All this hype that email marketing is “dead”…
Is dead wrong. The reason I can say that is because email marketing will NEVER EVER go away.
SEO Pundits Are Fickle.
Furthermore is the fickle popularity of social media. The reality? We’re living in a social media bubble.
This notion is evidenced by the idea that email marketing has remained prevalent.
I would say at LEAST 50% of my traffic comes as a direct result of THIS very email list.
I get a ton of automated social traffic yes…
But the fact remains that the MAJORITY of traffic comes from email marketing. Period.
The Email Marketing Hypothesis
My hypothesis is that email marketing will remain prominent for some time to come.
Email marketing, according to my statistics, is the big daddy mac.
So here’s what I recommend you do… Take advantage of social media. Have it in your back burner.
But NEVER neglect the real big daddy mac, which will always be email marketing.
The best part? You’ll be taking immediate advantage of the social media bubble.
That’s right. You’ll instantly “take advantage” of Facebook. And the 99.99% of newbies who cling to Facebook like a baby to their bottle.
Hey – just because the bubble is a fad…
Doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of this phenomenon to build your list.
