Why Email Should be a Key Part of Your Marketing Toolbox

In one of my 2017 blog posts I talked about how email continues to deliver one of the highest returns on investment of any marketing medium. ( See “How I Beat the Industry Averages on Email Marketing Campaigns”). I think many business owners tend to think of email as a practical communication tool for day-to-day business operations. And that it is. But used creatively and strategically, emailing can be so much more than that!

The value of email in marketing has not diminished. So I encourage readers to rethink how you’re using email and ask yourself: Are you making the most of email technology to stay connected with prospects and customers? Are you using email’s full marketing and sales capabilities?

Email’s low cost, high visibility features make it an essential tool for any marketing strategy. Despite the growing popularity in messaging apps, emails are still heavily relied upon by users from every age segment… yes… even millennials.

In a recent article for SalesPOP!, I discuss why salespeople who use email sell more. (See “Salespeople Who Email Sell More … Yup, Seriously”). Used as part of a follow-up system, emailing is a highly efficient way for salespeople to stay top of mind with prospects and customers. And modern day emailing software allows salespeople to track engagement rates with their emails so they can better identify hot prospects and customer interests.

In the SalesPOP! article I share 5 tips for effective emailing. I’ve listed them below, but I encourage readers to click the link to the full article to learn more.

5 Tips for High-Response Emailing:
  1. Use email marketing software
  2. Write an attention-grabbing subject line
  3. Keep your emails brief
  4. Include enticing offers
  5. Include a call to action

If you aren’t using email as part of your marketing strategy, now’s the time to get started. You can be sure that if you’re not communicating regularly with prospects and customers, your competitors will be.

  • Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive. Was thinking about starting using analytics. Do you recommend it?
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac
