What is the importance of email marketing?

The method of using commercial emails to reach out to consumers, who are often target-specific, to communicate information, achieve higher sales, and improve customer loyalty is known as email marketing. It has, today, become the most revered and popular form of online marketing strategy in the world.


A trusted technology: The technology of email is an excellent medium as it provides the user with a feeling of intimacy and privacy. It also has a feel of formal importance which social media platforms do not offer. The inbox of many users is a customized space for communication, and it hosts messages only from one’s favorite or liked brands. If a brand can establish direct contact with a user (or consumer), it is more impressionable and impactful than a social media post that is scrolled over.

Emails tend to be more accessible and engaging to the user. It is also the favored platform for an overwhelming majority of communications on business transactions. Thus, email channels are more useful in communications during a major crisis or natural disaster. Emails were the preferred choice for hundreds of brands globally to update consumers on the COVID-19 pandemic.


A greater market reach: About three-fifths of consumers stated that their decisions to buy products were influenced by emails. As for marketers and marketing agencies, more than 60 per cent have reported that email marketing is the primary source of ROI (Return on Investment). Depending on the industry, the ROI can average as high as 20 to 30 times the original investment. Such lucrative promises have made this form of direct marketing central to marketing policies, even in the world of social media.

The scalability of email marketing or the capability to deliver to a broad recipient base on a large scale played a crucial role in this. Emails are unique in playing a relevant role in every stage of buying. Be it through transactional emails or direct emails, they engage from prospection and conversion to customer retention.
