Spam-proof your sales patter
Spam is to your in-box what its over-processed namesake once was to your sorry school sandwiches. But if youâ€™re preparing for an e-marketing campaign, spam is much more than a minor irritation. If the cyber-gods deem your latest e-marketing communication to fall into this category, the worst case scenario is that you could get blacklisted, never to be seen or heard of again on the World Wide Web. But how do you beat them at their own game?

â€œAre you risking a 40,000 Euro fine?"
If you're thinking of getting a e-commerce website, you need to approach every company you consider with caution. Why? Well, would you go to your local GP for open heart surgery? The wrong choice of web developer and designer may not cost you your life, but might risk the end of your business â€“as is the case for more than 60 unsuspecting companies, mostly in the Midlands region. Want to know why theyâ€™re each risking a fine of 40,000 Euros?
The real reason your emails don't get read
According to Ogilvy & Mather founding director, David Ogilvy, FIVE TIMES as many people read the headlines as read the body copy of an email. And added to that, more recent research suggests that itâ€™s the FIRST TWO WORDS of this opener that determines your success. And did you know that according to advertising great John Caples stated that in a print ad, 75 PER CENT of buying decisions are made at headline level? Weâ€™re sure heâ€™d view emails in pretty much the same way. So, if your headline sucks, you may as well pack up and go home.
