Marketers Need to Think About Email Marketing Like a Magazine Subscription

I ran across this interesting article today, though slightly outdated, related to Facebook email -

5 Connected Marketing Tactics to Prepare for Facebook Messages.
As new email providers emerge (ISP based, non-ISP based, social network based...), marketers would be better suited to think about their subscribers like good ol' mailed magazine subscription subscribers.

Key points:

1.) Take a look at your subscriber list and see how many domain names are "facebook.com". My guess is probably not many so far but what about your customer segment? Is it likely many of your customers will soon wish to receive their marketing messages via Facebook instead of traditional email channels? Will they look at their Facebook email more often than their standard email. If the answer is yes, it would be a good idea to provide your opt-ed in customers w/ an option to switch their email address very easily. Send them an email if it looks their engagement has been low lately to make the switch. Never hurts to provide some kind of incentive as well. Remember those mailers you use to get in the mail to renew your subscription and receive 90% off the cover price?

2.) Most retailers have a Facebook fan page but haven't really been keeping it up to date. And if you don't have one, now is the time since email sent to a user's Facebook email may never make it there if you aren't in the users network due to privacy settings.


3.) Make sure the emails you send with promotions are updated on your Facebook page and always provide the option to "Like" your brand. And don't forget to send customers (existing and new) back to your website to either update their email address or "refresh" their email address to receive a free gift.

4.) Remember that whether a user adds you to their network or not, is a reflection of who that user is. They won't accept everyone just like you wouldn't sign up for every magazine subscription that comes along. Consider your Facebook fans to be your most valuable brand advocates yet! This means pay attention to what they are saying about you.

  9. The use of technology is becoming pervasive, both in the home and in the workplace. Because of this, technological expectations within the educational setting are increasing. Many of the students we see are being raised without knowing what it is like to be without computer access. Factors such as the wealth of information on the "Web" as well as presentation software products like PowerPoint are all transforming the educational system. Teachers are gaining proficiency in computer skills and demands by students and parents have made these new skills imperative. Planning for the needed training, the monetary investment, and for the specific methods of integrating compliance into the established educational system is necessary to make the most of those technologies.

  10. In a world of constantly changing technology, educators are working to bring that technology to students. Textbooks are just not able to keep up with technological advances. Teachers are able to help prepare their students for weblink and information they will encounter in life after they finish school by using integrated technology in the classrooms.

It was the chief source of obtaining food and clothing. In modern times, hunting refers to regulated and legal hunting. Hunted animals are referred to as game animals, which are usually large mammals or migratory birds. Hunting excludes the killing of non-game animals and domestic animals. Hunting toys for kids
