Permission Marketing
“Permission Marketing encourages
clients to participate in a long-term
interactive marketing campaign in which
they are rewarded in some way for paying
attention to increasingly relevant messages.”
Anticipated – people look forward to hearing from you
Personal – message is directly related to the individual
Relevant – content is something they are interested in

Retention vs. Acquisition
• 80% of your business comes from 20% of your customers
• It is significantly more difficult and expensive to recruit a
new customer vs. retaining an existing customer
• On average, US small businesses lose 50% or more of
their customers each year
• Every company suffers from defections
• Most of them don’t monetize these losses
• If a valuable piece of physical inventory were missing, we
would turn the place upside-down looking for it
