Why should you carry out email marketing to the public sector?

The UK’s public sector is a valuable, yet complex sector to break into.

Where B2B marketers often find success with social media and other forms of digital marketing, the public sector looks to other channels when looking for new suppliers.

Direct marketing offers a unique advantage within this sector.

It relies on the supplier connecting directly with the organisation’s they feel most need and could benefit from their products and services.

An email marketing strategy is one of the best ways you can communicate this information.

Our managed email marketing service, allows you to communicate directly with budget-holding decision makers within the following types of organisations:

  • central government,
  • MPs and Lords,
  • local government,
  • parish councils,
  • NHS,
  • care homes,
  • dentists,
  • further and higher education, and
  • housing associations.

The information contained on our databases is designed specifically for direct marketing campaigns.

Why 12 months’ email marketing to public sector buyers makes a difference

We organise email marketing campaigns to the public sector in 12-month blocks for our clients.

Our job is to give your company the greatest opportunity of making the highest possible return on your investment.

Sending just one email to public sector decision makers for marketing purposes will not produce the results you want.

You gain no benefit from only being seen one time because of:

  • the extended buying cycle in the public sector,
  • the more complicated decision-making process,
  • the higher values attached to tenders, and
  • the greater scrutiny over purchases made using public money.

It’s much more effective to send a regular email newsletter to decision makers once a month if you want to build a relationship with them.

Prior to engaging with you, buyers and influencers need to feel that:

  • they know your company,
  • they trust in your experience and expertise, and
  • you understand the pressure they’re under to make the right decision.

Choosing your marketing approach to the public sector

Public sector supplier are often required to navigate long and complex buying cycles and decision-making processes.

This means that you need to approach marketing and selling to the public sector differently to the way you market and sell to other businesses.

During our initial consultation, we develop a strong understanding of:

  • your products or services,
  • the types of public sector organisations which need them, and
  • the departments and decision makers within these organisations responsible for placing orders for your products and services.

When we have agreed the correct targets with you, we then storyboard an email campaign with the aim of effectively and meaningfully connecting with these buyers and influencers.

Your storyboard outlines the message we propose for your email and how it will help your company achieve the objectives you have for the campaign.

You’ll play a major part in the drafting process of each email, and we only send out emails which you’ve signed off in full.
