How Email marketing and its contribution to the growth of the business

It was back in 1978 when a business sent out its first marketing email to its client. This marketing email generated up to $13 million worth of sales and became the leading and most influential marketing practice. In its early days, it was not a favourable or most opted marketing approach; however, with time passing, it gained popularity once the businesses realized its potential and impact (Statista, 2023). 

Sharing personal information and maintaining a consistent relationship with the customers back then was a challenge. Over the evolution of technology and digitization, the resistance has become low, with customers sharing their email information to stay updated with updates and promotions of their favourite brands. It is not easy to retrieve a customer’s personal information; however, if a business opts for the suitable medium and technique, then any business owner successfully builds a healthy customer database and maintains those customer relationships more effectively.

Designing an effective email strategy 


To design a well-constructed email strategy, the marketer must consider the following elements to make it more impactful:

  1. Exploring and analyzing your target audience– How a reader can relate and connect with the content shared in an email makes an email effective. The more the relevancy of the email, the higher the chances for the reader to get engaged. 
  2. Designing a List of interested subscribers – To send newsletters and emails, the marketer requires a list of individuals who have consented to share their personal information with the brand. One way to extract the customers’ email addresses is through the website by signing up for the newsletters. Many brands offer a lucrative 10% discount if the visitor on the website signs up for the newsletter.
  3. Defining the buyer persona- It is essential to segregate the list of subscribers based on their behaviour, characteristics, interests, buying patterns, demographics, pain points or their challenges. This way, the content shared over email is more personalized and appropriate for the right consumer. 
  4. Eye-catching and attention-seeking content- The content in the email must be clear, crisp, and directly targeted toward that reader. The content must have unique and engaging content with attractive attributes such as title, images, message, and call to action.
  5. Mobile-friendly content- You know how we are always on our phones and tablets nowadays, right? Well, that is why websites and pages need to be mobile-friendly. It is just way more convenient that way! Plus, with cloud computing, everything is super accessible. Hence, the emails must be rightly optimized for smartphones and portable gadgets so that the previewed content is original. 
  6. Exploring Campaign Types- Based on the nature of the business, a marketer can use the most suitable campaign type for email marketing. It is not a leisurely sail to understand the most effective one, but one can always experiment and analyze a particular campaign and see how favourable the results are. If not, the marketer can decide whether to stick to weekly email campaigns, monthly newsletters or share updates via email about the latest advancements and promotions. This is more like a hit-and-trial approach, but the marketer must proceed with the most rewarding email marketing campaign.
