  1. It is cheaper

Perhaps the most appealing advantage of email marketing is the return on investment. No print costs, no postage fees, no advertising rates. Email marketing is as affordable as marketing gets. Most bulk email service providers will allow you to send emails to about 2000 emails every month for free. You don’t need to break the bank to take advantage of this.

  1. Become number 1 in your customer’s eyes

Each time you send an email, you send your target more information about their industry, your business and your brand. With strategic planning, the right design and the right targeted content, your business will be consistently building its brand. By doing so, you stay with your audience. When a customer needs an insurance policy, you will be ‘top-of-mind’ for them.  Your business will stand a much better chance of providing a quote and trusted recommendations which will lead to a sale.

  1. Better targeting

With email marketing, you have the ability to control exactly who sees your email. By segmenting your contacts based on their characteristics, demographics and location etc your message can be more relevant. Targeting your emails in this way ensures that your audience receives information suited specifically to their needs. For example solicitors do not receive information about fleet insurance which might put them off reading your next email.

  1. It is measurable

With new email marketing software such as Mailchimp, it is easy to measure which emails were delivered and to who, how many were opened and which users engaged with your information. You can also easily see who forwarded your emails and to who. These insights can show you the policies and information that customers want and will help you come up with the right leads for your business.
