How to Use Email Marketing to Drive Referrals

How to Use Email Marketing to Drive Referrals

Email marketing remains the holy grail for ROI in B2B marketing, especially for professional services. The professional services buying cycle is characterized by a lengthy, intricate process. The notion that you'll magically appear on your ideal customer’s radar just when they're ready to spend money on your unique services is far from realistic. AEC marketers need to efficiently capture a prospect’s attention, give them a tangible resource to subscribe to, and then keep them engaged with great content that repeatedly convinces them that the firm is the ideal partner.

King will impart best practices for bringing AEC buyers into a firm’s fold and preventing them from unsubscribing. She will cover how to strike a balance between the information needs of your ideal prospects and your firm's expertise. King will also explore how to build, segment and nurture an email list.

Attendees will learn:

— The fundamentals of effective email communication
— How to sustain prospect engagement after an initial impression
— How to write emails that remind recipients of a firm’s services and expertise
— The significance of maintaining and nurturing an email list
— How to adhere to spam laws while building an email list
