Email Marketing is alive and well and will be for a very long time. Don’t listen to the naysayers who declare that email marketing is “dead”. There are over 205 billion email messages sent per day. That means 2.4 emails are sent every second and up to 74 trillion emails are sent yearly. This number is expected to rise at an annual rate of 3% over the next 3 years.
On average, subscribers receive 416 advertising emails per month. For every $1 spent on email marketing, the average return is $44 (Source: campaignmonitor.com).

6 advantages to Email Marketing:
1) Email Marketing provides the ability to distribute information to a wide range of specific, potential customers at a relatively low cost. Compared to other media investments, email is less expensive per contact. The Direct Marketing Association (DMA) has found that email marketing has a return on investment of 4,300 percent.
2) With the right email campaign, an exact return on investment can be tracked and has proven to be high when done properly. Email marketing is often reported as second only to search engine marketing (SEO) as the most effective online marketing tactic.
3) The delivery time for an email message is short (i.e., seconds or minutes) as compared to a mailed advertisement such as a postcard, magazine or flyer (i.e., one or more days).
4) An advertiser is able to “push” the message to its audience, as opposed to website-based advertising, which relies on a customer to visit that website.
5) Email messages are easy to track. An advertiser can track users via autoresponders, web bugs, bounce messages, unsubscribe requests, read receipts, click-throughs, etc. These mechanisms can be used to measure open rates, positive or negative responses, and to correlate sales with marketing.
6) Tracking and response metrics enables you to tune your email by a process of testing different creatives, subject lines and call to actions.
