Another day at Kenscio Delhi Office- Vinni Abhishek

Now this is just the flat-out funniest blog I’ve ever been privileged to write dedicating a young lass Called Richa: Our campaign management Specialist (Refer to the girl in frame), a bagful of enormous talent with the gift of the gab deeply rooted in her blood. It never fails to make me laugh. And when I say laugh, I mean it almost never fails to make me double over laughing.

Not even a single incident on the planet have managed to escape her and every time she has got some links attached to the bits occurring in the world irrespective of the kinds of Barrack Obama to Rakesh Bhaiya serving tea in the red cup (Our Office Boy) and the icing on the cake is happenings of things on places like Chandigarh or Ambala more often than not.

“Han Han meri Na 1 didi hai WO v laal cup me hi chai deti hai sabo ko” or Mera na ek dost hai wo bhi America me rehta hai as if uske bol dene se Her didi would be deputed as our Office Girl or referring her friend as the Potential President of U.S”

In times to come, a declaration is floating in the air “All the words uttered by Richa(Refer to the girl in frame) are completely fictitious and have no resemblance to the real life”

But as the saying goes, “In the end its the end what matters the most”. With full of entertainment stuffs and coolness she is the one who helps us reduce the stress and make the workplace more enjoyable.

Kudos to the Sense of Humour in you !!Keep the tempo Going J

Give Customers the Power of Choice

Nothing is permanent except change.

Heraclitus (Greek Philosopher)           

People change and so do their interests, habits, hobbies etc. Hence, it’s safe to assume that your email subscribers will change. The question is whether you can adapt to this change.

Acknowledging this change doesn’t require you to revamp your email strategy every time your subscribers profile changes, instead it requires your email program to be flexible enough to let them choose what is right for them.

Research shows that subscribers (customers) will choose to maintain a deeper and long lasting relationship with you, when they are given the power of choice.

Furthermore, enabling subscribers to make choices makes them feel that they are in control and that they have the ability to dictate what and when they wish to hear from you. This increases the likelihood that they’ll look forward to your email messages and increases the chances that they’ll respond.

This is the power of preferences.

What are Preferences?

Preferences are what that differentiates your subscribers. These are information about your subscribers that allow you to tailor your communication to suit their needs. For example, some might eagerly look forward to a daily promotional mailer, where as other might find these annoying. Similarly, you may have various product or service to offer and your subscribers will prefer some over others.

Customer Preferences

What is an Email Preference Center?

An Email Preference Center allows your recipients to easily change their subscription details. This might include content type, frequency, interests in various offerings, ability to opt down or opt out etc.

Hidden Potential?

Preference Center gives you a means to know more about your subscribers. In addition to the basic information that is captured at the time of sign up, your preference center enables you to collect important information that will help improve and nurture your relationship with your subscribers.

Furthermore, marketers who use preference centers are more successful at retaining un-subscribers than the ones who don’t…

Pelase do not call me “0”- Personalization gone bad

Honestly I get a lot of emails today, but this one completely pissed me off to the core. No one calls me a zero. I dont know if people like to be called zero- its their preference.  But I mind  it, especially when this particular marketeer has been sending me emails left right and centre from so many days.

This is our “classic” case of personalization going bad. I would not know how many unsubscription the marketeer would have fetched on this but from a consumer’s point of view when he/ she is being targeted from all directions to get its attention( positive attention). When they are use to of getting email communication super personalized and super individualized, this would definitely surprise them.

Email is a critical medium and has worked wonders for a lot of business. But then today when there are so many people who are on this medium relevancy and addressing the recipient  becomes all the more important.

Digital Media Is Directly Measurable

Companies are increasingly turning to digital media marketing for marketing their brands as it is cost-effective and has maximum reach, since people spend a lot of time online. EFYTimes spoke exclusively to Manjunatha Kutarahalli, co-founder and CEO, Kenscio Digital Marketing Pvt Ltd about the scope and future of digital marketing.

What is the main difference between digital media marketing and social media marketing?

Digital media marketing is marketing using a broad set of digital media, which also includes social media. Digital Media marketing encompasses all digital media like websites, search engine optimisation (SEO), search engine marketing (SEM), video advertising, viral marketing, e-mail marketing and social media marketing.

How much have businesses started considering the seriousness and importance of social/ digital media marketing?

Businesses have understood the consumer behaviour for a long time and are using those channels where consumers are spending time, whether at home, or out of home or the places they are in or the newspapers, magazine they read, etc. As Consumer behavior and time is being spent more and more online, businesses are soon realising this and using the digital mediums (website visits, searches, e-mail, social, etc.) to reach, influence and engage with them. While in the West most of the people are online, businesses are spending more of their marketing budgets online, Indian business trend will soon follow the footsteps of Western businesses as Indian consumers are going online.

How and when was Kenscio Digital Pvt Ltd rolled out? Why the name Kenscio?

Kenscio started its roots as Sprinklr India in mid of 2009 and got its present name as Kenscio in mid of 2010, when it became a full-fledged company focusing on marketing solutions and services using digital direct mediums. It was founded by enterprising hard core experienced global digital media experts from e-mail and social background.
Ken means an expert or a guide and Scio is for social and e-mail. Hence, Kenscio was formed to assist marketers in reaching out to their customers through digital direct mediums of e-mail and social with the expert knowledge and solutions from Kenscio.

Everyone is online these days. How do you filter the right target audience? What is the most challenging task in your business?

