Here are some more thoughts on the topic of Email marketing …. see also Zero Cost Marketing with Email Marketing
What are the advantages of email marketing?
Can email direct to someone’s in-tray and will attract attention if headline is compelling
Can send to named people who have opted in to receive information
Can add links to more information such as websites etc.
Can be from named people – people do business with people
Can be a step towards building relationships
Can be part of the relationship between people
Can be perceived as spam by both people and email systems – so make it useful and send only to people that have opted-in to receive information .. no junk or spam mail please!
Often not compelling – but can be if well written
Can get you blacklisted – unless you take precautions to be seen as a legitimate email and don't use a bulksender
Email is a great marketing channel and often under-used; but it does need care and attention if it is to work.
