Eight good reasons to invest in email marketing

Email builds relationships

Users have a higher emotional engagement with email newsletters than with websites or social media. A carefully planned email strategy will nurture and strengthen relationships.

People prefer email

72% of people prefer to receive promotional content through email, whereas only 17% prefer social media.

Email enables you to be creative and distinctive

A well-designed and well-written email can convey your personality directly and effectively. And you choose how and when you wish to communicate with your audience.

Email maintains your profile

Email marketing sends timely messages to interested people, enticing them back to your website, rather than relying on them to find you. Emails have a longer life than do postings on social media.

You own your email list

Growing your email list is an investment which will yield long-term benefits; unlike a social media following, which is vunerable to algorithm and policy changes by platform providers.

Email can be tailored

Using techniques such as dynamic content and segmentation, it is possible to send relevant and timely emails to subscribers to suit their particular interests.

Email has a wide reach

There are 3 times more email accounts than the combined total for Twitter and Facebook. Anybody who is online has an active email address.

Email is very cost-effective

Email marketing provides the highest return on investment of any form of marketing. Email delivers on average a return on investment (ROI) of £21.48 for every £1 spent.

Eight revealing statistics about e-marketing

Email Marketing.    Easy to do.    Hard to do well.

There are many tools available that make it easy to throw together an email and send it out at very little cost, but doing it that way is a missed opportunity and runs the risk of damaging your relationship with your valuable list of subscribers.

Often, a lack of time or limited in-house resources means that optimising emails, link-checking, A/B testing and subsequent analytics do not happen. In a busy working day, when there are so many demands on your time, simply getting the email sent out is an achievement.

However, each time you send an email ‘blast’ without reflecting and learning, you are weakening your relationship with your subscribers. Every email is a great opportunity to develop a good relationship with your audience and to prove once again that what you have to say is relevant to their lives.

Your email list should be considered less as a tool than an asset. For someone to subscribe to your list is a compliment to you; and every time they open one of your emails it is an even bigger compliment. Don’t abuse their faith but develop it. For you, a list of subscribers is a fantastic resource; it is simply foolish to neglect or misuse it.

Envoy can help you grow your email list and make the most of this asset.
