Mobile email clicks accounted for almost 40% of all email clicks in Q4 2014, according to the latest quarterly report from Yesmail. Mobile’s click share was buoyed by a 20% year-over-year increase in click-to-open rates, from 10.3% in Q4 2013 to 12.6% in Q4 2014. Yesmail ties that result to an increase in the number of emails using responsive design, as brands exclusively using responsive design in their emails enjoyed a 40% higher mobile CTO than those who didn’t use responsive design in any of their campaigns (14.1% vs. 10.1%).
Even so, mobile CTOs continued to trail their desktop equivalents in Q4 (12.6% and 21.6%, respectively), as has been the case for some time. Nevertheless, a mobile email click returned more than double the average revenue as a desktop email click (40 cents and 19 cents, respectively). Source: Yesmail
