importance of email marketing
There are many reasons you should make email marketing one of your top priorities, but here are the top 3:
Email is the #1 communication channel
Did you know that at least 99% of consumers check their email on a daily basis? That can’t be said of any other communication channel.
You own your list
On any social media platform, your account (along with all your fans and posts) could be suspended or deleted at any time, for any reason, without notice. However, you own your email list. No one can take those leads away from you.
Email just converts better
People who buy products marketed through email spend 138% more than those who do not receive email offers. In fact, email marketing has an ROI (returns on investment) of 4400%. That’s huge! And if you are wondering if social media converts even better, think again: the average order value of an email is at least three times higher than that of social media.
Email is simply the best way to make sales online.
