Many small business owners still don’t believe in email marketing. They focus on blogging or social media marketing, without trying to set up an e-mail list. However, it is really important to have a list of clients and potential ones.
Part of your goal of blogging and social media marketing should be to set up an e-mail marketing list for the following reasons:
1. Email Marketing is Easy.
Sending out e-mails is simple and easy to do. It won’t take a lot of time to write e-mails for your customers and potential customers so you won’t have to hire any new employees to manage your e-mail marketing campaign.
2. Email Marketing is Effective.
Most people check their e-mail several times a day. Not only do they check it, they read important e-mails and follow-through with things that are important to them. Make sure that you keep your customers informed of any sales and specials and they will be sure to shop during those times.
3. More Than Ever People Use their Email on Mobile Devices.
With the growing number of smart phones and tablets, people now have access to their e-mails no matter where they go. This means you can send business e-mails out when you are running errands and people will receive them when they are out and about.
Still not using e-mail marketing?
It is time to get started. It is not difficult to set up. You will probably even be able to use your smart phone to send out messages when you are on the go! Many people worry that they will have to hire more employees but with e-mail marketing, you shouldn’t need more help. It does not take much time to write a few e-mails to keep your clients informed about your company. It is also very effective. If you start offering some coupons, you will see it right away.
