Email marketing is a form of digital marketing in which helpful products, services, and information can be shared directly to a client or potential client’s inbox. For attorneys and law firms, email marketing can take on a variety of forms, from newsletters and promotions to automated check-ins with people who have expressed interest in representation.
While email marketing may feel intimidating at first, thanks to its low cost and automatable nature, it doesn’t have to be stressful. According to DMA, in 2018 every $1 spent on email marketing yielded a $32 return on investment. This makes email marketing a tried and true standby for many industries, including legal.
