How to Customize your Ad Audiences
Is your email list performing as well for you now as it did last year?
If you’re like many tourism pros, you may be finding that your e-list isn’t generating the bookings it used to. These days, savvy marketers find more marketing touch points are needed to generate a booking.
Using the long arm of marketing, it’s now possible to target social ads to people on your email list. What a great way to maximize your touch points and reach the right people.
Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and by association Instagram, give you the option to upload your email list and then create an ad audience of your list members. On Facebook, choose the “Customer List” option in Ads Manager.
Let’s think about the out-of-the-box options here. You could create an email list of people whose email addresses have bounced, then upload that to your favorite social site. Since many people don’t change the email address associated with their social account when they switch jobs, you’ll now have an opportunity to reach them socially.
Similarly, you can create an email list of people who haven’t opened your emails recently. Uploading this list to your social media ad platforms gives you a way to reach these people in a channel that may work better for them.
