Paid search, search engine optimization (SEO), social media digital marketing

Use email marketing to maximize sales dollars. There is no email software to buy or learn, no marketing staff to hire, and no email list maintenance. It's easy to get started whether you have a complete "clean" list of customers, or if you have many assorted files from multiple departments.
"Share with a friend" feature lets you reach beyond your own customer list
Your email program comes with a feature allowing your customers to log in to their Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn social media accounts to share your email with their friends. This goes beyond simply linking to your company's social media sites by getting your customers to spread the word. The impact from your email marketing suddenly grows as your customers share your offer or contest with friends not on your mailing list.
Email segmentation: the key to higher profits.
Your customers aren't identical, so why send them the same email? We can identify and qualify your customers so they can receive emails on products and services that match their interests. Targeted email marketing increases your open rates and click-through rates. Here are some email segmentation examples:
• Ford owners vs. Chevy owners or Dodge owners.
• Buyers of performance parts vs. accessories buyers.
• Best customers vs. older customers.
• Ticket buyers vs. racers.
• Repeat customers vs. inquirers.

Identify and market to your profitable multichannel customers
Multichannel customers, those who shop online as well as in a catalog, can be some of your most profitable customers. The Wall Street Journal reported on a study done by the US Postal Service, and wrote, "...consumers who received catalogs from a retailer spent 28% more on that retailer's Web site than those who didn't get a catalog. 'The more often you mail,' the study said, 'the more sales you could see.' " That's just more evidence of what we've known for years. We can identify your multichannel customers and design a direct marketing program to maximize your sales and profits from these customers.
The Wall Street Journal also reported on small companies that eliminated direct mail to save money. They discovered their sales dropped as a result. This article talks about how those companies went back to direct mail.
