Why Your Professional Service Company Needs Email Marketing

Share This Post

Do you run a prestigious accounting or law firm in the Philadelphia area that relies on referrals? Do you operate a local real estate office or work as a mortgage broker who attends regular networking meetings hoping to get your next client? How is that working out for you?

If your response is “Meh,” “I get a lead every once in a while,” or, “The pandemic’s got me down,” it’s time to tap into some digital marketing — that is, of course, if you’re not doing some form of it already — and we hope you are! 

While having a properly optimized website and pay per click campaign are sure-fire ways to help you get some leads, one form of marketing that professional services are tapping into more and more is email marketing.

The Magic of Email Marketing

With COVID-19 restrictions limiting people from gathering in large groups, and thus, the way many professional service companies network to find prospective clients, it’s probably become a lot more challenging to keep the leads (and money) rolling in. Therefore, if you want to get — or keep — your business in front of people and continue helping it flourish, email marketing is one of the best and most affordable avenues.

If done right, email marketing will build upon the relationships you already have with your existing client base, provide valuable information, encourage subscribers not only to read your emails but to take action, and strengthen your overall digital marketing efforts!

How do you start emailing marketing? Great Question! Let 1SEO guide you!

Do you have a client list? If you do, then you’re already off to a great start. If not, it’s time to start typing in the names and email addresses on all of those business cards (you’ve probably got wrapped in rubber bands in one of your desk drawers) into an Excel spreadsheet. More often than not, we find that most of our clients have already “gone digital” and have an Excel spreadsheet with all of their clients’ information listed.

After that, it’s time to determine which email marketing platform you want to use and sign up. Two of the most frequently used platforms used by our clients are Constant Contact or Mailchimp. However, that’s not to say you can’t find something else that will better suit your needs. Once the platform is chosen, you pick a pricing plan and upload your email list. It’s also important to keep in mind that the price will also fluctuate depending on how big your email list is.

Once all of those logistics are set in place, it’s time to design your first email template, start critically thinking about what you want to say and promote, strategize… Sound like too much for you to handle on top of managing your day to day business? Yeah, we hear that from a lot of people!
