B2B Email marketing is a direct and cost effective way to:
- Keep in touch with an existing customer base to keep customers up to date with new offers and news
- Help convert potential customers
- Generate new enquiries from emailing to a purchased database list
NOTE Sending emails to a purchased database list have limited results and you will need to consider your strategy carefully – we can help with this. These types of emails will work most effectively as part of an overall B2B inbound/content marketing campaign, or if you have an inside sales team that can follow these emails up.
