I need more subscribers - what should I do?
This is almost a science of its own. There are just too many tactics to write about here (our project managers will help you with all this and other best practices and strategies if you work with us), but we'll try to give a brief overview of the most popular tactics.
One of the most popular tactics for B2B companies to get email subscribers is Inbound Marketing. You can complement Inbound with digital ads to speed up the process.
Inbound Marketing is all about offering your visitors and prospects helpful insights in return for their email. If your content is valuable, you will get links, you will be visible on search results, and your visitors will want more - and they'll want to subscribe and tell others.

Does email marketing still work?
We still get this question from time to time. Year after year, the answer is the same: Yes.
Studies and surveys show that email marketing is still (as of 2018 when this page was latest updated) the most popular channel for B2B marketing, and most companies still find it to be the most effective way to build a relationship with their target audience. Based on our own audience, we see no signs of this slowing down.
What has changed is how email marketing is used and what works.
One thing is and will likely always be the same: Great content sells. Bad content doesn't.
But what makes great content is different today than it was just a few years ago. The general trend is towards personalization. While you could blast the same email to all your contacts back then, you have to be more relevant for each individual today - otherwise you lose their interest.
That's why the demands on email marketing software is increasing. Today, email marketing software needs to be able to identify your various segments, track their interests, and send personalized and relevant content to each of your contacts.
