Is Email Marketing Still an Effective Marketing Tool?

Because of the rise of social media, some business owners focus only on their social media pages and put email marketing to the side since it’s becoming less valuable. Is email marketing dead? 

Those who believe email marketing is ineffective today might be doing it wrong. Forget the myths because email marketing is still very much alive and popping! In fact, it is still the most powerful tool to take your business to the next level. The key to a successful campaign is attracting customers and clients to do business with you. The best way to accomplish this is by sharing relevant and valuable content.

So, again, “Does email marketing work in 2023?” The answer is YES when you do it properly. But don’t just take my word for it; here are some stats to prove that email marketing remains to be the King of ROI and still offers enormous potential for your business:

  • For every $1 you spend on email marketing, you can expect an average return of $40 (Omnisend).
  • In a survey about marketing emails, 59% of respondents said that emails directly affect their decisions to make a purchase (SaleCycle).
  • When it comes to acquiring new customers, email is over 40 times more effective than social media, especially when they are targeted and personalized (McKinsey).
  • Email marketing conversion rates are three times that of social media marketing (eMarketer).
  • 99% of people check emails at least once and up to 20 times daily (OptinMonster). 
  • Email marketing is ranked among the top 3 most effective marketing channels by 79% of marketers. (Hubspot)

How do you make email marketing work? Here are some of my suggestions:

  1. Make sure your customer lists are segmented. 
  2. Personalize your messages and create a strong email subject line.
  3. Make your marketing emails mobile-friendly since most users check emails on their mobile phones.
  4. Create valuable and compelling content.
  5. Include a clear call-to-action
  6. Only send a few emails to your subscribers.

In conclusion, email marketing has been around for a long time, and it’s not going anywhere. It will do wonders for your business and drive significant results if your email is timely, engaging, and relevant.
