Here's the hard reality: most brands use their email lists in ways that harm, not strengthen their relationships with subscribers. Brands believe that an email opt-in is their license to share discount codes, promote their latest blog post or ask subscribers to download their shiny new white paper.
What's wrong with this picture?
It puts the brand at the center of the universe, while the model should be flipped (think a "subscriber first" mindset). After all, content that prioritizes serving an audience earns brands the right to sell them something.
It's time to take a content marketing approach to email marketing. And that means dropping the term "email marketing" altogether and creating the industry's best email newsletter. Address audience needs first and your brand wins.
