Email direct marketing is the clear winner when it comes to efficiency and cost-effectiveness for both B2B and B2C businesses
Lititz, PA (PRWEB) December 6, 2006
As marketers engage in substantial holiday ad campaigns, they're finding significant success this year in email direct marketing. In fact, even print campaigns, like Sephoria's full-page October advertisement in "O" magazine, are beginning to promote opt-in email marketing list registration. Once customers opt-in to email marketing systems, companies have found noteworthy increases in ROI.
What benefits are email marketers seeing? According to the Direct Marketing Association (DMA), email direct marketing provides the highest ROI, with $57.25 returned for every dollar spent in 2005 compared to just a $7.08 return for print catalog and $22.52 for non-email Internet marketing ad spend.
The DMA further predicts U.S. email-driven sales providing a compound annual growth rate of 14.9 percent between 2006 and 2011. Already, commercial bulk email marketing campaigns have generated $16.5 billion in sales for 2005 in the United States, with sales expected to reach $18.5 billion in 2006 and $37 billion by 2011. Many businesses are finding these success metrics hard to ignore.
"Email direct marketing is the clear winner when it comes to efficiency and cost-effectiveness for both B2B and B2C businesses," states Ross Kramer, CEO. "Companies that choose to leverage this technology and perfect their strategies now should have a greater advantage in the years to come."
