Sending e-commerce newsletters

Whether you have a successful running store or just start your business, you might want to send out newsletters to your customers. A newsletter is an email with updates and useful information that you send to your customers on a regular basis using third-party services like Mailchimp.

Newsletters help to gain traffic, keep your customers in the know, and build brand loyalty. They offer interesting and helpful content, announce new products or events, promote your store, and more. To get such emails, customers should subscribe to your newsletter list.

You can learn more about how to grow your business with email marketing on the Ecwid blog.
