Monday Catch-up: A New Email Survey, Retail Trends and Lead Management

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'”

– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Almost 50% of retailers don’t collect email addresses via social or in-store

A new report from Yesmail suggests many marketers still have a lot of work to do when it comes to leveraging email. The 2016 Yesmail Channel Report surveyed 200 retailers at the National Retail Federation’s 2015 conference. Some of the findings:

  • 64% of brands don’t personalize email copy, and more than two-thirds don’t use customer data to personalize products and services featured in emails.
  • 60% of retailers are integrating email with social media channels like Facebook and Twitter, but only 36% use social media to improve the targeting and relevance.
  • Over two-thirds of retailers don’t collect consumers’ email addresses when they interact with the brand’s mobile app.
