One of the very first things you see when you visit Spin Sucks is, “Emails suck. Ours don’t.”
So you might assume we’re proponents of email marketing.
And you’d be right.
Yet, not all content creators and communications pros feel the same.
Some of them shout from the rooftops, “Email is a waste of time! Nobody gets anything out of opt-ins!”
The other side stands their ground and shouts back, “You all are crazy! We shouldn’t give everything away for free! If you’re a real communications pro, you would even collect emails!”
It never ends.
The purpose of most emails is to drive traffic and business outcomes.
And no matter whether some experts claim email marketing has gone the way of the dinosaur, I’m willing to bet they have a newsletter opt-in lurking somewhere on their site.
It gives us exposure to potential clients with a few clicks and, to top it all off, it’s useful.
Not all email marketing is created equal.
To be fair, a lot emails actually do suck.
But that doesn’t mean yours has to.
And that’s what I’m talking about on this episode of the Spin Sucks Podcast.
