Sending emails for customer communication and cross-promoting has proven to be one of the most effective methods of marketing. According to a study done by Mckinsey & Company, Email Marketing is up to 40 times more effective than social media. The same study showed that the purchasing rate is 3 times faster, too.
Based on the data, internet users check their email at least once a day. When it comes to preference, email is the most preferred method of receiving information from companies they currently do business with. Studies also show that customers are willing to continue doing business with those companies they hear from, which confirms that customer loyalty is caused by actively reinforcing the brand and its services.
