Targeted Email Campaigns

Email remains a highly effective tool in communicating with your customers and potential customers. Targeted email marketing gets your message out and helps to increasing your online conversions – meaning – driving traffic to your website, which is exactly what you want.

Your newsletters might have one or more purposes such as offering monthly content and tips, engaging promotional offers, contests, or announcements – the sky is the limit!

While Email Marketing Campaigns are a relatively straightforward and affordable approach to connect with your audience, there are strict Anti-Spam Regulations that must be adhered to in order to be compliant under The Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation. In part, what this means to you is that electronic messaging must occur through “opt in” rather than “opt out” methods of gaining consent. This though, is subject to exemptions and interpretations. Monkey Business can set up your sign-ups directly through your website helping you grow your recipient list.
