It’s 2022 and the Internet have fundamentally changed the way businesses and customers interact. Status updates, likes, stories, tweets are a few of the many ways a marketer communicates with their customers or prospective customers.
This, however, does not make our affinity towards email any less! Email is still a marketer’s best friend.
Not just marketers, consumers don’t mind receiving emails too. A report indicates that 81% of people who shop from online stores are more likely to continue if they receive regular promotional emails.
Saying people love emails would be an understatement!
HITTING THE SWEET SPOT!
Since email is the one channel that is constantly on the rise and the one customers embrace, marketers need to develop content strategies to make sure they make the most of it, without driving customers away.
According to Hubspot, 78% of consumers have unsubscribed from emails because a brand was sending too many. Finding out just the right amount and sending segmented and personalized emails and newsletters are the key to unlock the true power of email.
MARKETING AUTOMATION TO THE RESCUE!
