I've had the good fortune to work on acquisition campaigns for much of my digital career. This means a majority of my time is spent identifying the right channel to deliver a message that will resonate with the consumer, driving immediate action. For these efforts, email is always a top marketing channel because you have a group of folks who have opted in to receive a message; usually telling you exactly what they want (so much data to work with!).
Email can be a great marketing channel if planned right. It's important to keep in mind that media planning for email differs from display, search, and even social CRM. There are several types of email programs, but for the purposes of this discussion I am focusing on targeting new audiences/email lists.
Here is how you should get started:
There is also pay per lead, lead capture, and co-registration, which were not covered above but are worth reviewing.
Then monitor, analyze, and optimize. Email may be different, but if you plan for it, you can structure a very successful campaign.
