‘The world of email marketing is outdated.’
‘You can’t live without email marketing in the roaring twenties.’
‘Newsletters? Let’s flock to social media instead.’
I bet you hear lots of these every day, contemplating whether you should devote your time and resources to newsletters these days. But the truth is - you’re free to choose whatever works for your business best and delivers stable ROI.
However, it’d be blatantly false to cast away newsletters as an unviable medium.
Email marketing is a powerful tool to connect with your customers and drive more sales. And most importantly, newsletters add a personal touch to your marketing and reach your audience directly in their inbox.
Let’s add some more rationale to the potential of newsletters at this time and age:
