What’s On @ The Tonsley Pod:

Thursday 30 November:

  • Email Marketing with MailChimp

    DIY Digital is a registered MailChimp Expert and can help your business explore this cost effective marketing channel to convert leads to customers, re-establish patronage from previous customers and get new customers through referrals.
    This FREE seminar will:

    • Introduce the benefits of the MailChimp free vs paid plan
    • Take a look at Australia's Privacy Legislation
    • Discuss ways to build your email list
    • Demonatrate how to begin with your very first e-newsletter to customers and clients
    • Consider single issue emails with call to action vs e-newsletters
    • Talk about images and mobile responsiveness
    • Study open and click through rates

    Most small business owners underrate the effectiveness of email and overthink its nuisance factor.  Email marketing is great for bricks and mortar shops, professionals (eg. accountants, physiotherapists, hairdressers), consultants and businesses looking for referrals and repeat business.
