2021 started with a mood of mixed optimism and hopes that the storm which accompanied Covid-19 could now be weathered. Through these sweet-sour times of hopes and challenges, Blue Mail Media has remained true to its purpose of building futures and helping businesses identify opportunities, increase pipeline and revenue with high-quality data solutions.
FY21 brought challenges for our teams and the businesses we support, but we continued to evolve and thrive. Our strength and momentum could not be possible without our people’s hard work and dedication. As we reflect on the year 2021, we can proudly say that we were able to adapt swiftly and efficiently in response to the successes and setbacks that came our way. Here’s a summary of how we successfully stayed in step with changing market and consumer behavior and how we plan to continue this success streak as we step into the new year.
Making the most of the situation
Covid-19 and the days after witnessed a surge in digital transformation. As the organizations had to endure a broad sweep of new pressure, including – changing customer demands, reconfigured supply chains, and increased workforce collaboration, emails emerged as a reliable and effective form of communication. We received unprecedented requests for email marketing and related services, which we were able to successfully fulfill – thanks to our proactive and efficient team, who predicted the demand with their data-driven insights.
Stay-at-home orders worldwide forced many companies without digital stores to leverage email marketing to communicate with their audience. Even the industries that scaled back their spending at the start of the pandemic ramped things up later using our email services.
Earlier in the year, open rates spiked at an average of 11.7%.
In simple words, email became the best way for our clients to communicate with their customers. Whether that was about the changes to their products or a new virtual event to connect with their customers, email marketing had its moment. Although in the times of the pandemic, no trend is predictable but there is one thing every expert agrees upon is that email marketing is here to stay and now is the time to invest more in email—not less.
The Strategies that Helped us Gain Ground And Make Our Brand Stronger
While 2020 was the year of several changes, 2021 can be defined as the year of evolving strategies to align and capitalize on those changes. As a part of our endeavor to keep our clients and other data partners connected and apprised of the changes going on within our organization, we ran several campaigns.
We released press releases regarding our latest ongoings, came up with a new Favicon- representing our business module and what we stand for, ran display campaigns to get more awareness among the businesses. Our other strategies included running a plethora of social media campaigns with a combination of videos, gifs, and various promotional offers. We also organized an event for marketers to help them realign their strategies in the post-covid-19 era. This event was hugely successful, thanks to our attendees and marketing experts who shared their valuable insights on designing effective marketing strategies to counter the immediate and long-term changes triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic.
All these campaigns and the efforts made by our team throughout the year paid off in the following ways:
Crossed The Milestone of Serving 4k+ Clients
The significant rise in demand for our services was massive, which resulted in us serving more than 4k businesses across the globe with data solutions. It would have been a distant dream for us if our clients had not placed trust in our data solutions and experts. To keep up with their expectations and be their reliable data partner, we always strive to keep the data accurate using artificial intelligence and human verification processes. Our clients trust us to deliver disruptive thinking and innovative data solutions that empower them to succeed. From large enterprises to digital startups, we build the data foundations behind some of the world’s most successful businesses.
Updated The Databases
An engaged list is a successful list. To ensure we offer our clients the most result-driven and productive lists, we update our database regularly and use our proprietary data management procedures to bring you the freshest data possible.We recently updated the b2b database to 100M+ and the consumer database to 200M+. We also created a company directory – a centralized platform to help businesses get complete details of other businesses.
Using this now, we are able to help the customers to expand their reach even more extensively.
Helped Our Clients Achieve More Success Despite The Challenges
Throughout 2021, we offered global business organizations clean and reliable data to fuel their multi-channel marketing campaigns, which helped them improve their conversion rate by more than 45% and increase their revenue by more than 200%.
If we were to describe 2021 as a whole, it portrayed a bright and optimistic future for data-driven digital marketing, which has seen its value cemented during these trying times. As we wrap up 2021 with a keen eye on revenue acceleration and, most importantly, customer satisfaction, we are making sure we are preparing to adopt and optimize our tactics and planning for the right strategic pivots to make our service even better for our customers.
