Email is the most accepted tactic that is often dismissed as being too rudimentary for today’s focus on real-time information. Email marketing remains as the most neccesary element in the marketing strategies of businesses and organizations of all sizes.

In a study conducted in the UK, 89% of the respondents surveyed said that email was “important” or “very important” for their businesses. The report, “National client email report 2013” by Direct Marketing Association (DMA) UK sponsored by Alchemy worx says that Email marketing had become the cornerstone for many marketing programmes in 2012 compared to 2011.

The associated value of email marketing to the economy is clear, given the UK’s National Office of Statistics estimated website sales at £129.1 billion in 2011 and total ecommerce sales at £482.9 billion.

Interesting facts from the report

Marketers are using email for an increasing range of objectives beyond straight forward revenue generation, including retention, engagement, acquisition and brand awareness. Click and conversion rates are the factors that marketers rate most often as important to achieving business goals.

B2C marketers put at least as much or more emphasis on engagement and retention than their B2B counterparts. However, B2C organizations place less-than-average emphasis on building brand awareness.
