What is Drip Marketing?
Drip stands for Differentiate, Reinforce, Inform and Persuade and was created by Chris Fill. It is a marketing strategy where the business owners send a limited number of emails to their customers/audience automatically, on a set timing, based on actions they take or changes in their status. Businesses use drip marketing to keep in touch with the audience in a personalized targeted way.
Drip marketing is useful because it allows you to engage with your audience more efficiently. Emails are likely to be relevant as they have a better chance of getting a response.
