In a study performed by Econsultancy, where more than 1,400 U.S. consumers were surveyed, email proves to be more successful for e-commerce than social networks. The study asked participants how they preferred to receive information on sales and specials. Here are the results:
- 42% said via email notification.
- 33% said via phone.
- 17% said online chat.
- 4% said postal mail.
- 3% said a social site.
In a study performed by MarketingSherpa, “Email Marketing Benchmark Survey,” MarketingSherpa surveyed U.S. email marketers to indicate social media’s influence on email marketing. In this study, 81% of participants said that social media extends the reach of email content to new markets, 78% agreed that social media increases brand reputation and awareness, and 53% agreed that social media increases the ROI of email programs.
According to a study performed by Morpace, “Facebook’s Impact on Retailers,” 68% of U.S. Facebook users are more likely to purchase from or visit a retailer after they’ve received a positive referral from a Facebook friend.
