Email marketing has always been a very powerful marketing technique, but unlike other older types of marketing that have dropped off over time, email has continued to skyrocket.
Around 9/10 marketers use email marketing as their primary method for generating leads, and no doubt email is already part of the way you work. But using emails to promote your business and having an effective email marketing strategy are two totally different kettles of marketing fish.
Having a marketing strategy for your email send outs means researching your target audience and tailoring content to suit their needs, style, and intent. Researching and engaging with current industry events on a regular basis is vital, as well as promoting your engagement beforehand and afterwards so that you maximise your efforts.
Finally, email promotions and campaigns are the (very juicy) icing on the cake. Since email is one of the best ways to reach your target clients, you can use this form to reel in repeat business or get your audience involved in engaging campaigns that boost your brand visibility.

Digital Revolution of Email
The digital age has only helped email marketing. The move to mobile seems to have complemented email use, since now most emails are read on iPhones (33%) over Gmail (15%) or on an iPad (12%). Android followed shortly after at 10%, and in 2015, over half of all emails were opened on a mobile and it’s only expected to increase.
Three quarters of Gmail accounts access their account on mobile too, so ensuring that your email render well on mobiles is becoming imperative. Marketing for a mobile audience is therefore a huge influencer towards the effectiveness of your campaigns and something we now take into account with all email marketing.
