NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Experian Marketing Services, a global provider of integrated consumer insight and targeting, data quality and cross-channel marketing, showed that overall email volume increased 11.2 percent in Q4 2013 versus Q4 2012, according to its 2013 Q4 Email Benchmark Report.

The benchmark report's spotlight on coupons in emails reveals a rise in coupon campaigns. Coupons provide a means of offering cross-channel promotions and allow customers to customize their experience by choosing the venue for their transactions, whether it is in-store, online or mobile. Coupons and special offers commonly are delivered via email. These findings are further demonstrated by Experian Marketing Services' 2013 holiday season email trends and analysis study that found a 50 percent year-over-year increase in the number of campaigns offering coupons.

Additional findings include:

  • Emails with coupons have higher open, click, and transactions rates and generate revenue per email that is 48 percent higher than other promotional emails
  • Coupons that are redeemable in-store were the most frequent redemption type offered, as 80 percent of the coupons reviewed were able to be redeemed in-store, while 70 percent were able to be redeemed online.
  • Twenty-one percent of in-store coupons emailed encouraged customers to show the coupon in the store on their mobile device

"Our 2013 Q4 Email Benchmark Report offers evidence that using emails with cross-channel promotions, such as coupons, is key to creating high levels of user engagement from customers," said Peter DeNunzio, general manager for cross-channel marketing at Experian Marketing Services. "For example, welcome email campaigns with coupons had a 2.5 times higher transaction rate compared to welcome emails without coupons."

Industry performance analysis
The Q4 2013 benchmark report also reveals a breakdown of specific industries using Q4 year-over-year analysis for 2013, compared to 2012.

"Helping marketers to enhance their understanding across various industries, our report offers performance analysis within the categories of business products and services; consumer products and services; catalogers; media and entertainment; multichannel retailers; publishers; and travel," added DeNunzio.
