E-mail marketing refers to a digital marketing strategy to promote products or services using emails. It is the strategy to develop effective relationships with potential customers or clients on marketing channels. Email marketing is completely paperless and it directly targets the particular customer to offer various benefits and to keep them informed and updated.
COVID-19 scenario analysis:
As consumers across the country became increasingly relegated to their homes, and in-store shopping mostly unavailable, they were forced to turn to online shopping. They continued to spend more time online for retail purposes and marketing emails naturally became a go-to resource for product discovery and potential discounts.
Aside from the now-common need-based items (e.g., toilet paper) came the need for other products, such as homeschooling accessories and other at-home activities like puzzles and exercise equipment, leading to consumers increasingly opening related retailer emails.
There was substantial decrease in email marketing click rate due to COVID-19. The decrease in click rates is a factor of economic and need-based shopping versus poor CTAs or marketing copy. The increase in open rates indicate consumers had an interest in shopping and were receptive to receiving trusted brand communications, but there was more browsing of emails than action within them.
Conversion rates increased as we moved closer to the heart of the pandemic. Increase in conversion rates and decrease in click rates indicate a consumer shift to intent-based shopping. That is when consumers identified products of interest or need inside of an email they went through and completed their orders without hesitation.
