When someone tells you that email marketing doesn’t work because it is outdated, it probably means that it doesn’t work for them. This doesn’t mean that it’s because it is outdated. Instead, it might be that they are doing it wrong. They could be sending their email newsletters to the wrong audience or they might just not be getting it quite right.
If your marketing isn’t generating sales for your business, then you should reassess what you are doing. Marketing, including email marketing, works for all sorts of business. However, it only works when it is being done right.
