Let’s look into using email marketing for customer retention and lead generation.
This is only a tip of many approach to email marketing.
When implementing email marketing it’s mandatory (if you are goal orient) to create several email list/ group. This can be based on recipient industry type, job functions, interest, age, etc.
The whole idea is to publish campaigns that are relevant to the email recipients. By so doing your mails are not acknowledged as spam and the receivers are more comfortable with what you are sending out to them since it suit their demand or interest.
