    Email Marketing Campaigns - Collecting the Addresses

    (Page 3 of 4 )

    Email marketing campaigns are capable of reaching a huge audience and can be very inexpensive to implement. What’s to prevent you from moving full steam ahead with this great online advertising technique? Before you create even your first ad, you must have someone to send it to. In other words, you’re going to need email addresses…and a lot of them. When you find out how to get them, you’ll know how to get your campaign off the ground.

    There are several different ways you can begin building a stockpile of email addresses, some a little easier than others. Before making any decisions, it’s important to know how much money (if any) you can afford to spend on your marketing campaign. If you can afford to take funds out of your general advertising budget, do so. Having a little bit of money to spend makes launching your campaign much, much easier, and it helps you save valuable time.

    If your goal is to get your campaign off the ground quickly and you have money to spend, look into lead-generation services. Many, many companies specialize in providing sales leads for businesses and professionals just like you. A large portion of these companies will charge for their services, though if you have the time to look for them it is possible to find free leads as well.

    Sales leads are actually nothing more than compiled data, broken down into easy-to-use information for sales and marketing professionals. Since your efforts are going to focus on email, be sure that you use lead generation companies offering the addresses you want. Companies such as, and are just a few of those who offer extensive email leads for online marketing campaigns.

    Basically, these lead-gathering companies do the work for you. All you have to do is collect the addresses and get to work on your marketing. There are ways, however, to gather email information under your own efforts.

    Possibly the cheapest way to gather email addresses from potential customers is to have a Web site for your business. If you already have a site in place, a few changes can turn your pages into a great lead-gathering device. Add applications to your site which are specifically designed to get this usable data. Guest books which require email addresses, email verification boxes and forums can all be great lead-gathering tools. Make it easy for people to give you their email addresses, and they will. The process of gaining information from site visitors can be very lengthy but also rewarding; for starters, you know they’re already interested in your business or services because they visited the site.

    Once you have some addresses to play with, you can work on the real meat of your marketing campaign: the email advertisements themselves.
