Now, 7 ways to use it effectively and get the most bang for your buck, so to speak.<br><br>1. Make sure your emails will get past the spam filters! Certain keywords, for instance, trigger a spam alert that can get your marketing email delegated to the spam folder or actually deleted before the recipient ever even sees it. Here are just a few of the biggies that will ring a warning bell with a spam blocker: free, clearance, money, save big money, incredible deal, bargain, cash, cheap and many more of that ilk. <br><br>2. Make it quick and easy for email recipients to take action---the desired action that you want them to take, that is. Be sure that your marketing emails load fast and that the subject line and the message of the email match. <br><br>3. Have a strong, clear call to action. Tell your email readers exactly what it is you want them to do. Have a clickable button that will allow them to take the desired action on the spot. There is no substitute for a good call to action!<br><br>4. Have a specified landing page geared to the specific marketing email. Don’t have subscribers click through and land on a page asking for all sorts of information. Don’t send them to your home page. Instead, have a particular landing page designed to complement the message and/or offer in your marketing email.<br><br>5. Try A/B testing. This means sending two different versions of a marketing email and then tracking results as to open rates, click throughs, purchases. This way , you can gain valuable insights into which marketing emails work the best for you.<br><br>6. Keep your main offer or promotion above the fold. This means on the top half of the page. This way, you can hopefully engage a viewer’s attention right off the bat and keep them reading.<br><br>7. Constantly work to beef up your email opt-in subscription list. Offer a nice freebie such as free or half price shipping, give freebies or promotions for referrals, have the opt-in form on several different web pages on your dropshipping site.<br><br>Use these 7 tips to use email marketing effectively for your dropship business and watch your sales soar skyward!<p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98844/7-Ways-to-Use-eMail-Marketing-Effectively-for-a-Dropship-Business&bvt=rss">Greg ScottSun, 07 Jul 2013 00:40:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:98844http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98561/6-eMail-Marketing-Tips-for-Your-Home-Dropshipping-Business#Comments06 eMail Marketing Tips for Your Home Dropshipping Businesshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98561/6-eMail-Marketing-Tips-for-Your-Home-Dropshipping-Business<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/emailicon.jpg" alt="email marketing dropshipping business" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">If you have a home <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping" target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong></a> business, email marketing can help boost sales, so you might be glad to get a few useful tips for best practices that will ensure your emails get the best results possible.<br><br>First of all, let’s establish that email marketing is extremely effective. Many ecommerce entrepreneurs use email marketing for that very reason. Another great point about email marketing is that you can write them yourself if you feel competent. If you don’t feel that your writing skills are up to snuff, don’t attempt to write your marketing emails yourself. Instead, hire someone to do it for you. <br><br>Why? <br><br>Because sending people ungrammatical. Misspelled, poorly written emails would be worse than sending nothing. Your dropshipping business would come across as shoddy and second rate. You don’t want that. So, if you can’t write them well, don’t write them at all and get a freelancer.<br><br>Now, moving on to the tips for better marketing emails to build your dropshipping business, here they are:<br><br> <ul> <li>Be sure your marketing emails are compatible with mobile devices. More and more internet users use their mobile devices to access the web and read emails. If your emails aren’t compatible with an iPhone, iPad or other mobile device, many of them won’t be read.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Use social media to drive your email marketing campaigns. By linking to social channels in emails, you ensure a wider audience.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Keep it simple. Your marketing emails should forego bells and whistles and go straight to the heart of the matter. Forget graphics and other distractions. Stick to a single column format for best results.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Forget using too much sales hype. But, isn’t that the whole purpose of marketing emails---to boost sales in your dropshipping business? Yes. However, people are tired of being bombarded by too much salesy content. So, try to go at things from an educational or informative approach rather than sales pitches. For example, if your dropshipping product is camping equipment and you have a new product such as an easy to set up camp shower; let your email tell the benefits to the reader of using the new camp shower instead of just trying to sell it.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Instead of mass mailing, move toward segmented, targeted marketing emails. This is where tracking and analyzing on your dropshipping website can come in extra handy. Keep up with who buys what and then target special promotions and emails especially for that group. For example, let’s say that you dropship outdoor products and have a group of customers who have bought boating supplies. You would target your emails to this group with promotions and emails about boating supplies and related products.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Don’t just ask for email opt-in subscriptions on the checkout or confirmation page or on your home page. Scatter them throughout your site but stay below the fold, which means on the bottom half of the web page. The top half should be focused on the products and the sale.</li> </ul> <br>Use these email marketing tips to boost sales in your home dropshipping business!<p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98561/6-eMail-Marketing-Tips-for-Your-Home-Dropshipping-Business&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeThu, 27 Jun 2013 19:41:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:98561http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98418/Free-Marketing-Tools-for-Your-Online-Home-Dropshipping-Business#Comments0Free Marketing Tools for Your Online Home Dropshipping Businesshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98418/Free-Marketing-Tools-for-Your-Online-Home-Dropshipping-Business<br><img id="img-1372004799778" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/Character-with-Toolbox-resized-600.jpg" alt="marketing tools dropshipping" class="alignCenter" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" border="0"><br>One thing is for sure if you have an online home <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping" target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong></a> business---you have to engage in marketing to keep traffic and sales flowing, so a few FREE tools to help you market your business might come in handy.<br><br>Marketing is crucial to the success or failure of your dropshipping business.

