27 | 3 Email Marketing Myths


You have heard about the buzz of email marketing, but you may still have a few doubts. Some of those doubts may be actually be an email marketing myth. In this episode I delve into why email marketing should not be overlooked and how it can be a pivotal tool for driving sales and engagement, significantly outperforming social media in various aspects.

Myth #1: Social Media Outperforms Email Marketing

The average email open rates for e-commerce businesses are exponentially higher than the organic reach on social platforms like Facebook. The comparison between the click rates—1.23% for email and a mere 0.07% for Facebook—clearly indicates that email is a more potent medium for driving sales.

Myth #2: You Need Perfectly Branded Emails with Matching Images

More Images + Less Content = Higher Chance of Landing in Spam

Less Images + More Content = Higher Chance of Landing in Main Inbox

Myth #3: You Will Annoy Your Audience with Emails

Your audience is on your email list so they can hear from you. Take it a step further with segmentation and personalization. By dividing your email list according to the interests and behaviors your subscribers, you can tailor your messages to be more relevant and appealing. This not only improves the open and click-through rates but also builds a stronger relationship with your audience, as the content they receive feels customized to their preferences.

So What

Email marketing is incredibly powerful but it requires acknowledgement that the ideas above are indeed myths. You are capable of starting today. Email marketing  may not be the newest tool in the shed, but it is undoubtedly one of the sharpest.
