One of the unique aspects of Econsultancy events is that they focus on having marketers speak to other marketers.

Whether its roundtable discussions, webinars, or more standard speaker/audience get-togethers, marketers get to hear from other people in their industry about the latest trends, best practices, and frustrations with the industry.

66% of marketers say email delivers ‘excellent’ or ‘good’ ROI

Two-thirds of marketers (66%) state that email delivers an ‘excellent’ or ‘good’ ROI, with 8% of businesses achieving more than half of their sales through this channel.

The findings come from the new Econsultancy/Adestra Email Marketing Industry Census 2013, which shows that despite the ever-increasing toolkits and techniques available to marketers, email still holds its place as a channel that offers a strong ROI.

The 2013 version of this report covers new and changing trends within this key marketing channel, and its integration with other areas of marketing and key business functions.

But in spite of the strong potential for delivering a great return in investment, companies are spending too little time on optimisation of campaigns compared to design and content.
