Even if a business has an active social media presence, ‘old fashioned’ email marketing is still a key to success.

Email marketing has many advantages. A business can directly connect with their target audience. It’s easy, cost effective, and offers a high return on investment. Email marketing is not dead, but very much alive!

Email Marketing Stats

Let’s take a look at the numbers. There are four billion daily email users, and that number is expected to climb to 4.6 billion by 2025. An estimated 64% of small businesses use email marketing to reach customers. Fifty percent of people buy from marketing emails at least once a month. An estimated 99% of consumers check their email daily. Email marketing has an average ROI (return-on-investment) of $36 for every $1 spent.

Are you ready to kick-off a campaign? Here are some email marketing strategies that will help your message stand out in the crowd.

Personalized Content

Emails that include the first name of the recipient in the subject line have a much higher click through rate. Email content can also be personalized to focus on the needs of your audience. Try using different images and subject lines to increase engagement. You can also make separate email lists based on geography, interests, and engagement levels.

Customer Feedback

You can obtain feedback by sending customer satisfaction surveys through email campaigns. Use this information to find ways to improve your customer experience.

Improve Sales

Email marketing campaigns can highlight products or services, encourage customers to buy after they abandon their shopping cart, or feature special offers. It’s estimated that revenue from email marketing campaigns will reach almost $11 billion by the end of 2023. Also, 59% of respondents say marketing emails have influenced their purchases.

With email marketing, you can automate part of your sales process which can help increase sales. You can also include messages to encourage those who have already opted in to your email list to make a purchase. Keeping in touch with your target audience on a regular basis can make a big difference.

Increase Website Traffic

Emails are a great way to get customers to visit your website and improve your SEO. When you create an email that has relevant links to your content, include a timely call to action that will also send readers to your site. You can use emails to get people to check out great features, like blogs, on your website as well.

Emails Add Value

Email marketing is also a great way to add value for your audience when they aren’t making a purchase. Give them information they will find useful, offer a free download or links to resources, and be an expert on your company’s products and services. Turn your prospects into loyal customers by creating a relationship with them and offering valuable content.

Email List Building

Email marketing is one of the top ways to reach your audience. Building an email list and keeping it updated is key for marketers. This is a valuable list of customers you own and can contact at any time. It is yours to keep, even if you switch email providers. Platforms like social media may not be reliable in the future. Imagine Facebook shutting down and taking your contacts and followers too. Have a backup system!
