When looking at different vectors to market towards your customer-base, you may ask yourself “What does email offer over social media?”. Well, first of all, you should be asking us instead of talking to yourself. Secondly, plenty!
When looking at why to use email as your campaigning vector, you should look at the total size of your audience. There are 2.9 BILLION active email users, nearly three times the number of active Twitter and Facebook users COMBINED. And, even when counting Facebook and Twitter, social media only accounts for 0.2% of all emails sent per day (not counting unsolicited messages).
Also, think to yourself; how many times have you flipped over your phone and checked your email in the past hour? You might think it’s not too often, but recent studies have shown that on average, someone checks their email every 6 minutes. While on Facebook or Twitter, someone is more likely to check their feed or wall once every 3 hours. And then there is the Return on Investment factor, where email handily beats facebook advertising in exposure, cost, and effectiveness by a factor of 10!
