Is Email Advertisements A Business?

Oct 21, 2007
The wellness industry has a vast number of products for people to market and to sell. Trying to decide what is the best way to run your home business in the wellness industry can be a difficult decision. Let's face it; the majority of us have limited funding for advertising and marketing. A new home business takes time to grow and thrive to make us a substantial profit.

One method that many people use to advertise their wellness industry products is through email advertisements. This is a highly effective form of advertising that can bring in substantial profits for your business. The key is to effectively use the email advertisement campaign.

The first important thing to remember is that you do not want to spam people. Spam is sending out unsolicited emails to people in the form of advertisements or even with information. Some people think that they can send out informational articles and have a link at the bottom for their websites. If this type of email is done without the consent of the receiver, you are sending them spam. Even though you are not directly advertising to them, it is still spam and you can get into big trouble for this. Additionally, you will irritate potential customers.

Another method of email advertisement that people think is getting around the spam issue is to send a chatty letter and state in there that you hope you are not bothering the person. This again is spam or you would not need to even include a clause that you hope you are not bothering the person.

The third method to be careful of doing is invitations. Yes, invitations that are unsolicited are also a form of spam and a big source of irritation. You want to avoid spam at all costs.

Now that you know who to avoid spam, how do you go about email advertisement for your wellness industry products? You can have a spot on your ecommerce site that allows customers and web page visitors to sign up for promotional offers such as coupons, free gifts, and other items. This will be the customer specifically giving you permission to contact them by email advertisement. You will also be sending emails to people that are already interested in your products and services instead of wasting time on someone that is going to automatically delete your emails.

Another way to obtain email advertisement candidates is through purchasing email names. There are companies that will sell their data base of names to individuals. The emails are supposed to be for people that have agreed that they will receive promotional offers from other companies and from partners of a particular business. This is a terrific way to get the word out and use email for wellness industry products without spamming others.

Many people sign up for the paid to click emails. The costs for these types of email advertisements are relatively cheap. You are able to reach a targeted market that will view your website for a minimum period of time. There is a low buying ratio for paid to click email advertisements, but it will get the word out about your wellness industry products. The trick is to have a dynamic and interesting page that the paid to click email visitors will be sent to so that they are likely to purchase one of your items.
