Direct mail marketing is still employed on a large scale, by retailers, politicians and non profits. In fact direct mail marketing probably accounts for the bulk of actual mail that is delivered today. But as people move away from paper and onto the internet, Email Marketing is emerging as the wave of the future. The difference between a good email advertising campaign and spam is that ads should be targeted to those most likely to be potential customers. When this is done, email recipients respond very differently than when they are deluged with emails for products or services they do not want.
Running successful email ad campaigns requires Email Marketing Software that can manage a large volume of mail and keep track of the statistics that tell you whether your campaign is reaching its target customer base and whether it is succeeding in producing the sales that are your ultimate goal. Such software is commercially available from vendors who specialize in the design of email applications for business use.
What you send out to your customers; how you present your information, is also important, so you will need to craft your newsletters carefully. It’s best to obtain Newsletter templates that are well designed and flexible enough in their format to accommodate your needs. Templates are available from many locations. Your word processing software probably has at least one. But the best choice is to get templates that were designed with email advertising in mind, in order to maximize their effectiveness.
