- Email marketing is a simple, effective and inexpensive way to reach out. For small business owners, this can be critical. Traditional marketing methods are often expensive and complicated, but with Constant Contact's drag and drop editor, it is very easy to create an email that can be sent to a select group or all of your mailing list for nearly no cost per message. Year after year, email marketing still tends to provide the highest return on investment(ROI) other online advertising strategies.

- Constant Contact has some fantastic reporting tools. They are easy to use and remove all the mystery from your marketing efforts. You can see who did or did not open your email, which links they clicked on, and more.
- Email is also effective because of the proliferation of smart phones. I'll bet most people you know have a smart phone, and use it to check their email. They can see your message at anytime or any place.
- Transactional emails are action-oriented, meaning many people will do something with that email. They may forward it to a friend, click to your site, reply with questions, or simply make a purchase.
- Email marketing is more effective than social media in acquiring new customers. Social media can still be an effective tool for your business, but for customer acquisition and retention, email marketing wins. In 2016 emarketer.com published this infographic showing the numbers.
