Email Marketing vs. Social Marketing
Social Media Cons
- Too Much Competition – There are so many social media posts daily that it is harder to get your posts seen.
- Lower Conversion Rates – It is more difficult to turn visitors from social media sites into paying customers right away. You usually need to build trust first.
Also think about it, once you get people to subscribe to your email list you can send them emails to encourage them to follow you on social sites.
Why You Should Build an Email Marketing List
Social sites will come and go, but if you have an email list you don’t have to worry about losing all your fans on one particular social website.
Benefits of Having an Email List
- Direct Communication – You can send updates directly to your audience.
- Build Trust – By sharing helpful information with your audience you can build trust for your name and brand.
