Why do Email Marketing?<br />Communicate directly to all your customers & prospects<br />at the exact time you want to reach them,<br />at a much lower cost than its substitutes (e.g. direct mail)<br />and get an amazing ROI (4352% average in 2009).<br />Create awareness, buzz, interest and anticipation with business customers.<br />Track your subscribers’ activity: measure open, click & conversion rates; identify which of your recipients are responding to your messages, target them and reply with a highly-personalized, behavior/interest-based offer.<br />Introduce recently launched offers to your customers and prospects.<br />Build a community of loyal recipients and interact with this permission-based list of customers to improve your products and services.<br />Generate business and more importantly repeat business affordably and automatically.<br />Uncover and address questions and objections.<br />Make your marketing greener (paper-free).<br />
Email Marketing Continues Healthy Growth<br />Marketers continue their love affair with email marketing: 97% of marketers are using or planning to use email marketing in 2010. Although the slowest growth rate of any interactive channel, email marketing will see an 11% CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) over the next five years because of:<br />A current email renaissance. Email marketing is having a banner year as marketers: 1) grow their lists with the promise of “green marketing”; 2) turn on more and smarter programs to boost sluggish sales; 3) shift money to email from direct mail; and 4) improve email effectiveness by linking it to other channels like search or user-generated ratings and reviews.<br />Growth in marketing due to the social inbox. Today, consumer communications via social networks have substituted for some regular email use. But ultimately, we expect that the social inbox — both literal inboxes within social networks and other messaging forums à la Twitter that are still to come — will be another place where email marketers can reach target users.<br />
