Drip marketing is a kind of lead nurturing that is offered up in a measured campaign. It often takes place over a number of weeks or even as long as a year. The term comes from "drip irrigation," which delivers measured amounts of water during the planting process. With drip marketing, think of yourself as a farmer nurturing seeds that will become plants – or, in your case, clients.
During an email campaign, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) will take notice if just a few recipients click on your message to report it as spam.
ISPs continuously monitor their networks for "abuse" reports, and if your company brings up even a few, they will block you from sending email from their servers. It's a classic case of "guilty until proven innocent", and often results from users who simply hit the spam button to unsubscribe.
In creating email campaigns today marketers have to ensure they use "responsive design" templates that allow messages to be read on any mobile design.
More than 50 percent of emails are read on iPads, smartphones, tablets and other designs. People pull out their mobile phones more than 150 times a day, on average, so you need to appeal to that audience.

An avalanche of media attention has been focused on the alleged marketing juggernaut of Facebook, Google + and Twitter.
Facebook has 1.5 billion users and a devoted following – the average American user spends 40 minutes daily on the platform. They spend around 20 minutes in the gym.
Google +, not nearly as potent, still has a commanding audience of millions. Twitter signs up 135,000 new users daily and experiences 2.1 billion searches of its content every day.
Autoresponders send messages to subscribers and customers based on dates or events.
When someone signs up for your newsletter or email program, you can program an “autoresponder” to send a message in return. Autoresponders can also be used for birthday greetings and other important anniversaries.
Social media has been getting plenty of headlines as a growing platform for reaching people with products and services.
Yet its reach and effectiveness continue to pale in comparison with email. The quickest way to reach potential customers in a direct and personal way remains through the inbox. Even as mobile takes off, email remains the king of communications since all those people on all those devices are spending much of their time…reading their emails.
