Advantages of email marketing
There are so many benefits to using email to engage with your customers. Only people who have some interest will sign up to receive your emails so you are not wasting time on people who will never be your customers. You can work out the interests of different customers and use segmentation to get the content they want most to their inboxes. Emails are easily shared with your recipient’s contacts meaning potential new customers for you. Email marketing is less harsh than telephone marketing as the customer can decide if and when to read your communication. It is also affordable and environmentally friendly as nothing is printed.
