Yes, building an requires time and effort. However, the payoff is an open line of communication with prospects and existing customers.

Email marketing isn’t a difficult marketing strategy. It won’t break the bank, either, if you’re using

Email enables you to share your value drivers as you nurture your leads.

E-blasts are invasive, impersonal, and worst of all, ineffective. You’re spamming people who often have no interest in your product.

So what does effective email marketing look like for tech companies?

Let’s explore some examples:

Introductory emails

You’ve got one shot to make a first impression.

An introductory email aims to:

  • Introduce yourself and explain why you’re reaching out.
  • Add value in a way that comes across as both creative and informative without being too focused on selling.

Drip campaigns

You can build strong relationships with leads using a drip campaign.

An introductory email, as discussed above, can

Usually, a couple of email sequences that offer your leads some value without pushing for a demo.

If your content is useful, the leads will consider you a valuable contact.

And the purpose of a drip campaign?

To warm up the lead until they’re ready to convert.

But not all drip campaigns are equally effective.

“There’s a drip campaign in a lead gen world and a drip campaign in a demand gen world. They both have different goals.”

Let’s take a deeper look 👀

Lead gen world goals

A typical marketing funnel is the foundation of a drip campaign in a lead gen world. The stages are awareness, consideration and decision.

Tim explained:

The lead is pushed through a marketing funnel to become a(MQL).

What’s the issue?

You’re forcing the lead down an artificial funnel. Often, they’re not ready to buy!

Demand gen world goals

The objective is completely different in a demand gen world.

Tim told us:

“The goal is simple – keep them engaged. Get them within what Cognism CMO Alice de Courcy calls our ‘value loop’. It’s about keeping them involved in our media machine.”

How is this different?

They come to you when they’re ready to buy rather than forcing it.

And the result is greater efficiency.
