I have a question for you.
When you open your email and see messages from half a dozen companies trying to sell you something, do you open and read each one or toss them to the iconic trash can without giving the subject line a backward glance?
I start most mornings with an inbox purge, dumping at least a dozen pitches for cruise vacations, credit card offers, and offers to buy my home from property investors interested. (It’s not for sale, by the way.)
You can probably relate.
And that is why most email marketing campaigns fail miserably—they are overused and mistreated, which gets them mostly ignored. Businesses send out email blasts to anyone and everyone they can because they’re a cheap way of trying to connect with prospects. The ads are not well-targeted and rarely catch more than an accidental click. What’s worse— There’s so much of this nonsense out there that even well-thought-out and well-targeted email campaigns get overlooked amidst the deluge of spam and junk offers.
