Yesmail: Record Number of Email Opens, Mobile Purchases in Q2

CHICAGO, Aug. 31, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the first time, more than a quarter of all email-driven purchases were completed on a mobile device, according to Yesmail, the email solutions provider within Yes Lifecycle Marketing.

Yesmail's latest quarterly benchmark report, the Email Marketing Compass also found that smartphones drove 54 percent of all mobile orders from email. As order values increase year-over-year, this is in step with predictions that mobile would make up a third of all email-generated revenue by the end of the year.

"Mobile purchasing has become a major part of consumers' routines," said Michael Fisher, president, Yes Lifecycle Marketing. "Now more than ever, marketers must make emails mobile-actionable by understanding how consumers use their mobile devices, what calls-to-action they are most likely to respond to, and how geolocation and time of day impact their interactions with brand messages."

Yesmail's findings indicate that marketers have improved their subscribers' mobile experiences. In Q2 2015, half of all emails were responsive, up from 28 percent from the previous year, a staggering 75 percent year-over-year increase.

Overall, Yesmail's benchmark report indicates that the second quarter of 2015 was a time of firsts, and marketers are continuing to adapt to the mobile consumer. Additional findings from the study include:

  • Consumers opened an average of four brand emails per week, the highest number of emails per opener recorded
  • Mobile click-to-open (CTO) increased 18 percent year-over-year and almost 30 percent since the second quarter of 2013.
  • Meanwhile, desktop CTO continues to decline, decreasing 15 percent year-over-year.



"Brands are making huge strides to engage consumers through mobile," said Michael Iaccarino, CEO and Chairman, Infogroup. "While this report demonstrates that marketers are doing a better job of catering to consumers' changing behavior, the next step to developing truly engaging experiences is working with companies like Yes Lifecycle Marketing to create dynamic cross-channel strategies to ensure consistent and complementary brand communications."
