Hello Monday May 24th, 2021

“A small list that wants exactly what you’re offering is better than a bigger list that isn’t committed.”
Ramsay Leimenstoll

Size truly doesn't matter!

Whether you have 500 contacts or 5000 contacts on your email list, it is irrelevant.

The focus isn't on building the list; it is about creating engagement.

What's the best way to see if you have an engaged list?

Send them an email with a link for more information.

Contacts that are engaged will click the link.

Don't think that having an above-average open rate means your emails are working.

You need to measure your engagement by click through rates.

Something to watch.

Just a thought

Want to be a mind reader?

There are so many systems out there collecting data on your purchase history.

But how does it track a purchase you would have made, but the item wasn't there to purchase?


Hang on; the thought is, how do you know if you were missing something off your menu? How do you figure out that the guest might give you an extra visit if you offered something different?

Well, you could hook up every guest to a mind-reading machine, or part of your sales funnel can be to ask a simple question.If you could add a dish to our menu, what would it be?

It is amazing what you might learn if you ask.

Thanks for reading this week's mashup.
