Email marketing is one of the most left-out gems nowadays when growing a business due to the misconception that it doesn’t work anymore. Email marketing has numerous advantages as it’s targeted, measurable and cost-effective. You can even engage effectively with your customers through email, either to ask questions, do A/B testing or remind them about your offers and discounts.
“If Social Media is the cocktail party, then email marketing is the ‘meet up for coffee’. The original 1 to 1 channel.” Erik Harbison

- Email marketing is a targeted strategy as the emails you’re sending out are of the demographics and interest you’re choosing.
- It is cost-effective as its ROI is much higher than other marketing strategies as it doesn’t need ad space, printing, or advertising rates.
- According to the Direct Marketing Association: for every $1 you spend on email marketing, you get $40 in return.
