Digital marketing has evolved when social media came into the picture, so a question has risen: “is email marketing still important?”
Though many platforms are existing for digital marketing, the answer is yes. Yes, email marketing or email campaigns are still important. Here are the reasons why:
PEOPLE ENGAGE IN EMAILS
A person cannot create a social media account without an email, so yes, emails are still a thing today. Also, applications for email are available on smartphones, thus notifying them to read their email. When it comes to business too, emails are being used to transfer information. Business man talk via mail! So there are a lot of engagements in emails.
KEEPS YOU IN CONTACT
An email campaign keeps you in contact with your audience. Whether they be new market or previous customers. Email marketing allows you to keep your customers informed and updated about your products or services.
REACH THE MARKET REAL TIME
Once you sent out your email campaign, everyone in the list will receive it real time. You advertised directly to a target market. Unlike social media, not everyone you want to advertise to will see it. But do not get us wrong, social media marketing is also an efficient strategy. It’s just that email marketing allows targeted messaging to the target market.
INCREASE BRAND AWARENESS
Social media is not the only way to increase your brand awareness. Email campaign is also a way, just think of it, having a customer’s email address mean they showed interest in your business. That is why they subscribed and left their email address so you can send them updates about your products or services.
PERSONAL AND CUSTOMIZABLE
An email is a personal message, comparing it to an ad that is on Facebook. Also you can create the right message for the right audience. You can address your audience as a whole but still manage to make it sound personal. Use an approach in the correct fashion, give seasonal offers or give a discount to a customer who is celebrating a birthday.

The first question is ‘why do you need to outsource?’ followed by ‘when do you need to outsource?’ By answering those questions, you will have the answer if outsourcing is necessary for your business.
Here are a few points to consider about the raised questions:
You should focus on your business.
As a business owner, you will focus on your business strategy and increasing sales. So what happens if you will be needing to do administrative work? Or maintain all your social accounts? Or if you want to redesign your website, will you hire a new bunch of IT people? That will take time. So, instead of focusing on how to increase your profit and work on your business strategy, you are bombarded with operational tasks.
That is when outsourcing comes in, if you outsource, you do not need to spend a lot of time in finding the people who will handle your social media accounts or design your website. You do not need to buy new equipment or make space in your office for newly hired people. Because with outsourcing, you get to have your own team immediately and you get to discuss things with them online. No need to worry about benefits and other expenses about hiring new people.
Not everybody in your company can do everything.
If you have a work that your employees are not skilled in, what do you do? Hire new people again? Think about the expenses. Plus, you are not yet sure if they can actually pull off what you want to happen. It will take time to train them about your business, so if you want to get something done immediately, I guess outsourcing is the best answer for you.
Why? Because if you do outsourcing, you are sure that the people you are getting are good at what they do. You can see reviews, testimonials or portfolios on their websites. And they have been doing that for years. So, no, you do not need to hire people that will eat up your time to get something done. Get a good company that has the best teams to do it for you.
