It's no secret that I'm a big fan of email marketing. There is so much that you can do with emails that you simply cannot do with other forms of marketing or advertising. It is the perfect way to deliver the right message, to the right people, at the right time. There is no better way to communicate with your existing customers or to nurture your prospects through your sales funnel.
Unlike other marketing channels, email marketing allows you to keep in touch with your customers on a consistent basis. A simple "Thank you for subscribing", a cheery "Welcome on Board", or a sincere "Happy Birthday" email can be an easy way to let your customers know you value them.

Costs associated with email marketing are very low and you can put emails on autopilot, yet stay personalized with your subscribers.