If you fail to market and promote your online dropship home business, it will not be as successful as it could be---plain and simple.<br><br>Here are 6 free ways to market your dropship business:<br><br>I. Use content to market your dropship business by creating how-to pages on Wikihow or Ask.com. Of course, they need to be relevant to your dropship niche. If you are dropshipping lingerie, for instance, you might create an informative page that explains how to measure and purchase the correct bra size. This content will not only help you in Google search ranking, but also assist in setting you up as an authority within your dropship niche. <br><br>II. Start a business blog. Don’t go too heavy on the sales hype. Readers don’t like that and neither does Google and the other search engines. Instead, keep the content informative and interesting, making sure it correlates and is relevant to your niche. For example, if you dropship boating and water fun products, your content could be about all sorts of current news that pertains to these things.<br><br>III. Make a video. YouTube is extremely popular. In fact, videos of any kind are popular with online users, so produce one or more instructional or educational videos that are relevant to your dropship niche. You don’t need to be a Hollywood producer to create a good marketing video. Any video camera will do, or even a digital camera that will record for a few minutes. Don’t be afraid to inject a bit of humor into your marketing videos as these are the ones that are prone to go viral.<br><br>IV. Harness the power of social media through such sites as Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. To give you an idea of how very popular Facebook is, there are currently 1.11 billion members. Just imagine how effectively you could market your dropship business on that site if you connected with a teeny fraction of users! Twitter is also hot, as is Pinterest.<br><br>V. Make sure that all of your pages have unique HTML page titles. Meta tags are still a basic and quite important element of best SEO practices, so don’t overlook them.<br><br>VI. Use press releases to market your dropship business. You can pay for press release services, but there are several good free ones, such as<a href="http://www.24-7pressrelease.com/" title=" 24-7 Press Release" target="_blank"> 24-7 Press Release</a>. Naturally, you want to make your press releases relevant to your dropship niche. If you don’t know the proper way to write a press release, not to worry, it isn’t difficult and you can find plenty of free help online to show you a step by step process. <br><br>Use these 6 free ways to market your home dropship business and you might be surprised at how your sales will take off!<br><br><br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97520/6-FREE-Ways-to-Market-Your-Online-Dropship-Home-Business&bvt=rss">J.

