Some people think email marketing is a dying trend, however, in the U.S. alone, more than 90% of people over the age of 15 use email.
This tells us that if you want to be seen and heard, email is the way to go and it’s actually ABOVE social media.
There’s so much competition in social media that email is where the traffic actually is. Only 1-2% of your audience is actually seeing your post on social media and with email, your open rates are much higher than that, which equals more eyes on your content.
You’ll also get a better bang for your buck with email, because statistics show, for every dollar you spend on email marketing, you can expect an average return of $42.
Bottom line: There’s so much opportunity with email.
Email is all about driving value, building relationships, building trust, and moving your ideal customer down the value-journey. It must be a purpose-driven process, not about spamming people, sending emails just to send them, or sending too many.
The best way to get people to subscribe to you is to create an irresistible freebie (or lead magnet) that addresses their most common objections and helps solve a problem that they have, leading them to purchase the product or solution you offer.
