Does your company use email marketing? Although 87% of B2B companies report that they use email marketing, only 59% actually did so in a real-world study. If you’re one of those companies missing out on the high ROI of email marketing, let’s talk about making email marketing work for you.
Surprising research found that, out of 1,000 B2B companies being studied, 41% did not send even one email in the 90-day research period. Most of the B2B companies in the study sent an email out once every three to four weeks. That’s not optimal!
Have you heard — or maybe said — “We can’t do email marketing. My customers already say they get too many!”
No doubt it seems that way sometimes. When it comes to email effectiveness, it’s all about the “driver,” not the “vehicle.”
If you’ve struggled with low open rates, few click-throughs to your site, and negligible conversion rates from your email campaigns, don’t give up. Try a new approach!
We all dislike emails that waste our time. However, when done well, email marketing is now more effective than ever!
Take a look at the data behind this claim:
40% of B2B marketers say that email is their most powerful channel.
E-newsletters rank as the No. 2 content type for B2B (87%).
And definitely make sure your emails are optimized for mobile, as over 50% of emails are opened on a mobile device.
Email isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. With the right approach, emails will support your company’s lead nurturing, customer acquisition, and customer retention goals!
