Is there anything that email lists can't do?

"Despite the huge changes in digital technologies, email has stood the test of time and continues to be used in every organization across the world."

Lisa Vincent

With approximately 2.5 billion email users around the world, email enables us to have a much wider reach than any social media. And email offers the flexibility for one-way and two-way communication, everything from newsletters and announcements to discussion lists and online communities. Simply put, email is the most indispensable communication tool available.

Because email is the top activity of people online, research consistently shows that it's also the preferred channel for marketing messages and the most effective tool for acquiring customers and selling your products. Email allows you to get the richest data about your recipients and to use those powerful analytics to boost your results.

"It is well known that electronic mailing lists are the most economical and effective means of global communication and information exchange between large numbers of people."