The more people who agree to receive your emails, the better off you are because you will be reaching out to a larger audience.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be sure to include some sort of deal or promotion, or failing that; announce a new product you think your subscribers will be interested in hearing about. Remember that your subscribers, like just about everybody else on the internet, are bombarded with emails every day of the week. So, make sure you send emails that are of value in some way so that you don’t lose subscribers.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Make your subject line as catchy as possible. It needs a good hook, which means it needs to sound intriguing enough that your readers will be “hooked” and will open and read it. This is vitally important, so make it a priority.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be sure to include the main message of your marketing email above the fold, or on the top half of the page. This is where it is most likely to be seen and keep people reading. Without this, your readers may gravitate away without reading all of your email.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Always address your recipients by name in marketing emails. This is a great way to connect with your customers and subscribers in a more personalized way.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Branding is important to your ecommerce dropship business and you should use it in your email marketing campaigns. If you have a logo, be sure to display it prominently at the top of the page so that people will recognize the email as coming from you.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>How much is too much? As a rule, don’t deluge your subscribers with spammy emails. This is bad PR and will come back to bite you in the derriere if you aren’t careful.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be sure to give your subscribers plenty of advance notice for your big holiday promotions and other great deals.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>The flip side of that coin is to send a time sensitive offer from time to time that will be more likely to get action in a hurry. For example, you can offer free shipping for one day only or a similar incentive.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>If there is one thing you definitely don’t want to overlook, it’s to make sure your email marketing messages are mobile device friendly. More and more people are using their mobiles for reading emails, shopping and everything else online, so you need emails that are compatible.</li> </ul> <br>Using email marketing to grow and build your home dropship business is a smart move!<br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/95824/Use-Email-Marketing-to-Grow-Your-Home-Dropship-Business&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeFri, 05 Apr 2013 17:39:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:95824http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/95735/How-to-Build-Your-Home-Dropship-Business-With-Video-Marketing#Comments0How to Build Your Home Dropship Business With Video Marketinghttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/95735/How-to-Build-Your-Home-Dropship-Business-With-Video-Marketing<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/youtubeicon-resized-600.jpg" alt="dropship business video marketing" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Did you know that you can build your home <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> business with video marketing?<br><br>Video marketing is an excellent and cost effective way to build and grow your home ecommerce dropship business. Videos are hot and almost all internet users enjoy watching them. This can be of great advantage to an ecommerce entrepreneur!<br><br>If you aren’t entirely sure what video marketing is, a simple explanation is to say that it is marketing using videos. Fairly self explanatory, really, as it actually is exactly what it sounds like.<br><br><strong>Video Marketing Tips</strong><br><br>Here are some helpful ways to use video marketing to build your brand and increase sales for your online dropship business:<br><br> <ul> <li>How to videos are hugely successful. If you can do video marketing with some handy “how to” tips and tricks for your audience, you have a fair shot at gaining a large number of viewers.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Use humor in your video marketing. People like and respond well to humor. If you can make someone smile or laugh, they are more apt to like you and research has shown that in sales, people tend to buy from those they like. So, be likable with a funny video and make more sales.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Don’t be too salesy. This is a big mistake.

Use Email Marketing---Email marketing is an excellent, and low cost, way to get your message out there to consumers. Actively work on building your opt-in subscription list so that you have plenty of people to send your marketing emails to and drive traffic to your dropship business. If necessary, offer a small incentive for opting-in. You might give half price shipping on a future purchase or something along that line. The idea is to make the idea of joining your subscrip0tion list appealing.<br><br>3. Provide Excellent Customer Service---One of the smartest moves you can make to market your ecommerce dropship business is to provide exemplary customer service. This won’t cost you a dime!

