Going mobile-centric

Interactive content
Marketers are looking towards more engagement and content that could go beyond traditional newsletters. Interactive content will meet all the requirements of email marketers and make them stand out.
According to stats, “Adding Interactive content to the emails helps in taking click rates up to 300% and open rates up to 75%.”
Interactive content will provide more opportunities for marketers to connect with their customers using gifs, emoji’s, and even video.

Personalized Emails will be acknowledged more
According to Statista reports,
“The open rate for e-mails with a personalized message was 18.8%, as compared to 13.1% without any personalization in 2018.”
Personalization has become an important tool for email marketing campaigns. It is not limited to the subject line. Recipients that receive emails that are personalized and relevant to them are going to be more engaged.
If you’re sending the right email to the right potential customer, your engagement metrics will skyrocket.
