OnePageCRM Sales Talks: Email Marketing as Your Secret Sales Weapon

Peter Drucker once said, “What gets measured, gets managed.” We add, “What gets measured, gets a heck of a boost.” And that is especially true in the case of email marketing.

Email marketing has been around a long time. In fact, it dates back to 1978, when a man named Gary Thuerk who worked for Digital Equipment Corp sent his very first email blast to 400 recipients. This computer promotion resulted in a $13 million increase in sales. 

42 years later, email marketing is not only alive and kicking, but has evolved and became an integral part of marketing and sales. In 2019 alone, 293.6 billion emails were sent and received each day. And the figure is expected to increase to over 347.3 billion in 2022.

All-in one marketing providers like Mailchimp allow us to analyze and hone in on every aspect of our email campaigns. We can experiment and optimize elements like the subject line, the preview text, images, links, the best time for sending, and, of course, the content itself. All to find that winning formula for our particular business.

But with everyone doing it, how do you get that competitive edge? How do you turn it into not only your biggest marketing asset but a sales one as well? How can you reduce the time spent on email marketing but increase its impact? Well, we’ve got just the Sales Talk for you.

Carmel Granahan at OnePageCRM, will be joined by Danielle Desarzant, from Mailchimp, (an app that has been in the business for almost 20 years), to delve deeper into the world of email marketing and its secrets.

On Wednesday, August 12th, 2020, OnePageCRM hosted a Sales Talk on Email Marketing as your Secret Sales Weapon.
