Marketing Effectively in 2017

Marketing Effectively in 2017

An update from Albert Kaufman
Aloha,
 
For the past 9 years I’ve been teaching online marketing tactics. I n all that time one thing has not changed, email marketing still remains the best approach, hands down. Though many of us are addicted to Facebook (including yours truly), email is still, by far, the best way to reach people with your message. If you’re already using email marketing there are ways to do it better (better subject lines; using video in your marketing; autoresponders; doing A/B split testing, and more). If you’re marketing your precious business/effort/non-profit and not using email marketing you’re not using the most effective tool out there.
I see my role as helping you market better – if you’d like my help, please reach out to me. I focus on learning and using the best tools available to make the strongest impact in the least expensive way. 
Don’t wait any longer to boost your impact – let’s get started!

Hello,
If you’re a small business, non-profit, government organization or have a film or other project you’d like to promote, my upcoming classes on May 18th will go over the best tools to use for marketing – email marketing and social media.  I hope you’ll attend.  They’re free and I’ve been teaching small businesses how to market themselves for the past 8 years.  I’ll be teaching how to keep in touch with clients and customers and keep you top of mind all year long.
http://albertideation.com/coast to learn more and register for each class – here’s a little synopsis
On May 18th the morning class will go into why subject lines are so important and the features that go into writing great ones. If your material is not opened then noone will get to experience your greatness.  There are tools out there that can help with this.
After lunch I’ll go into autoresponders.  That’s probably my favorite topic of all as I’ve been creating autoresponder series since I learned about them last year. They’re a great way to help clients and customers learn about your business in a systematic way that benefits you (they are sent and forget) and your customers.
Please share this notice with someone you know whose business or effort could benefit from some marketing help.
Once again, please register for any class here: http://albertideation.com/coast
Thank you!

The Power of Your Many Inboxes

one in a million inboxesInboxes

Since the start of 2016 I’ve taught a class called The Power of the Inbox as part of Constant Contact’s celebration of having trained over 1 million people since they opened their doors. These classes focus on the value of email marketing and how to do it right. Some of the main points are getting a great subject line going; using mobile-friendly templates; sending from a recognizable email address – and so much more. To see a video of the class as a webinar, click here. Something interesting occurred to me as I’ve been teaching this class – the rise of the importance of your other inboxes! Email remains the key way to reach customers, clients, friends and family, and it turns out, you can’t neglect the communications coming via your Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter messaging systems (to name just 3).

A client, Gregg Harris (of Rooseveltpdx – a fantastic terrarium store on 44th and Hawthorne in Portland, Oregon, which made my top 11 list for 2015) said to me the other day “Albert, people are expecting me to respond to their communications on Facebook“. I am so fully busy in the on-line world that I’ve just taken it for granted that messages that come in via various platforms are “like” email, and so should be treated as such.  But, like Gregg, I tend to let many of those messages languish for days – especially messages from Twitter and LinkedIn.  I’m on Facebook so much that I tend to use their messenger at about the same rate of response as email, but Gregg’s woken me up to how I should be treating all on-line communications. And there’s a simple solution – notifications.

Within each social network is a way to be notified (via email, of course) when a message has come into your account. My recommendation would be to turn on any direct messages you get via Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter and see if any business or important information is coming your way.  I’ll do the same and I’ll keep you posted what I learn. Timing is often important in this instant gratification world. If a request for your services comes in through a channel you’re not monitoring, you may miss something important.  Let me know what you think in the comments below. Thanks for reading. Albert
