Email marketing is communicating with current and future customers with an independent communication channel, which is email. Have you ever thought it is one of the most successful online marketing tactics? You can use it in many different ways: sending newsletters, offers, company updates and other relevant information to your customers. There are billions of email accounts on the world and most the internet users check their mailboxes every day. If you do it well, email is the most beneficial communication channel.
As shown in many different types of research and surveys, email marketing often has higher conversion rates than any other marketing actions. According to McKinsey, the average value of an email is at least 3x higher than the average value of social media posts.
In addition, it’s cheaper than traditional marketing tactics as advertisements or print media. It requires only a bit of time and resources to develop eye-catching content, as opposed to for example printing leaflets. In addition, it’s easy to measure your email marketing campaign effects! By checking email open rate you can see how many people opened your message and even what percentage of them have clicked call-to-action (CTA) button.
