Around 60% of people suggest that receiving offers and deals from a particular business by email increases the chances that they will continue to engage with that business. Email marketing, if done the right way will help drive sales and increase engagement.

When the customer enters your e-commerce site, be sure to have a sign-up form which is simple and quick to complete. Make sure the email marketing done is relevant and not too sales oriented. Having special offers for first timers and long term customers will boost your engagement.
