MarketingSherpa recently released data on why consumers unsubscribe from companies’ email.

“Are you sending an email to someone on your list that is going to add value to their life?”
“Are you doing any A/B testing on subject lines or the content of the email?”
“If you’re not thinking of your customers and giving them value in their lives, why would they open it?”
These quotes are excerpts from my interview with Daniel Incandela, Chief Marketing Officer, Return Path, at the MarketingSherpa Media Center, powered by Cision, at MarketingSherpa Summit 2017. Watch the full interview to get Incandela’s insights into reducing unsubscribes and increasing engagement (to ultimately increase inbox placement).
The data we discussed is based on MarketingSherpa research with 2,400 consumers, sampled to reflect a close match to the U.S. population’s demographics. We asked consumers:
Why do you unsubscribe from the email lists of companies with which you are [satisfied or unsatisfied]? Select all that apply.
