This is also the reason why e-commerce marketing is becoming more and more important recently, while email advertising plays a crucial role in that regard. With more than 2.5 billion email users worldwide, this channel of promotion has the power to reach global audiences almost instantly. It provides brands with a gigantic sales potential, especially bearing in mind the low-cost nature of email campaigns. That’s exactly why some of the most popular brands around the globe invest extra budgets into this type of content creation.

Knowing this, it’s important to use any and every opportunity to present yourself in a positive light online, especially through email communications.

So, what are some great email signature examples? We’ve laid out a bunch for, plus some tips for success. 1. Keep it Simple Not everyone needs an elaborate email signature format to accompany their communications. Sometimes, simple and elegant will do the trick. The key elements of a professional email signature include your name, title, company and phone number. You may also include an address and your company’s website. But don’t include your email address—that’s redundant and unnecessary. Here’s a simple email signature example: 2. Use Color To add visual interest, even to a basic email signature, try using 1-2 colors drawn from your brand, logo or any graphical elements you might use.  More often than not, more than two colors start to clash and become distracting, so unless you have a particularly good eye for design, stick with one or two…

How to Find the Best Free Email Service in 2019

Geschrieben von Christin am Januar 8, 2019

If you were to look through your personal contact list right now, it’s probably safe to say that the majority of your contacts will have an email address from one of two services: Google’s Gmail (@gmail.com) or Microsoft’s Outlook.com (@outlook.com). This is unsurprising, considering Gmail has 15.8% and Outlook.com has 6.7% of the email client market share. Both of these free email services are backed by tech giants—Google and Microsoft—and have become the top contenders when choosing what service to use for your personal or small business email needs. But with the two constantly neck and neck in the email race, how do you decide which one is best for you? Google’s Gmail service is the older and most popular of the two—it has over 1 billion monthly active users as of February 2016. Because it’s been around longer, and it has a bigger audience, Gmail is generally considered the industry leader in free email services. Microsoft, on the other hand, launched the free version of Outlook.com in 2012 and has been refining the service ever since. It now has more than 400 million active users and a robust suite of features that rival the competition. On the surface, Google’s Gmail and Microsoft’s Outlook.com seem pretty similar. It’s only when you look at the details that you discover just how much the two differ. And it’s in these details that you’ll find the features that matter most to you to help you choose the right option for your personal or…

13 Tricks to Build an Awesome Brand Using a Podcast in 2019

Geschrieben von Guest am Januar 8, 2019

The podcast has been around for more than a decade, and has made the rounds more of a convenient way to get news or a radio broadcast on demand. However, podcasts have bloomed into a great way to do marketing in 2014, when popular podcasts such as Serial attracted the attention of a mobile population. Podcasts became so popular that big companies were willing to bet on them to engage customers. However, not all companies have the resources to commission a branded podcast series by established podcast producers, or even a mention on a popular podcast. The next best thing, then, is to launch your own podcast to build your brand. Before you start to panic, consider that podcasts are not really that much different from blogs.  The idea behind either medium is to present information that your target audience wants or needs and develop a relationship with them at the same time. You also use a certain tone to express your personality and establish a rapport with your audience. The main difference is that blogs use text, and some graphics, while podcasts use audio, and some videos.  The biggest advantage of podcasts over blogs is that the audience prefers audio-based entertainment. They can do other things while listening, which they can’t really do while reading. This is why 42 million Americans listened to podcasts weekly in 2017, and most of them play it on a mobile device. Podcast also tend to create loyalty and passion among listeners once you…
