Content Marketing 201: Beyond the Basics
Building on the last episode about list segmentation, it’s time to start adding some simple automation to your email marketing strategy. We’ll do this very carefully, with a light touch – and if done properly, it will help us build trust little by little with prospective customers.
There are two types of basic automation that I recommend to clients when they are just getting started:
- Welcome sequence
- Follow-up sequence
Learn about each here in Episode 159 and how to apply them to your own email marketing strategy.
