The popular use of an email marketing tactic does not always reflect its effectiveness. We've taken a deeper dive into the analysis of tactics in this week’s chart to gain a better understanding.
This chart incorporates three sets of data on relevancy tactics. The level of effectiveness is shown on the vertical axis while the degree of difficulty to implement the tactic is shown on the horizontal axis. The size of each sphere represents its level of usage.
This chart shows, for example, that the tactic of segmenting email campaigns based on behavior is used more often than automatically sending email based on triggers, which is more effective and less difficult to implement.