People are getting online and spending much of the time online. Hence, businesses are trying to utilise the online medium in reaching out to them. Kenscio is focused on serving emerging high growth Internet based companies and large enterprises, which have successful digital marketing channels. The most challenging campaign for us is to get the marketers to send their campaigns to the right customer segments and measure the success by analytics beyond opens and clicks.

What is the importance of digital media marketing for SMBs? How can they leverage its benefits without spending too much?

Digital Marketing offers the most cost effective medium for SMBs, who don’t have big marketing budgets. Moreover, the digital media is directly measurable. From building a website, optimising it for Search engines, collecting the footprints of the visitors, communicating with the visitors, branding on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN, YouTube and articles, case studies on blogs etc are very cost effective.
Platforms like Facebook, Twitter allow companies to set up their own marketing pages. Do you see it as diluting the effects of the medium or is it viewed as an emerging trend for the industry?
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN and YouTube have more than several hundred online audiences and people spend considerable time on these mediums. Hence, companies are setting up their marketing pages on these social networking sites to get the audience that are hooked to these networks and build brand engagement, recall and sales. Facebook commerce is already happening now and now companies may not need a website as they can do everything on the Facebook itself from building a microsite, getting visitors and selling stuff. This makes the SMBs to get to market quickly without spending too much.

Can you share your clients and popular campaigns that received overwhelming response?

All of our client campaigns are receiving better responses through our expert advises and better targeting. One campaign can perform better than the other campaign of the same client, as the offer is better or timelier. Hence, it is very difficult to classify in general. One of our clients, Rupeemail recently launched the first newsletter which received an overwhelming response, with a CTR (Click-through rate, a measure of clicks to opens as a percentage) in excess of 200 per cent which is phenomenal for any campaign.

Weaving the SEO Magic on SMEs

For SMEs in India and abroad looking to make their mark online and connect to millions of potential customers, the Internet represents a golden opportunity. Developing a web presence is a natural extension for any business. However, Saurav Patnaik, Co-Founder and VP Marketing, Kenscio Digital Marketing Private Limited, an internet marketing company tells ITBizFocus.com that building a website is not enough and that small companies need good

(SEO) strategy in place to ensure that their websites generate a high quality traffic that can be converted into paying customers.

Why is email marketing important? How does it help a business generate revenue?

Emails help the businesses to reach the audience directly. It is measurable, economical and can be done faster compared to other traditional ways of doing marketing. Now, going back to the basics, to earn revenue, these businesses need to understand who are the people which are interested in buying proposition, what time can they be contacted, whether or not they qualify to buy your product and how are they willing to make a purchase. All this information can be captured analyzed and acted upon using emails… Once you know all this, businesses will be able to send individualized, relevant communications to generate revenue.

How important is branding to SMEs and startups? Is small business branding efforts wasted in direct marketing and sales?

It is very important for an SME or, a startup as it becomes all the more important for them to be in the minds of their customers and take communication to a much higher level (super personalized and individualized). So that their customers know that these companies really care and understand the needs.

What are your thoughts on small businesses relying on SEO?  How important it is for them to outsource their email marketing and social media marketing to specialists?

Search Marketing does help to get traffic on your website, however in the long run we need to engage them in the meaningful conversions. Thus, relying on SEO only will actually result in footfalls but to get these conversations you need emails and social media.

What are some emerging marketing opportunities in social media advertising? Could you kindly elaborate?

To be able to start the conversations over social media, businesses will need to provide clear call for actions….It need not necessarily be a Like or a follow on Facebook and Twitter respectively, it can also be an invitation to join the CEO for breakfast. I see an opportunity for Advertisements on Fan pages, cross promotional tweets, Email campaigns and lot more. The market in the US has already started doing such Social Advertising campaigns; you can see players like Daily Candy doing it over Facebook.

What advice would you give entrepreneurs looking to use email marketing and also to small business owners who are just starting on the Internet?

My only advice is that focus on your audience, be relevant (talk about your customers, not what you sell) and be aware of where your target audience is over internet to know which tool to use.

Make some killer sales this “Holi”

Spike in search for "Holi"

 

As we can clearly see that, there is an obvious spike in the search for “Holi” across India. So the first question is that are you putting Holi in your subject lines, if not you could- attracts more clicks and opens in this week.

The next thing is that who all it will work for?

 

 

 

The top spike is seen in Bihar Jamshedpur and Patna

 

 

 

Rajasthan-Jaipur and Udaipur come second

 

 

 

 

Gurgaon shows a great volume of searches

Gurgaon comes third and follows the rest of the northern states like Delhi, UP, Punjab, and States like Gujarat, Assam, Madhya Pradesh. Surprisingly the other states did not seem to have much traction about the festival- well none of them are actively looking for the things that they would want to do or, looking at things related to Holi. There could be multiple reasons for it- this time Holi is coming on a weekday being one of it, or, it comes right in the middle of the exam season for them.

Well beside all the factors and after analyzing the results with last year people are eagerly waiting for Holi messages in their mail boxes and Facebook walls. However, this year as there are more smart marketers :) the empowered consumer is looking beyond elementary propositioning- So dont just write Holi Celebrations or, XY% off on Holi or, any such vague lines. Discuss it with your Client Success Manager or , just tell them what you want to sell or, what inventory is in excess this season ;).

For other marketers who are serious about their business but yet not with us- There is no excuse for missing an opportunity or, a bad job.

Things to consider:

  • What is a number of audience that fall in the category of states mentioned above?
  • Are they male or, female?
  • What are the cultural factors that affect their decisions?
  • What do you want them to feel reading you subject line?
  • And last but the most importantly why your Holi message?
So go ahead and make some killers sales this festive season :).
P.S. Holi also falls on international Women’s day.
