9 Examples of Broadcast Emails
Broadcast emails are an integral part of any marketing strategy.
These are the emails that are most commonly sent to your main list and either promote something or maintain your relationship with a subscriber.
For example, a broadcast email is an email that an airline sends to its subscribers to talk about flight deals they are currently running (a promotional email). Or it is a weekly email newsletter that a company sends to its subscribers, as we do at DM Insider (a relational email).
If your email can tick one of the following, it is a broadcast email:
- It was sent manually
- It was sent to your "main list" of email subscribers
- It was NOT sent to subscribers in an automated follow-up campaign
- It is time critical
And companies send a lot of them. These emails are incredibly important to our marketing strategies as they keep our subscribers up to date with developments in our business and especially our products.
