Economics of Email Marketing

Originally published in the April 2012 Edition of Thoughtspot.

The economic climate today might lead you to wonder if email  marketing is truly still worth the time and expense. We’ve been doing a little  research and have some insight for you on the economics of email marketing.

The Direct  Marketing Association shows an ROI of $40.56 for every $1 invested in 2011.

If you need some help calculating  your ROI, check out this ROI  calculator from Bplans.
