What Benefits Does Email Marketing Offer Charities?

As well as being affordable and efficient, emails are welcomed by recipients, particularly those from charities. Unlike many other marketing methods, emails aren't intrusive or irritating. Subscribers enjoy reading them, and are often more than happy to forward interesting messages to their families, friends and colleagues:
