What is Permission Marketing 2.0?

Ever since Seth Godin wrote the book Permission Marketing, the notion of having permission via email to communicate is still valid, but today, you as a marketer need to seek a wider range of permissions. 

Because remember – the consumer is in control over who has access to them directly.

Your goal is to ask for explicit permission from consumers so you can communicate directly with them and  gain a higher level of context. Otherwise instead of enhancing your brand experience you will end up with forced ads that are lacking context.

Explicit permission is the highest level of context, where an individual grants you to engage directly with them. This can be via social media channels, chatbots or a phone call.

Professionally and personally I am trying to use the power of personal connections through social media channels.

The second form of permission is implicit where people grant you permission for a better user experience. Mostly this happens when a person visits your website and allows you to access his personal data. Although the person is not giving you actively permission to reach out to him or her on a different channel.

The takeaway is to ask explicit permission to engage with the consumer and you do have my explicit permission to leave a comment below to start the conversation;-)

But remember, as long as the Matterhorn stands, everything is going to be alright.

Cheers people and stay safe !

E-mail Marketing – Still part of your Marketing Strategy?

Email vs Social Media

Social media being a hot topic I was wondering if your e-mail marketing is still an important part of your marketing strategy?

I believe social media needs to be integrated in your business strategy to enforce e-mail marketing more than ever. E-mail continues to evolve with features that make your content easy to share and which makes it a great relationship building tool. It becomes crucial not only to listen but also to respond in real-time (as good as possible) to your customers. Amazon is doing a great job in that matter where many brands can only dream of.

Play by the rules. Once you have the permission to deliver relevant messages to the people who want them you can start sending emails with the correct frequency, optimised for the right device, which contain the right type of content for the recipient.

What are your thoughts on this?

Reading and hearing so much about social media online I just felt to drop a few lines to highlight the importance of your e-mail marketing strategy.

Okay, lets go back to do our homework if you haven’t done it yet;-)
