You may be doing all the right content marketing things (e-newsletter, blog, articles, etc.) and still not get good results (get found, get known, get clients!) If all you’re doing is publishing good information, without personality, without offers, what’s the point?
I got an email from a client who lamented the poor results from her emailed newsletter. After a year she reported:
- No new clients came to her after reading it
- No new sign-ups were happening (or were rare)
She asked what she was doing wrong. Here were some of her questions, followed by my answers. This would be a good time to check your own e-newsletter for opportunities for improvement.
- Could it be the article is too long?
- Could it be I don’t know how to sell myself with my newsletter?
- Could it be that I don’t choose the right article for my clients (they are small business owners and at time managers in various companies)?
- Could it be that many people check their emails on their phone and do not have time to read my newsletters?
