Email marketing has been around for a long time, and consequently, people have developed a lot of opinions about what works and what doesn’t. However, as the digital marketing landscape has changed, some things about email marketing that used to be true are no longer so. And there are some things that have always been myths, but still persist today.
Here, let’s debunk the six biggest email marketing myths out there.
Some small business owners are intimidated by email marketing. Having to write an individual email is scary enough if you don’t consider yourself a writer. The thought of sending an email out to an entire mailing list can be downright terrifying!
Fortunately, the perfect email is about more than just writing. And even for the written elements, once you’ve figured out the essential components, it’s easy for even those more timid writers among us to excel.
So when it comes to lead generation and conversion, is email marketing really the “A-player’s” strategy? Your total online presence doesn’t end with having a website. It needs to be integrated and complimented by other efforts. This includes content creation, online advertising, local SEO, social media, reputation management and email marketing for lead generation. Email marketing, when done right, can nurture leads and keep current contacts and customers involved with your brand.
