Why Email Marketing is Still in Vogue
I’ve been developing and implementing email marketing strategies and campaigns for clients since 1995. Everything from targeted campaigns to triggered email, life cycle, click-stream and transactional emails, I’ve seen it all. From lists as small as 100 to well over 1,000,000 in English, Japanese and a few other languages.
And you know what, email marketing is still just as effective today as it was in 1995, 2000, or 2008. When someone "subscribes", asks to hear from you, gives you their permission to talk to them, well it doesn’t get much better than that. However, with that permission comes an obligation and responsibility to provide those subscribers with timely, relevant content, which isn’t always your latest sale item or contest.
