Why is promotional emailing essential?
Advantages of promotional emailing
Promotional emailing has many advantages for your business. First of all, it lets you reach your customers directly, without going through intermediaries. By sending a promotional email, you can highlight special offers, new products or exclusive discounts, straight to your customers' inboxes. This keeps you in regular contact with your customers and strengthens the customer-brand relationship.
What's more, promotional emailing offers great flexibility in terms of targeting. You can segment your contact list according to specific criteria such as age, gender, purchasing preferences and so on. This allows you to personalize your messages and send relevant offers to each segment of your audience. Increased email personalization leads to higher conversion rates and greater responsiveness from your customers.