As more and more people are acquiring mobile devices such as these, they are using them to browse and shop on the internet.<br><br>If you want to maintain a competitive edge within your niche, it is imperative that you make sure your dropship business website or listings are mobile device friendly, meaning that those who are shopping by way of their mobiles can access your products.<br><br>Failure to do this will result in the loss of a lot of sales for your home business!<br><br> <h3><span style="color: #339966;"><strong>Mobile Marketing</strong></span></h3> <br>With the swift popularity of shopping on mobile devices comes the need to use mobile marketing techniques, or marketing geared specifically to mobile device users.<br><br>Here are 7 helpful tips to get you off to good start with mobile marketing:<br><br> <ul> <li>When using multimedia to offer coupons, deals and promotions, be sure to assign a promo code to each coupon in order to track who is using what.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be careful about over texting! Even though most online shoppers appreciate promotions and coupons, you don’t want to bombard them with a barrage of texts, no matter what deals you are offering. This is a good way to get yourself blocked. Ouch! You also, by law, must offer an opt-out.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Test various mobile devices to make sure your mobile website and browser is functioning properly. If it isn’t, you can lose a lot of potential customers.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Use QR codes to interact with shoppers and show them your products, deals, etc. A QR code, or Quick Response code, is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode that can be scanned with a mobile device. Originally designed in Japan for the automotive industry, its patent holder has generously declined to exercise the patent rights so we can all use QR codes. There are free QR code generators available online.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Use a quiz, poll or survey that mobile device users can easily answer as a way of engaging with them and also to gain insight into what they think and feel, as well as their buying and shopping habits.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>As with so many other things in life, timing is important. Research and surveys have shown that mobile devices are used most between 12:00 pm and 6:00 pm. While it might depend on the product to some extent, generally speaking the best time to send a marketing campaign is mid to late afternoon.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>When you want a response, go with SMS instead of emails. Research says that only about 25% of emails are opened, as compared to 95% of text messages. Big difference, huh? Also, text messages usually get a response much faster, within an hour on average.</li> </ul> <br>Mobile marketing can help your dropship business be successful, so if you aren’t already using it---start today!<br><br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/92751/7-Tips-to-Improve-Mobile-Marketing-for-Your-Dropship-Business&bvt=rss">J.

Black Hat SEO:</strong> Unfortunately, Black Hat SEO and article farming are still alive and kicking, although with not quite the same strength and energy as before the Google Penguin and Panda updates to the search algorithm. There are ecommerce entrepreneurs still using these marketing tactics, but we’ll see less and less of them as time goes on because Google is methodically weeding them out. What this means is that you should not, under any circumstances, stuff and cram your content with keywords for the sole purpose of boosting your rankings in search results. <br><br>Actually, doing this will have the opposite effect---you’ll not only get sent to the bottom of the pile in SERPs, you’ll probably be blacklisted for good by Google. If this happens, you are done for in ecommerce. Period. Don’t do this. The same holds true for article farming, which is the practice of hiring usually third world writers to churn out tons of ungrammatical, nonsensical and very poorly written articles crammed with keywords to get a boost in search results. Same results as Black Hat SEO and basically, part and parcel of the same. Don’t do this, either.<br><br><strong>II. Link Farming:</strong> No, no, a thousand times no! If you are unfamiliar with link farming, that’s a good thing since it means you probably aren’t guilty of it. But, just in case you may run across this tactic someday and think it seems like a perfectly splendid idea; here’s what it means:<br><br>Link farming is the practice of setting up scads, even hundreds, of little blogs or websites for the sole purpose of linking back to your dropship website. Why would anyone do this? Because in theory, Google rewards sites with lots of back links with a boost in search engine results. In practice, however, this is true only if the links are high quality sites. If they’re nothing but ghost sites---dummies, if you will---whose only reason for living is to provide links to your reshipping website, Google will catch on PDQ and instead of rewarding you; will penalize you severely. Ouch. Don’t do this.<br><br><strong>III. Cherry Blossoming:</strong> If you haven’t heard of this term, what it means is buying fans and followers on face book and Twitter, along with whatever other social sites you frequent for marketing purposes. This term originated in Japan, where little know celebrities, businesses and even sports teams paid people to like or follow them in order to accrue real friends and followers and thus, score points with the search engines such as Google. These professional fans are called Cherry Blossoms. Some Cherry Blossoms are bot generated accounts created for the one and only purpose of giving a company or person more social media clout. Honestly, it usually doesn’t work that way because there will be little or no interaction with Cherry Blossoms and the search engines have an uncanny knack of figuring this out. Don’t do this.<br><br>There you have three of the things NOT to do in ecommerce marketing for your dropship business!

