To be successful with your customers in social networks, follow these steps and you will be able to increase the number of subscribers you have, and have more success in their email marketing campaigns:
• Keep your message simple- Simply write something short about the newsletter you send out, not many explanations, not complicated messages will be read.
• Give reasons to Share- When writing your newsletter, think about the reasons why you would share. If you have more than one reason then you are on the right track (think like the customer). Remember that if you make more people want to share their news bulletins on social networks, there is a high probability that you get more subscribers. So give reasons to share, do promotions, contests and good information.
• Know that social networks use your contacts more- Learn the most popular social networks among your subscribers and focus on those. It’s not worth putting much effort into a network if a minimum percentage of your subscribers use it. Take your time and investigate the preferences of your subscribers, you can do a survey if you wish.

Now days social networks allow you to grow your mailing list. Subscribers have become more susceptible to the information they want to receive in their inbox. For those two reasons you must take advantage of the tools provide it by social networks; to show readers how good your newsletters are and encourage them to subscribe to receive them.
So it is best that aside from the subscription form you have on your website, you should also include it in your Facebook page. For example, you may have some users that visit your Facebook page and would never enter your web page, so if you have your subscription form available in your fan page your customers will be able to subscribe to receive your newsletters. So putting the format of the subscription form in your Facebook page will not only help you grow your list but it will also keep your list ICANN compliance since all emails will be opt in.

Dear Blog Readers,
Emailbrain wants to wish you a very happy Halloween.
Please enjoy our Pumpkin Brain, if you have not seen it before
We advise you to follow the next 5 steps:
Step#1 – Analyze your last years’ campaign
First of all, take a look at your last Christmas, and ask yourself the following questions.
What was your plan last Christmas? Did your plan work? Did the subject line impact your open rate? How did clients react to the quantity of emails you sent during Christmas time?
Watch your client’s behavior and you’re your competitors
What did they do, that you should have done? Collect analysis from your team on what products sold the most, which did not, which ones gave the best profit.
Get a conclusion, based on all previously mentioned, what approach should you take this year? What should you advertise with more emphasis? What type of offers would you like to make?
Step#2 Notification Emails
Do not lose any opportunity during Christmas time, make sure to add promotions to invoices or notification emails, anything could be a sale for you.
Step#3 Segment your list
Make sure to send emails to recipients who truly want to receive the content you are sending them, because in Christmas time is the time of the year when recipients receive more emails, and if its not in their interest, they will not even look at your email.
Step#4 Do not forget your social network-
Make sure that your promotions and email campaigns can be exposed in all your Social Network, that way the amount of leads can increase!
Step#5 Send an email to wish all your clients a happy holidays.
Do not include any offer or promotion; simply make your client feel important.

We promised you more social share options, didn’t we? They’re finally here!
We’ve extended our social share tool to enable you to share your newsletters, not only on Facebook and Twitter, but also on Google, My Space, Yahoo and LinkedIn!
Not sure what social share is? Don’t worry, I sometimes struggle to keep up with all our new features myself. Social share is a tool that enables you to share your newsletters with your friends and followers on all the social networks I just mentioned. Basically, you’re able to publish your newsletter to your social network profile on Facebook, Twitter, etc. It will show up as a brief description of your newsletter along with a link to the full newsletter.
The handy thing is that you can now do it all from within your Emailbrain account, without having to log in and post updates on all your social accounts (and you probably have quite a few) manually. We also have an URL shortener, that will automatically shorten the link to your newsletter for you. It looks more appealing that way and it’s especially useful on Twitter where you’re limited to 140 characters.
We realize how important it is in today’s marketing environment to integrate and automate your various marketing channels. It’s the only way to stop on top of it all – email, social, mobile… So we’re trying to make it a little easier.
Please note: We recently announced that we were temporarily suspending the Twitter social share option due to technical difficulties. Twitter social share is once again available along with the launch of these new social share options.

Good morning to all…
Before I start today’s topic I would like to invite you to our Facebook and Twitter page and tell us what topic you would like to see in our blog. Remember that this blog is made especially for you!
It really depends on how you see it. The single opt in is simpler and faster to use. As soon as a person puts their details on the subscription form they are already subscribed and can start receiving your emails. However, the negative part of single opt-in is that anyone can write out anyone’s email address in the subscription form, and then the real person can make a spam complaint because it was not really them who opted in, but a competitor for example. Also, even if he/she is the same subscriber who opts in but misspells a letter of the whole email address then they will not be added.
The double opt in is more work because after a client first opt ins, then he/she needs to go to his/her email and confirm that they have opted in. This will confirm that the person who subscribed to a certain email address is really the owner of such email address account. The negative side is that many people can either not receive the email or if they do but they do mot click on the link. And, by consequence it will be a subscriber less than you will have in your list.
So now that both opt ins are explained to you, Which one will you feel more comfortable using and why?
