How to use Email Marketing to drive Social Engagement

The email can be amongst the most effective tools to deliver on digital marketing. In order to be most effective at it, it is important to include social share icons within the body of the mail.

Content that will be included in the mail must be shareable so that eventually it can get viral. Through this, exclusive offers must be advertised to consumers including discounts and giveaways to lure the customer. Periodic contests must be held to engage with the crowd and eventually crown the winners.

How to build Customer Trust through Content Marketing

Continuous research has established that content is amongst the best sources of digital marketing. While SEO takes time and persistence, PPC involves money. Social media marketing on the other hand, has a stop-start success rate. Thus content marketing must be worked on thoroughly by most firms, especially startups. The first step involves providing great, verifiable and authentic content. The content along with management team’s contact details must be visible on Google or business listing pages. Copywriters can always be heeded in order to get website indexed effectively on Google. The content must be of the highest quality possible. Publications written specifically to generate SEO or listicles produced purposefully for social media do not usually stand the test of time. The next step must involve building authenticity to give confidence to the customer to engage at transactional level now. In- house blogs or whitepapers could be key to this.