You can learn and utilize the basics of marketing for your online drop shipping business and be able to increase traffic and sales, which will mean more profits for you.<br /><br /><strong>The Importance of Marketing</strong><br /><br />Your online drop shipping business will only be successful if people find it. You might have the best products at the lowest prices, but if nobody finds your products, it won&rsquo;t do you any good because you won&rsquo;t make sales. So, using marketing strategies and techniques effectively will go a long way toward making sure shoppers who are looking for the products you are selling can find them---and you, specifically. This is what will make or break your online drop shipping business.<br /><br />Here are some tips on marketing strategies that may help build your online drop shipping business:<br /><br /></p> <ul> <li>Use email marketing---Email marketing can be tremendously effective, so be sure to ask visitors to your site to sign up for your emails. You might offer an incentive such as a free ebook or whitepaper to sweeten the pot a little and encourage people to opt-in to your email subscription.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>Use social media marketing---It&rsquo;s free if you DIY and enormously effective. Facebook has about 800 million users now and many of those people are potential customers for you. Twitter is also popular and another great opportunity for social media marketing for your online drop shipping business.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>Have a blog---A blog for your online drop shipping business can work wonders for you! Not only will it help with PR in the same way as social media marketing, but it also works to create quality content that will help boost your rankings in search.</li> </ul> <p><br />Drop Ship Access has 1.7 million high quality products ready for you to start selling today and at rock bottom wholesale prices, too!

So the way you approach marketing for ecommerce is different. However, the basic goal of marketing any business---either online or off---is to increase awareness of your brand, business and products. This can be done on the internet quite effectively and usually much cheaper than marketing in the real world.<br /><br /> <h3>What Marketing Techniques are Best for Ecommerce?</h3> <br />There are several marketing strategies for ecommerce that work especially well.

Maybe even more so. Why? Simply because if you live in a small town or rural area, you may have the market basically cornered on your niche and the products you sell. For example, let&rsquo;s say you&rsquo;re selling kayaks and canoes. In this scenario, if local people wanted to buy a kayak or canoe, chances are they will come to you for it from sheer necessity.<br /><br />But this isn&rsquo;t true for ecommerce. No matter what you sell on the internet--- provided it isn&rsquo;t something completely off the wall like pulverized moon rocks or something else totally out there---you are going to have competition because others will be selling it, as well. In fact, you will probably have a lot of competition. This makes marketing for ecommerce in order to drive traffic to your dropship products absolutely critical.<br /><br /><strong>How Can You Market for Ecommerce?</strong><br /><br />There are several tried and true ways of marketing for ecommerce:<br /><br /> <ul> <li>Google Adwords</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Email Marketing</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Social Media Marketing</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Ads</li> </ul> <ul> <li>PPC Ads</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Blogging</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Content or Article Marketing</li> </ul> <ul> <li>And More</li> </ul> <br />Drop Ship Access has a wealth of free videos, e-books and whitepapers that will be tremendously helpful in learning about the various ways of marketing for ecommerce.<br /><br />While you&rsquo;re there on the Drop Ship Access site taking advantage of some of the free educational resources offered, check out the 1.7 million high quality, name brand products available at true wholesale prices, available for you to start selling in your dropship home business today!<br /><br />Marketing for ecommerce is essential to the success of your home dropship business and Drop Ship Access can help you succeed!<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/51195/A-Home-Dropship-Business-Could-Make-Your-Dreams-a-Reality" title="A Home Dropship Business Could Make Your Dreams a Reality!" target="_blank"><strong>A Home Dropship Business Could Make Your Dreams a Reality!</strong></a></p> <br /><br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/81562/Building-a-Home-Dropship-Business-Marketing-for-Ecommerce&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeTue, 07 Feb 2012 17:22:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:81562http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/78162/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Holiday-Email-Marketing-to-Increase-Sales#Comments1Ecommerce Dropship Tips: Holiday Email Marketing to Increase Saleshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/78162/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Holiday-Email-Marketing-to-Increase-Sales<br><img id="img-1353989060676" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/newspaper.jpg" alt="email marketing dropship business" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Good news for your ecommerce home <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> business: Despite the still ailing economy worldwide, internet retail analysts are predicting an increase in the number of people who will be doing their holiday shopping online this year, so having a great email marketing campaign in place for this season of extra shoppers will help to ensure that you get your fair share!<br><br><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/ramp-up-sales-with-email-marketing/" title="Click Here For a FREE Email Marketing E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Email Marketing E-Book!</strong></a><br><br>Email marketing is one of the most effective---as well as cost effective---methods of marketing for anyone with an online business.

