Why Do I Need an Email Marketing Service?
Email marketing is a fast and efficient way to communicate with your clients and direct traffic to your business and/or website. Using a regular email client to write your messages and store contacts could work, but as your contacts list grows, the more tedious it will be to manage your subscribers and keep track of the effectiveness of your email campaigns. This is where email marketing services come in. With these sites, you can single handedly create customized newsletter signup forms, manage large lists of contacts, design and create creative messages and track your progress by looking at open and click rates as well as other reader analytics. Many of these services even allow you to split your subscriber lists into segments, so you can test different emails against one another to see which is more effective. All of these tools combined can help grow your business and get closer to your readers.
