Email Marketing: A marketing strategy with 4400% ROI

Yes you read that right! With over 4400% return on investments (ROI) on average, e-mail marketing generally by a brand (big or small), is a valid customer relationship management (CRM) tool. Counted as one of the all-encompassing digital marketing strategies, here are some other handy, insightful statistics about e-mail marketing that can prove convenient:

1. About 49% of your customer e-mails are opened on mobile devices. Therefore, ensuring e-mails are optimized for smartphones would increase the effectiveness of your message.

2. Around 74% of marketers believe that e-mail marketing leads to an increase in customer engagement.

3. Custom-made e-mails have a 6x higher transaction rate and, therefore, need to be used more often.

4. Near about 91% of users check their e-mails at least once in a day. Sending out rich, insightful e-mails may help in establishing an end-to-end customer relationship.

5. Nearly 54% of all e-mails are considered to be spam. Your e-mails must abide by the anti-spam rules and have a meaningful subject, with an unsubscribe CTA and brand name attached at the bottom of it.

The best part about e-mail marketing is that it can be entirely customized as and when required. Therefore, offer an individual touch to your approach, one way or the other. Over time, such personalization gradually develops into customer loyalty that can add value to your brand online.

Revolutionise your Digital Marketing acumen with Conversion Rate Optimization

Conversion rate optimization (CRO) refers to the meticulous processes involved in increasing the number of online visitors to complete any action like filling in a contact form. It is through the help of the CRO method that you get to understand the activity of your users over the website, elements that are keeping them intrigued, etc. The following digital marketing statistics about the importance of CRO would help you learn more about it:

1. About 86% of customers prefer watching visual content like videos on landing pages, thus observing a significant boost in conversions. Therefore, it is crucial to keep your website rich in meaningful content.

2. Despite the importance of having sufficient CRO statistics, more than 68% of small businesses don’t follow any solid-customer rate optimization strategy.

3. Adding up any custom call to action (CTA) can help drive 42% more visitors to your online website. Therefore, make sure your CRO strategies include relevant CTAs.
4. The worst thing that you can include in your CRO strategy is to ask your customers to provide their contact number. Since customers aren’t keen on sharing sensitive personal details, it can lead them away from your brand.


Effective CRO methods can help in achieving targets in optimal time settings as well as expand your understanding of your customers better. An absolute must-have, these statistics need to be followed thoroughly.

Proven Strategy to Build Brand Visibility: E-Commerce and SEO

Following each other closely in digital marketing statistics, search engine optimization (SEO) refers to the proven, formula-backed methods that can improve the overall brand visibility and everyday traffic to your website. It helps in distributing rich content across trusted platforms and gaining customer trust online, leading to conversions. As e-Commerce has penetrated deep into the shopping habits of customers across the world, several intricate details need to be learned carefully. A few of them are:

1. Over 72% of brand marketers reveal that meaningful content development is their crucial SEO tactic, as it helps your brand to reach a newer audience.

2. Google alone receives more than 77,000 searches in a second. Imagine, how many people might stumble upon your brand when they are searching with the right keyword? Therefore, your SEO strategy needs to develop the latest, updated methods to target essential keywords and prepare accordingly.

3. Around 2.05 billion people are online buyers and therefore, need to be provided with customized services and products for better engagement. If your business is not online yet, you are surely missing out on the massive demographic of millennials and baby boomers as customers.
