What is Email Marketing?houston-texas-email-marketing-campaign

Email marketing is a formal marketing strategy that helps you keep your existing customers and prospects coming back. By using a simple email campaign we will reach out weekly to your customers or clients and let them know that you care. Most importantly, we will keep reinforcing your brand while greatly increasing your residual income all from your existing customer base. We don’t want to loose the connections and contacts that you have already established.

Why we lead in Email Marketing

Yes, just about anybody can send an email. Just anybody can send a newsletter, but they are extremely ineffective. We take an aggressive approach to fully understand your target market. We write custom emails that your clients will actually want to read. We keep reinforcing your brand while analyzing our results. Its important that we fully understand what is and what isn’t working.

As a powerful marketing tool eMediaStudios uses every analytical tool, at our disposal to provide you and your company with insightful useful information on the effectiveness of your email campaign.

The important aspect is we maintain constant contact with your target market.

The “Rule of Seven” and why its important

The Rule of Seven is an old marketing term. The statement is based on an ideology where a potential prospect or client needs to see or hear your marketing message at least seven times before they take action and buy from you. Obviously that number is solid, but the overall idea remains the same. We need to maintain continued contact with your clientele. We don’t want them to forget about you, your product or your brand. Now the sad truth of the Rule of Seven is you can’t just initiate a marketing campaign then be done. Marketing must be an on-going process in order for it to be successful!

Do you own a small business or are you thinking of starting one? Are you trying to increase sales and your overall customer base? Houston Texas is a growing place for new businesses, and one of the best ways to become know is through effective digital marketing. Here are just some of the ways that we will help.

Build Your Brand

Your brand is everything and it represents your entire business model. You need to make sure that everything attributed to it, properly portrays the shear size and future growth of your company. If not, you will appear smaller and less important to potential customers. Thats definitely something that we don’t want.


Do you have a logo? If not, we can immediately start designing one for you. As you are well aware, your logo is the fundamental keystone of your brand. It is your brand for that matter. Everything else molds around it and compliments it.

Business Cards and Literature

Business cards are extremely important for every member of your staff. Not only are they excellent marketing tools, they also build a great deal of pride amongst your team. Everyone likes to hand out their business cards. The more professional you can represent your company the better.

Do you need brochures? Initially, that all depends. Eventually, you most likely do, but you want to tailor your brochures based on the product or services that you offer. The bigger and higher priced the service, the bigger the brochure tends to be. You want to make sure that your service or proposal sticks out from your competitors.

Website Design

Literature and marketing materials are important, but not as immediately important as a professionally designed website is. Your website is your online company. It has to explain in 4 seconds or less, a large portion of your business model. Although its almost impossible to explain your entire business, on the homepage, your main page should explain what your company is about and what basic categories of services or products your offer. If potential customers want to see more, they will click through and read on.

Locate Your Customer

Now your brand is built. Your website and literature are complete, but still no customers or very limited customers at best. How do you generate business?

Fully Understand Your Target Market

First and foremost is to fully understanding your target market. Before we can begin an aggressive online marketing campaign we need to know exactly what age and income demographics your ideal target market is. If they are young, text messaging and social media marketing is huge, if they are older, perhaps email marketing is more beneficial. It all depends on your customers.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Your website is a very powerful marketing tool. But how do you use it? First, we need to generate traffic to it. We do this through article writing, blog posting, and search engine optimization. We review analytics, connect you to every major US search engine and do everything it takes, to make sure your website is found in Google and Bing search results.

Social Media Marketing

Now that your website comes up on the first page of google search results for your select keywords, how do you direct traffic to it? Building brand loyalty takes people. No matter how much technology we use, at the end of the day, we need people to advertise or refer your brands to their friends. The more likes and retweets the higher importance your brand becomes in the eyes of Google and Bing.

We communicate directly to your target market where they reside. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google Plus, LinkedIn, the list literally goes on and on. Your best loyal customer might not even know that you exist yet. How do we find them? Through Social Media Marketing and by locating where they hangout and reside. We want to communicate with your target market using as many avenues as we can and we can’t forget social networking.

Keep Trying

Everything takes time. I would love to say that just building a website is all you need, but reality is it takes continued man-hours and a lot of work to maintain your competitive standing online. Thats where we come in. Lets setup a meeting to fully understand your business and how eMediaStudios can and will help.
