  1. I own my own franchise fashion store and have utilized emails to inform customers of latest trends, stock and discount offers exclusive to email subscribers.
    To entice customers I have a list on the front counter at the check out and whoever signs up has the opportunity to get 10% off their next visit which entices a lot of people, therefore I’m getting repeat customers (everyone likes a saving). We are users of Pinterest and Facebook, I can’t believe I didn’t have a link from our e newsletter to pinterest.. We only have Facebook. Again thank you so much for some awesome tips! Very helpful

  2. Having a signup form on your checkout is a great way of not forcing customers to sign up (I hate nothing more than when they ask for my email and i don’t want to sign up) I personally only sign up for stores that i visit regularly so my email isn’t filled with millions of store emails. Glad these tips have helped make your businesses marketing platforms better!