Tweak your opt-in call to action for the holidays by saying something like this: “Sign up to receive our emails and get exclusive holiday deals!”</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Try targeting your existing customers in terms of past purchases and then offer bundle deals containing similar or the same dropship products in your email marketing to these subscribers. For your inactive subscribers who haven’t made a purchase from your dropship site for a while, try making it a little more tempting to shop with you again by offering some great promotions.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be sure that your marketing emails are compatible with smart phones and other mobile devices. More and more internet users, which includes holiday shoppers, are using mobile devices to access the World Wide Web for such things as reading emails and shopping.</li> </ul> <br>Holiday email marketing can net you significantly more traffic and sales of your dropship products!<br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263" id="hs-cta-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263" style="border-width:0px;" src="http://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><br>If you liked this article, you may also like this one:<strong> <a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/33990/E-Commerce-Dropship-Sales-Marketing-for-Online-Road-Warriors" title="E-Commerce Dropship Sales Marketing for Online Road Warriors" target="_blank">E-Commerce Dropship Sales Marketing for Online Road Warriors</a></strong><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/78162/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Holiday-Email-Marketing-to-Increase-Sales&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeWed, 23 Nov 2011 22:08:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:78162http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/77504/Increase-DropShip-Sales-with-Viral-Marketing#Comments0Increase DropShip Sales with Viral Marketing http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/77504/Increase-DropShip-Sales-with-Viral-Marketing<br><p>Have you heard about viral marketing?</p> <p>When used effectively, viral marketing increases your drop ship sales exponentially!

Half said they&rsquo;ll comparison shop more, nearly one-third said they&rsquo;ll no longer buy without a discount or free shipping, and nearly 30% said they&rsquo;ll browse more online than in the malls to find the deals. </em><br /><br /><em>Women are twice as likely as men to use social media to find deals and share them with friends (16% versus 8%). Those in the highest income group ($75k+) will make fewer changes in the amount they&rsquo;ll spend, but will seek deals &ndash; discounts, free shipping and coupons &ndash; more than those earning less.&rdquo;</em><br /><br />You can learn a lot from this research!

In fact, if you are able to write and design your email marketing newsletters, you are really at an advantage since this marketing method won’t cost you a penny.<br><br>Here are some tips on writing great emails for marketing your dropship business:<br><br></p> <ul> <li>Make your email marketing mobile friendly! With more and more people on the go and using mobile devices to access and read emails, you will be missing the boat if you don’t make sure your emails are accessible via a variety of the most popular mobile devices. Internet research has shown that approximately half of all Americans will be using Smartphones by December of 2011, making the mobile market one you can’t afford to miss.</li> </ul> <br><br> <ul> <li>Incorporate social media marketing into your dropship email marketing. For example, your Facebook fans. You can send them messages directly through Facebook and the delivery rate is 100%! The open rate is almost as good, so take advantage of your fans for holiday email marketing.</li> </ul> <br><br> <ul> <li>Try having your marketing emails interactive. You can use polls, surveys, or votes to do this, or you can make them interactive by offering a nice reward or discount for clicking through a link to your website.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Make it worth your subscribers’ while to share your emails with others in their circle. You don’t have to give away the store, but you might offer a discount, free shipping or a free e-book as a reward for passing along your marketing emails. This ensures a great ripple effect for your marketing efforts as your emails ripple outward from the main targets.</li> </ul> <br><br>The holidays are fast approaching, so get your dropship home business ready with some well planned email marketing!<br><br>If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/32560/Social-Media-Marketing-Twitter-Tips-for-Dropship-Business-Bloggers" title="Social Media Marketing: Twitter Tips for Dropship Business Bloggers" target="_blank"><strong>Social Media Marketing: Twitter Tips for Dropship Business Bloggers</strong></a></p> <p class="title"><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263" id="hs-cta-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263" style="border-width:0px;" src="http://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span></p> <br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/73720/Tips-for-Email-Marketing-to-Boost-Holiday-Ecommerce-Dropship-Sales&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeMon, 26 Sep 2011 16:35:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:73720
