We’ve come up with our list of reasons why Email Excels:
- Cost Effective – Against more traditional marketing tactics such as direct mail or print adverts email is very cost effective and overall email provides a really good ROI
- Highly targeted – Providing you’ve got good data, you can be very specific as to who your message is sent to and how you talk to them
- Easy to access the ROI – Sophisticated email software tracks; open rates, click through rates, leads and online sales
- Permission based – People can opt out and opt in to receive your communications. You only target the people that count and with preference centres you can allow your recipients to pick what content they receive and how often
- Split Testing – You can work out the best email title or creative design of your email by split testing your campaign before sending out the main batch
- The New Inbox – Email isn’t just on your PC accessed at your desk anymore. Smart phones enable us to pick up our emails anytime and anywhere.

Email is a highly effective method for lead nurturing so we recommend that your website enquiry forms or sign up forms utilise triggered campaigns.
