How should I use bulk email marketing?
Email marketing software like Express Email Marketing makes it easy to create email campaigns and build newsletters. Use the newsletter templates that come with EEM to share how-tos, tips, and news of interest with customers.
Planning a sale? Send a bulk email campaign to let your customers know about it. To increase the number of people who open your message, include the sale details in the subject line (ex: 20% off cashmere throws, 2 days only). This makes it easy for busy readers to tell at a glance that the email is worth opening, and they'll thank you for it through repeat purchases.
What is social marketing? Should I use it for my business?
Social marketing involves using social networks, such as Facebook® and Twitter®, as venues to connect with your customers and continue the conversation. When combined with an email marketing solution, it multiplies your power to reach more potential customers.
Connecting your business' social profiles in Express Email Marketing is quick, and it gives you a centralized location where you can easily communicate and manage your business' social presence.

Am I stuck to a newsletter template, or can I customize the emails?
We're all about options and this is no exception. If you want to use a template, select from more than 160 options to get started, and then add text, images or a logo to make it your own.

Are there any things I shouldn't do with email marketing?
Don't overuse it. Nothing annoys subscribers faster than too many messages received too closely together. Respect your customers' privacy and act promptly to take them off your email list when asked.
When you're looking for email marketing solutions, consider features that help with this. Express Email Marketing includes an unsubscribe link in every campaign and automatically removes subscribers at their request. However, it's best to familiarize yourself with the anti-spam laws if you have other questions.
