Grow your business with branded email marketing solutions from Articulated Brands.

Branded email marketing lets you turn up the juice on your communications… and it turns the simple act of keeping in touch into making a dramatic impact with clients and prospects. Watch referrals and incremental sales grow as the “chore” of consistent communications becomes the joy of experiencing a more engaged and enthusiastic fan base. Branded e-mail solutions from Articulated Brands help you optimize your brand where it matters most: right in front of the faces of all of those you already have on your radar.

Sending email returns results.

You get what you give. Karma. The boomerang effect. Whatever you want to call it, email marketing grows brands, grows businesses, grows the ego of whomever claims responsibility for putting it to work for your company.
Articulated Brands’ email marketing can help you retain customers, keep clients and prospects informed, increase awareness and sales, fill seats and support your employee communications goals. Due to its relatively low cost and effectiveness, more and more companies looking to maximize impact and stretch their marketing budgets are making email marketing their first priority. Also, it’s fast. As in blazing fast. And so far, it hasn’t tested positive for any sort of performance-enhancing drug use. Cost-effective, speedy and brimming with moral fiber, now that’s something you can get behind, right?
But to work, email has to be done well. Content needs to be clear and compelling. Graphics need to be visually appealing. Campaigns need to be personalized and relevant. Delivery needs to be timely and accurate. And results need to be thoroughly tracked and analyzed, and the findings applied to future mailings.

Simply call us at 310.826.8518 to learn more and ask for your no-obligation demo. As surprisingly powerful as it is surprisingly affordable, it’ll prove to be one of the savviest marketing dollar stretches you make all year.

QUICK TIPS

E-tips. (Like Q-tips, but it’s okay to put these in your ear.)

For the greatest success in your email marketing campaigns, I advice my marketing consulting clients:

  1. Ask for permission. For when I’m serving as your marketing consultant, it
    helps ensure relationships with ISP’s (a key to quality delivery) remain at the
    A+ level. And with consumers becoming more finicky about what they read,
    building a true permission-based list is more important than ever.
  2. Get into their address books.
    Want to know the secret to reaching the inbox? It’s the Address Book. Get in
    there, and you’re more likely to bypass any filters and show up just the way
    you want. Remind your audience members to add you to their address book
    (or white list or safe senders list) every chance you get.
  3. Give your emails both style and substance.
    Thanks to this system for my marketing agency clients now it’s easier than
    ever to create emails that are attractive and enticing. Furthermore, a good
    copywriter can help you structure your content, capturing the flavor of your
    brand while at the same time incorporating both the meat of your message
    and supporting your overall strategy. Creative content also helps put you on
    their “gotta read it” short list
  4. Send with delivery in mind.
    Before your emails can be read and responded to, they have to be seen.
    That’s why we make sure your emails are sent in a way that’s designed to
    ensure high delivery rates – through personalized delivery, sophisticated
    delivery policies, and ISP relationships. And it’s why we offer you the tools
    to proof your campaign’s content prior to send-off and to see the complete
    results once sent.
  5. Use (really use) the subject line.
    Arguably the most important single line of any email, the subject line is your
    two-second opportunity to catch someone’s eye and convince them to stop
    and look. Even a freelance copywriter with email copywriting experience will
    vow you with the myriad ways there are to craft an engaging subject line.
  6. Know your audience.
    The key to creating appealing content is to really know the group to whom
    you’re communicating. Use your signup screens and database to collect
    information about who they are, where they live, and what they like. Enlist
    your recipients’ help to keep that information fresh and current.
  7. Tailor your message.
    It’s all about creating smaller, more targeted mailings based on your
    recipients’ demographics, interests and more. The more timely, relevant and
    personal you can make it, the better. Again, an experienced email marketing
    company or professional email copywriter should be able to develop a
    creative pitch that shows you how you can breathe life into your creative
    email campaigns.
  8. Handle opt-outs immediately.
    It’s common courtesy. Also, it’s the law. The Can-Spam Legislation grants
    you 10 days to handle opt-out requests, but in the world of email 10 days
    is an eternity. That’s why this marketing consultant’s opt-out feature
    handles requests instantly and remembers those requests to prevent against
    accidental abuse.
  9. Understand (and use) your results.
    Tracking metrics like receipts, bounces, opens, clicks, forwards and signups
    is the first step to understanding what’s happening to your emails. But those
    numbers are more than just metrics — they’re your audience talking to
    you. Not with real voices, because that’d be weird, but through their actions
    (or inaction). Listen to what they’re saying and then apply it to your future
    emails and email marketing campaigns.
  10. Experiment and adapt.
    Like most things, email marketing isn’t a one-size-fits-all proposition. So,
    start with a basic plan, apply your philosophy, brand strategy and style, and
    adapt as you go.

WHY?

Why email marketing? Why this email marketing company?

Articulated Brands’ email marketing system was developed with you in mind. More importantly, you can add custom email marketing to your media mix for under $100 a month! A quick re-cap of the reasons why email marketing is going to be one of your favorite outreach tactics:

The Interface
Articulated Brands®’ intuitive interface makes even the most sophisticated email-
marketing features easy for anyone to use, saving you time and effort and allowing you to
let non-technical staff members help you manage your lists, content and account.

The Flexibility of It All
From signup screens and database fields to campaign templates and content, there’s little
about our service that can’t be customized to suit your particular projects and process.

The Relationship
Should you require more support in terms of strategic messaging or creative content, your
“membership” locks in special rates on email copywriting services, email design services
and email marketing consulting.

The Custom Designs
Whether you ask us to translate your existing paper letterhead to e-stationery or to add
more pop and flair to your brand, we’ll create a one-of-a-kind piece of e-stationery that
helps you get noticed. While template systems achieve an economy of scale, they do
little to differentiate, impact or impress. Too many companies today go running after the
cheapest email marketing solutions provider they can find without considering the shape
and status of their existing brand. It’s imperative to “stay in their faces”, but it’s just as
imperative that the impression you make is a polished, professional, powerful one.

GETTING STARTED

  • Your web address
  • TERMS OF AGREEMENT

    *Permission-based means you agree to send only to known parties – people with whom
    you currently have business relationships. It is this commitment to the principles of
    Can Spam Legislation that facilitates such strong relationships with ISP’s. Purchased
    lists and addresses constitute spam. Any account that, in the sole opinion of Articulated
    Brands, misuses the system or sends emails in excess of their monthly allotment will be
    immediately suspended, without refund. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
