CHICAGO, Dec. 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Overall revenue coming from mobile devices is up 9.9 percent year-over-year (YoY), according to Yesmail, the email service provider within Yes Lifecycle Marketing.
Yesmail's latest benchmark report, the Email Marketing Compass: The Year of the Smartphone, found that consumers are purchasing more and making bigger purchases on their mobile devices. The mobile average order is now $103.80, an 18.3 percent increase YoY, and a 1.3 percent increase quarter-over-quarter.
Overall mobile revenue is up 6.1 percent from Q2 2015 and 36 percent from Q3 2014, with iPhones generating 30 percent and Android phones capturing about a quarter. While iPads represented almost half of all mobile revenue in Q3, tablet-specific revenue is declining YoY. Smartphone-specific revenue, however, is on the rise for the second consecutive quarter, driving over half of all mobile revenue (56 percent), and this number is growing.
"These findings indicate consumers have become more comfortable purchasing via the convenience of their mobile devices and will likely purchase even more during the holiday season," said Michael Fisher, president, Yes Lifecycle Marketing. "Marketers must continue to propel their mobile strategies with strong, personalized content and responsive design in order to reach consumers at the opportune moment they are ready to purchase."
Moreover, mobile is driving engagement. Yesmail found the gap between mobile and desktop click-to-open (CTO) rates is continuing to shrink. In fact, in Q3 2015, mobile CTO rates were 13.7 percent, while desktop CTO rates were 18 percent, the smallest deficit ever. Additionally, compared to Q3 2014, mobile CTO rates have grown 13.4 percent.
"Yesmail continues to drive effective mobile strategies for their clients," said Mike Iaccarino, CEO and Chairman of Infogroup. "Based on the findings of this report, marketers promoting seamless mobile interactions that make it easy to convert will experience a definitive increase in sales."
