  • Create the visual experience

All text is boring. Use HTML styles to provide experience. Have downloads of important announcements. Create a way for your customers to have you in their memory. Provide your emails with style. Include images and emoticons to capture the moments. A picture speaks a thousand words. Use pictures of promotions and events to your customers. Let your email speak for you with links to images. Providing links to corporate events keep your customers engaged. Emails are meant to create memories. Leave the memory behind with the visual experience. Excite them with downloadable images. Engage them with links to create brand curiosity.

  • Guide you customers with constant reminders

Memory is short. Let your customers know about the expiry of product warranty, service etc. Remind them the next step. Provide them a way to reach you. Let them know that a trial license is expired. Use emails to mark their calendars. Use emails to define their to-do lists. Do not overwhelm your customers. Make them believe they are the king. Use emails to serve them at their command. Make them stay tuned with your next moves. Create interest in their minds about your brand. Guide them with the action plan.

  • Enable customers to reach you

Use emails to provide them a way to reach you. Include signatures, contact numbers in your email. Don’t shy away from including URLs, social logos in emails. Use as much effort to enable your customer to connect with you. Let them know your community drive if they are close to you. Invite them to participate. Have the signs to directions and maps. Show them you are real and dependable.

  • Keep the context during communication

Keep the context in your email communications. Written communication can be misinterpreted. Set a context in your email. Let your subject line communicate.  Use similar subject lines while discussing similar topics. Do not let your customer wonder for the meaning. Use periodic communication methods. Do not change the frequency in your emails for newsletters. Make your customers expect you. If you miss out, ensure apologies are made.  Ensure constant communication and clear contexts are always maintained.

  • Appreciate and be thankful

Above all, be thankful to your customers. Let them know you succeed because of them. Be simple in expressing thanks. Appreciate them for being with you. Laud them for your journey. Be generous in your email. Create happiness in their life. Use your emails to communicate happiness. Send them e-cards as part of emails to express your content.

“After over two years of research we chose Simplio. We are so far very satisfied. These people answered the phone on a Sunday and fixed a problem that was not even their fault. It was the host company which I had chosen that had caused our site to go down.”

I cannot even imagine having another company managing my Presta shopping cart.

“They are now part of the Diastasis Rehab business team after working with them almost a year now. I cannot even imagine having another company managing my Presta shopping cart. After a bad experience with a programmer, I needed a new programmer (one that knew prestashop shopping cart) and most important one that I could trust. Finding all three was a difficult process! Lucky for me I found them. I cannot say enough about the diversity of services that this company provides. Every step of the way they make amazing suggestions to increase my sales and they get back to be right away either by email or phone. They have even created a simple and easy check out program for Presta Shop. They are actually a one stop shop! They updated my SSL, are setting up and changing my server to a dedicated one, setting up streaming of my DVD, website design, creating a specific program for address verification on Presta cart and handled the integration of Presta cart with my fulfillment house. I am now working on developing an APP with them”

Simplio really helped me out of a jam.
