Emma – An Email Marketing Company That Gets Women

Emma logo  

While I was wandering the halls of the Email Marketing Summit, there were plenty of vendor booths promoting their services.  But one stuck out for me.

On the sign it said "Meet Emma – Say hello to the Web's most stylish email marketing service."  Friendly verbiage and a logo featuring a woman's face.  Ok – you got my attention.

Emma, (the name comes from a shortening of Email Marketing) is all about helping small businesses be more stylish and sophisticated in their email marketing efforts.

They've done a first-rate job of creating a distinctive brand personality.   And a very female friendly one at that.

Why Emma does a great job of marketing to women

Emma has a distinctive, consistent voice.  It is friendly, human and fun.  This voice is consistent in everything Emma does, from their website, to their brochures to their conference booths.  Here are some examples:

Emma makes it simple

Every explanation Emma gives is simple.  They have specifically designed their product to be simple and easy to use.  Very female friendly.

Emma puts an emphasis on customer experience

Every person I spoke to could not have been nicer or more engaging.  Rachael Kahne, Community Development Coordinator, told a great story – "Clients are always coming up to me at conferences.  When I tell them my name, they just hug me."   Love that.  Clients know the customer service folks by name.  Emma provides real, live, responsive support for all their clients.  They are extremely accessible.   Rachael tributes their high customer retention rates to this focus on friendly, human customer support.

In an industry where it's sometimes hard to feel like you have a real connection, Emma's keeping it personal

While they may not have specifically targeted women, providing this kind of attention to customer service, focus on customer needs, and simple, personable approach will certainly bring in female as well as male clients.

  1. If you are successfully reaching your customers with targeted, creative messages and receiving a good response rate, you may not need outside help. But if your marketing efforts are falling short of your goals, or you are looking for new ways to expand your efforts, you should consider hiring an email marketing firm.

  3. sales leads says:

    Therefore, if I send out 100 emails in a day I will get an average of 200 back for a total of 300 emails processed in one day.

  4. If I had a nickel for every time I was asked, “How can I improve my open rate?” I’d probably be able to go on a shopping spree (okay, that’s wishful thinking). But it’s a question on all of our minds because we put valuable time and resources toward creating and sending email campaigns.
