  • Email must clearly identify the sender
  • The subject line must authentically represent the content of the email message
  • The sender's full name and physical address must be included in the email message
  • The recipient must be able to unsubscribe right on the email or via a link from the email.
  • Our business depends on the success and integrity of our email marketing.

Conclusion

 

Email Marketing is here to stay. It is an important aspect of the business owner's Direct Online Distribution and eMarketing Strategy. Email and eMarketing in general can be used both as a direct response vehicle (short-term, results-oriented) and as a branding tool (long-term and strategic goals).

 

Email marketing allows business owners to engage the customer in a strong, personalized and mutually beneficial interactive relationship at a fraction of the cost of traditional marketing.  And most importantly, email marketing allows the business owners to "own the customer" in this new online distribution and marketing environment.

 

There has never been a better time to embrace email marketing as part of your Direct Online Distribution and Marketing Strategy. You have already realized that the Web can be either your best ally or your worst enemy. Consider retaining an experienced consultancy to help you navigate the often-confusing Internet "Do's" and "Don't" and provide you with the "best practices" tools needed to utilize email marketing to its fullest potential.
