Email Marketing Software Overview
What is Email Marketing?
Email marketing is designed to help a company maintain communications with customers. This builds loyalty, increases brand recognition, and drives sales.
The challenge with email marketing is to strike a balance between efficiency and personalization so that you can:
Maximize a one-to-one sense of connection with individual customers.
Reach out to hundreds or thousands of customers at once, at minimum cost.
Email marketing software helps marketers create, send and track subscriber emails while complying with the regulations that govern email outreach. It does this on a bulk level, which increases efficiency. These bulk emails are commonly referred to as email blasts.
Tools range from batch-and-blast products to products that allow users to configure personalized, triggered messages. The messages are based on the behavior or demographics of subscribers. The simplest solutions are designed for sending newsletters or advertisements.
All email marketing tools facilitate ‘big’ sends. However, what ‘big’ means can vary. Therefore, make sure the product you choose will work for your list size without causing performance issues or breaking the bank.
Most email marketing software offers the ability to design engaging emails without writing code. This is possible by using a drag and drop or what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) editor. Advanced email marketing tools allow for retargeting, triggered drip sequences, and segmented subscriber lists. Many of them integrate with CRM, CMS, and ecommerce platforms to make running email marketing campaigns even more efficient.

Email Marketing vs. Marketing Automation Software
Email marketing software is closely related to marketing automation software. All marketing automation platforms include email marketing, and many email marketing tools include some degree of automation. But marketing automation tools also include broader marketing capabilities not connected to email. These include lead management, campaign calendars, event management, landing pages, social campaigns, advanced analytics, and more.
Email marketing tools are typically priced on a subscription model. Pricing depends on the number of email contacts you have, and the number of emails you send each month.
Free plans exist, but typically limit the number of emails sent each month. They also may require senders to keep the email marketing tool’s branding in the footer. On the lower end, an email marketing service can cost as little as $25 for up to 2,000 contacts. Mid-tier service runs up to $500/mo. for up to 50,000 people. Enterprise level email marketing software goes up from there. At some point, depending on scale and complexity it might make more sense to think about investing in full-blown marketing automation.
