Anyone who has access to an email address would probably know how popular mass emails and newsletters have become today. The benefits of sending out bulk emails are fairly self-explanatory: you can customize email templates to your marketing message and then send it out to a huge number of people in a short amount of time, for free (or very inexpensively). From a value standpoint, that is tough to beat.
On the contrary, if you opt to send a direct printed mail, go for an ad in a publication or use any other method of traditional advertising, then you know how expensive it can be. With the advent of smartphones that enable people to check their email from anywhere, mass mail has given marketers a great power: direct access to their customers’ pockets.
Here at Tigersheet, we do acknowledge and realize that bulk emails can have a great impact on many businesses. In fact, that’s why we have our own bulk email feature called Mail Merge using which users can send bulk emails and run email marketing campaigns
