    Has anyone considered email marketing? Note, it used to be a big thing back in the 2000s. However, nowadays I think it's been replaced by social media marketing. Social media acts in a way similar to an email list.

    Anyhow, I suppose the main problem with email is that a lot of people ignore commercial emails even if they signed up for them, but I could be wrong.

    An email list though is better because you don't have to pay to email your own list. Nonetheless, it's gone the way of the dodo.

    Email marketing is still a thing. News outlets do it, and they charge advertisers quite a large amount to advertise monthly, or on a weekly basis.

    I get email ads every week from different people advertising stuff.

    Just like anything, you just have to have the right strategy in order to get the most mileage out of it. Email marketing is still a big thing, and if you do it right it can be super effective. And just like with anything else, content is king. If you provide valuable content consistently, people will be more likely to read and not unsubscribe.

    My forum sends out newsletters and occasional important board updates via email, but nothing specifically targeted. The newsletter does boost visits and bring back some members who haven't been around in a while. I think email marketing is still a good strategy to employ alongside all the other promotion/advertising techniques, it just takes more time & effort. With this type of marketing it is important to make sure each email has a personal and/or customized feel to it- you don't want to seem robotic or automated as that'll cause people to just glance over it or not open the email. Catchy subject lines work well too.

    I know someone who used email to promote a newly launched website. It was successful as evidenced by the hits counter. But the emails were not ordinary spam. They were creative with the emails that receivers tend to be curious. A very short but interesting story that if you want to know the ending then just click on the link. That's the style of their emails.

    It's not useless guy. I'm using it for many my promotion campaigns. When ever I have new coupons publish on my site. I also use email marketing to alert people know about this. And some reminders about my site too. IMO
