Ecommerce + Email Marketing = the Formula Long Lasting ROI

Your guide to badass ecommerce email marketing.


What is email marketing?

Email marketing isn’t merely a strategic framework. It’s a way of life. Just kidding! Well, sort of. All jokes aside, email marketing has become one of the most personal and impactful ways to connect with current customers and marketing funnel prospects.

By nature, it gives marketers direct access to customers and enables them to segment audiences based on the customer data they collect. Phenomenal, right? Even better (when done well), email marketing is one of the most cost-effective channels a brand can leverage.

Because it’s ideal for sending a variety of planned and targeted marketing communications that empower marketers to:

  • Drive sales & revenue
  • Boost engagement
  • Increase website traffic
  • Share thought leadership & education
  • Build long-lasting relationships & community

How does email marketing work?

The short answer: it works if you work it. The longer answer: email marketing is a tool that can be used to maximize the impact of your ecommence experience. If done intentionally, consistently and to scale, it can be a perpetual source of traffic to your online store and a fun way to engage your customer base.

Core Requirements:

  • An engaged subscriber base of contacts who look to you for content.


01Database of subscribed contacts

Building an email list of subscribers provides an opportunity to garner a more one-to-one rapport with your customers in an efficient and strategic way. You can easily share new products, services, promotions, and company updates.

Plus, it’s perfect for showcasing your brand personality and POV in ways that are harder to do on other platforms.

02ROI of email marketing

On average, email drives an ROI of $36 for every dollar spent, higher than any other channel. (litmus)

03Cost effectiveness

Three words: it’s budget friendly. Essentially, with email marketing there are zero costs required for printing postage, or ad space. You pay only a monthly fee from your email service provider that permits you to email as many inboxes as you desire.

What do the stats say about the results of email marketing for B2B and B2C Ecommerce Companies?

  • 31% of B2B marketers say email newsletters are the best way to nurture leads. (Hubspot)
  • 59% of B2B marketers say email is their most effective channel in terms of revenue generation. (WordStream)
  • 16% of B2C marketers believe that email newsletters are the highest-performing content marketing channel for securing leads. (Content Marketing Institute)

With privilege comes responsibility

Having access to a person’s inbox is a much more intimate level of contact with prospects. It’s not like a social media ad or television commercial. Email marketing relies on permission based interactions, meaning your subscribers are choosing to give you their email.

So with that privilege comes the responsibility for marketers to serve them with communications they actually want to receive. This is why data privacy laws and compliance are such an emphasis for email marketers. But more on that below!

Types & Examples

01Email campaigns (single-sends)

Email campaigns are single-send emails you create to publish at a specified time you choose to a list or lists of people you select from your email database and audience segments.

02Email automation (flows)

Email automations / flows are automated emails sent specifically to people who perform a particular action that triggers and sends a designated email you create.

For example, after signing up for an email newsletter, a user would receive an automated welcome message immediately after subscribing to confirm their subscription and thank them for joining the list—potentially with an offer, blog links, resources or whatever floats your boat.

Types of email automations:

Welcome email

Welcome new subscribers. Typically includes a coupon code with a first time offer, links to best-selling products, popular blogs, and important resources.
