Email remains one of the most efficient means of communication when reaching potential customers. Drafting and distributing mass emails is relatively easy; getting potential customers to open those emails is not.
With the explosion of social media and mobile apps in recent years, email can seem almost quaint. But it’s still one of the most effective digital marketing channels. In fact, 91% of U.S. consumers use email every day, and a recent analysis by the consulting firm McKinsey & Company found that email generates 40 times the number of new customers as Facebook and Twitter combined.
