How To Acquire Classified Customer Emails?
mass2one works with your newspaper to establish an email and permission
collection program using existing customer contact points: online classifieds,
classified call center, etc. Classified reps request an email address and
permission to communicate by email at the time the classified ad is ordered.
This effort requires training of classified staff to establish email and
permission collection as a standard operating procedure. Experience shows
that email collection rates start with 15% of all advertisers providing
their email and permission and grow as classified reps gain experience.
Many classified systems are capable of storing a customer email address.
Older systems may require additional programming to collect and maintain
customer emails and permission. We recommend capturing the date the email
was collected or last updated, as well as email opt-in status
to support the ongoing maintenance of customer emails and permission.
