What is Email Marketing?

Email marketing is the act of sending commercial messages to a current and potential target audience.

We all receive multiple emails on a daily basis. Good email marketing means that your clients and potential clients open and engage with your communication, often even looking forward to receiving emails from you. The challenge is how you cut through the clutter to interact with your clients. Email marketing can also help you to create strong brand loyalty.
