Email marketing is a great way to promote products and services, advertise sales and stay connected to your audience. But given the vast variety of email marketing platforms out there, how do you pick the one that’s best for your business’ needs? When making this decision, there are a few important factors to consider.
It can be disappointing, after designing, coding, and sending a bulk email, to see a dismal open rate. According to MailChimp, even the biggest and best companies rarely break a 20% open rate in their email blasts.
We all know the drill because we do it ourselves with email we receive: Most of us trash marketing emails without a second thought. So how do you make your email stand out from the crowd? Check out these four best practices for sending bulk emails.
Email newsletters are an incredibly powerful content marketing tool. Savvy marketers consistently trumpet the benefits of email marketing, touting conversion rates that consistently surpass those of social media and often exceed those of search and pay-per-click.

Chances are high that your inbox is inundated with business, personal and sales offers each day, and so are the inboxes of your prospects and customers.

The rollout of Gmail’s new tabbed inbox format last May led to all kinds of speculation about declining open rates and sales, but it wasn’t until recently that marketers had real data to evaluate to see whether all that nail-biting was worth it, or just torture for the cuticles.
If you work in marketing or sales, you’re probably already familiar with sales sequences.
Sequences are the series of actions a salesperson takes to brings leads into the funnel and eventually turn them into buyers. They include phone calls, emails, in-person meetings, live demos and other touchpoints where salespeople and leads interact. They are pre-determined and, when done effectively, can lead to increased sales and revenue.
If you want to create an efficient sales sequence strategy of your own, here are some best practices to keep in mind.
