Email Marketing is one of the best methods to grow traffic to your website and grow your business.

Are you kidding me? Isn’t Email Marketing dead already?

Stats show it isn’t.

People still send and read emails.

In fact, email is the most efficient channel to reach to your customers.

Unlike Ads and Social Media, where you promote your products/posts to the random people with the hope of getting leads and then the conversion, you already have the leads that are interested in your products in email marketing– why would they subscribe to your email list if they didn’t like you?

So, you should start collecting emails from your visitors so that you can drive traffic from email and grow your loyal fan base.

If you are using WordPress, BlossomThemes Email Newsletter plugin will make email collection easier for you.
