10 funky digital marketing stats from this week

This week's stats include YouTube ads, emojis and email, product descriptions, digital budgets and much much more.

They're funky, because I've run out of good adjectives.

For more statistics to build a business case or simply impress your friends, see the Internet Statistics Compendium.


According to 32,198 emails, most retailers use boring subject lines

Ah, the humble subject line. Gatekeeper of your offers. The crux of your campaigns. And the source of unrivalled consternation.

According to the vast majority of the N subject lines we analysed, the answers are no, yes, and probably not as much as you’d like.

The findings, which come from a report by Knotice, show that smartphones now make up 29% of the total while tablets account for 12%.

This increased from 26% and 11% respectively in the first half of 2012.

And despite the increasing dominance of Google’s Android operating system, iOS devices account for the vast majority of mobile email opens.
