Email newsletters inform customers about company news and bring brand awareness to the reader. Think of an email newsletter as a mini, email version of a newspaper. This email campaign should include relevant news about your industry and business. You can include recent blog posts, new product info, special offers, and more. Make sure your contact information is easy to find. The purpose of your newsletter isn’t to sell, but to intrigue customers and have them reach out to you because they thought your newsletter was interesting or helpful.
