Email marketing is one of the oldest digital marketing strategies still in use today; however, it's come a long way from its inception. Throughout the years, best practice has frequently changed, creating many myths that many falsely believe to be true. Some of these myths could harm the effectiveness of your campaign, so our digital marketing experts are here to help squash these myths once and for all.
The common myths around email marketing need to be squished for companies to see its effectiveness. In today's blog, we are looking at 3 common email marketing myths.
No data shows that the word free triggers most emails into spam. So, this is categorically not true. While keywords impact how a server perceives your email, it's not as heavy-handed as the rumours have suggested, and you will not get rejected just because the word "free" is pervasive in your email.
A study conducted by Adobe found that Millennials check and use their emails more than any other age group. If your target audience is within the Millennial generation, introducing email marketing to your digital campaigns could provide a significant boon to your outreach. Especially when integrated with retargeting features on your website, email marketing could help your business turn cart abandonment into new marketing opportunities.
Often people wrongly focus on open rates in a marketing campaign. However, we would argue that this rate is not the primary focus. Instead, you need multiple metrics to get the complete picture. How many people opened the email is important, but how many people engaged with the email and completed the call to action is equally important. With both metrics, you can identify a success rate, which can help you optimise your future marketing.
According to a study from Adobe, 61% of customers prefer email marketing when contacted by brands. This demonstrates that whilst email marketing is one of the other forms of digital marketing, it is still a useful and potent tool in a company's repertoire.
