Email marketing is one of the most cost effective ways to reach your customers. Most people these days have access to their email 24/7 through their mobile phones.

Collecting email addresses offline has been more difficult for companies looking to collect emails in-store, at events, etc. Most companies simply have a paper sign-up form near the checkout counter or at their trade show booth. As you can imagine, this is not a very effective strategy as people can leave bad emails, handwriting can be illegible, and you need to have someone enter it into your database. The iPad has made it much easier for companies to capture emails.
