The Advantages to Email Newsletter Marketing

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

In order for a business to thrive, marketing is an essential tool. How a business goes about marketing is based on the product or service they are selling, their target group and what has worked best in the past. With the internet, many companies have succeeded at email marketing. You may think that this form of promotion is outdated; after all, many businesses have shifted their focus to using social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook to attract customers.

It works for a variety of reasons, including that it allows businesses to target specific people, it drives direct sales and it builds a relationship between the company and the individual. In the majority of cases, it’s the person that signs up to receive emails, so already the company is sending their marketing tools to those that have a general interest in the product or service. With regular emails, the people can choose when they want to take advantage of the product. And, there are options to customize the emails with the customer’s name for a more personalized approach.

Another advantage to email marketing is that it allows opportunities for immediate action. Click on a link and customers can instantly start shopping. Download the latest flyer or hit the envelope icon to send a message to a support person. All of these tools and more are available through email marketing. In fact, emails work very similar to websites, with bright colors, bolded fonts and enticing places to click. By using this type of email newsletter marketing, companies can directly link their target group to their website.

Some companies choose to partner with smaller companies to promote awareness about social issues, sell related products and send out important information. With this approach, companies are able to expand on their ideas, encourage social change and ultimately build trust within their target group.

With all the advantages to email newsletter marketing, it’s no surprise that many companies start here in their efforts to promote their product or service. With an email marketing company by your side, you can send out engaging emails, track how many of the newsletters are being opened and read and maximize your marketing tools. With analysis reports and strategic planning, a marketing company can ensure that your business succeeds and gains all the benefits of email marketing.

We’ve already signed up for a trial account and LOVE it so far! There are a few glitches here and there, but that’s to be expected with a Beta version.

What’s even better about the new system, is that it also works with Google Docs. Now remote collaboration is even easier and documents can be shared and updated effortlessly. Thanks, Google!
