|Why use Email Marketing & Constant Contact
One would think that with new media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and blogs that email marketing is a thing of the past but this is far from true. Email marketing is a more intimate avenue because it allows you to target specific audiences. This gives your company the ability to pick and choose who will receive emails which makes it easier to build relationships with clients, while also building loyalty and trust.
Email marketing is data driven and can give you vital information to track your efforts. With every email campaign sent, data is automatically generated that can be used to refine your approach and messages.
Most importantly, email marketing can drive direct sales or inquires to your business. By using obvious links in your emails, you can send people to your website, downloads, and promotions. Remember, the purpose of an email is to drive traffic to a landing page, product page or website in order to gain clients.
If your company, like most is limited in time and/or budget, then we highly recommend using an email marketing service like Constant Contact. Learn more about Email Marketing & Constant Contact.
