Email marketing is one of the most overlooked, but effective forms of marketing still today. Great content is marketing information your customers need. The Marketing Sherpa is a research firm that tracks the effectiveness of social media. The company’s blog from February 2011 explains that the return on investment is 256 percent, meaning that for every $1 spent on email marketing, $256 in sales comes back. Add personalized video to that, and it doubles the number of people who open the email, according to Forbes business magazine.
Email marketing campaigns are essential elements of any marketing strategy. They communicate and build relationships with prospects, gather important data, and help boost marketing ROI. As important as these campaigns are for marketers, many miss the mark and continue to fall short on the campaign’s return.
To build, execute, and maintain effective email marketing campaigns, you must pay close attention to your audience, the message, and avoid the common trap of simply blasting out self-promotional messages. This only leads to recipients hitting the delete button more than opening your message.
