Email Marketing

Introduction to Email Marketing

Emails play a huge part in our everyday lives, allowing us to communicate quickly and effectively with minimal fuss, but is your business taking advantage of them?

Email should play a major role in any digital marketing strategy as it consistently provides excellent ROI for businesses online. While other trends have come and gone, emails have been crucial from day one in the world of digital marketing and from a business perspective, the pros far outweigh the cons.

Why Email?

Email accounts are at the centre of the internet. If you sign up for any new service online, you have to have an email address, and it is estimated that there will be 3.8 billion email users worldwide by 2019.

These numbers are impressive and it would be a mistake for any business to ignore the vast amount of potential customers you could reach through email. But, not only do emails have a wide reach, they are also a powerful tool when it comes to boosting your brand, increasing website traffic and crucially, increasing conversions.

An effective email marketing strategy is a great way of reaching new customers, but it is also brilliant at engaging those already on your mailing list and turning them into paying customers. It is one of the most useful marketing tools as in effect, it allows you to market your latest products or services, directly to a potential customers inbox.
