Take a look at your personal inbox.
How many of your emails are from people you actually talk to? How many of them are newsletters from businesses and brands you follow (and even some you don’t)?
We’re guessing the answer to that second question is – a lot.
With 3.8 billion active users, it’s no wonder that businesses are using email to reach their customers. In fact, in 2020 alone, there were 306.4 billion emails sent and received per day worldwide, making email marketing one of the most effective ways to reach people.
With a well-crafted strategy, businesses can effectively communicate their brand, products, and services directly to potential customers’ inboxes. Email marketing allows for personalized and highly segmented campaigns, ensuring relevant content reaches the right individuals at the right time. It fosters customer loyalty and trust through regular communication and builds long-term relationships.
In a digital age where inbox access is constant, an effective email marketing strategy becomes an indispensable tool for business growth and success.
According to HubSpot, email generates $38 for every dollar spent on average, which is a massive 3,800% return on investment. In other words, if you aren’t using email for your business, you’re doing it wrong.
With all the possibilities of email marketing – newsletters, automated sequences, and growing your email list – approaching email marketing the right way can seem overwhelming.
