Effective Email Marketing

effective email marketing, mass marketing tips, email tips

Presenting yourself and your organization in a way that gets someone’s attention through email can be a very difficult and time consuming process. Often, you don’t even know if anyone is reading your email. So, how can you make email marketing work for you? The following 3 tips can help you make an impact and stand out from all those other emails:

  1. Ask questions – by asking questions your audience can relate to, it makes the email recipient feel a connection, like the email is directed toward them, not just a mass message to everyone (e.g., if you are selling flowers, ask “What’s your favorite flower?”);
  2. Keep it short – people check their email on their phone, at the office, while commuting, while they’re bored, when they’re not really interested in reading a full page of information. By keeping it short, you have a better chance of the email recipient actually reading the whole email. Bullet points are your friend!;
  3. Specific rewards for actions – if people know exactly what they will get from doing what you ask of them, they will be more inclined to act. If there is no call to action, there is no sense of urgency to act and most people need to feel that push in order to actually act. If there is no reward for following that call to action, there is no benefit for the email recipient.

Human Resource San Diego Roundtable

human resource roundtable san diego, human resource event san diego
The topic for this month’s Human Resource Roundtable meeting is California’s new sick leave provisions for employees. The new law is more complex than some expected, and ambiguities remain the subject of conversation. Many already providing paid sick time and/or PTO/vacation to employees may not be aware of all of the subtleties contained in this new law and how current policies may be impacted. Those responsible for the development of employer policies, the administration of employee benefits, and supervising employees need to be aware of these subtleties. The DLSE will be enforcing this new law, and the penalties for non-compliance are stiff. If you have not yet registered to attend the program on Wednesday, but wish to attend, there is still time register.
Linda Aguilar, Senior Deputy Labor Commissioner of the San Diego office of the DLSE, will provide information about the new law and answers to questions on topics such as:
  • Employer options for compliance;
  • How to properly implement new policies in accordance with the new law;
  • Impact on current policies on sick time, vacation time, and PTO;
  • What employers can and can’t do to regulate time off;
  • Usage for diagnosis, care, and treatment of an existing condition, as well as for preventive care;
  • Definition of “family members” and how much time can be taken for the diagnosis, care, and treatment of a family member’s existing condition, as well as for preventive care for a family member;
  • Notice, recordkeeping, and posting requirements;
  • Restrictions on asking for medical provider certification to verify need for absence;
  • How the new law may impact disciplinary policies regarding excessive absences;
  • How to pay employees who take sick time – how much and when;
  • How the new law may interact with other benefits, leaves, and policies, including FMLA/CFRA, Kin Care, State Disability Insurance, and Paid Family Leave; and
  • Rebuttable presumption of unlawful retaliation and penalties for non-compliance.
Handouts will be provided and, as always, Commissioner Aguilar will answer questions on other subjects, too.
The program will be held at Bernardo Heights Country Club, located in Rancho Bernardo at 16066 Bernardo Heights Parkway. The cost is just $45 per person and lunch is included.We have scheduled some time for networking from 11:30 to noon in order for attendees to get to know others. Lunch and the presentation are scheduled to commence at noon.
