3 reasons why email marketing is better than social media marketing. If you are a digital marketer, you cannot miss out on email marketing. Many digital marketers do not take email marketing and list building seriously because email open rates are on the decline and most of your emails land in the promotions tab if your subscribers are using Gmail. No one can limit access to your audience If you have an email list of 1,00,000 people and send a broadcast email to all of them, your message is going to land in the inbox of at least 98 percent of this audience.
