4 Ways of integrating email marketing and social networking
Send an emailing-posting to your LinkedIn group company
Your company manages a group on LinkedIn? Whether to reinforce the brand positioning, encourage networking, communicate with dealers or employees … Once the community has defined set targets, one of the options of the manager is the ability to send, once a week without cost, an invitation to all members of the group.
A message that arrives instantly to each participant, in which the issuer is the name of the group, and the signer, the group manager.
You can define the subject of the email and decide if it is active and prominent in the group discussion. And just like any other discussion, group members can share, recommend and comment on the content of the emails.
LinkedIn will not provide a mail open rate, but if the text contains links generated like Bit.ly or Hootsuite, you will be able to find clicks and calculate the CTR. And this will allow to be compared, in turn, to that obtained through other channels.
Turn your Twitter contacts into a database
What Twitter contacts in your database have profile and what’s their level of online influence? And more: are followers of your company profile on Twitter? The SocialBro Pro (paid) version allows you to find the import function by email. You can use it to a text file or Google Contacts: SocialBro will tell you who have Twitter profiles, their level of influence as Kred, if they follow your brand, etc. With the option to follow them, you can add to lists, send a tweet direct message … And so improve interaction with them.
