Why email marketing should be the focal point of your virtual event
Whether you’re hosting your first virtual event, or are a seasoned expert with several successful online events under your belt, communication with exhibitors and attendees is a critical step to keep your stakeholders aware of the bigger picture you’re trying to paint.
Regardless of the event type, engaging visitors and exhibitors — and building the energy that results in high attendance and demand from businesses to book your booths — is what leads to events that are a hit among targeted audiences. This is where email marketing will be your trusted ally to make magic happen!
Here are some stats worth looking at:
- The number of global email users amounted to 3.9 billion in 2019, or more than half the world’s population
- In 2019, about 293.6 billion emails were exchanged each day, and this number is always increasing
- About 86% of business professionals prefer to use email when communicating for business purposes — it’s no wonder that it has emerged as one of the most effective channels to not only promote your event but also build a loyal brand following
- An impressive 72% of millennials identify email as their preferred means of business communication — a huge market that is easy to tap into by using the right email campaigns
