How do Email Marketing benefit freelancers and business owners? With the rise of social media, many marketers think it is now an outdated marketing strategy. But statistics show that it continues to outperform many marketing channels.
Email marketing is one of the most efficient ways of reaching out to potential customers or clients. It is a direct marketing strategy that sends promotional and non-promotional messages through — well, Email! It is a cost-effective method of building brand awareness, as well as fostering loyalty within your customer or client base.
Nowadays, anyone who uses the internet may have an Email account. Whether it is used for personal, professional, business or eCommerce, Emails allow us to receive an almost unlimited number of messages instantly. Indeed, it is one of the fastest, cheapest and easiest methods of communication.
Doing Email Marketing is a great opportunity for your business and at the same time yields a better return on investment. Through this, Email allows you to personalize your marketing and advertising messages. You can also segment your prospects and send specific messages to target their personal and business needs.
But you have to do it right! For example, we don’t want to send messages too often as it might end up landing in the spam folder.
Freelancers and business owners like you will be glad to know that Emails can generate more leads into paying customers or clients by following the right Email Marketing process. You can also track sales and conversions to effectively measure the success of your email marketing efforts.
You can use it to build a relationship with your customers and clients by keeping them updated about your brand. You can even offer them your latest offers and promos to encourage loyalty from them. This increases the impact of your one-on-one communication while reducing manpower cost.
