Email marketing and telesales working together…

Ongoing e-mail marketing programmes are used in conjunction with landing pages on the websites and in tandem with traditional telesales campaigns. When promoting new services, new products, market updates and sales promotions, the key to success is creating e-mails that are of interest and add value to the target audience – making sure they are read and acted upon and never regarded as spam.
