Permission-based email marketing is the foundation of every successful email marketing strategy.

So, what exactly is permission-based email marketing?

It begins with making sure you are getting permission before adding new contacts to your email list.

Asking for permission shows your audience that you respect their privacy. It also ensures that you’re only communicating with people who are interested in hearing from your business.

Permission-based email does not allow the buying of email lists and directly combats unsolicited email promotions, otherwise known as SPAM emails.
