The 2018 Australian Email Benchmark inaugural report has been developed by Australian email specialist The Orchard Agency in partnership with online business publication SmartCompany to assess the current and future state of email marketing.
The report is based on a major research study that surveyed 400+ Australian businesses of multiple sizes across a range of industries.
Email marketing is not dead
It was revealed that companies who invested 20% or more of their marketing budget on email are 8x more likely to see sales boosted by 50%.
In fact, 24% of all businesses surveyed wanted to increase their marketing spend or at very least, maintain it (44%).
The numbers are in
Brands who had a dedicated email marketing resource saw an average jump of 17% in their ROI.
And surprisingly, businesses that sent more emails (10+ per month) had the highest ROI at $31.87 for every $1 spent.
According to 40% of businesses, those who implemented a marketing automation strategy received a 35% better ROI than those who didn’t.
However, despite these facts, the report revealed that 84% of businesses could not measure their ROI of their email channel at all.
