Ross: Check out our testimonials page here
PAN: How many contacts?
Ross: Over 50,000 Hi-Protein image buyers worldwide and growing…
But the number that matters is the right number for you – and your images.
PAN: How regularly checked?
Ross: Every company re-verified every 90 days – every email re-verified every month – It’s fresh.
PAN: Do I need a ready-to-go campaign?
Ross: No we will help you at the way to set up and send your marketing campaigns – but if you do have one ready to go right now we can import that for you and make it better : )
PAN: What works best for a marketing email? a photo or words?
Ross: Both. Lead with 1-3 strong hero images and back them up with a 20 good words and a Call to Action. Simple.
PAN: Do I include my contact details on a campaign or direct people to my website?
Ross: Both. Let the image buyer click the images to go to your site to see more and also have the option of calling or emailing you direct.
PAN: How long does a typical marketing email take to set up …and send?
Ross: 1 hour to set up… 1 hour to schedule and send it out, at the right time in the right time zones.
PAN: How long should I wait to do any follow ups? by phone? or resend?
Ross: 24 hours. Strike while the iron is hot… they just saw your brand and your work – get on the phone!
PAN: How many times should I email prospective new contacts?
Ross: Every 6-8 weeks – providing you have something to show – which you will if you do this regularly throughout the year.
PAN: Should I edit the list or just send to all in a category?
Ross: Never email bomb image buyers – ALWAYS refine your list… time spent on list building is time very well spent.
PAN: OK – so how to I join?
