Email is a great direct-sales tool. But, if you’re using email just to push your latest promos, you’re cheating yourself and robbing your customers of the opportunity to connect more deeply with your brand. No matter how wonderful your brand or how great your products and services are, your customers are not always in the market to buy from each email you send. They’ll lose interest if your only message to them is “Buy this.”
