Cyber Monday Email Volume Increases by 87 Percent from 2014 to 2015

CHICAGO, Dec. 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enterprise clients increased their email send by 87 percent on Cyber Monday and by 31 percent on Black Friday, according to Yesmail, the email solutions provider within Yes Lifecycle Marketing. This record volume for Yesmail clients, indicates brands are back in full force and just as determined as ever to bring relevant communications and valuable offers to their customers.

"Yesmail's executional excellence continues to yield phenomenal results for our clients," said Michael Fisher, president, Yes Lifecycle Marketing. "With a record setting Cyber Monday of nearly 200MM sent emails, we beat industry standards by sustaining a 99 percent inboxing rate."

And consumers are responding. Email-driven revenue for both Black Friday and Cyber Monday has more than doubled from 2014 to 2015. Specifically, the number of email-driven Cyber Monday purchases grew by 129 percent and the number of email-driven Black Friday purchases grew by 162 percent. Interestingly, while reports of in-store sales were noted as bleak in 2015, this one and a half times growth in online purchases on Black Friday could indicate a trend in that brands should consider marketing, what have traditionally been their Black Friday store-busters, more strongly to online "Cyber Friday" consumers.

Additionally, 55 percent of Black Friday emails were clicked on a mobile device in 2015; this is up 18 percent from 2014. As many retailers offer similar Black Friday discounts in-store and online, consumers are becoming more likely to opt for the convenience of mobile shopping. As supported in Yesmail's recently released benchmark report, the Email Marketing Compass: The Year of the Smartphone, consumers are purchasing more and making bigger purchases on their mobile devices.

"With zero hiccups, Yesmail demonstrates their unrelenting drive to deliver on success for their clients," said Mike Iaccarino, CEO and Chairman of Infogroup. "As the digital solutions arm within Yes Lifecycle Marketing, they continue to exceed growing industry demands and help their clients achieve the maximum return on their investment."
