When you put in place a system that captures email subscribers, and you send to that list regularly, your unlocking the power of email marketing. The list building aspect of the process is often misunderstood or neglected. Let's face it, if you don't have a big enough list you won't get the results your looking for. And your list must be created using email marketing best practices, including double opt-in and providing clearly visible unsubscribe links in all email marketing messages. So to build a sizable list, and to keep it growing, you have to be diligent about the way you build your list.

Email Marketing is More Than Just Newsletters
The monthly newsletter is the staple email marketing approach for many small businesses. Even this standard approach to email marketing can have many variations. When we think about the power of email marketing, we also want to think about the overall approach, the full picture. This includes ALL the emails being sent from your brand, including all general website emails (registration confirmations, order summaries etc.) and the personal emails of each company employee.
Consider this, some companies have found that simply making a few changes the signature lines of their employees when communicating with customers and suppliers has created an instant increase in website traffic or even in sales of certain products. It just a matter of applying some digital marketing logic to every aspect of your email marketing, and consider every single email sent to be a part of your email marketing.
