How much email marketing is too much?

This is something I wrestle with personally.  At the moment I am busy promoting my new online MyProsperityForum site.  My target market is risk insurance (i.e. life insurance & income protection) advisers, financial planners and home loan professionals.  I am also about to start a keyword and social media campaign to drive traffic directly to the site.

But back to the email issue!  I am emailing other financial professionals to let them know what a great resource this innovative forum is for them personally as well as the enormous benefits for their clients.

Whilst I don’t want to send emails too often, I do want them to know the benefits of using and referring their clients to the forum.  But how much is too much?

I am reasonably well known in the financial planning and business coaching Brisbane communities so I don’t want my emails relegated to the spam box.   That outcome will only serve to tarnish my good reputation.

But I do want to get my messages across.  For example:

  • Non-financial planning financial advisers are regularly asked questions outside their field of expertise.  MyProsperityForum is a perfect solution.
  • Some people, even clients of financial planners, are personal finance DIYs who are very interested in understanding the many tricky financial planning concepts as they apply to both individuals and business owners.  MyProsperityForum is the ideal solution and a service option not available or offered in the past
  • Many people can’t afford to or are reluctant to consult a financial planner.  Again, MyProsperityForum is a perfect solution
  • A lot of people simply want to ask questions of a knowledgeable professional without any obligation or product push.  There is also a lot of value at MyProsperityForum in seeing what other people ask.
  • People want difficult financial concepts (e.g. personal risk insurance, investment, superannuation, retirement, estate planning) explained in plain English.  MyProsperityForum already has such content uploaded in easy-to-read article form

You must check out this website!

Check it out!

MyProsperityForum is one of the most innovative websites ever.  If you are interested in your own prosperity, you can join the forum and ask questions about anything to do with personal finances or business planning.  This includes budgets, debt, investment, insurance, superannuation, retirement, insurance, or even starting a business income.

The beauty of this forum is there is not the usual product push or pressure to fork out money for a financial plan.  It is a safe place to find out how to get ahead financially; and there is always a financial planning expert on hand to answer your questions and guide you.  This site is perfect if you’re a DIY, don’t want to spend lots of money, or if you just want to learn to be better with money.  There is even a private message service if you want to ask a silly question.

There are heaps of great articles already posted in the forum.  To name just a few:

  • The ugly truth about ‘no medicals’ life insurance
  • Improve your personal finances – 10 ways to get started
  • The power of a good risk insurance adviser
  • Putting money away for the kids
  • My top 10 tips for a prosperous retirement

Just in case you don’t get enough value from having a financial expert to yourself and reading the plain English articles, there is also a 220-page e-book called “Recession Riches and Wealth”.

I strongly recommend you check out this unique forum www.myprosperityforum.com
