You can create following types of email campaigns:

Automating Email Marketing When your sales are running low, this time can be utilized to set up automated email campaigns. Analyze your customer lifecycle and structure a series of emails to move them through the sales pipeline.

DRIP CAMPAIGN Emails are sent to new customers on a set time, often weekly.

NURTURE CAMPAIGN Prospect’s behavior is analyzed and emails are sent accordingly to assist them through the buying process.

WORKFLOW CAMPAIGN This is for the existing customers so that they can receive emails to guide them through the next step of the workflow.


2 Plan Encouraging Deals

Follow up with your regular customers and offer them exclusive deals and promotions. It is significantly less expensive to keep loyal customers happy than finding new ones. "In fact, the probability of selling a product to an existing customer is 60-70 percent, while new customers carry a paltry 5-20 percent probability, according to Marketing Metrics."


Generate Leads Through Your Website CRM offers web-to-lead forms that can be embedded to your website and hence can be used to generate leads 24 hours a day. Customers are automatically logged as a prospect in the CRM when they enter their information in the form. CRM then automatically notifies the sales team to follow up with the customers and take the procedure forward.

Applications like Acuity Scheduling makes it easier by automating the process of maintenance email reminders. Clients can easily book their appointments by viewing your real-time availability and they can also make the payments online.
