E-mail marketing is consistently one of the most under-utilized small business marketing strategies. This becomes surprising when you realize that it is also one of the best performing marketing strategies in the world.
If you look at any large company you will see them sending e-mails out to keep their customers updated on their business, share new content or promote new products, services and sales. So what do they know that small business owners across Canada do not? Here are 7 reasons why you need to consider adding e-mail marketing to you marketing arsenal.
