Why email marketing is still king when it comes to boosting revenue in 2014
Email marketing is still more effective at attracting customers and producing sales than social media.
Despite all the hype about Social Media as a marketing tool, a recent survey by Custora (https://www.custora.com/) showed some staggering statistics.
Here are the findings of that survey.
- Email marketing is responsible for a fourfold increase in customer acquisition in the last 4 years.
- Customers who come to a business website via email stay longer and shop more.
- On average email marketing accounted for 7% of new customer acquisition in 2013.
- Organic search resulted in 16% or customers acquired.
- Customer’s who come to a business via organic search are 50% more valuable than average and,
- Those that come via email 11% more valuable than average.
- Facebook and Twitter are almost insignificant, only adding 0.92% of customers.
- Both Facebook and Twitter customers are less valuable than average.
Email may not be the trendy way to look for customers but it is showing itself to be the’old faithful’, and seems to deliver reliable results over time.
So what it is that email produces such significant results?
Well, in combination with the fact that email marketing is permission based, it could be that smartphones (the number one way people access their emails) take your business message right in the hand of a listening audience.
Smartphone are the new inbox so every business needs to pay attention to creating email that is attractive ans easy to read on a mobile phone.
