As of October 2018 almost 4.2 billion people were active internet users and 3.4 billion were social media users (Statista). China, India and the United States rank ahead all other countries in terms of internet users. This gives a marketer an unprecedented number of customers to reach with product and service offerings, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The interactive nature of the internet facilitates immediate communication between businesses and consumers, allowing businesses to respond quickly to the needs of consumers and changes in the marketplace.
Transactional emails are usually triggered based on a customer's action with a company. To be qualified as transactional or relationship messages, these communications' primary purpose must be "to facilitate, complete, or confirm a commercial transaction that the recipient has previously agreed to enter into with the sender" along with a few other narrow definitions of transactional messaging. Triggered transactional messages include dropped basket messages, password reset emails, purchase or order confirmation emails, order status emails, reorder emails, and email receipts.
To create an effective DMP, a business first needs to review the marketplace and set 'SMART' (Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Relevant and Time-Bound) objectives. They can set SMART objectives by reviewing the current benchmarks and key performance indicators (KPIs) of the company and competitors. It is pertinent that the analytics used for the KPIs be customised to the type, objectives, mission and vision of the company.
You need to approach many prospects to find a few people who are right for your downline. Electronic communication provides exposure for your business without using too much of your time to vet interested prospects. Develop a website or use a standard one provided by your MLM as part of your distributorship. When you are contacted by email, arrange for an automatic reply that supplies information and directs the prospect to the next step to give you time to send a personal response. Add the email address to your contact list and include it when disseminating useful information about your business. Start a blog, which can be accessed on your website, and write articles that highlight product information and help your group expand their businesses. Post meeting dates and announcements on your social networking sites and update them at least once a day.
