the first 24-48 hours.
- It is relevant: ListServ makes it easy to segment subscribers using a variety of groups, so you can ensure that your message goes to the groups most likely to be interested in your offer.
- It is measurable: more than any other form of marketing, email can provide actionable data on the results it generates. You can keep track of how many of your messages were opened and when, what links were clicked and much more.
