Online marketing is being able to market your products and services by reaching out to your target clients the most effective and efficient way possible. One way for you to be a successful internet marketer is through crafting an effective e-mail marketing campaign. To do this, below are some tips that can help you sell out your products without turning off your clients.
Just like every endeavor, the first thing you need to consider is goal setting. This means that you should define your objectives first in relation to why you are implementing such campaign like e-mail marketing. By weaving clearly your goals and objectives, it would be easy for you to course through your campaign without getting you off-track.
Goal Defined Now What?
After defining your aim, comes next is the implementation of what has been set. But before that, you should also come up with an effective call to action text where your recipient is readily directed on what they are to do in response to your message. Have your call to action text as clear, convincing, and motivating as you want to ensure that your message gets a positive response and will not end up trashed.
Other than developing a great call to action feature, it is also best to make your message more personalised to make your readers or recipients feel the connection between you and them. Having a personalised message can also give your readers the impression that you really put effort in what you do. This reduces the tendency for your message to be treated as spam.
Furthermore, in composing your message, you have to start in making a subject line that captures the interest of your readers. Take note that it is the subject line that is seen first by your recipients. By developing a catchy subject line, there’s a greater probability for your recipients to open your message and read its content. So true to say, even at this point, you have to make a lasting positive impression on your readers by having a subject line that is well thought of.
Furthermore, in the content of your message, you have to inform your readers the time they have subscribed to your e-mail list. This is to give them a view as to why they get this particular message of yours. Informing your readers the time they opted into your subscription list can make them think that the message is rightfully for them.
For courtesy sake, you have to provide a link where your readers can opt to unsubscribe from your list. This is to make them feel that they have the freedom to cut their connections to you. It is really better to make your recipients feel they are not obliged to be on your list.
Lastly, just like every marketing message, you have to keep your e-mail content as concise, and engaging as possible. You have to remember that not all your readers have the time to read everything on your e-mail. So, instead of wasting your time and effort on writing lengthy e-mails, you can rather craft them concisely and straightforwardly. This is also to avoid getting your recipients turned off.

This tutorial will guide you through the setup process of new type of Google Adwords remarketing lists. With the new version of remarketing lists the whole creation process is slightly changed, as there is no need to upload different tags on different pages, you just have to upload a single tag across the site and then setup remarketing lists based on your website URL parameters.
How to setup new remarketing lists based on one tag
1. Audiences. Navigate to the “Audiences” section which can be located on left sidebar under the “Shared Library”;
2. Create a primary tag.
a. Create a primary remarketing tag by clicking on the “New Audience” – > “Remarketing List” and select a second option “Define a list of site visitors by placing a new tag …...” . This tag has to be uploaded to every single page on your site (or just simply added to the footer of every page).
b. What to do if you already have multiple tags created and uploaded to your pages? My suggestion will be to close all of the remarketing lists and use only one tag-based list which got the highest number of users and re-use that tag in every page of your website. Please be aware that after deletion of existing re marketing lists you will have to re-configure “Custom Combinations” too .
3. Define remarketing lists based on URL address. Once primary tag is uploaded to every page of your website, you have to start defining your lists based page URL. Click to create new “Remarketing list” and select the first option named as “Define a list of site visitors based on the selection below“ and add the parameters of the URL address. Example: Lets you want to create a list targeting all pages related to the “Conservatories“. In order to do this you create a list where URL contains “Convservatories“.

Google Adwords shared library can be very useful tool for sharing common elements such as Google remarketing audiences, negative keyword lists and placement exclusions accross multiple Google Adwords campaigns.
There are three sub-libraries available under the “shared libraries” on the left sidebar:
- Audiences. This is the place where you can create and manage your audiences for Google Remarketing campaigns. “Remarketing lists” will allow you to create a list of visitors who have recently visited your website and “Custom Combinations” a tool for setting rules for multiple remarketing lists. (i.e include a remarketing list of people who have recently visited the website and exclude a list for visitors who filled an enquiry form)
- Campaign Negative Keywords. Negative keyword lists that you can use accross the multiple campaigns. This may be very useful tool for sharing lists of common negative keywords such as towns, counties, countries, competitor brand names or any other combination of negative keywords. Actually those lists can be very valuable, because you can always download these lists and use them for multiple client adwords accounts.
- Campaign Placement Exclusions. You can use this tool to share the placement exclusions accross the display network campaigns.
