What consumers think...
• Consumers prefer email as a marketing channel - Twice as much as any other channel -
46% compared to 26% for post
• GDPR continues to reassure consumers about how brands treat their personal data. -
42% - BUT - 34% still say they often wonder how a brand got their email address!
• The average consumer has around two personal email addresses and one for work.
• However...Only 13% of people say over half of marketing emails are useful.
What about the content?
• 65% - Want Discount and offers relevant
• 59% - Want e-receipts from stores
• 43% - Want notice of new
products/services and sales relevant to

prevailing reasons for their favourite
What do they do next?
When on a desktop

• 25% - Save the email for later
When on a smartphone:-
• 14% - Buy straight away
• 35% - Go to the website - not via the email

You can see here that email attribution could be difficult
The investment business case...
Database is 50,000
If you were to send non targeted emails. Revenue from email =
£1.4m (£28 on average per customer)
However if for 15000 you were able to deliver deeper targeted
messages. Your new revenue would be:-
25000 @ £42 per customer = £1m
25000 @ £28 per customer = £700k
New revenue from email = £1.7m (an extra £300k)
The cost - s/w & services - £50,000
That’s 6 times ROI!
Understanding your audience
Apart from product recommendations… there are ways in which
personalisation can deliver useful messages for the consumer
1. Post purchase receipts - easy to access
2. Post purchase content - about the
product you’ve bought
1. Replenishment and renewal
84% consumers want to be treated as a person … and not a number.
However, there is a fine line between keeping relevant and being creepy.
1. Be Sensitive to strangers
2. Plan for when your data could be incorrect
3. Be clear on how you are using their data
4. Always check back on the rules and campaigns
The 6 principles of persuasion
6. Social proof
The language of love...
“A general ‘law of least effort’ applies to cognitive as well
as physical exertion. The law asserts that if there are
several ways of achieving the same goal, people will
eventually gravitate to the least demanding course of
action...laziness is built deep into our nature”
Language that Persuades

4. Use power words
5. Mirror the customer
1. Consumers want to receive marketing via email
2. However they still don’t feel it is useful enough
3. As marketers we can do better
