Effective email marketing
Emailing customers and prospective customers has long been an extremely effective Digital Marketing medium. Below are some reasons why we would recommend email marketing to our clients:
- Potential Customers - 95% of online users have an active email account, with 91% checking their email at least once daily. With over 3 billion email accounts there is huge potential to reach potential customers. (Source: Exact Target)
- Cost - The cost of designing an email is relatively small. To email to your own customer database to communicate about up-selling, cross-selling and re-ordering existing products or services is likely to ensure a decent ROI.
- Delivery - In comparison to Social Media posts, which are viewable on average for a time-period of 2 hours, an email message will sit in a recipients inbox until it is read.
- Personalisation - you can personalise an email, not only by including a "Dear John", but by making it relevant to the customer based on customer groups and/or personas, or indeed on an individual level. Personalised emails typically have a much greater success rate.
- Measurement - We can track the total emails sent, opened, read and which links they clicked on. Each visit to the website can also be tracked to ascertain if they made an actual enquiry or purchase. These measurements can be used to compare the success of different email campaigns and holistically, against other Digital Marketing and Online Advertising media.
