In today’s post, we would like to share Artur’s story about his dream business.

 

Once upon a time…

Artur is a super positive and energetic person, who doesn’t find it difficult to find himself in various environments. Always happy takes what’s best in life. One day Artur decided to change his career path and open his own online shop. After tough planning the concept of his business, setting up a website and an ideal online shopping platform, Artur noticed that the number of customers is relatively low. Therefore, full of fear, he decided upon starting a marketing plan and promoting his online shop on the Internet. Bull’s eye it was indeed.

The number of customers started to increase as well as his business.

Later on, Artur realised that neither the tools he was using were sufficient nor the human resources he owned. In the critical moment of losing hope, he came across an email marketing tool that would take care of his client database and manage the whole email marketing strategy he had planned.

As a smart entrepreneur, Artur believes the limit is the sky. By finding NetSendo with no limits his dream of automatisation of his business, finally could be reached.

The best way to show what storytelling is…to tell a story, isn’t it?

Artur’s story is our way of storytelling in its purest form. Storytelling is a very popular and magical technique, in marketing , of evoking emotions and interest among the readers.

Do you recall the grandma, uncle or your mum telling you a story? These are the best memories, right? And this is the feature of storytelling that takes its toll on the receivers. The way we create the feelings and awake the imagination reflects on the need of our readers to gain more and more.

Stories are for children?

Having a look at storytelling in e-mail marketing, it can be easily stated that it delivers measurable and positive outcomes for a brand. The list of advantages coming from storytelling in marketing is universal and can be applied to any marketing sector.

  • Storytelling evokes feelings and interest in a reader.
  • Usually, storytelling makes the reader take actions
  • While unique storytelling, we can distinguish ourselves from competitors. A great example here would be a beer brand Żubr (in English: wisent). By creating stories with the animal as a star, Żubr provokes the reader to collocate the animal and its superpowers with the brand.
  • Exciting stories stay in the readers’ minds for much longer.
  • Storytelling correlation with email marketing and other communication channels is relatively easy.
  • The open rate and CTR index increase thanks to storytelling.
