Behind this simple and obvious sounding term lies a powerful marketing force that generates leads and business for millions of businesses across the globe. But before we dash off to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, let’s first talk a bit about what email marketing is and what it isn’t. Email marketing is the direct marketing of a commercial message to a group of persons within a target market using electronic messages, aka email. In fact, any email you send to a potential or existing customer that contains a commercial message can be termed as email marketing. However, that’s where the simplicity ends. Effective email marketing is the deliberate, methodic and measurable sending of marketing emails with the specific goal of eliciting a very predictable and quantifiable outcome from those messages. So email marketing is about sending commercial messages to potential customers but it isn’t sending out messages to as many people as you can with the hope that someone will bite. In fact there’s a name for that, it’s called spamming. So the difference between spam and effective email marketing is the experience, skills and professional ethics of the digital marketing firm. Effective email marketing involves developing a compelling narrative to share, adding tracking and action-oriented elements to the emails, targeting the emails to the groups that would find that message most relevant and actionable and finally constantly refining and iterating the email message, design, format and target group using A/B testing and other multivariate testing methods to get that right fit. Others call it marketing, we call it art.
