Keep current up to date email addresses since these are vital to avoid any loss of time in expectation of a reply.

Presentation of your idea in your email is extremely important; either it is an eye catcher right away or something that will be deleted out of their email very quickly. First impression can work wonders, in terms of landing the right market you are looking for!

Make a plan for a follow up email when you receive positive interest and feedback. A thank you message for any purchase or subscription will be greatly appreciated and further the possibilities of any future business association.

Be prepared to respond quickly if more information or graphics are requested concerning your product or idea. You may want to consider an email autoresponder to reply rapidly to an email, until you can further follow up with your own response.

Keep detailed records of email contacts to eliminate any misunderstandings that may occur for orders or requests for further information.

An email newsletter at least once a month is a good idea in keeping your clients or customers up to date on any current business acquisitions and improvements. Keeping your email recipients satisfied is a major feat!
