Email Marketing has exploded in the past few years. There are a number of services out there to manage mailing lists. Email services also include a number of data collection tools that allow quick assessment of the campaign. Many include integrated social media tools that allow senders to collect detailed information about recipients of their messages via social media sites like Facebook. Publicly shared data such as location, age, and gender can be collected. Clients can also integrate Google Analytics data to see if a campaign directed traffic to their website, and what they viewed while visiting.

According to research conducted by the Direct Marketing Association, email marketing generated an ROI of $43.62 for every dollar spent on it in 2009. The expected figure for 2010 is $42.08. As such, it outperforms all the other direct marketing channels examined, such as direct mail. In Datran Media's 2010 Annual Marketing & Media Survey, 39.4% of industry executives said the advertising channel that performed strongest for them was email.

For the past three years Mark McKenna Photographic has been designing email campaigns for local clients like Praxis Fitness.

Be it a new session of Praxis Fitness Boot Camp sent to alumni of the class or sending a grand opening announcement for Origin Design Lab email marketing has proven to be a great investment for clients.
