5 tips for sending out newsletters this Christmas! Email Marketing, Tips & Tricks

Yes it is only November, but here at Toddle we believe in early planning – Here are our 5 tips to help you with your Christmas Newsletters!

Plan Ahead
There is no point in deciding in late December that you are going to send out a Christmas themed Newsletter – Plan ahead for best results. Gather together a list of items / offers / discounts that you would like to offer your customers.

Know the one that is one too many!
Yes it is Christmas and yes you can get away with sending more newsletters than normal – but remember don’t just send out a newsletter everyday for the sake of it. Try and do some research on when is the best time and day to send out newsletters. Also keep the content and offers relevant to your audience. The more relevant it is the more click-thru you will get!

Personalize your newsletters
Every company will send out a newsletter at Christmas – It is going to be a crowded market so you need something to make your newsletter stand out. Make sure to mention your customer by name and use content to make them feel special and wanted – “Welcome back John, here is a 10% discount”. Also don’t ignore your subject line. Remember your subject line will ultimately decide if your newsletter is opened or not. Think about your content and remember you need a call to action in every single newsletter. Make sure this call to action goes to the correct page on your website.

Limited time pricing
Lots of companies are now providing limited time pricing – “Order before 10th December for an extra discount” etc. End a sale on Christmas Eve or have a special New Years Day sale. This is a sure way of people actually opening your newsletter but also clicking through to make a purchase on your store.

Re-assure your Customers
Make sure to re-assure your customers that if they order from your website they will have their products delivered in time for Christmas. Make sure to mention your cut off point for last orders to ensure that they are delivered for Christmas. Also remember you might have international subscribers so take this into account. As well as creating a level of urgency with the last date of ordering, you are also giving a feeling of assurance to your Customers.

Rackspace fanatically supports start up business toddle.comRackspace recently completed a whitepaper about Toddle.com and the support they provide us with as our Cloud Hosting company and also as a participant on their Rackspace Start-Up Programme.

Recently we migrated both the toddle.com and toddlesms.com web applications to the Rackspace Cloud. We selected Rackspace for its unique up-time guarantee but also we wanted to give our customers a solution that is backed by Rackspace’s uptime SLA. This gives Toddle much greater credibility, particularly with larger clients and those running high profile campaigns.

Community Alert SMS Texting from ToddleSMS SMS Group Texting

ToddleSMS offers a Community Alert SMS Texting Service to allow you to communicate quickly and cheaply to people in your community. Community Alert SMS is proving very effective by having real time events such as robberies and suspicious activity, sent out via text message to community alert groups.

How it works
Once your group signs up to the ToddleSMS Community Alert Texting Service, you can submit the list of all your users and their numbers onto our system. We create your groups and assign a caller id that will appear on the phone when your text arrives. Most Community Alert Groups have one centralized phone which local people ring to report suspicious activity in their area. This information is then shared with local Gardai. If the Gardai deem that this information is of interest, then a text is immediately sent out to all people that have signed up to the Group Community Alert Scheme.

The Cost
ToddleSMS charge a flat fee of 2.2 cents per SMS sent regardless of what network you send the SMS message to.

How can I signup
If your local Community Alert Group is interested in signing up for ToddleSMS or even looking for information on how to setup a Community Alert SMS Group then please do not hesitate to contact us on info@toddle.com or 053 9102499 and we will only be too happy to discuss the options available to you.

Thank you for spamming me, buy my book! Email Newsletter Templates

After getting yet another email today with an SEO Proposal For High Ranking or Proposal to YourSite.com i suddenly realised these are a bunch of people telling me they have an interest and a business in SEO and link building.

That sounds like a target market for my new SEO book :)
So I set up a few auto replies in gmail to automatically send out this reply email newsletter outlining where they can grab a copy.
I will report on this experiment in a few weeks.

Perhaps there is money to be made from spammers!
Want to try it? Grab a copy of my email, replace links with amazon affiliate links and see if you can make money too…. evil laugh…
