In digital marketing news, it’s important to know what works when seeking to reach consumers online. In a new report from Digital Commerce 360, in conjunction with Bizrate Insights, they surveyed 1,015 online shoppers this year to better understand their buying behavior, and how they respond to the digital advertising they encounter while online. The survey found that email marketing continues to have a large influence on consumers, with 72% of online shoppers opening email advertising at least a few times a week, and 43% perusing daily or more. The report also found that one of the best ways to entice consumers to open emails is through the promise of deals, with 62% of respondents stating they’re most likely to open promotions-driven emails.
