Question… Have you seen the new Star Wars movie
“The Force Awakens”?
It was a blockbuster hit here in the U.S. (I’m honestly not sure how it did everywhere else), and people seemed to drool over it like a newbie Marketer drools over a big time “goorooo”.
I thought it was ok at best, but in my humble opinion, it wasn’t anything to write home about.
Actually, my girlfriend fell asleep in the theatre, and considering it’s 3D action flick, well that’s saying a-lot in of it-self.
Seeing how goofy she looked passed out with those 3D glasses hanging down on her nose was worth the price of admission itself though. lol 😉 shhhhhh
Earlier today I saw a little commercial for it (I think it’s out on blue-ray or something), and I had a little bit of a realization about how the movies plot and the “Jedi” is metaphorically speaking spot on when it comes to our industry and e-mail.
Here’s what I mean:
In the movie, all of the badass Jedis that we’re used to have been missing in action for quite some time, and people are starting to question there powers as a whole.
The dark side is beginning to take full control over the galaxy, and in general, peoples beliefs about the possibility of a brighter future are fading faster than ever.
People think that the dark side is the only way to go, and all hope is close to being lost.
And well, that’s EXACTLY what’s going on with e-mail marketing in our industry.
As of late we’ve had multiple “Jedi Knight e-mail writers” leave the scene (more or less due to the fact that they simply want to explore new areas of their life non business related)…
…And at the same time we’ve had social media product after social media product after social media product launch onto the scene.
All the big time ”goorooos” know that Social Media is what’s new and hot on the scene, and as a result, they’ve taken to selling it faster than a
Jedi knight can wield there lightsaber.
This has left the industry as a whole doubting whether or not e-mail is actually still powerful, and doubting whether or not they should put in the time to learn the craft.
So… Here’s my take…
E-mail is ABSOLUTELY still most powerful one to many selling medium available of the Internet.
Yes, you can build a relationship with videos or with Social Media or with whatever new “Twitterscope” may happen to pop up on the scene…
But if you actually want to make a lot of SALES… (which I think in the end is why we’re all in business), e-mail still remains king.
Take it from me, there’s noting like sitting back, taking about 30 minutes to write up a killer e-mail, and then sending it out and watching the cash roll in.
My business did well over $100,000 worth of sales (actually the exact number is closer to the $150,000 mark)… And 95% of those sales are driven through e-mail marketing.
If you do the math, considering that I send 1-2 e-mails per day… that’s an average of about $2,500 to $5,000 worth of revenue per e-mail sent.
Now to be clear, I say none of this to brag or to inflate my own ego, but to instead simply illustrate the power it can have in your business if you choose to learn it, apply it, and master it.
Don’t let the dark side of Internet Marketing (gurus who launch whatever, whenever, just to make a quick buck) influence your decision making as to where you should focus your energy.
E-mail is, and always will be king when it comes to good ol fashion “money getting”.
