E-mail is a beautiful thing, it is quick, free, lists are easily updated, and you can automate your promotion process so that mailings go out on a regular basis. The downside of email is “delete”. No one ever has to open your note or look at your imagery before is has been thrown away. Another disadvantage of email is the shear volume of e-mail received on any given day. The number of emails in an InBox grows substantially when you work in a corporate situation, and your promotion stands a good chance of being lost amid notes for meetings, deadlines and client demands.
