I have a question about e-mail marketing. We have a list of e-mail addresses (it is about 45 customers right now, but we are working on collecting more) and I was wondering how often should an e-mail be sent to them, and what are some of the best types of e-mails to send (announcing something, offering something, etc.)?

If you would have any samples of effective e-mail messages that could be adapted to my pizza parlor, I would be very appreciative.



Thanks Sarah for your questions. I will submit those to Boris and we’ll be in touch. If you do not recieve the weekly newsletter (where your answers will appear next week) visit:

Thank you for putting this subject in discussion.
I would like to know how to put an email campaign together from scratch. I mean how to collect email addresses? what software I need to use to enter those addresses in? and how to email them so they look more personal (maybe with names in them) without looking like bulk mail? How often to email? And is it better to focus in offer-oriented emails or mix them up with some other info such us recipes…
Thank you for your help
