Email marketing, especially a newsletter, when done right can bring significant interest and business to any size company.
There are quite a few marketing channels available to marketers, from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the list goes on…
However, email consistently leads the way as being the most preferable marketing method by both marketers and customers.
Contrary to popular belief, customers don’t really hate email! They just hate getting too much of it.
Especially when it’s irrelevant content. An average person receives 121 emails a day. The human race as a whole gets 193.3 billion emails every single day!!
Out of these, the majority of email traffic comes from the business world, which accounts for over 108 billion emails sent and received in a day.
Yet, email marketing has one of the greatest ROI’s – $44 for every $1 spent! compared to all the other marketing channels.
Newsletters are a great way to personalize!
As marketers, our job is to put out content that is relevant to the consumer and at the same time, do it in a manner that doesn’t take up too much of our time.
So what can a business do to make sure they are putting out the right content that not only gets a response but also urges the receiver to perform the intended action?
Studies show that marketers who are using personalization to make their emails more relevant are getting a 2.5x higher click-through rates, and are generating 6x more sales from their campaigns. Cool right?
GetResponse for Newsletters?
This personalization of newsletters, however, comes at a cost. Creating personalized newsletters take up a lot of time and effort, an asset that’s hardly available to marketers.
Technology has done its part in making email marketing easier and effective, by producing a number of marketing solutions for every category of business. The best marketing tool will definitely depend on:
1) Your budget
2) Size of your list
3) Type of industry you are in and much more!
One such email marketing tool that is very popular amongst businesses of all shapes and sizes is GetResponse.
Using email marketing services like GetResponse can provide you the tools to make a newsletter, but it still requires a lot of time and work on your part to craft that perfect newsletter that makes your time spent ‘worth it’.
