What sort of email?
In its broadest sense, the term covers every email you ever send to a customer, potential customer or public venue. In general, though, it’s used to refer to:
0 Sending direct promotional emails to try and acquire new customers or persuade existing customers to buy again
0 Sending emails designed to encourage customer loyalty and enhance the customer relationship
0 Placing your marketing messages or advertisements in emails sent by other people

1. Direct mail
2. Sending people a print newsletter
