With all the popular marketing channels nowadays, like social media, Facebook ads or Google ads, it is easy to overlook email marketing. Despite what people say, email still continues to outperform other channels when it comes to conversions.
Why is email marketing important for your ecommerce business?

It is as simple as sending an email to your customers informing about new promotions or new arrivals. Or more complex, like having automated emails sent to people who abandon their shopping carts.
Aside from the discount codes, promotions, and free shipping offers, email marketing is about building relationships.
This is important because...
- it encourages repeat purchases - Customers won't need to think twice about buying from you again
- it builds loyalty - Referrals through word of mouth is the most effective marketing.
- you are able to provide more value to your customers
- you can do more cost effective marketing - It costs five times more to acquire a new customer
