Popular email-based marketing communications include newsletters, promotional campaigns and event showcases.

Besides, this, email marketing tips work great because:

  1. Email Helps You with Distribution: This is a great opportunity! The moment a new subscriber signs up to your list, you have direct access to that person’s inbox. That’s simply not the case with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any other social media platform
  2. Send Marketing Messages Via Email: People usually go on social media to connect with their friends, not to watch ads. In fact, 45% of consumers complain that social media ads are annoying. Also, these consumers would like to get marketing messages, however, in their inboxes. For example, according to one study, 86% of consumers prefer getting email marketing messages compared to Facebook ads, TV commercials and display ads
  3. Email Gives Good Conversion: Since email has a better reach than social messaging, it also increases sales. In fact, emails convert 40 times more leads into customers than Facebook or Twitter

STEP 2: Get an email marketing software. Use this software to send emails to your subscribers in the list

STEP 3: Build your own email list. Look for more subscribers from your phone book, reports, webinars, etc., and create a list of your own

STEP 4: Start up an autoresponder. Set up the autoresponder to automatically send content to new subscribers

Thereafter, feature the content upgrade in your blog post. This upgrade can be added at the top or bottom of the page or in both the places
