eTargetMedia, a leading provider of Email Lists, Postal Lists, Data Append and Creative Solutions announced their 2019 annual predictions for email marketing success in the new year. As we head in to the new year, most marketing budgets have refilled giving brand marketers a chance to refresh and re-strategize their email marketing campaigns.
eTargetMedia announces their annual predictions for email marketing success to inform marketers of the trends and developments that will take over the email marketing industry over the next 12 months as well as providing a review of upcoming email marketing trends. Among this year’s trends are advancements in email marketing personalization, increased interactive content, the growth of mobile email sales and the increase of authentic email marketing brand experiences.
- Email Personalization – Email personalization advancements will allow marketers to put targeted content in front of the right consumers at the right time. Consumers are expecting quality content now more than ever and personalization is the key to delivering engaging email content to consumers.
- Mobile Email Sales – Over the last couple of years, data proved that consumers were cautious about purchasing items through mobile devices because of security concerns. That trend is changing with current data proving that consumers have embraced mobile e-commerce and are now placing orders (including bigger ticket items) on their smart phones and tablets. In 2019, it will be more common for consumers to purchase products on mobile devices so email marketers will need to adopt their email strategy and develop emails with detailed product content and mobile responsive transactional elements.
- Increased Interactive Content – Interactive content is predicted to advance in 2019 giving subscribers an opportunity to engage and interact with emails more. Interactive content may include transactional emails with features like add to cart buttons, book hotels, take a poll, play a game, follow social media sites, watch videos and more. The interactive elements can help boost sales and build brand loyalty.
- Authentic Email Marketing Brand Experiences – Email marketing will deliver more authentic brand experiences in 2019. Trust in social media is fading due to recent scandals including sketchy data and privacy practices. Consumers are also aware of how much social media influencers are getting paid as well as understanding how easy it is to post fake news on social media sites. This mistrust in social media will give email marketers the perfect opportunity to connect with consumers in a more authentic way and allow consumers to connect directly with the brand.
“In the new year, we are going to see more personalized content delivered through email marketing, including more interactive content as well as more authentic brand experiences,” stated Harris Kreichman, Managing Partner of eTargetMedia. “Email marketing messages can deliberately be designed to react to customer behavior and deliver content that piques subscriber’s interests more. This innovation in technology will enable marketers to execute email marketing campaigns that perform better and more efficiently.”
