Email marketing and automation

According to Hubspot, marketers who use segmented email campaigns note as much as a 760% increase in revenue. Email marketing and automation works to engage your audience, checking in with them at regular touchpoints to support the finalisation of sales.
More sophisticated and powerful than ever before, email marketing offers marketers a high return on investments. When managed successfully, you will generate more leads, finalise more sales and increase brand visibility and customer recognition.


Email marketing is a fast, cheap and highly profitable marketing channel that supports you in building relationships with your customers and growing your brand. It is the act of sending a commercial message, typically to a group of people using email. These emails may be advertisements, business updates or your latest blog post, and may be used within a thorough content marketing strategy.

Alongside this, it is also important to set up email funnels which portray the journey you want your audience to take. As part of this, you may consider setting up email automation. Email automation is the ability to send time or action triggered emails to subscribers with relevant information.

The main purpose of email marketing is to build loyalty, trust and brand awareness while increasing leads and sales. It encourages your subscribers to revisit your website and gain insights from your content regularly. The Digital Marketing Association suggest that 66% of customers purchase as a result of an email marketing message.

Since the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation, it’s more imperative than ever to ensure that your email strategies are completely compliant. It’s vital that your emails are only sent to contacts that have opted in to receiving your marketing. Get it wrong and you could find your business looking at a hefty fine.
