Why every business must publish a customer newsletter

The invention of the Internet has led to the creation of many new businesses but among the best are newsletter loyalty programs.



Major airlines make huge amounts of money from their customers through loyalty programs which sell vast amounts of travel and products. Airlines collect names and addresses when people fly and sign up their email address to a marketing message list that is used to send an endless supply of newsletters.

The extra sales of the goods and services showcased in newsletters, boosts airline profits significantly as it is extra income without overheads like fuel, airport charges and air crew costs.

At the same time, airlines send offers of cheap flights to their previous guests to encourage even more sales from the same people. Marketing experts teach commerce students the importance of keeping existing customers and an extensive ongoing email marketing campaign is a very good way to build loyalty. Self promotion by email is a lot less expensive than roadside posters, newspaper advertorials and TV ads!

Fuel companies are another market segment that use email marketing. BP for instance is signing up motorists to programs like Velocity to build their share of email marketing revenue over and above their profit from fuel sales.

Every business should maintain a marketing list. Whether it is Betty's Boutique or Bob's Building, business managers need to take the time to maintain communiction with everyone who comes in contact with their business by recording an email address and consent to keep in touch.

Once a business has an email address and consent to send newsletters or marketing material, they can engage in one to one selling.

Most home business operators and many SME's do not have the spare time or human resources to maximise the potential of an email marketing list. Despite knowing that they will create a strong advantage over the competition that does not use email marketing, they either forget to write newsletters or send sales offers because they simply do not have the skills to do it well.

A business that can be outsourced to write and send business newsletters for SME's can be a great help to business managers. Newsletter writing experts do a first class job of creating and maintaining subscriber lists and have formal processes in place to ensure that the businesses they work for match the extra sales returns in proportion to major email marketers like airlines and fuel companies.

A good business communication partner will do a lot of essential marketing tasks for their clients.
