Consumers Prefer to Stay Connected with Businesses via Email

0

Did you know?

  • 68% of Canadians prefer to stay connected with brands via email
  • 12% report the telephone is their preferred connection
  • less than 10% prefer snail mail, in-person conversations or social media

“Canadian consumers are saying loud and clear that they want to stay in touch with businesses, and that they want to do so through email,” said Lisa Kember, regional director for Canada East at Constant Contact. “This is major validation for the businesses that are already leveraging email marketing and a wake-up call for those that have yet to get started. When it comes down to it, email marketing is really the only channel where businesses own the relationship with their contacts. With email, unlike social, you are guaranteed to get your message directly in front of your audience-in their inbox.”

Why do consumers choose to subscribe to a business’s email list? Their top reasons are:

  • Receive discounts and special offers (71 per cent)
  • Take part in specific promotions (38 per cent)
  • Stay informed on an ongoing basis (36 per cent)
