Email Marketing is Not Dead!

“Email marketing is old school!” Yes, email has been around for a while but it’s still a very powerful part of digital marketing, and shouldn’t be over-looked. Here’s how it could help your brand.

Email is used by 2.9 billion people!

Email marketing is:

  • Effective in terms of ROI
  • Targeted
  • Cheap
  • Consistent
  • Mobile friendly
  • Used by half the world’s population

Email operates brilliantly for companies keeping in touch with their customers, for companies sending out transactional ‘your payment has been received’ type messages and for consumers requiring regular updates on a range of services.

It’s very much a preview and review channel with a bias toward business to business (B2B) marketing. Email marketing is excellent at helping in the conversion process and building loyalty within your brand’s customer base
