Infographic: The benefits of integrating social into email marketing

With the emergence of social media, email marketing seems a little unspectacular. But it’s not. Email is tremendously effective channel especially for repeat sales. Check out Chris Brogan’s website¬†or Social Media Examiner or anyone really and they all want your email (and not your Facebook fanaticism of Twitter follow). Why? Because email increases the likelihood that you will receive any message that they send.

I’m going to give this infographic a pass on one point: $44 ROI should read 44x ROI or $44 for every $1 spent on email marketing. I’ve seen that statistic floating around, and though it substantiates the low cost of using email marketing I don’t think the statistic itself is particularly worthwhile to most businesses. Email is cheap. That said, the mobile statistics and social sharing are spot on.

Let me know what you think.

    Hey Jim, has this infographic roamed off?

      Disregard, an hour later it’s back. Must have been trouble on the hosting server.

        Thanks Kim, actually your comment was very helpful. I’ve had trouble formatting these embeds, so I think you helped me make the decision to host the images on my site and link back accordingly. I appreciate the note!

          No problem at all! Was very odd to see it missing. And then magically back!

    You really make it appear so easy with your presentation however I to find this topic
    to be actually one thing that I believe I might never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely vast for me. I am having a look ahead to your subsequent put up,
    I’ll try to get the hang of it!
