Likewise only a small number of consumers said they would be less likely to go in-store to purchase because of a marketing email.

“There is a tremendous opportunity for brands to strategically connect email marketing to in-store, social networking and mobile channels to drive revenue, acquire new subscribers and importantly, connect the dots for cross-channel measurement and attribution,” said Simone Barratt, managing director at e-Dialog International.

A recent report from GetReponse found the inclusion of social media sharing buttons in email generated click-through rates around 30% higher than email sent with no sharing options.

A Twitter button proved to be the most effective, increasing click-through rates by 40% but in order to garner the highest rates, around 55%, more than one social media button needed to be incorporated.
